NTFS HDD playback?

MKV playback yes or no?

Taken from a review posted on Amazon:

"USB on the front, allows you to play back from USB pens and HDD, huge amounts of file playback including MKV and Divx HD wich even the PS3 won't! "

Good player, good price. Got this in the £89.99 deal at Blockbuster. Mind you, it did come with 2 Blu Rays and 10 half price rental vouchers.
#8
Does this player has last memory option? My current player (LImit from HMV) does not have it and it really bothers me.
#9
Could be worth sticking a days overtime on for:)
#10

Purchased one of these last week from pc world £89.99. Great Player. It does have BD live.
Pc world's website list that this player has Netcast & can access the like of youtube etc & dlna connectivity.
But having connected it to the internet i found out that it does not have either. I did a little research and found that the UK spec BD550 player does not support Netcast or dlna, but the units destined for other contries do have this. I was a little dissapointed with this, but due to just having a new LG tv which did have these features as standard it was not a issue. I did however call PC world customer services and pointed this out to them and told them i wasnt happy as it had been advertised wrong, they apolagised and sent me a £20 voucher to use a pc world or currys (i could of also returned the player) so in a round about way i suppose it only cost me £69.99
Just noticed PC world have reduced the player to £79.99 (reserve & collect), but have still not changed the online description & features, a word to customer service and you may have £20.00 voucher too..

I've had this player since before Christmas and it plays MKV files perfectly well. I connect my TB hard drive via usb and it plays pretty much whatever I throw at it without burning files to disc, and it saves wear on the Blu - Ray drive (I have another Blu-Ray player that cost £200 and does'nt perform as well as this one). A bargain at this price. Heat added m8 !

Yes, or you can use homeplug/powerline adaptors; there is no wireless option.

A file format which usually contains HD video.

How reliable are power line adaptors? I was thinking aboutthis solution for mine.

Cool, it plays MKV. May I ask if this plays MKV with subtitles?

Anime watcher here. :)
#25
i am pretty sure it does play subtitles. it can also stretch a 4:3 image to fill the screen ie gets rid of the big black boarders on left and right of a 4:3 image that sometimes appear, it does not cut anything off but fits it to the screen pretty cool.

I read that it is best setting the picyure to auto on the dvd settings to make it right, and not to alter your tv setting. Mine is ndue to be delivered tomorrow X)

I got this delivered yeaterday and have to say I am happy. Great picture at 1080P Blu Ray and it does a good job at upscaling DVD's. At 69.99 it is a good value player that I would recommend to anyone either wanting a second player for a back room like me, or for anyone considering taking the plunge into Blu ray but doesn't want to spend a fortune. Overall excellent value.

I'm very pleased with my BD550 (£69.99 delivered from Dixons):-

BD Live - Works but seemingly not many Blu-Rays have Live content...
BD / DVD Playback - Excellent no complaints at all - seems fairly quick to load too.
USB video: - Plays virtually all my VOB, .avi and .mkv files very well and handles subtitles and different audio streams (some have sound format that isn't supported).
USB Audio: Fine but must search by folder; haven't tried whether it can cope with playlists.
USB images: Again in slideshow mode seems to be limited to playing a folders contents; quite basic but images look great.
Remote: Very responsive (although a bit narrowly focused - you have to aim at the LG box). It can control my Sony Bravia very well. Only downside is that the 'essential' buttons are small and close together so you struggle in the dark to find pause, play or stop.

When I first powered it on it connected to the internet and found an update, which I installed.

The BD550 has a coax digital audio out for connecting to your sound system; rather than buy a coax cable after googling for advice I used the supplied video cable which works just fine.

You can rip CDs to .mp3 format on an attached USB device - I haven't experimented with that feature.

The manual for this can be found here

I don't know for sure; but reading of all the possible problems it seemed a lot better for me to run a 15m ethernet cable (which I've done) - I'm also investing in a couple of gigabit hubs from Amazon so for a lot less than the cost of the power lines I'll have a convenient fast network connection from my lounge to my NAS and internet router.

Thanks to Lilly_White on here messaging me with this link - I ordered on 22nd and received today! How is that for brilliant service and so pleased with it

I saw on Facebook, Amazon have posted that this is £69.99 again. Bearing in mind that I have no intention of using HD internetnet services such as iPlayer/Youtube. My main requirement is upscaling of DVDs and MKV/Xvid playback of movies off USB (both NTFS and FAT32) would you recomment this or Sony BDP S370/S380.

NB Sony BDP S380 is about £112 on Amazon last time I checked.
