I'll answer my own question:

The Vudu 3D is awesome on this player FWIW.
post #152 of 366
Thanks for that verification larrimore on the 3D VUDU. I have been trying to get my LG BD 580 player to access the 3D VUDU and it will not go. Glad the BD6700 will do it.

I watched a bunch of the available titles last night (free two minute previews and demos). Looks almost as good as a 3D BD.

I have yet to connect my Wi-Fi BD6700. You have to purchase a WI-FI connector. But I'm really in no rush for that. I'm just happy the blurays look so great. Both 3D and 2D to 3D. At least with my blurays it's %100 Free.

I can live without Pay Per View. Especially when I have HBO 3D On Demand on my Comcast Cable. All 3D movies are for free. And it's everything from AVATAR to MEGAMIND.

I would like to know if anyone has streamed any 1080p .mkv files (SBS or Over/Under) or other video files through the BD6700? Work OK??

This may be a stupid question, but does this player allow me to utilize "Dolby True HD" and "DTS HD Master" via the HDMI output into my Rotel RSX 1550 receiver?

The player supports HDMI 1.4 so yes, it supports both formats as long as your Rotel can handle them. If your Rotel only supports say 1.2, it will likely output DD 5.1 to it.

I see my Rotel's spec sheets mentions:

Expanded HDMI v1.3a ports x 4 with Deep Color and xvYCC
Dolby® TrueHD, Dolby Digital Plus and dts-HD Master Audio, dts HD Hi-Resolution


So I assume I should be ok, right? If my player suports HDMI 1.4 and the Rotel 1.3a...what does this mean? What version HDMI cable do I need, or does it not matter?

Uh, no. The 6700 has built in wireless, no connector necessary. It also supports both frequencies (I have both). Go into the setup and set that puppy up. Vudu is awesome on this unit.

You aren't talking about needing an access point are you?

You should be fine. 1.3 added support for the advanced codecs. 1.4 added 3d support. The difference between 1.3 and 1.3b is the added audio return channel which allows 2-way connection so you can hear the audio from the TV through a receiver with only one cable, IIRC.

The upconversion on this player is also unbelieveable. We pulled out one of our favorite movies last night, "The Glass House" and watched on the player. This is a year 2000 DVD and we were floored. It is as good as and sharper than the Reon processor built into my Mitsubishi projector.

Your cables should be fine to transfer the audio codecs you are asking about. Your Rotel likely displays the codec it is outputting and it sounds like it fully supports the HD codecs.

If you feel it doesn't, click on that "Monoprice" link on the top of this page for HDMI cables on the cheap. Best of luck.

Yeah, I totally agree. I also have a Panasonic and Sony Bluray player and this Samsung BD-D6700 totally BLOWS THEM AWAY! Incredible. That was the first thing I noticed. And now understand why stores like Best Buy always use Samsungs Bluray players on their floor displays.

For the first time, my HDTV is now showing movies in that real Life-Like look you always see in Best Buy store displays. Again, just incredible!
post #164 of 366
is anyone here using their 6700 with a Denon receiver? I just got a Denon 2112 and i am experiencing massive handshake delays in getting the Denon to pick up the 6700's signal (audio or video), and to a lesser extent the same issue (sometimes) with my PS3. it usually takes about 30 seconds after playing a disc for the video to lock in. it's solid after it locks but it takes forever, and when i go to 2d-3d mode, it takes even longer to sync back up. Just wondering if I need to exchange my 2112 or 6700...

If you become discriminating then Home Theater is very exciting. If you follow the herd mentality, then expect pay double and then do it every year. Then finally get 2D-->3D conversion in 2012.

I recommend the 70" Sharp model 735, 3D, 240Hz display at ~3.5K too. The bright but dark low reflections screen is great for family rooms and daytime 3D viewing to boot.

I have a Denon 1910 and have not encountered any such problem with the 6700.

I'm running a Denon receiver (3310) with no issues. Problem is, you need to find someone running a xx12 receiver. I know the xx10 receivers do not support HDMI 1.4 (3D and ARC) so users of previous receivers will be of little help. I bought the 6700 due to its dual HDMI outs which allow me to send 2D content and audio to the receiver while 3D content goes directly to the TV. If I was to venture a guess, given that you are having problems with both the 6700 and PS3, I would suspect the receiver. I run the 6700 and PS3 flawlessly with 2D content.

it's strange, last night it started working a lot better. when using a 2d-3d conversion it took about 10 seconds to synch back up with the receiver, but overall it seems to be working better now. i'll keep an eye on it.

after the problems reared their ugly head again, and after switching cables and still having the handshake problem i decided to exchange the denon 2112 for another one, and i am still having issues with the samsung 6700 (but not the ps3). When i switch from 3d content back to 2d content (like going back to the player's menu from a 3d movie, or switching back to 2d from a 3d conversion), the receiver does not want to see the signal again unless i switch inputs and go back to it. i will try running the hdmi straight to my projector's second input and see if this is still happening.

anyway it's either just something weird with the denon 2112 not liking the switch back to 2d from 3d (which i suspect because even though the ps3 didn't have the same problems i only tested one instance of it) or something funky with my samsung

Do you mean specifically 3D .mkv files? I've streamed non-3D 1080p .mkv files from my PC to my BD-6700 via AllShare software and they played perfectly. This was through a powerline ethernet adapter too.

