I though this was going to be a slot in drive like the previous model? that slot in drive really looks slick.

From panasonic, no chroma processing or high clarity audio. Its not listed on their site either. Seems like panasonic cares more for the social media aspects than the purists.

I have noticed that year after year Panasonic seems to give less and less. The 210 was loaded with sound options, the 220 less and I think the 230 less than the 220. High Clarity Audio is automatic now because the analog outputs are going, going gone. I was thinking about getting the S330, but with the Samsung F7500 and the LG 730 also with 4K, I will have to wait for customer reviews. Chroma processing maybe automatic now also. Incidently Best Buy manager told me that the Sony 4K 55 inch TV will be on display in the store in 2 to 3 weeks. The LG S730 is on sale in store for $199.99.
The Panasonic machine to me however are a very good workhorse blu ray machine.

I checked this morning and saw the first shipping information claiming April 15th that they would have them. They must be at least dribbling out by now.
post #36 of 64
Yes this model has been out since the beginning of this week at a where i shop. Was gonna pick one up, bet they were sold out. The sales guy said they only got a couple in this weeks shipment but more to come.

Threads like this used to really "pop." Are even HT enthusiast sites losing interest in the latest BD player offerings from one of the biggest manufs of the BDA?

Can someone who has used the player please comment on browser functionality and Flickr support. Specifically, is the browser "open"--can you access all of the Internet (except for perhaps, as previously mentioned, streaming/video sites like YouTube wherein the ecosystem wants you to use the dedicated application instead?)? How do you type/navigate around--via the player's remote only? Smartphone? Can you connect a traditional keyboard via USB?

And finally, can you access your photos uploaded to your Flickr page to view them on your big screen via the player's browser (or a Flickr app?)? Thanks.

So, for those of you who do have this player, I also have a question. It is regarding NAS connection functionality.

If I am reading the documentation correctly, this player is supposed to have NAS capability, but the manual has zero instructions on how to connect to the NAS box. It just sends you off to a global customer support page that is a nightmare in which to find anything.

So, if anyone knows what this player is capable of regarding NAS connection, I'd like to know.

Thanks.

mrvideo, I'm afraid that was a spam-bot

First time I've been hit by one of those.

Most any time if the poster has just registered, only has 1 or 2 posts, has a strange, out of context post & an even stranger img file attached, it is a spam-bot.

He's already been banned. Delete your quote please, as it allows the spam to live on.

I just got off the phone with Panasonic customer support. I sent in an e-mail and they reply was to call in.

Unfortunately she was less than helpful has she had no clue as to what a NAS box was, even after I tried to explain it to her.

Supposedly someone is supposed to call me back. We'll see.

I guess no one here has tried sing this model to connect to an external file server.

Tech support was zero help.

I'm going to assume that you have one of these players.

Have you tried to do anything with connection to a file server, like a NAS box, in order to play stuff?

Has anyone confirmed this player as having the checkerboard format yet? Potentially interested in one to go with my mitsubishi wd65c9.

I have exactly the same question about the 230, 330, and the 500. Called Panasonic customer support this morning and was told that all of their 3D Blu ray players still support checkerboard. I then went to the well known South America river Q&A and read that the 230 does not (posted by the "Panasonic Team"). I just love contradictory answers. frown.gif

Just purchased the player to hook up to my newly D-Nice calibrated 65ZT60. What are the optimal settings for this player to just pass-through video direct from the blu-ray without messing with the original image. Seems right now the player is processing the video and adding a red tone to it.

Has anyone had any problems with th picture flickering and cutting out for a second or two ? Still get clear audio but not video. I had the 320. It got so bad I took it back and got th 330. Been working great for two months and now the 330 is doing that. Just hooked up and older player and it is working fine. Thought for a second that I could have faulty hdmi but doesn't seem to be the case. Anything?????

Try users sections so you can adjust the colors to your likings
post #57 of 64

I dont want to make adjustments, I want whatever is on the disc to be displayed on the tv with no change in anything by the blu ray or the tv.

Didn't you say the colors coming out the bluray was kind of saturated.

New to the forum.  I have the 330.  Sorry if this has been covered before I only have scratched the surface of this forum.

 

Question - My 330 has worked flawlessly and I have been pleased with the load speed and performance until this weekend.  I rented Captain Phillips a Sony Blu-Ray and a rather new release.  I experienced video blackouts, audio was fine.  When the picture comes back after several seconds I get a pop-up that read something to the effect Input 5, 1080P, 24P, and on a line by itself xvYcc.  Also at the bottom of my screen lower left a caption that reads Video xvYcc.

 

I know the xvYcc is x.v. color a Sony color distribution.  I contacted Panasonic tech support and they have only suggested ,so far, to reset the player back to factory defaults.  I did that with no change and of course in the process wasted all my network settings.  Any ideas out there?  By the way, yes I have the latest firmware.

I currently have the EXACT same thing happen to my 330 a month ago. Also had the same thing happen to my 320 three months ago which is why I bought the 330. It's not a hdmi, connection, or firmware issues. It is simply a malfunctioning unit. I have also tried everything. Luckily I hooked up another blu ray mid movie and it worked fine. When I switched back I bad player (330) it cut in and out. Video cuts out few seconds, never lose audio.

I am a big panasonic fan but this is bs. I opted to buy a second denon 3313 for the bedroom because of this. Best but said it had to be sent in for repair.
