Keep in mind ... people who are happy with their products don't come to the forums to talk about it (mostly). ALL players will have issues, and that's almost always what you'll hear about them.

So has anyone picked up the DVP-NC85H 5-disc changer? I'm assuming it should be the same in term of function as the ns75. I need a good upconverting player for my sony 30hs420 hdtv. Getting a five changer would be a plus. I just saw them both on sale at BB here.

(on 2.35 movies black bars on top and bottom where larger than my panny prog. scan player) Does this player do the same thing? Its like using the upscale feature caused you to get a "smaller picture" I really liked the 70H other than the fact that it gave me a smaller picture on 2.35 movies and I would like to try a 75H but not if the image is "reduced" Are you guys seeing a difference in image size at 720p and 1080i vs. 480?

There is no compression/shifting/squeezing with this player on any resolution setting. I've not tried the MP3 functions of the player but will do so in the next day or so. I'll check the Zoom also to see if it still diplays the (2X etc.). I didn't use either of those features on the 70H so I didn't think to check them. The major flaw with the 70H (shifting) has been fixed.

Itsdon,

Can you answer the question about 480i output via HDMI? Many of us who are or will use scalers want to know.

Does the 75H still have the menu setting for 4x3 on a 16x9 TV like the 70H lets you choose pillarbox or stretched? (manual not online yet or I could look there...)

I just picked up a 70H at BB and then found out the 75H was coming out...

Also guys, What is the difference between this one and the ns95h??

Any thoughts on choosing between them?

Depends on your display type. If your display is prone to issue with macro blocking (such as a plasma), the Sony may be a better fit (now that shift is fixed).

Speaking of the NS95H, the Secrets review noted it did not pass BTB, had severe pixel cropping, and failed the Video Levels. Anybody know if these issues are present in this model?

What is the Best Buy SKU number for the DVP-NS75H? I called Germantown, MD and they said it wasn't in the computer.

Also, when will Circuit City get it?

ns75h displays the same formats as the ns70h.. 480p, 720p, and 1080i via HDMI.

They have it on display at the Best Buy in Mira Mesa, CA. Didn't see any in stock though, but I didn't really look.

Also - if anyone in Mass is seeing these at Best Buy, please let me know!


Hey
I checked out the Best Buy in Saugus and Braintree-nothing yet and no one at either store could give me any info

Does anyone know if the obnoxiously bright blue light can be turned off when the player detects a HDMI connection to the TV? The dimming function dims the entire display and renders it bascially useless. I think the display on the NS70 is a little better since the new NS75 has somewhat of a mirror finish to the diplay window and it reduces the readability of the display.

Amazon now says shipping date of May 30th if you order it - can they be serious?

Nothing in Framingham, either ...

The Best Buy in Mission Valley/San Diego had 4-5 left tonight. I picked one up after work. I have an HDMI cable on the way from Monoprice so I won't be checking it out for another couple of days.

I picked up the DVP-NC85H from BB, everything seems fine. The two complaints so far is the blue HDMI light is blinding and there was no S-Control connectors on the back. The remote control sensor is way over on the far far right and my cabinet blocks it. Oh and the fact I have to turn the volume of my tv all the way down using HDMI...annoying.
post #80 of 2201
Decided to go with the NC85H also. At BB the NS75 is $129 and the NC85H is $153; only a $24 difference. It only comes with composite cables so I had to buy an HDMI cable separately. Tried out Sin City and it looks great; then again it is my first upconverting player. There's no way I can go back to composite after seeing the difference.

Where does it say that?

And does amazon charge you when you place an order or do they charge you when they ship it?

Edit: Nevermind, I see it. I'm not sure about that. I know amazon and other web sites like walmart put up weird shipping dates, but usually ship when the item is in stock.
post #82 of 2201
I pre-ordered the DVPNC85H/S HDMI changer from Amazon.com last week, and it came up with a June est. arrival date! When I tried to cancel, my order already entered the shipping process, and could not be cancelled. When I spoke to their customer service, they didn't know why the site showed a delivery date 2 months away, but that the player was actually being packaged for shipment. Today, I have a Fedex tracking # showing it's on its way. So apparently Amazon.com is having issues displaying accurate delivery dates.

For those curious - the 2X zoom indicator still stays on the screen the whole time. The unit will not send a 480i HDMI signal. Haven't tested the MP3 function.

Watched Saw 2 tonight, the player has a noticeable layer change. Very slight though, like the 70H. My "interim" player, the RCA DRC8060n has no noticeable layer change which is why this one stood out when it happened tonight. The bright blue light can be dealt with some silver duct tape for those who don't like it. My AV pieces are behind smoked glass doors so I don't notice it. Sure is a nice player!

What's a layer change?

Price at amazon.com went up to what BB sells for.. I could have saved a few bucks, but I waited too long.

Does it bother anyone that there is only a 90 day labor warranty? I usually stay away from components that don't have a 1 year parts and labor warranty. But this player looks like it might be the one I want to get. Also, my 5 year old Toshiba just bit the dust.

On dual-layer discs, there will be a SLIGHT pause in the movie. If you've ever watched a high-quality (read: special edition) DVD, about halfway thru it usually happens. Everyone in the room watching the movie will exchange a nervous glance, as if to say "Phew, I thought we lost the movie there for a second!" and then go back to watching.

Amazon response:

I'm sorry for any misunderstanding regarding this item. Although we do have your copy of "Sony DVPNS75H Single Disc DVD Player" on hand, we can't ship it to you until its official release date is announced. As soon as a release date has been determined for this item, we will add that information to our web site.

Many manufacturers, publishers, and record labels restrict retailers from selling or shipping their products until the official release date.

In some cases, these items may enter the shipping process just prior to the release date. When possible, we do this to ensure that you get the item as soon as possible after the release date.

Have they also fixed the issue with the zoom? I think with the 70H if you zoom in, the words 'zoom 2x' or something like that stay on the screen making it useless for watching it.

Also, when playing mp3's. Is there a random feature to randomly play all mp3's on a cd or does it just play them in order.

Now if it would only play PAL movies and DivX it would be perfect.

Thanks.


Just curious, what is the zoom feature for?

In most cases, for just what it sounds like - to zoom in on something in whatever video you're watching ("Hey, zoom in on that car ... I want to see the wheels better" or something like that).

While most videophiles don't recommend it, some people use the zoom to eliminate the black bars from widescreen movies (thus sacrificing video content from the right and left sides of the screen). It also degrades the quality of the video content.
