Official 2D-->3D Samsung BD-D6700 Owners Thread - Page 5

post #121 of 366
Hi I'm looking to buy my first 3D Blu-Ray player to go with my Samsung HLT6187 DLP with 3DA-1 adapter, UC DLP Link Glasses, all being new & never used.

My main thing is 2D to 3D conversion & dual HDMI.

I'm look at buying either the Panasonic DMP-BDT310 VS Samsung BD-D6700 & want the best 2D to 3D conversion.

I already own a PS3 and I know it plays 3D Blu-Rays but it doesn't convert 2D to 3D, so my other question is, would buying either of these players be the best way to go seeing it will only convert disc's and not something like a HD MKV file & if so what would be a better way to go in regards to best quality 2D to 3D conversions for 2D MP4,MKV,M2TS & Blu-Ray Discs?

Happened about 8 times or so during the movie.

Anyone else experienced any sound "hiccups" when streaming Netflix movies? I'm going to try out some more titles to see if it was just isolated to this one or not, but wanted to get input from owners if they noticed this or not on other titles.

Edit: Tuesday I loaded up the GI Joe movie from Netflix, no streaming or sound problems whatsoever, played perfectly. Maybe it was isolated to the other movie, or Netflix had some lingering issues from their downtime Sunday they had to work out.

Yeah I would lay it at either Netflix or temporary connection issues.

I also played "Battle: Los Angeles" blu-ray movie. Played great. I bitstreamed it to my Denon and the dialogue audio seemed awfully low. I had to pump up my center channel quite a bit. Is that normal for a bitstreamed DTS-HD master 5.1 feed, or is it just how this movie was mixed?

Is your set up properly calibrated? In any case I don't have that particular BD title, but it certainly have nothing to do with DTS HD MA, or bitsreaming, either improper calibration, or mixing can cause such issue.

I am in exactly the same situation (I want the best 2D-to-3D conversion) and decided to go with the Samsung for two reasons. 1) I have seen the 2D-to-3D conversion on two different Panasonic BDT-series players and I wasn't impressed. 2) I have a home theater PC that I use almost exclusively for 2D-to-3D conversion of standard DVDs. I have two software packages for conversion, DDD's Tridef and Cyberlink's PowerDVD 11. Both are fine products. In fact, they are so good (okay, I'll say it, amazing) that I think of them as more like black magic than high technology. I did some research and found out that the Samsung Blu-ray players (as well as their 3D HDTVs) use Tridef for 2D-to-3D conversion of Blu-rays. That settled the matter for me. I'd give you first-hand impressions but my player hasn't arrived yet; I just purchased it online this weekend.

Cool, and also let me know if it plays MKV's and other formats off a external Hard drive and if it can also convert them to 3D.

I have had some audio issues with my 6700 on a few discs. Called Samsung customer tech support and was told that Samsung is aware of the problems. Additionally, was told that a new firmware is coming out soon...maybe this month. They could not tell me when it was coming out. It seems like there is always a new firmware upgrade coming out. It appears to me that there are a number of issues with the various encryptions on the blu-ray discs that is causing player problems for all manufacturers. I guess we can thank the hackers for most of these problems that the manufacturers and studios are trying to prevent from getting hacked. Us legit consumers get the short end of the stick.

I have had very bad audio distortion on a couple of blu-ray discs on DTS HD master playback. The majority of discs I have had no problems at all with audio or video.

Is the player set to bitstream? If yes I don't see how that is the player's fault, all decoding happens at the decoding end, as the player just passes what's on the disc. If you let the player decode and output as PCM would be a different thing as the player do all the decoding, do you recall the titles of which you have problems with?


Personally I had only issues with DTS CD's I heard some pops.

I bought the D6700 yesterday as my D7500 died...wouldn't recognize any disc. I think that 3D crosstalk is greater using this player with my Samsung 55c8000 than with the D7500. However, the dvd upscale capabilites are phenominal. The best I have ever owned...and I've owned a few players.
post #131 of 366
After more time spent playing with the 6700, I retract my statement about more crostalk than the 7500. Not true. Excellent player, phenominal upscaling ability!!
post #132 of 366
Hey guys just bought this player and I'm loving it!!! My only problem is getting the BD player to read my Seagate Go Flex 3TB hard drive (USB 3.0) I'm trying to play my 1080P MP4 (H.264) movies off the hard drive, since I can't stream them, but the Samsung USB won't read it for some reason. Anyone have a similar problem or maybe a solution? This is one of the main reasons I picked this Player was for the USB slot, so I can play my movies off my hard drive (that and for the plex app, which I just found out, doesn't transcode yet and thus can't stream my high quality movies without stuttering)

The Hun....Yes, you are right. I am so used to running the audio by way of bitstream to my Elite receiver and letting it decode it that I did not think of trying it using PCM to let the player decode it. The troublesome discs work just fine with using the PCM setting...therefore the decoder on my receiver probably needs a firmware upgrade. I do like letting the receiver decode the audio so that you see the DTS Master Hd or True Dolby indication pop up on the receiver. Anyway thanks for the suggestion.

