I replaced C-6900 with C-7900...Then my Onkyo 905 HDmi 1.3 can working fine HD Audio


And I really love the Auto HDMI mode

HDMI Audio Output

Set the audio output method when a receiver is

connected to the player.

Auto : If the HDMI OUT 1 and HDMI OUT 2

terminals are connected to a TV and receiver

respectively, you will hear audio through the

device connected to HDMI OUT 2.

If the receiver is not connected to the player or

turned off, you will hear audio through the TV

speakers.

HDMI 1 & HDMI 2 : You can listen to the audio

from both the receiver and TV speakers

Is video output from both HDMI ports, or is the second audio only?

For now only the BD-C6900. Eventually it should show up on this and many other models. The Sony players already have a reference to it in their interface. For low bandwidth users Hulu Plus looks dramatically better than Netflix now if they just had something you wanted to watch.

Boy ain't that the truth. I subscribed since it's a novelty but I think I'll be canceling soon as it's a complete ripoff. It doesn't hold a candle to Netflix selection wise.

I gave them a month to catch the last season of 24. Well worth it and after that I couldn't find a reason to continue. However I noticed they have Doc Martin which I really enjoyed via Netflix.

Actually the C7900 does have Hulu Plus now. I just checked last night and they must have just added it, as I had to download it as a new app. I'm not a Hulu user so I'm not familiar with the interface, but you have the option to request an invite if you are not a subscriber to it. Looks like they added the Best Buy streamer as well now, CinemaPlay, I believe it is?

How is the connection (wired / wireless) speed. Does it have the same buffering / dropout issues as C6900 with netflix HD streaming. TIA

Does it allow you to view various TV shows, movies, and such for free (without subscribing) like the BD-C6900?

Yes, there were 19 full sample videos to check out for free without subscribing. Stuff like Supersize Me, full HD episodes of Parenthood, Desperate Housewives, Family Guy, etc. I watched most of the Ugly Betty pilot episode in HD and it looked and sounded great without any sync issues (I'm on FIOS).

No problem with initial wireless connection or streaming. I can watch HD stuff without a hitch, though I am on Verizon FIOS which is more than fast enough to stream HD.

I have a slight sync problem with the HDMI audio only output. Has anyone else experienced this and what audio delay setting did you use?


Thanks,

How does the 7900 compare to the high end Sony 3d players? To be honest I'm unimpressed with my 7900. The quality of the video is fine, but for $400 it just seems cheap. The remote looks like something from a $50 tv.

Are there any British television samples on there? Maybe the show Spaced?


I've noticed that the British shows in Hulu Plus have the worst sync on my 6900. Sometimes the audio starts out fine but then it eventually drifts out of sync worse and worse as it continues to play. Most notably in the last minute before Hulu goes to a commercial.


If you ever get a chance to watch a British show please let me know if this also happens on the 7900.

I am posting this to anyone that has a DENON AVP-A1HDCI pre/pro and is considering either a Samsung TV or the Samsung BD-C7900 blu-ray player or both together with the AVP .....


I have confirmed the HDMI control (Denon) and the Anynet+ (Samsung), which are proprietary versions of CEC, work very well together.


I have the PN58C8000 Samsung TV, BD-C7900 BluRay player and the Denon AVP-A1HDCI and they all work flawlessly with the CEC. I turn on the bluray player and the TV and AVP turn on and the AVP will automatically switch to the correct source. Cool.


I am also getting 1080p/60 to the TV and no problems with bitstream DTS-HD or Dolby TrueHD.


The BD-C7900 loads very fast and is very quiet. The reviews of the unit compared to the $499 Oppo reference player are very good. Some said they can tell no difference in video quality. So if all you are after is excellent video and bitstream audio, the Sammy might even be a better choice for $200 less. And, you get 3D capability via 2 HDMI outputs which the Oppo doesn't have nor does it have 3D capability.
