Just purchased the 62 and loving it so far aside from one issue. When I'm streaming Netflix my receiver will randomly shut off and then immediately come back on. I have it paired to a Pioneer VSX-1020 which has never done this before. I'm guessing it has to be related to the HDMI control but both the player and receiver have that setting turned off. Anyone have any idea what might be causing this? Blu-ray movies don't have this effect.

Does anyone know if the BDP-62FD is able to play multichannel FLAC audio inside a .mkv container?

I seriously doubt it... but, you could try using Serviio and setting up a custom filter to transcode to multi-channel LPCM and I am optimistic that it would be able to play that.

...or... instead of .MKV, put into an M2TS container, audio-only, as transcoded DTS and it will play back native.

I would think about trying that myself, but the only multi-channel FLAC files I have are DVD-Audio rips and I have all of the original optical plastic, so I just spin the disc.

EDIT: but, if you want to do this with your Blu-ray and/or DVD concert collection (a guess), rip the disc as a lossless transfer to (again) an M2TS file; then, stream to your BDP-62FD with Serviio and you will have audio playback with no loss of channels or audio quality. Google something called 'DVDFab' to get started.

Anyone having lip-sync issues?

In general, no, but you need to be more specific. Are you running separate video/audio HDMI out?

I personally had an issue with 'Total Recall (2012)' getting out of sync, but I've read that this has been a universal problem with that disc.

Thinking about grabbing this player since its on sale at BB right now.

Can this player stream from my media server? Basically I have all my DVDs & BRs ripped on to my server. I currently use Dune players and yaDis/Zappiti throughout the house for this purpose but would like to have a dedicated high quality BR player in the theater room. Rips are in the form of mkvs, TS files, and full BD disc rips.

Thanks.

..yes you can ..i sometimes stream from imediashare.. and it works pretty good ..you'll definitely benefit...from this players PQ..
post #282 of 825
Cool. I assume that it will have to be done via a simply folder structure vs. using some sort of "media browser" like Zappiti etc.

Correct?

Thanks

I bought one of these for $199 at Best Buy this weekend. It still shows $399 on the website, but if you go to the store it's $199, it's on sale. Not sure how long the sale lasts.

You can see if your store has one at this link: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Pioneer...8720760631&skuId=6000108&st=6000108&cp=1&lp=1

The only thing I checked so far is my SACD of Stevie Wonder's Songs In The Key of Life - and I can report that track 1 plays all the way through without jumping to track 2.

I'll play with it more this weekend.

You can either plug in a USB drive and browse as you describe, or you stream media to the -62FD via a DLNA server. I personally use Serviio.org to stream Blu-ray and DVD images, with no loss of quality (including HD audio and 24fps for BDs). And, as pioneertop mentioned, streaming media benefits from the video scaler and features like Sound Retriever (works well with DVD sound tracks).

Ok thanks.

Would Plex work?

No. Plex requires a proprietary client app as the receiver. The Pioneer BDP-62FD supports DLNA 1.5 for streaming, along with Netflix, Pandora and Picasa. It has the best Netflix streaming client I've ever seen, PQ-wise.

Personally speaking, I have found Plex to be buggy and frustrating, but lots of people swear by it, so you might like it. For Plex on your TV, try a Roku box - it supports a Plex client, among just about everything else there is except Apple streaming content.

Has anyone compared the Pioneer Elite bdp-62fd to the Panasonic BD500?
post #288 of 825
Yeah we have a Roku on one of our TVs which was reason for asking about Plex.

I'll download Servio and take a look at it. I picked up the 62 about 45 mins ago so I at least managed to get one at the $199 price before they were gone. If this works well and gives me good streaming results I would certainly entertain replacing the Dunes with these throughout the house.

I had both, I like my 62 better. The Wifi on the 500 is bad at times to the point that I get frustrated and use wired setup. If I had known, I would just buy the 62.
post #290 of 825
Is there a thread on here about making this region free? I tried the procedure for the BDP-51FD (http://www.pioneerfaq.info/filer/region_freel-51FD.pdf) but it doesn't seem to do anything (the Pioneer GGF1381 commands have no visible effect.)

Thanks in advance.

Hi David.
Thanks for the info..,!
Let me throw this little twist into the mix.
I won't be using the Wifi for either player.
I live in the country so streaming is not an option.
Simply Blu Ray play back and SD-DVD up-conversion.
Knowing all of this... do you still have the same opinion?

Thanks in advance...!
post #292 of 825
He already posted his thoughts on that slightly earlier in this thread. You can't go wrong with either so it could come down to just matching the brand of your TV for unity sake.

I currently have the pioneer 51fd and I'm thinking about getting the
62. Has anyone made this move and would care to comment on how
they like the 62?

Thanks

well ..iam a big fan of pioneer's players for years..i had the 23FD/ the 51FD/ and 05FD ..SOLD them ..then got the 52/62 movie's on the 52 and music on the 62.now in regards to the 62FD
its a very good unit ..a lot faster on load and start up then.. the previous models ..if load time is important to you you will love this player...its fast.. easy to setup... built Quality is good to ..now i use the 62FD for music ..for hi-res..file playback .and sacd/ dvd audio ..now the 51FD is a very good i loved it, even doh it took some time to start and load..but that said ..when it came to putting out a glorious picture the 51FD IMO was tops.. to me the 23FD and 51FD has identical PQ..but the 23FD is bit faster..i could go on..but to be short ..you will like the speed of this player over the 51FD ..its also a lot smaller so if you need more space in you rack its a + ..but i still like and miss the built like a tank ..51FD ..if music is a big part of your use ..you'll be happy to..

pioneertop,

Thanks for the quick response, picture, sound and Blu-ray Disc compatibility are the most important.
It sounds like you think the 51 has a better picture than the 62, can you elaborate.
post #296 of 825
OK, I tried the dual HDMI outs.

Main to TV
Sub to Pioneer SC-1522

Playing DVD-A, I can only get 48kHz (not 96kHz) to the amp from the player, when the player is set to either bitstream or PCM. Is this a limitation of this setup?

When I just run the main to the AVR I get 96kHz

EDIT: I just figured the problem out.

Auto or 1080P setting in the player results in audio being sent at 48kHz on the sub out. If I change the setting to 1080i I get 96kHz.........bandwidth, bug????

I'm a little confused on the SQ, this is just a digital output with no effect at all on the SQ isn't it, everything analog happens in the AVR?

Images? Servillo can DLNA stream ISO's?

No. Sorry, I misspoke. I was referring to M2TS (BD) and VOB (DVD) which are lossless transfers from the optical plastic.

Np. thanks for confirming. I know it can play mt2s. My library are ISO's so I'm trying to find a DLNA server that can mount the ISO with virtual clone and then play the m2ts file inside the STREAM dir. I am currently doing a trial with JRiver MC.
