I had this player and loved it, until it stopped reading some bluray discs. Never had a problem until last week. And it was with some older titles I had, not new releases. Dark Night was one and a John Mayer bluray was another. I can see the player having an issue with John Mayer (the wife likes him) Unplugged the unit and it would read the disc the first time it was put in, I would eject and try later and then it wouldn't read the disc again. A little upsetting that Samsung hasn't released firmware since August.
I replaced it with a Panasonic 310, no issues so far.

All Blu-ray players will run into this problem sooner or later due to the ever change nature of the Blu-ray copying protection measures if your are a person who play many Blu-rays.

These problems will be resolved slowly but surely. Other than that, these units are great.

Yeah I know. I really like the player and I am going to keep it as a back up. We were having a movie night over the weekend and I wanted to make sure things went smoothly, so I picked up the Panny. It's just strange that all of a sudden it wouldn't read discs. Never had any problems before.

Well, i haven't ran in to any disc I couldn't yet. If it does happen, I would be a little upset but I have the PS3 hooked.

Just a simple question and I was thinking of getting one but now it helps me to look for other ones

If you don't mind me asking how do you have your files formatted? I have a WHS box which has a TON of MP4 videos we've converted in the past and it refuses to play them. My WHS box has a windows media streamer and a Twonky streamer. I tried using both streamers and got the unsupported media error on both. The videos in question were converted by the HP video converter on the WHS box, I think that converter created bogus formats.

I have recently been using DVDfab ripping to AVI and MP4 directly and it will play those files.

I don't know a lot about the types of files but they have the extension of mpg. For my video camera I use a sony which saves as AVI and then I use a program to convert it to mpg so I can make a DVD from it and then I save a copy to my NAS drive. I originally used only a buffalo media player that ports the video to a channel in our house CATV and then with remotes set for each room you could play any video from any room in the house. Since the Directv does the same thing and I have two receivers also ported to the CATV system I mostly use them. I have had problems playing everything with the Directv so I sometimes have to revert to the Buffalo media player. The media player will play all my movies that are saved to the NAS and all the music in WMA lossless. The Buffalo media player is one of the best gadgets I've ever purchased and surprising that they no longer make them. I am just starting to experiment with saving Bluray to the NAS but I don't think I'll easily be able to play the video throughout the house like I can with DVD. It's ashame because I don't pirate movies and so now I don't buy them anymore because I can't really use them easily. I like hidden functionality and pulling up a directory of movies in any room of the house was a great idea but now seems hard to implement. I am able to watch Bluray in another room but this requires putting a Bluray into the player and switching the video output HDMI to the room. This involves walking instead of pressing a button on the remote.

Does the 6700 have better video processing electronics than the 6500, or is it the same machine with a digital tuner thrown in?

The tuner is of no interest to me; I'm looking for very good-excellent dvd upconversion and BR image quality.

Currently I have a 6500 on loan, but somehow it seems to be lacking a bit of sharpness. The on screen menu's are also less sharp than those of the Panasonic 310.Wondering if the 6700 will be better.
post #253 of 366
BTW I'm talking about the BD-D6900, which looks exactly like the 6700 in the US. The 6700 has 2 HDMI outputs and no digital tuner however.

The 6700's Dynamic Range Compression default setting is "ON". Turn it "OFF" to normalize the audio.

I am planning to import this player to India. I will be playing only region free blu rays so I guess the fact that the player will play only region A discs will not be a problem.

Apart from the fact that I have to use a voltage adapter to convert 220 V to 110 V does anyone foresee any other issue?

So my firmware says 9/30_1006 but when I tell it to look on the internet it doesnt find an update. There was an update on 12/1 according to the site but when I put that on USB it still doesnt update. So I guess I am up to date, but lately I have been having to use my ps3 to watch movies (multiple reasons, it gets stuck on a black screen, stutters, or says it cant play this disk). Is this because they still havent updated the firmware!? What version firmware do you guys have in the display in system, i just want to make sure I am totally up to date.

