Yes. It's been borked for me since I tried getting on over 30 minutes ago. At one point I got on from my 360, but then that went out too.

Both XBL and PSN have been having issues today.

The bigger question is why you needed to do all that just to get it to ramp up to 1080P. When the 1080P stream is only around 10Mb/s.

When I use imgBURN with my Pioneer drive and a rip lock FOX disc, it will still show 8X max or 12x max. It will get up to 2.4x or so and then drop to 2X.

I like the S6200 much better for BD playback than my PS4. Plus the PS4 uses several times the power. But if you want the BD player to do all the audio decoding then I would pick the PS4 over the...
