Samsung BDP1400 Disussion Thread - Page 6

post #151 of 12884
I didn't think mine was terribly loud. It's in a closet, but I had the doors open and didn't notice it.

Will I get 720P through the component connection? I have an older Samsung DLP with no HDMI connections, and my DVI connection is tied up with the XBox 360 w/ HD-DVD player.

Thanks,

Sweet news!!!!!!

Anyone with an Onkyo 605 that is seeing the DD THD lights, know what firmware is in their 605? Of interest would be the DSP firmware.
post #155 of 12884
My room is extremely quiet and my 1400 is a quiet as it can be.

I have an 805 (I am not sure what the difference is) but the TRUE HD and DTS-MS lights DO come on.

If the 805 and 905 do, why shouldn't the 705? It's all the same inside these Onkyo Receivers. If it supports TrueHD and DTS HD-MA it will display

(Hell, and I just paid off my Visa only to do damage to it yet again. *lol*)

I just bought my 1400 and am pretty excited about this upgrade and its potential but I need to make sure that I understand this correctly. As I understood it before today the only way to get the new audio formats was over an HDMI connection or thru the 5.1 analog inputs and that if one used the bitstream, ie., coax or toslink, the audio was output as DD or DTS. Are you all saying that with this upgrade the new audio formats will be output over either the coax or toslink outputs or do I have a misunderstanding?
post #161 of 12884
so after reading about the firmware update this morning I placed an internet order at Circuit City and picked this player up about 30 mins ago. I have an Anthem AVM 50 in my Theater but an Onkyo 805 in my living room which is where I put this Samsung ( I have a Panasonic in my Theater and tried a Pioneer there as well )

I just put in X Men 3 and all I have to say is WOW. DTS-HD MSTR comes right up and sounds really good. I'll give an update later after testing a couple more movies, I have KOH and Fantastic 4 as well to test

The 1400 video quality wise doing 1080p/23.98 is every bit as good as the Pioneer 94HD! Of course I like the 94HD features a lot more. Mainly being able to change resolution on the fly plus the picture adjustments. Still for the money, the 1400 is the best HD player available...

no, you will still need to use HDMI

If this has 256MB of memory and an ethernet port then is there not a chance it will be upgradeable to profile 2.0 compliant with a firmware upgrade and dongle?

I agree, you cant beat this player for the money

I originally purchased my Pioneer to replace the Panasonic in my theater so I could move it to my living room. I recently put the Panny back in my theater and put the Pioneer in my living room but after getting the Samsung it looks like I'll be selling my Pioneer

Unless Samsung makes an official announcement or give us a firmware upgrade surprise (like the DTS-HD-MA), DON'T COUNT ON IT. You should buy based on feature that are officially advertise by the mfg. Don't buy based on HOPE, COULD and/or RUMORS.

I bought the 1400 because it supports TrueHD & DTS-HD-HR and was not counting on MA, profile 1.0 or 2.0. The bitstream support was a nice surprise, but again I was not expecting it.

Joe, do you know if the 1080p/24 output is 4:4:4 or 4:2:2 ?

thanks dude

post #168 of 12884
So, does this player now support DTS-HDMA? I see where people are saying it only support DTS-HDHRA and DTS-HDMS but not DTS-HDMA.
If this thing supports TrueHD and DTS-HDMA i will be picking one up tonight.
post #169 of 12884
To those who already own the 1400, is the PQ of the 1400 equivalent to or better than the PS3? Thanks.

Via the latest firmware update, D-THD/DD+/DTS-HD HR/DTS-HD MA are all supported on this player via HDMI bitstream output. Click on the link a page or so back and peruse the Samsung Download Center for confirmation.

It also supports internal decoding of Dolby TrueHD, DD+ & DTS-HD-HR.

Has anyone who owns hdmi 1.2 spec tv's got their receivers DTS HD/True HD lights to turn on using this player with bistream output?

I am curious if people who own hdmi 1.2 spec tv's are having any problems.

I have been long curious if a 1.2 spec tv drags down the whole hdmi pipeline to 1.2 and negates the output of raw bitstream HD audio formats (dts hd /True HD) from showing up on their receiver. (since those formats are 1.3 native)

If anyone here has a 1.2 hdmi tv and still not getting lights to come on and also owns a newer 1.3 receiver that handles decoding of DTS HD and True HD... (and of course...as well as owning this new 1400 player with latest firmware).. can you do a little experiment?

How to:
Set up the player to bitstream output.....play a DTS HD or True HD movie (experiment with one or both formats would be great)....make sure you select the DTS HD or True HD language track on the movie menu .....play the real movie (not all the splash screens... jump a few chapters deep to get into the middle of the actual movie.... and pause in mid movie... now turn off the receiver and turn off your tv...then go around the back and disconnect the tv's hdmi cable from the receiver.... now turn back on the receiver.. and unpause the movie on the player..... and see if the DTS HDor True HD lights turn on in the front of the receiver.

This is just an experimental hunch if you are not seeing the lights come on and own this player.

PS: If you own a 1.2 tv and still got those new formats to show up on the receiver please let me know of course forgoing any experimenting.

Thx in advance!
post #173 of 12884
That's PRECISELY what I was going to ask.

If it turns out HDMI v1.3 is pointless when being used with a TV that's earlier than 1.3, then that makes a big difference in my receiver buying decision. But this player still sounds like a good one. Good upscaling?

I had this problem, not with this player but just with regular satellite and my HD-DVD player with my 805 and Sony non-HDMI 1.3 TV, and I just had to disable HDMI audio passthrough on the receiver.....I can't think it would be any different with this player, and I would doubt that the receiver would get the DTS-MA or DD-THD lights come up on their receiver if the audio passthrough is not disabled. It doesn't matter (at least in my case) if you are using a raw bitstream carrying DD THD/DTS-MA or uncompressed PCM through HD-DVD or DD via the satellite, both will probably be down-rezzed by the source when it recognizes the non-compliant TV in the pipeline.

I am using an RS1 projector, which is 1.2 I believe (at the very least it is not 1.3). It worked fine.

Are you using one of the newer Onkyo receivers? (I myself am) .. I may go pick this 1400 player up if I can confirm this will work... shame I have to buy yet another blu ray player (own a ps3).
post #177 of 12884
Yes, the 805. So BD1400 -> Onkyo 805 -> RS1

Thx for info madpoet.. I think I am very close to being sold. I just need to confirm if PS3 will always be unable to output these formats to my receiver (no matter what firmware they come out with)... and I will pick one of these up.
post #179 of 12884
Is there an "auto" option in the 1400 audio menu. Or does one have to switch back to bitstream after watching a movie with an uncompressed PCM track?
post #180 of 12884
Too bad the 5 free movie offer doesn't apply to the 1400.