6700 is the worst purchase I made...it cant connect to wired or wireless internet reliably ! If not for the dual-hdmi, I would never have bought it....PS3 is 100 time better in quality and reliability

I have a small bit of wireless connectivity problems due to a big house and a lame wireless router. However, my PS3 keeps the signal all the time. My iPhone 4 losses the signal in the same room just like the D6700.

Nevertheless, I believe the D6700 is the better Blu-ray player between the it's self and the PS3.

Having a Samsung D7000 Plasma helps because it stay connected to the Internet better and has the ability to control the D6700 thur the AnyNet feature while using the iPhone wireless remote app.

Also, due to the fact that the D6700 is often crowded by other electronics, this could affect it receiving the signal. Mine is on the bottom rack rear the floor while the Samsung D7000 59in Plasma always keeps connection to the router.

I hope this work out better for you. I love this player which I picked up as open box/display at Best Buy. I was looking to by another one they had up there.

mine sits right next to the wireless router and often loses connection....even wired doesnt work well to the point that it took me 10 attempts to do a FW update.....stupid PS3 doesnt do lossless audio or treats VUDU 3D as gaming object so converts it to 720, if not for these two issues I see no perceptable improvement from 67)0 over PS3.

i've been having issues with the 2d-3d conversion. whenever i try it, it seems like there is a delay between the left and right eye which is very apparent during shot changes. it makes using the 2d-3d conversion almost unwatchable. i am using optoma rf glasses and this doesn't happen with native 3d content. best way to describe it is that whenever there is a shot change, it's like it sweeps/wipes across the screen instead of a hard cut.

There is a adjustment for depth that might help you. Also, just for the love of experimenting, have you tried different HDMI cables and or 3D glasses.

There is more than one item that could be out of sync. Never know some time.

well this is the second 6700 i've owned and it's happened on both of them, and the glasses never produce that bad cut/sweep effect unless i am using the 2d-3d conversion option. and it's not 100% repsoducable. seems random.

Well the last two movies I rented 50/50 and Drive both wouldnt play. I put them in and it got to a black screen and nothing happened. Both played fine in my PS3, is this because of the firmware not being up to date? Does anyone else get these symptoms, I expected an error if it was licensing related.

Dang man, that's a bummer. I know how irritating that is to settle down to watch a movie and then have trouble like this, sorry to hear that.

I just checked and have the same 9/30_1006 firmware as you do on my BD-D6700. I don't have either of those movies you mention though to test and see if they play, sorry. I tried to get a firmware update and mine too says none available. So not sure what's going on with this version 1006.2 we can't get.
post #267 of 366
The new Planet of the Apes movie won't play either. Same thing, black screen. You need to call Samsung support and let them know those two movies did not play for you. That's what I did. I'm assuming now that they're waiting for X number of complaints before they release new firmware with the updated BR copy protection schemes added.
post #268 of 366
and Cars 2 in 3d still won't play properly either. Needless to say this is the last samsung product i purchase...

Thanks for checking for me =) I wonder if I should put in a support ticket for repair even though it sounds like it wont actually fix the issue....

Well, due to the rate of which I keep hearing negative comments on the Samsung D6700 Blu-ray player, I must come back on here to bring some understanding and sing it's praises.

First, the D6700 played the movie Drive perfectly this evening. I have proof.

I think some of the rented disks people may be using could be the problem.

Proof in my theater room pics.

Now, I don't know why other people players are having problems but I know for a fact that other players from different companies have had similar problems.

Let us not forget that these players are bench tested to send all the picture information as good as the reference Oppo players when show Blu-rays which says a lot.

No electronic company makes anything perfect on their assembly lines with out a few under performers.

I will buy Cars 2 in 3D also to prove wether or not something is wrong with the D6700 or it's current software version.

2011/09/30_001006

The only problem I have had is losing the wireless router signal thur this 101 year three layer, two story with basement, brick house in which my iPhone 4 (which I'm typing to you all with) has lost the signal also in the same part of the house. My D6700 is almost sitting on the floor with a Pioneer Elite SC-35 and Panamax M5300-PM Power Conditioner surrounding it with the router downstairs. It no shock there is a connectivity problem every once and a while.

Hope this post is helpful to someone.