In the tools area for 3D where do you like to set the depth feature?

i've found that anything less than 5 isn't enough and that anything over 5 is too much.

so, 5.
post #173 of 366
if someone with a 6700 could do me a favor i'd appreciate it - trying to troubleshoot a handshake issue.

after pressing stop on a 3d bluray, is your samsung menu screen sending a 3d flag to your display?

When I am watching a 3d bluray and i press stop, i am immediately taken to the samsung menu but my projector still thinks it's in 3d mode...it displays the main samsung menu fine, though. all is good, unless i do anything like go to netflix, eject the disc, etc, anything that would necessarily be have to be in 2d mode, then the signal just drops and my projector can't pick up the signal - it's like something is getting confused somewhere between the samsung, my receiver (denon 2112) and my new projector (optoma hd3300). switching inputs away and back on my receiver remedies it 100% of the time, it's just annoying not being able to revert out of 3d mode in the samsung menu after leaving the 3d disc.

any info apprectiated.

I've been having a problem getting this player to play certain Disney and Universal new blu ray releases (Lion King, Fast Five)

The problem is listed in this thread since it is one that spans across several units and not just the BD-D6700

http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...1#post21133914

The only good news for now is that I have gotten confirmation that there is a new firmware in the works
post #175 of 366
My player no longer is able to connect to internet....it cant detect any of my wireless routers...any ideas on what i can try ? thanks

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!

I also noticed that this player's 2D to 3D conversion is excellent! I compared it to the 2D to 3D conversion done by my 2011 Samsung D8000 HDTV and I agree: this blu ray player's 3D conversion is much better than the TV's. Now if they would just release a firmware update so I can play certain movies I'll be a happy customer

Connect using an ethernet cable. That takes all the guesswork out of the equation and you'll have a faster connection. If you need one long enough and for less money check this site's sponsors or Amazon

Well, I have finally picked out a worthy Blu-Ray player which is able to play 3D as well as wireless internet connection.

Samsung BD-D6700

I found this player at the Best Buy in the Magnolia section on discount because it was a open box, maybe a display. With money saved on the discount, I purchased the Best Buy warranty. I picked the Samsung BD-D6700 up because it recieved good reviews by some of the mags out there.

This Blu-ray player is much better than the Pioneer BDP-330 I bought for $70 on open box.

The Anynet+ feature is my number one favorite feature. It allows the remote from the Blu-ray player to work through my Samsung TV. This is perfect because my Blu-Ray player sets low on the ground and it's IR eye is often blocked by my table. This is truly form that follows function.

If you have a low mounted Blu-ray player which gets blocked like mine, this is the player for you. Also, I love the dot matrix display which is a touch screen. I think that is a nice touch of sophistication. However, I'm sure that is one of the function that will most likely stop working first.

I watched the Chronicles of Riddick on Blu-ray and it was as good as I have ever seen it in my home. The D6700 functions much better than the Pioneer BD-330 in speed, menu, options of adjustment, on-line content, ect. I also prefer using the D6700 over my PS3 (fat 60gig). I always bit stream the audio to the AVR, and there is no flaws in this operation. One just needs to turn of the dynamic control foolishness.

I don't have a 3D tv yet, but I'm working on that. I have become a little particular about my HT purchases in a little under 3 years. The TV will have to be a great compromise between price and picture performance.

Luckily, I will have no need for all the extras Samsung often want to include in their top model flat panels because of the Blu-ray can do what they normally bundle into their higher-end TV's. Furthermore, whatever the D6700 can't do, my Pioneer Elite SC-35 will take care of the rest. Therefore, the day after Thanksgiving is the date I have scheduled for the new 3D Samsung TV.

ONE PROBLEM,

I didn't have any luck with getting the wireless internet working. I suspect the problem is with my weak router and will buy another one soon. Then I will have to post back to let you know what I found out.

To Be continued
LL

I have the 6700 and I must tell you that should be a huge dealbreaker for this unit.


So everytime I go to watch a 3d movie I have to go into my Onkyo and shut off the HDMI output of the receiver. Then go back in and turn it on if I want to use the receiver for HDMI switching of my non-3d HDMI inputs. Sort of defeats the purpose of having this player completely doesn't it?

All samsung has to do is send HD audio only over the non-handshaking 2nd output. How hard is that to do?

I am used to PS3's super responsive remote that is very well designed with its layout and which uses blutooth so you dont need line of sight.

The 6700 has one pathetic remote with poor layout where all buttons are same size and there is no way to tell in dark what the hell you are pressing and even if you figure out the right button it takes few presses aiming at the player.

If not for the dual HDMI and 2D->3D, I would never have bought this.
