You've mentioned this a few times before. What settings need to be changed to get the most out of a Panny? I have the BDT230 from 2013 and it doesn't have many picture options.

Considering you have an S6200 I don't see a compelling reason to replace it with this year's model. Other than the 24p support, you're gaining nothing from what I can see.

I considered picking up...

On my 230 Panasonic BD player and S64 I am using HDMI-CEC and that allows me to use my BD player's remote to control the TV volume and input, but the TV remote cannot control the BD player. It's odd,...

Yes, the 360 from Panasonic has a display. One issue with my 2013 Panasonic 230 is that when watching DVDs I noticed that with fast-action animation, such as lip movements, you'll see jagged lines...

That's interesting. I would have thought that the Roku would have more apps and that they would be more current. I still feel that in general a media streamer is a better option, but it is nice that...

I see that BB Online has the S1500 and S3500 available now. The S5500 is still available to pre-order. Last night I was in my local BB and they didn't yet have the new players in stock. Let us know...

The most notable difference is a standalone player is quieter, and more energy efficient. I own a PS3 Slim and a 2013 Panasonic BD player. I even had a Sony S5100 briefly last year. For Blu-ray, I...

I have seen another mention of this in the thread, but I have never noticed it on mine. If you enable 48 Hz mode it may seem to smooth out the motion a bit on 24p sources, like Blu-ray. If that's...

Thanks for pointing out that thread. I am happy with the upscaling from the PS3, I was just curious as to why it doesn't display those columns. No one seems to know.

Best bet is to check the sound bar manual. You can typically find them online. And often you can use the Viera Connect feature to link up the devices.

That said, you may not necessarily have to...

I picked up a Fire TV Stick at Staples last night. Figured I could mull over it while I decide whether or not to keep it. For just over $25 after tax, it's not a bad deal.