Read a good review on the player, gonna get one on order from Cleveland Plasma.
post #135 of 366
After only 16 days, the player has started to not recognize discs. This is the reason I replaced the D7500. It's time to leave Samsung. Great player that played for 16 days. RIDICULOUS!

You are 100% right about teh crappy quality of Panasonic' 2D->3D.....I tried both players, and Samsung does a decent job in adding depth. However Panasonic almost cheats by just moving the image forward or backward (based on the so called 3D depth) with respect to the projector screen and doesnt add any noticeable depth in the image itself.

Mine arrives today, hope to watch priest 2d tonight.

Here's the followup to my previous post: The 3D-to-3D conversion is excellent! That's why I got this player, and I'm LOVING it. Since I've been putting in tons of overtime at work, I've only watched three Blu-ray movies using the conversion thus far (STARSHIP TROOPERS, Peter Jackson's KING KONG, and THE GOOD, THE BAD AND THE UGLY) and was extremely impressed with the results.

I bought this BD player for the 2 HDMI ports (to use with my old AV) and 2D->3D conversion.

I see that there are many 3D blurays released on amazon.uk site that only play on Region B (US is Region A) but are either much cheaper than US versions or some are not even release in US....wondering if this player would play Regon B as well ? if not, are there any hacks that would allow it ?

I can see the setup/dashboard screen, but as soon as I load a disc... nada.

why do you only want 480i?

fala:

Did you get the D6700 working with the 3DXL yet? I have the same setup with the 3dxl and HD66 and may get the 6700 mainly for the 2D-3D conversion capability if it operates with the rest of the components. Let us know.

I have the same setup. HD66 with the 3DXL. I ordered the Samsung D6700 yesterday and should be receiving it sometime next week. I'll keep you posted on what happens. If it doesn't workout as Fala said, I'll keep it regardless and just use it with my 3DTV. From what I'm hearing, this Samsung unit has the best 2D to 3D conversion so it would be foolish for me to return it. And I'll just keep the present 3D bluray player I have hooked up to my HD66 3DXL setup.

Regardless I'll keep you posted on what happens.
post #144 of 366
What I am suspecting however is that we may need to purchase a pair of Samsung 3D Glasses and Emitter to make it work properly with the 3DXL. Can't say for sure but I have noticed that Fala was looking into that on other threads in this forum. If the Samsung's 6700 Bluray Player 2D to 3D conversion looks good on my 3DTV, then I'd say it's worth the extra cost for the 3DXL.

But won't know for sure until we hear from Fala.
post #145 of 366
Heard from Fala.
Said he used a Firmware update. Didn't mention which. But like I said, I'll see how it works out for me once I receive my BD6700.

Alex - Have you had time to see if your BD6700 2D-3D conversion works OK with the 3DXL?? What firmware upgrade did fala use - the 3DXL or the BD6700 firmware?
post #147 of 366
Oops! ALex - Didn't see until now that you will not get your unit until sometime this week. Will be anxiously waiting for your comments.

Got it and it works! Had to use the BD6700 firmware upgrade.
The 2D to 3D converter is awesome! Bought the Star Wars Blurays and they look unbelieveable with this 3D Bluray converter.

Only glitch is, it looks 10 times better when used with a 3DTV than a HD66/3DXL setup. Reason being it's 720P vs. 1080P. With my 3DTV the images are poping, rich in color and depth. With 720P Projection, the picture has more of a flat depth look. Much like your adverage 2D to 3D converter on a 3DTV.

But again, when using this Samsung BD6700 2D-3D converter with a 3DTV, it's mind blowing! The complete opposite of the TVs 2D-3D converter.
LOVIN IT!

When you get a chance, pickup the Star Wars Boxset on Bluray and get ready to get your mind blown away!

I'm enjoying this Samsung BD6700 more than my HD66/3DXL setup.

Anyone ordered a 3D movie on Vudu yet with this player?
