thank you very much friend, the information I have is that oppo 203 does but only with BDMV files, tell me something I have been researching a lot about media players, KDLINKS, CHINOPPO, DUNE HD, ZAPPITI, EGREAT, HIMEDIA, POPCORN HOUR, some exhibit original blu ray menus, others only bdlite, do you know other brands to pass me and so I do more research? in your opinion which are the best in this matter?

chinoppo aka m9702 is by far the best of ALL of them. I have had nearly every single media player in the last 10-14 years for playback of local media....

thanks again, does chinoppo play with both iso and bdmv menus? the problem is that here in Brazil m9702 is not found and imports are very expensive here, taxes etc ... apart from m9702 in your ranking, which would be 2nd, 3rd best?

If your only concern is blu ray ISO and menus, you can easily get by with a Dune Smart series. They are discontinued right now but that would be my second choice for blu ray ISO files with menus.
yes, the chinoppo does iso with full menus as well as 4kuhd iso with menus an dolby vision

yes you mean the dunes hd smart d1 and b1 correct? even the b1 has a blu ray player together, so even though they are old and discontinued they still run iso and bdmv with original menus?

dune hd i can with good price used, the smart b1 or d1 version, can you name me sites where chinoppo are sold? I'm going to try to see if I can find a way to bring him with more taxes, if I can't get there for the dunes, I also have an option here in Brazil of the dune base 3d, can I buy too? is it reliable like the smart model? I was even surprised that you put the dunes in front of zappiti, egreat, himedia and kdlinks that have 4k versions, although they are all android and I sincerely prefer linux or similar

Hi everyone, I just bought a Sony KD-65AG9, looking for a 4K player now.

If I want 4K streaming (netflix and amazon prime) including Dolby Vision, and DV Vision on Disc playback, what are the best options?

Sony UBP-X700 for sure. I love mine. I have owned Sony blu ray players for years and never had an issue and the x700 is considered by many to be the best bang for the buck for 4k players anywhere. Hard to go wrong with it.
I've also heard that the Panasonic UB420 is decent but I haven't owned it.

Hey guys I'm looking for a 4K blu ray player that supports blu rays in dolby vision and dolby atmos and that can also play .mkv rips (remux) in HDR (dolby vision preferably) with Atmos. My set up is LG B9 and Samsung K950 soundbar. My Xbox One X won't play Dolby Vision blu rays and the integrated LG media player doesn't support Atmos or Dolby Vision for the blu ray rips. I'd rather get a blu ray player that can do it all and end the headaches.

Looking for a 1080p blu-ray player to play rented Netflix discs. I like the specs of the Sony 3700 but the Amazon reviews make me think that it is junk. 28% 1 star reviews! Discs getting stuck in the unit and sending it in for repair with the disk inside. Is this real?

The other unit is a Best Buy offering that is not on Amazon and it is the LG-BP175. Since it is not on Amazon there are no reviews there and I am unable to find any reviews elsewhere so guidance is lacking.

I have a high end DVI cable from my processor to my projector. Other 1080p equipment works over the cabling but I doubt that 4K would work so I do not want anything that outputs just 4k. If I ever update to 4k it will be streaming with a Chromecast right at the projector and coax audio back to the processor. But I have other reasons that say 4K is not in my future so it is just not desirable.

There may be other options I should consider that I am unaware of so I am not limiting myself other than by my ignorance. I have checked all the posts on this thread back to the beginning of 2019 and searched Google without getting guidance.

To be more specific I have two questions other than what should I get:
1) Does the S3700 really eat discs like the reviews say?
2) Is the LG-175 any good?

I am leaning toward the LG-175 but concerned that there are no reviews of it anywhere that I can find.

Thanks for your help.

PS. I am running 4.1 surround because the fronts are so good that even adding a Thiel center degraded the sound.

Panasonic and Sony seem to be the most popular. And there is no such thing as a player that outputs just 4k. All 4k players can also output 1080p; you simply designate the desired output in the settings menu.

I'm setting up my first theater w/ projector and in need of a quality UHD Bluray player. My theater is open concept and setup for Dolby atmos. Should i rely on my bluray player for the upscaling? Leave that to the projector?

TIA!

The Panasonic UB420 is probably your best value, and it works very well for projectors, with the UB820 as a potential upgrade. Both have excellent upscaling as well and it's probably best to let the BD player do the upscaling, but that's easy to test. The UB420 also does well for streaming from Netflix and Primevideo, as it probably has more options to enhance streaming content via SDR to HDR conversion and via it's HDR Optimizer, than other streaming devices.

Currently available Blu-ray player to play DSD/PCM files off of a USB hard drive

I'm looking for a currently available (new) Blu-ray player to play DSD/PCM files off of a USB hard drive. The player would also need to have apps for Netflix and Prime Video. I'm setting this up for a friend so she can play music files off of a hard drive. Any suggestions would be appreciated !
