No, many brands of bd players sold in us don't play pal DVD of any kind. Sony is one of them.

Decent about a decade ago :) J1900 is a low power (5W) Atom processor. If your processor is beaten by this, you can be safe to say, it belongs to trash bin.

It is definitely going to happen. Almost all current UHD TVs can't support HDCP 2.2 and 18gbps bandwidth on the same port. That's means you can't get copy-protected 4:4:4 video stream.

IIRC, Sony EU deliberately removed a few features from 6200 that was on US version because they had the 7200 planed from day one. US version 7200 is a last minute deal, not pre-planned. Too late for...

Last time I tried, it can play only 2.0 stereo only regardless of auto track, not surrounds. So there is really no point to me, IMO. My $50 Sony BD player can play much better than that (full DTS-HD...

Funny, I would say the exact same thing to 7200 as well. 6200 can do everything 7200 can (after it is identical inside) at a fraction of the cost.


At the end of the day, I really don't care...

OT, but by the end of 2015 or early 2016, most new LCD TVs will be using Quantum Dots Film technology. It offers a little bit more color but does not solve any of the LCD inherent flaw like black...

No, the other way around. For early adopters of current 4K TV, you will have to compromise a little bit on ultimate PQ from UHD BD players. To be fully capable, I'd only buy 4K TV AFTER 4K BD dust...

There is a dedicated thread about 4K TV HDMI 2.0 bandwidth on OLED forum here. The bottom line is almost none of the current 4K TV can do both 18gbps (required for 4:4:4) and HDCP 2.2 on the same...

Nope. They say this summer but who knows. They said similar thing last year and didn't happen.

The 4K BD spec hasn't been finalized. From what we can tell so far, you will need brand new player, no current player will be upgraded to. Possibly brand new AVR as well to handle the bandwidth, new...

Who knows. For a $100 player, I don't think Sony spent a lot on it to achieve maximum 4K upscale quality.

If I remembered correctly, Sony adds up all the different apps it offers in different countries. You can't really get all of them.

What I see here is that your HDMI connection was considered as primary screen by the driver. Your PC monitor as secondary. When you turn off the projector. It is like turning off the primary.
