Just picked up this player this afternoon and setup was very easy. Below are my speed test findings. All times are average ± 1 second:
BD Live turned off
- Power Off/Standby to No Disc message - 12 seconds. The 8 second claim is accurate, but this is only to the JVC logo, which doesn't allow you to input a disc at that point.
- Tray open from Power Off/Standby to No Disc message - 3 seconds. The benefit of this is that you can insert the disc and sit down, however you still have to wait approximately 18 seconds for the disc (Batman Begins blu-ray) to boot up and load to the Warning logo. I think I wouldn't mind sitting during the additional 18 seconds though.
- Load Disc (from tray open to Warning Logo) Blu-ray Batman Begins 20 seconds. This essentially equates to the approximate time of item 2.
- Power Off/Standby to Warning Logo with disc in tray - Blu-ray Batman Begins 22 seconds. I know most recommend not leaving a disc in the tray when powered off, but I thought I would provide this time anyway.
When performing the speed tests for lines 3 and 4 the reading of the disc took over 1 minute and 30 seconds on 3 separate occasions. Once it returned the error message Disc Error and the player ejected the disc. On the 2 other readings I chose to eject the disc on 1 and power off the player on the other. The disc was clean and in pristine condition.
The blue lights on the front panel are too bright for me. Hopefully, a future firmware update will allow you to dim or turn it off the lights. The blue was very distracting this afternoon and I can only see this getting worse with nighttime viewing. Some may like it, but I don't.
Last, every time I turned the player on I received the following message from my display The Device Cannot be operated. Please check connection. (CEC 100). I changed inputs and swapped out HDMI cables, but nothing corrected this. I think there may be a setting in my display or the JVC that is not getting along. This is strange because my other equipment doesn't exhibit this behavior.
Per your request powered off eject time? is approximately 1 sec.
