I also noticed the same issue with the First 3D BD of the Hobbit I got on release day with my S5100. The vibrational noise went away after a while so I wasn't too worried about it.

The top has a plastic veneer on top that is textured. "Ciinking" a key on it, it sounds like plastic on top.

It goes away and comes back - in and out- through the movie.

Pogoplug does have a setting (Optimize your videos for playback) that can be enabled but I don't use it so I doubt it is a conversion issue. Those same files that a logitech revue(can't handle mpg2) can play natively, stream fine from the pogoplug to that device.

Does anyone know where I can get one for about $100, which is what Amazon's price was?

I've been going through the same delayed shipment/approval thing for a couple weeks now as well with Amazon. I got fed up today and got on a chat with them, they said that it will be shipping "for sure" on 4/29....we shall see. rolleyes.gif

I'll believe it when I see it. smile.gif I almost cancelled my order and ordered a new model but I really want the 590...unless that is someone can convince me that the new models are better.

Personally, I would order the new model (5100) if I were you, namely to help ensure a longer life in terms of software support from Sony. Also, Amazon may never be able to get you the 590, since the model has been discontinued.

The new players have been reported to load discs more quickly and the YouTube channel supports HD as well as a few other enhancements (see 5100 thread for details).

The disadvantage of the new players is that there are no analog outputs or optical digital outputs, but that shouldn't be a concern unless you have a TV without HDMI or a receiver without either HDMI or coaxial spdif.
post #3428 of 3993
^^^^

I agree with you, but I was just trying to save myself the $40. wink.gif Also, I do most of my streaming with my PS3 so the new features weren't all that important to me. Might just have to go for it though if Amazon doesn't come through.

My situation is a bit different - I actually received an S590, but the HDMI port didn't work. The one I've been waiting on is supposed to be a replacement.

I may go to Costco and see if they have the BX510. If so, I will get it and cancel my order with Amazon.

Just put the disc on the spin balancer, and one of these should do the trick. (Or maybe a smaller one.)

Is there any way to get 24P output when playing M2TS via DLNA? The BDROM setting for this seems to have no effect.
post #3433 of 3993
Hi everybody. My first post. I started a thread on this subject but I realized that this thread may be a better place. I managed to get three Sony BDP-S590 units at below $90 (two for my personal use and one for my daughter). One question, besides actually removing disc from platter, is there a way to stop platter from rotating? The stop button actually works as another pause button, namely, when pressed sound stops but platter keeps rotating and when play button is pressed unit goes back to the last place on disc. Besides concerns about mechanical wear, the whirling platter noise is sort of annoying when listening to music and switching from CD or SACD to another type of music media.

It is an odd and somewhat obnoxious design but it never seems to stop spinning the disc in the drive when the unit is powered on. The only solution seems to be to remove the disc. If you set the Gracenote lookup to be manual it helps a little bit since it doesn't periodically spin the disc up to a higher speed for the lookup.

Picked up a BX510 at Costco for $119 and cancelled the Amazon order for the 590.

What's the difference between the BX510 and the S5100? They look exactly the same......

From what I have read, nothing other than the BX510 comes with an HDMI cable.

HI Everyone,

This is my first post. Sorry If I have an old question, I tried to look around but I could not really find an answer.

I just recently got the S390, and I have been trying to use the Homestream. After I installed it, it won't find the blu-ray player eventhough it says the server is running and my blu-ray is connected to the wifi. Can anyone help me on this?

Thank you so much

BX510 is only sold at discount club like Costco and comes with a HDMI cable.

I've seen the BX-58 and BX-59 at a Sony Outlet store, but they're refurb and were about the same price or $10 more that the new ones from Costco or BJs.
It's neither here nor there, just an option for those who don't have a Costco or BJs' membership.

I bought this be player a few days ago. I am aware it upscaled regular DVD and its great. However, I would like to use my Pioneer 1131K receivers upscaler to upscale DVD and BD.

What do I have to do in the settings to disable my BD players upscaler and let me receiver do the video upascaling?
post #3444 of 3993
I don't think I was clear, sorry.

I have the Sony BDP S-590 bluray player. Again, I would like my receiver (Pioneer 1121K) to do the upscaling for DVD and BD. I would like to disable the BDP S-590's and let me receiver do all the upscaling.

What setting do I have to change for the BDP S-590 in order for it to let my receiver do the upscaling for DVD and BD that I watch?

Thanks!

Original resolution in output video format (HDMI resolution) found in screen settings.
post #3446 of 3993
Thanks Apw, so its not 480i? The reason why I ask again is because 3 other members said to put it to 480i then the bluray player will be disabled and the receiver will do the upscing.

Just kind of confused. I guess for this particular blueray player I should put it to "original" output.

I would test your DVD's at 480i and original. When I did this I found the 590 and 790 both did a better job of upscaling DVD's than my Pioneer VSX-1021.
post #3448 of 3993
if you put in 480i, your blu ray discs will be played back in 480i as well, isn't it?

Original means if you play a dvd, it will output 480i. If you play a blu ray disc, it will outpur 1080p.
post #3449 of 3993
I don't think Pioneer 1021K uses Marvell Qdeo chip for video processing does it???

Original will output original output resolution on disk other than 480i that will be output as 480p

The scaling in these players is excellent. I wouldn't worry about it.
