Just Cancelled £119.99 order from Dixons and ordered one from Play. £20.00 saved. Many thanks.

Looked at this in Best Buy the other day, looks like it can play BBC iPlayer and also Five on Demand too. My Sony TV doesn't do this so for an extra £99 I would be able to add this functionality.

Mind you, does a PS3 allow you to do the same?
#6
Fantastic bit of kit I love mine to bits! iPlayer upscaling is fantastic compared to my Humax Foxsat or XBox.

Can you claim VAT back too on Sony's current promotion?

not with this model

I bought this last time Argos was doing it for £99. It's a GREAT player. I've thrown DIVX/MKV files at it and the interface is really slick. Start up on the machine is really quick too. IPlayer HD is a joy :)

Has on demand movie service from Sony themselves (forgot the service name) and LoveFilm too. It's also a great way to view HD trailers on TV.

Small gripe - when watching any media aside from a disc, if you go to eject the disc, it stops the playback of the media you're currently watching. Can anyone else confirm if its happens to them too?
#10
Confirmed, that's a known issue.
The Sony rental service is called Qriosity.
Great player, heat added.
#11
does this support the DLNA - so I can stream AVI direct from my PC
suspended#12
Remember guys this can't play back media files from an NTFS formatted harddrive so the max will be 4gb sized files so you'll need to split 4.4gb and 7.8gb .mkv files into multiple parts in order to be played. The LG BD560 can play from NTFS formatted harddrives and is around £90-95.

It does have iPlayer - don't think 5 on Demand is there though - not last time i checked
#14
Demand 5 is there too.

Can play via DLNA, but the fast forwarding/scanning can be a bit slow, but I guess thats to be expected.

hajj_3, didnt know that so thanks for the info. Biggest MKV file I played so far is just shy of 3GB.
#15
Of course, this was only £59.99 at Amazon last week - though only for a few seconds!
#16
NTFS playback via usb ain't supported by most of the Sony Blu-Ray players. Mate of mine bought his 570 without realising this, d'oh!
#17
I have one, still boxed that came a few days ago. On the box it definitely claims to have 5OD.
#18
Great deal. Free HDMI cable on Amazon too, but make sure you select the offer from the product page, and add both items to your basket via the link.

ah it was you that got it. when you say 'this' you probably mean the one in front of you. it being the one and only one that went for 59.99 as a black fri 'deal'!! lol

Amazing price - been looking at this player since the flash deals on Amazon last week.

Looks a great player with nothing but good reviews.

This player gets great reviews, and at this price it's a bargain.

This is a great BluRay/DVD player & upscaler.

About playing video files on it... I couldn't get it to play anything I encoded with Handbrake using h.264, no matter what profile I used. It was fine with h.263 but I saw that as a step backwards. Getting it to work over DLNA was also a disaster, I tried a few applications like Twonky, WMP11 but it just didn't like them (even with a reference h.264 from the DivX site that would play from a USB drive). I hear PS3 Media Server can be coaxed to work with it but I haven't tried that.

Also it won't play m2ts files from a BR disc from USB/DLNA.

Lovefilm is a nice idea but the quality of the encoding of some of the films is pretty bad, plus only a small subset of their disc catalog is available to subscribers...

Just putting it into perspective for anyone that thinks this is going to be an all-singing-and-dancing media player, it's not in my opinion and I've spent a fair bit of time trying. I have another media player which is fine with all of the above formats.
#23
I have one of these sitting alongside a PS3 and connected to a Sony TV (not a fanboi particularly, just a few good deals!)

After an over-the-internet firmware upgrade, Qriocity and a few other features become available.

The PS3 *does* support the iPlayer, but the usability of the s370 transforms the experience. Pausing / resuming / ffwd / rewind is a pain in the **** on a PS3; not so on this player where it operates exactly as you would expect.

YouTube and 5OD are similarly excellent (although searching in YouTube is always a bit laborious without a full keyboard).

Recommended unreservedly; just bought a second one (for the streaming media and iPlayer) from Amazon, cheers.

Nice one

What's the other media player you have?

And I heard you need to buy an expensive adaptor to have wi-fi?

No, I didn't get one ... by the time it came on I'd already realised it was probably futile trying to buy anything in that sale (especially when you realized that clicking the "buy now" button only added it to a shopping basket and didn;t commit you to a sale so doubtless there were loads of people pressing the "buy" button as soon as it appeared knowing that they could then sit back for an a hour or two before deciding whether to actually check out and pay for it or simply decide to delete it from their basket)
#28
is it as good as onoko?
#29
I have this player and it is an absoultely great media player...I use divx files from USB quite often as well as my blu-ray discs and iPlayer HD etc. Would recommend at this price (I paid £120 from Sainsbury's). Only gripes is the jumping back to main menu when you eject a disc whilst doing anything else, and also the £75 I had to pay for the wireless dongle to stop me having to stretch an ethernet cable over from my lappy and bridge the connection to my router.

Better. One is a Blu Ray player, the other a yogurt.

Seriously, I have this player and an Onkyo amp, after all we all know they make great amps for an unknown make.

Many thanks

(373 model. Same player, different remote) On the off chance somone actually requires TWO of these, you can get them for £158 (i.e. £79 each) from of all places Harrods!

I thought this would make a nice Christmas present to ask family to club together for, but now realise I'd need a £62 wireless dongle as well for the iplayer and 5OD, shame it's not integrated.

if you can stretch a bit further the sony bdp 570 has integrated wifi.(and 3d). it's 174.99 but you can claim the vat back from sony so it will cost 148ish. amazon have the details on the bdp570 page.

Couldn't you just buy a pair of homeplugs? The Comtrend 200mbps pair are just £40 on Amazon. i have them and they are fantastic.
#38
I git this when it was on offer ay Costco a few months ago. It is infact brilliant plays everything I've thrown at it. You don't need a wireless dong you can use homeplugs. There us talk of another firmware upgrade for itvplayer and 4od loads of chat about it on avforums. Dana was a doddle for me took about 5 mins instructions on avforums.

I typed that on my fone. Apologies for the typos. Dlna not Dana although I'm sure she's v nice.

Thanks for the info, I had a look, seems better value with the wifi built in, but can you still claim the VAT back with the sony player if purchased from Amazon rather than The Sony Store?

Thanks for that, I have never heard of them before - just had a google and they look good. I just bought the sony one from John Lewis as my mum had some vouchers for there but I might send it back and get the homeplugs for £22 less but will they definitely work? Apparently you can't just use a normal dongle so either a sony wifi dongle or ethernet cable will do.
