Well, I have watched this movie (agree that it was crap) played on my Samsung K8500 through my 5100 to my JVC projector w/o problems. Didn't appear washed out.

Do you have video processing enabled...

I'm not seeing any problems with my Ethereal DPL Labs certified cables (2 and 3 meter) between my UDH-K8500 and my CX-A5100 to my JVC DLA-X750 projector. I also have a Philips BDP-7501 UHD Blu-ray...

Well, since the the Oppo 105 do have the somewhat better DACs (ESS9018 vs. the ESS9016 in the 5100) there might be some advantage to having the Oppo do the conversion, but I think that will only...

Did you access your unit with ipaddr/setup? If you simply used the IP address you will get the default web app interface instead.

I'm doing that as well (actually I do play, 2 sec delay, stop) for power on. Kind of a nuisance, but it works. The real problem is that there appears to not be any way to discretely turn the player...

I found a discrete power off hex code that apparently works for older Philips Blu-ray players but on the BDP-7501 it's simply another Power Toggle. Seems that manufacturers are dropping the discrete...

Does anyone know if the BDP7501 has discrete power on/off IR codes, and if so what they are? I use a Philips TSU9400 Pronto remote and am looking for hex codes for these functions.

I believe that this will be the case as well. The CX-A5100 came out 2 years following the CX-A5000 so it does appear that they are on a two year upgrade cycle with the prepros.

I believe that depends on how it is mixed. As I understand it (from 20+ years ago) Dolby used phase differences of the sound between the two channels to determine when and where to place some sounds...

Great to hear that you got your blown 2050 replaced (with a 2060). But what peaked my curiosity was just how loud was the music playing when you had it cranked up in 9-channel stereo, and how did you...

As I understand it, the 105D is only *better* than the 103D if you are using the analog outputs. If not then it is only more expensive.

I'm going to have to go along with it being at least wrong (if not a dud). It took me to a page with an ACER laptop, a Philips Blu-ray player, and a Benq DLP projector. No HDMI cables to be found.

That would explain it I suppose. My Outlaw amps (7900 & 7700) don't have input level controls so it never occurred to me to want to do it.

I never set my volume on my 5100 higher than -20. Is it common for others to go much higher than that? Even as high as -6 would require the use of ear protection in my room.

What about a model to replace the 103? I have no interest in the features of the 105 and consequently wouldn't want to pay for them. It would be great if it was priced closer to the 103.

What "less software features" for the CX-A5100 are you referring to? I don't see that to be the case. The only thing missing from the 5100 is the 15Hz peq ability as far as I can see. This may be an...
