Unknown, but there is a mail in form to get the IMAX Under the sea 3D BD free if you buy a 580 or a 585. You Google: LG BX585 and it's a PDF.

Are the Pannys the one 3D BD players that have the dual HDMI outputs for HD audio in a 1.3 receiver?

I read in another forum (DirectTV) that there were some 3D Blu-ray players out there which included a feature to turn off the 3D detection feature to allow 3D thru an HDMI 1.3 AVR. Has anyone heard about a player that can do this?

The BDP-S370 Blu-ray Disc player features Blu-ray 3D playback, Wi-Fi Internet connectivity, and instant streaming of online video content from the BRAVIA Internet Video platform.

Is this for real? I copied this from the Sears web site.

I think you might need new glasses, the 570 is a 3D player not the 370

I went to the Sears website and put in BDP-S370 in the search. In the product description, there it is. I have been following this thread and did not see this model listed.This is why I asked if this model was 3D.
I have been pricing 3D players and around $150 is the lowest so far.I think I will wait for Black Friday.

Marantz UD7005

Quote:
Features Geared Toward Custom-Installation Market

In addition to their leading-edge performance and innovative content sharing capabilities, the UD7005 and UD5005 will both be welcomed by integrators for the way they can be easily retrofitted for installation to existing home entertainment systems. Notably, both units are designed to be packaged as a system with Marantz A/V receivers, providing the same functionality as Marantz' flagship preamp/processor. The IR flasher input and output add system-wide control capability and the Ethernet port allows for firmware updates and RS232 support in the UD7005.

Just putting this in here for anyone like me who wants a 3D-capable player with the Quick Replay feature (moves backward by 10 second increments). Not sure why this feature has been largely done away with, but it's essential to me. Anyhow, if anyone happens to be looking, Sony is the only manufacturer I've found who still has it - would love to know of any others.

The 3D add-on kit I'm considering includes the BDC5900, the entry level player. I've been comparing that model to others on the Samsung site and I see that the BDC6900 has a gig of HDD space, while the 5900 has none.

How might that affect me? While I'm not looking to store files, I do want to take full advantage of media playing (from an external USB device though) and I may want to join Netflix. Do the streaming services in any way use the HD? Maybe for buffering? My internet connection is slow at around 3.5 mbps. Will that be enough to stream, or do streaming services use that hard drive space for buffering? What are the disadvantages of not having a HDD?

Thanks!

Here are the specs for the 5900:

You need to look at the manual to see if you can add storage via a port. It is a BD Live player so that is a common option

The manual says it takes USB storage. It states:

A USB memory flash stick can be connected here and used as storage when
connected to BD-LIVE. It can also be used for software upgrades and MP3/JPEG/DivX/MKV/MP4 playback.

I assume I can install a USB drive also??? So does this make the whole issue of a hard drive moot? I still don't know if the unit would use this storage as a buffer, say if I were streaming Netflix with my slow internet.

Some players come with internal storage - some don't and need external storage to make BD Live (network features) work. 1GB is the norm

IMO, yes but you need to look at both manuals (6900 and 5900) to see what Samsung is telling you what you can do with the storage.

I am not sure about that. You can email/call Samsung with your questions and see what happens.

I'm hoping for a recommendation.


Here is my situation. I was planning on using the PS3 as a 3D Blu Ray player. Then, I find out that if I use the PS3 for 3D Blu Rays, I get the 3D, but I don't get lossless audio at the same time. I've got a nice sound setup, and my receiver can do lossless, so I'm thinking I should just get a standalone. Thing is, I wasn't ever thinking I was going to need to go this route, and I don't really want to have to spend a bunch of cash on this.

Are there any cheapo 3D compatible blu ray players that will fit the bill? I'm going to have to use a HDMI repeater with it, because my AVR isn't 3D compliant. I know that one Panasonic player has two hdmi outputs, but isn't it like $400 or something? I'm trying to spend more like $180. I think monoprice sells a hdmi repeater that would probably work for like $65 shipped. I'm going to need one of those anyways for use with the PS3 and 3D PS3 games with lossless sound like Wipeout HD and Super Stardust HD.
