So what are your thoughts so far regarding the Samsung versus the Sony?

I found the J7500 performed better than the S6500. Both have dual core processors, but the J7500 boot-up quicker and seemed smoother. The S6500 has two boot modes, a fast and slow mode. The slow mode powers the entire unit off when you shut it off, while the fast mode puts the device into a sleep mode. I didn't notice those modes on the J7500.

Sony released their first firmware update for the S6500 about a month ago. I noticed the J7500 only had one as well, but I'm not sure when that came out.

The menu systems on both are good, and it comes down to preference.

The J7500 has more apps than the S6500 if you live in the US. I think for Canadian users, the apps on the S6500 might be better or more useful. Both have Netflix, Hulu, Youtube, Pandora. I found the apps on the S6500 ran a little more sluggish. Netflix on the S6500 would lock-up the unit upon exiting the app after several hours of use, and the Hulu menu system would be very laggy or non-responsive after watching something for a while. I'm not sure if the firmware update fixes the Netflix lock-up issue, but I know it didn't fix the Hulu issues. Both apps ran better on the J7500.

I do recall reading that some users noticed audio/video issues with the S6500 apps. Netflix won't play 4K content or certain audio formats, I just can't remember which. The J7500 Netflix app apparently supports 4K content.

The built-in WiFi on the S6500 only works on the 2.4GHz band. The J7500's built-in WiFi works on dual band. Either way, both still work well when streaming to the apps.

The build quality is completely different on both. The S6500 comes in a plain metal casing with no LED screen. The J7500 comes in a plastic casing with LED screen. The plastic casing seems more solid, but neither has the feel of a premium device.

I can't speak about the picture quality, as that's subjective, but both looked great to me.

IMO, if you don't need/want the PlayStation Now support, the J7500 is probably the better choice since it comes with more features, but only if they're price similarly. The J7500 is usually about $50+ more than the S6500. Since I got them for around the same price, I'm getting rid of the S6500. This is the first Samsung blu-ray player I've owned after owning four Sony blu-ray players.

With prices dropping due to new models and true UHD players coming out giving some players a test ride. The J7500 is on sale locally. Over all a nice player but had problems with the apps buffering, stalling, etc., especially MLB.COM.

Bluray playback was excellent. And it is fast loading. Really fast.

Going back however. Pandora and MLB.TV must work well as we use both quite a bit. Have no problems on my "old" Panasonic BDT-310.

If the J7500 was solid would have kept it. It looks nice and the full size players are getting extinct. Sony's BDP6700 went back as well. Its a toy. Not sure what Sony is thinking.

I just received the unit from Amazon.........Picture is fantastic.
I'm experiencing audio/video stuttering when streaming Amazon Prime through the player. It's intermittent. Sometimes it won't do it for an hour, then it'll do it constantly, then stop. It goes from minor to making the material un-watchable. I'm thinking it's the player, as the resolution stays at 1080P. Normally if it's a internet bandwidth issue, the player will switch to standard definition....It's staying at 1080p.
Anyone encounter this? I'm thinking I should just exchange it for another one.
Bluray disc function is flawless and unaffected.

Samsung BD-J7500 Streaming Issue

I just received the unit from Amazon.........Picture is fantastic. I bought this particular player as it has 7.1 analog outs, and didn't feel like buying a new receiver for HD audio.

Is the Samsung - BD-J7500/ZA Inappropriate For My Needs

Replacing a Sony BDP-S6500. My sound system is a great Bose SoundTouch 130 Soundbar with Acoustimass (sorta Sub). Our HDTV is a outstanding yet max 1080P LG OLED 55E9100.

Best Buy Magnolia has a great deal on the Samsung BD-J7500/ZA - Streaming 3D Wi-Fi Built-In Blu-ray Player with UHD 4K Upscaling. My fear is this player may be vast over kill for both our Bose 130 and LG 55E9100.

Your opinions please.

