It used to work and remember the last viewed season, but broke a month or so ago.

Thanks. I'd been away from Netflix for a bit so I never saw that build.

Figures. Hopefully they get it fixed as this is just frustrating as is.

I ran into a bit of a problem the other day and i was wondering is anyone knew a fix for this. I took the player to a friends house because he has an HDTV but no Blu ray, but when I connected over HDMI there was no image or sound (TV was a 42" Samsung, but that's all I know) in the end we tried a lot of things and nothing worked so we just switched to a smaller screen, which happened to be a cheaper model than mine (mine is Sony 32Ex400)
post #2494 of 2844
Was your player set to 1080P and does the 42" TV not support 1080P input?

Just recieved my used DVD player Sony BDP-BX37

edit: I'm playing DVDs that I recorded myself w/ my Panasonic DMR-eh75V these DVD usalley have 3 or more titles.

?1.I've read that this player boots up quickly well it takes 1 minute 45 seconds to start to play is this normal?

?2.I kindof prefer to control this player to start playing on it's own can it be programed to come on and give me the option to start play?

?3. when I stop a DVD the menu that comes on I afraid this menu is on for an extended period of time burning a image on my new Plazma TV can the amount of time be reduced ? or even better can the moving Blu ray logo be programmed to come on right away?

Thanks

How can I set my s-470 player to NOT resume a DVD when powering on again ?
I didn't find the setting in the menus ...
post #2498 of 2844
Eject it from the player!
post #2499 of 2844
Ejecting would work or you could push STOP STOP before turning the player off. I've never seen a player with the option to disable the simple one disc resume, Sony DVD players with multi disc resume have a option to disable multi resume but I believe will still resume one disc unless you eject it or do a STOP STOP.
post #2500 of 2844
My 370 does not auto-play when powering on with a disk in it. It will autoplay when I put a disk in and close the drawer. I don't see any options in my menu, either.
post #2501 of 2844
You need to push PLAY and it will resume where you left off. You can push PLAY either after powering it up or from a OFF state.
My guess is shrooms911 turns the player on and it cues up the inserted DVD. If he pushes PLAY it won't start from the beginning but rather resumes where he left off. That's the way I read his question anyway.
Note BDs with Java won't have resume function, they always start from the beginning of the disc.
post #2502 of 2844
BDJava disks vary. Some nice ones do keep track of where you stopped, and pop up a screen asking if you want to resume. Really good ones do that BEFORE going through all the logo's and other crap. For others, you have to hit the green button to set a bookmark, then try and figure out how to get back to it on a restart (no two disks seem to be the same.) Then, there are those nasty ones that just refuse to allow any form of bookmarking.

That was exactly my question. My kids want the same DVD each day... But want it from the beginning.

I usually stop the DVD by powering off the TV, which turns off the Sony player automatically. Now I'll have to Stop it twice before ...
post #2504 of 2844
Have you tried doing an Eject, then just close the tray? I don't think these players will remember a disk once you eject it.
post #2505 of 2844
Did some experimenting with a real DVD (a BD without BDJava encryption should also be similar). On the player's main menu, with the disk highlighted, hit the OPTION button. That should give "Play", "Play from beginning", and "Information Display" options.

Anybody else having this issue?

I was having the same issue. For me, setting the YCbCr/RGB (HDMI) to Auto fixed it for me. If I set it to anything else, I would get the intro and a loading screen then nothing but a black screen.

It's working good, read the updates on the 570 tread. Fix the problems with movies like rio. Don't be afraid.
post #2510 of 2844
Downloaded it and discovered that the 3D content section of streaming apps is no longer accessible. Says "coming soon" or something to that effect.

Good news. Thanks for posting this.

EDIT: Ah I see that this is for the 470. I think I have M03.R.769 which seems to have included some of these fixes. Hopefully, there is also a 370 firmware.
post #2512 of 2844
Hi everyone. I have the Sony BDP-S470 and I have an audio problem. When I play a file (mkv) on a USB-stick (I've tried it with front- and back usb) the subwoofer doesn't kick in. This has always worked fine, but since yesterday it doesn't. The file plays and there is sound, but no bass. When I play a DVD/Blu-ray everything is okay and there is plenty of bass.
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

The new update was, at first, a nice surprise. Netflix (which is 90% of what this box does for me now) got fixed so that, at least, it remembers where you left off within a series and puts you back there.

I'd still like to find a PS3-like Netflix interface without having to get a PS3 and wonder if the more advanced BD players have it.

However, last night the experience was entirely annoying. Netflix suddenly only had 3 lines of options:

-Instant Queue
-New TV
-New Movies

That was it. I couldn't get to Recently Viewed nor could I add anything to the queue. To watch a series I had been watching I had to go search for it again. One day of improvement and now the next day it's worse than it was before.

What is wrong with Sony these days?

Why do you automatically assume it was a Sony issue and not a Netflix issue?
post #2515 of 2844
Because it worked fine on my Xbox 360 at the same time. I suppose it's possible that it could have still been Netflix but that seems remote and, frankly, this interface is so poor that I can't help but blame Sony. Don't get me wrong, I'm a Sony fan with a number of Sony products forefront in my home. I just find their implementations with regard to this to be very haphazard.
post #2516 of 2844
When devices, or at least some, connect to Netflix, they download the interface. The device usually only has a basic core, but Netflix provides the user interface. That is why the interface can change without any firmware update.

Obviously odd things happen, such as being stuck in low-res until NF made the account option to change resolution available. I do hope the 'remember the last viewed SEASON' but is fixed.

The roku 2 has the same interface as the ps3, subtitles and dd 5.1.
post #2518 of 2844
That's great! I wanted to get some people who fell in love with Netflix while on vacation (brought a PS3 down) a NRD but didn't want to spend $250 a pop. $100 a pop is much more manageable.
post #2519 of 2844
Panasonic 110/210/310 also have the same interface as the PS3 and Roku 2. Better bang for the buck IMO since the 110 is around $115 and is also a great blu-ray player. You can sell the Avatar 3D disc that comes free by mail and get most of your money back ($100 or so).
post #2520 of 2844
Excellent info! That's what I was hoping to find out about. I may grab one of those for myself.
