Oh, I do remember now that one time I did have to do a "hard reset" on the 5200 because some things were not working right(can't remember exactly the details). It might be worth a try to do a hard...

That's very odd. Have you applied all available firmware updates? If so, I think this is going to be a matter for Denon support, as it appears that most of the options supposed to be there are just...

My 809 was great, never had any problem with it for years but I am aware that a lot of people have had problems. What does really bug me is that Onkyo never provided a SiriusXM firmware update for...

I just don't see how Sony is going to sell the 75X900E, considering that one can get a 75X940D for less, AND that, according to this review, the E series may have less dimming zones than the 940D.

Yeah, I wanted a 75" with Dolby Vision. I guess that was a pipe dream.:eek:

Yeah, I really want a 75", and I'd like better blacks than the 850D series, so that leaves out both the 930D(65" is the largest) and the 75 inch 850D. I'm trying to find out some details on the 850D...

I have the Denon X5200W, and also am using HDMI connection. My BDP-83 bitstreams my SACDs as DSD, and the DENON plays it fine. I assume the X4200 would as well, but not sure. I also play DVD-Audio...

No, no final decision yet. Lots of factors involved. I actually haven't even thought about the finish yet.

As to Focus, in any version, vs Aeris, James explained that it is the move from the 7"...

203 better for Blu-ray than BDP-83?

OK, well I finally got my 203 installed, and have watched a few Blu-ray titles. I connected the 203 to my Denon AVR-X5200 receiver via the supplied HDMI cable, and set the 203 HDMI digital output to...

Sony 75" 850D now seems down to $2500. Would it be worth stepping up to for picture quality? Admittedly, no Dolby Vision. And I wonder if it will drop even more to around $2K?

75" 850D, or E?

Was looking yesterday at the 75" 850D at BB, and looks really good. I feel that, from my viewing distance, I really need 75" in order to really resolve and benefit from 4K resolution. I'd love a...

If using HDMI connection, a good condition used oppo BDP-83 should do you fine. Plays those formats as well as the new Blu-ray Audio discs.

For me, whether or not to go OLED is largely about the degree of ABL, and secondarily about image retention/burn-in and motion performance. What can you tell us about the degree of ABL with LG OLED...