Hello! Not sure what you mean by "overkill." I bought my J7500 on sale at BB Magnolia also about 2 months ago. I have it hooked up to a Panny Plasma 1080p and it works fine. Clear, sharp picture, etc. Not sure about soundbars as I have mine going thru a Pioneer Elite SC 81 receiver.

Hope this helps!

Was watching a Netflix rental of The Mummy last night on by Samsung BD-J7500 and I just happened to notice on my Denon 4300 that it was showing Dolby Atmos for the audio stream. After researching, it appears that if a blu-ray player can bitstream Dolby True HD/DTS Master Audio to the AVR and let the AVR handle the decoding, we can get DVA and DTSX! As Johnny Carson would say, "I did not know that!"

I have since copied the The Mummy with MakeMKV onto an external hard drive. Then, I tried viewing the movie via Plex on the J7500 directed thru the 4300H. However, the audio format shown on the 4300H was not Dolby Atmos, but Dolby Digital + (LogoS) (the DD logo plus an S) That format is described in the 4300H manual as Dolby Digital+ with Dolby Surround, not Dolby Atmos. So I'm wondering what happened to the Atmos format. Is it being lost in the MakeMKV copy, the PLEX playback thru the J7600, or the 4300H interpretation? Any thoughts?

Change App Store Samsung BD-J5700/ZC

I bought the Samsung BD-J5700/ZC on sale while in Canada over the holidays.

When I connected it back home in the US I can't even select (no option) for the US/US app store. Apparently the /ZC was manufactured specifically for the Canadian market, while the ZA was manufactured for the US.

Does anyone know what would happen if I tried to install the firmware for the ZA in the ZC so I can access US content?

Is there a work around for this (what do people do if they move between countries)?

7.1 analogue output to 5.1 input

Hi guys,

I have questions regarding Samsung BD-J7500:

1. As many of you might know it has 7.1 analogue output. I am considering to buy it and connect to my av receiver which has 5.1 analogue input (an old av receiver with no digital input). I don’t see any way in user manual to tell the Blu Ray player that I am using only 5.1 output (there is no choice in setting for 5.1 speaker system). What will happen with Surround Back Left and Right channels, will they be automatically merged with Surround Left and Right channels or I will simply loose sound of Surround Back Left and Right channels? Does anybody have an experience with it?

2. Does it play mkv video files well in network or on an USB device (some of my files are 45gb or even 71gb)?

I appreciate your time.

Hi Paata1971. I'll try to answer.
1. I have mine hooked via HDMI to an older 7.1 receiver which is set up as 5.1. I obtain 5.1 sound just fine (even with DTX-HD), so I am assuming you will loose the Surround Back Left and Right as you stated. I don't think they merge but I could be mistaken.

2. I have done this both ways--stream via wifi and a direct usb connection. The wifi streaming is from a Zapitti mini 4k which has two HDD's attached via 3.0 usb. The Zapitti is hard-wired to the router (cat 5). I've found this is not always reliable on the Samsung end. If the Zapitti is not fully up and running the Samsung will recognize the Zapitti media device but I'm only able to access a few folders on one of the attached HDD's. If it does recognize both HDD's I am not always able to display subtitles, etc. even though they are mixed in the file and not in a separate folder. If one or both HDD"s are recognized I am able to stream mkv files fine with full functionality (FF, Rew, Pause, etc.) but the subtitles are still hit-and-miss. Largest file has been ~24GB.

I've had much better results connecting a WD easystore portable HDD to the usb. Works flawlessly; subs are available, etc. The largest mkv file I've tried so far was ~24GB.

Hope this helps!

Is there any difference in video or audio quality between Blu Ray disc and ISO image of it (or mkv file for the same movie)?

I think the BluRays are very slightly sharper in detail than the files, but I haven't performed a lot of picture setting tweaks, etc. Both the media player and Samsung are more than adequate for my needs.

