Netflix is not showing closed caption/subtitle support in its list of features for the SMP-N200 (and a bunch of other Sony products). It is supported in the player on the 2012 BD players but Netflix doesn't have a feature page for them.

As an example of a device which does have caption support, you can see it listed as a feature of the TiVo Premiere's player here.

I really like the You Tube implementation on this unit. I wish all of them worked the same.

I have my SMP-N200 installed and working primarily by streaming photos, music, and video from my PC using DLNA. The PC is running Homestream as the DLNA Server and it sees the SMP-N200 client. Almost everything seems to work well. Music and video is no problem. Some of myu older photos are displayed properly. However, all my newer photos, taken with a Sony NEX-7 camera in JPEG format, will not display. The wierd part is that I can see thumbnails of the images, but when I select an image I get a blank screen for the full size image after about 3-4 seconds of the circle hourglass. I have searched the internet (Google, Bing, etc.) and haven't seen anyone have this issue. I've tried my SMP-N200 as well as my friends, and both exhibit the exact same symptom. I've played around with the screen settings in the settings menu of the SMP-N200, but nothing makes any difference. Any ideas?
Regards

I recently went through my house and tested all my electronic equipment for power consumption using a Kill-a-watt meter. For anyone interested the SMP uses about 6 watts while on. I found it interesting that the SMP uses 4 watts in standby. Turning the "Quickstart" feature off allowed the device to fully turn off which will save about $3.50 annually biggrin.gif.

By comparison, my Roku 2 XS only uses 1 watt.

After installing an old Samsung 160 (3.5") into SATA to USB shell, I thought I could have all my old movies ready to go for this neat little Sony media player.

As it turned out, external HDD enclosures are not set up quite like USB flash drives. For instance, even though their USB device class is still Mass Storage, their interface mode permits bulk data transfer only.

Perhaps it is for this and other similar reasons, Sony SMP-N200 will not do business with devices like my external disk drive.

I'm not too upset, because this drive is as noisy as a ceiling fan.

HELP!? It plays all my stuff fine EXCEPT for my 1080p MKV files. Instead of allowing the black bars at the top and bottom of the screen, it forces the picture to stretch TALL. Argh! Can't fix in the settings or with aspect ratio of the TV. Anyone have a clue?

I just learned to live with it, I can't find a solution either.

Can anyone can confirm whether the SMP-N200 will stream Netflix Super HD?

According to Netflix the SMP-N200 is 720p-only, no subtitles, alternative audio or digital 5.1 sound support. Given that, there's no Super HD, which consists of two higher bit rate 1080p video encodes. Several times in this thread people have wished for 1080p support in its Netflix player and I don't believe it ever got it.

Is it even adaptive bit rate? If you play "Example Short 23.976" do you see burned-in bit-rate/resolution information (like the big yellow text in this pic)?

Ok thanks for the clarification. I was thinking it was 1080p but I forgot the Netflix isn't on the N200. I tried the example clip and it doesn't show the burned-in bitrate like my Roku does.

I'm receiving an update notification, but when I go to Sony's support site, it shows that I have the most recent firmware???
post #137 of 137
Update: I did an online chat with someone at Sony who wasn't able to find what updates are included. She said to check their website again in a day or two. This is a firmware update going from M10.R.0624 to M10.R.0629

Edit 4/16/14
The SMP-N200/NX20 Network Media player firmware version M10.R.0629 is available and provides improved BRAVIA® Internet Video connectivity.
