I'll probably want to use it like the 'Source Direct' mode on my old Pioneer bluray player but right now have no idea what mode it's in...
(I'm assuming BD Wise turned OFF means it's in Source Direct mode).
BD Wise can only be used with Samsung TVs that support it. After reading the manual when BD Wise is selected the original resolution of the source is sent to the TV so I stand corrected regarding resolution but the TV settings part is correct. This player does not have a source direct setting so you will have to set the resolution to the resolution of the disc. Then set it to Auto and compare.
You can do Source Direct with your X800 with resolutions SD and above, from manual.
[Output Video Resolution]
Normally select [Auto]. Select [Original Resolution] to output the resolution recorded on the disc. When the resolution is lower than the SD resolution, it is scaled up to the SD resolution.