The Zapitti forum is here to answer the apps, etc. questions:
https://www.avsforum.com/forum/39-net...uo-thread.html
I obtain equally great sound from both the Samsung & Zapitti. As far as it replacing a BR player I don't think the Zapitti plays menus, etc. like a BR player does. In my situation I play mostly files and am not concerned with menus, extras, etc. so I haven't really explored this. The Zapitti forum is a good place to ask.

Having said that I will on occasion watch a BR for the extras. 99% of the time I use the Zapitti for my needs. Make sense?

Sorry--not sure what "it" you are referring to. If it's the Zapitti--yes, no issues. If it's the Samsung via network or USB drive I have not tried this yet.

to fellow J5900 owners, as this happened to you: back in December, I downloaded the latest firmware: B-JM63BSPWWB-1020.1 and after that, the DVD drive stopped working. You put a disc in, you'll hear the player struggle a bit and then it re-opens the disc tray and that's that.

Was it because of the Firware update? did the laser used for DVDs inside the player crapped out?

Just wondering if it happened to someone else.

To answer my own question BD-J7500 has an option in settings/sound/speaker configuration where you can indicate that you don't have Surround back speakers. In this case the Blu Ray player merges sound of Surround Back channels into other channels (does not output Surround Back sound separately).

This option was not described in the user manual and Samsung also did know about that.

Hi guays,

I am experiencing the following problem with BD-J7500: I start playing a film (especially 4k film) in Netflix app and picture quality is bad. I rewind back a little bit and continue playing and suddenly the picture quality is perfect. Have you experience such thing? I need to know whether the Blu Ray player is defective (in which case I will return it buy somewhere else) or it does not have to do with the Blu Ray player.

On the other hand I have another Blu Ray player (UBD-K8500, I bought two Blu Ray players to choose on from) it never has such problem, no matter how many times I start playing the same films (same as with BD-J7500) the picture quality is perfect.

My internet speed is good (38 mbs) and I set Netflix to play films always in high quality, no matter what speed.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks

BR Player stopped playing blurays after DVD

Hi,

I am hoping someone could shine some light on an issue I have had with 2 different blu ray players. I have a SONY BDP S760 and a Samsung BDJ7500. On both of them I played a DVD (Region 2 Studio Ghibli) and both of them then didn't recognise the Casino Royale bly ray I put in straight after.

I reset the Sony and then it was fine but the Samsung as of now still refuses to read any blu ray.

Any help would be much appreciated.

I just got a BD-J5100 multi-region player and when I powered it up I was immediately prompted to download software update 1021.0:



Should I install this update and will it affect the multi-region feature?

One curious thing is that this 1021.0 update isn't even shown on Samsung's support page (see here), which only shows update 1020.1, dated Dec 2017, to be the latest update, which is what I currently have in my BD-J5100. That makes me even more reluctant to install 1021.0.

Does anyone know how to turn off the secondary audio on these players, I have the J7500. I am pretty sure it is on because I have a couple of disney discs and it will make a "ding" sound and ask you to select the language. For this reason, I cannot get the receiver to read atmos, only trueHD even when selected to BitStream from the player, he secondary audio MUST be turned off, but there isn't an option for it.

Reporting audio surround to reciever

Hi

My marantz sr7013 cannot detect the audio surround type coming from my 2015 model Samsung bd-j5700. The sr7013 (in auto detect mode) correctly identifies audio from any of several sources delivered via roku, but apparently the 5700 isn't correctly reporting the surround audio mode. Could that be? Yes I did the latest update

HULU not supported on BD-J5900???

Don't watch Hulu too often, last time was winter this year. Today when I tried to watch Hulu via the app, I got an error message that said Hulu is no longer supported. The 5900 has the current software update. Any ideas?

Samsung UN65HU8550 TV; Samsung BD-J5900; Vizio S5451 SB; Cox Cable Cisco 9865 WHDVR
