I've been looking at this well reviewed model for a few weeks and just decided to order. Amazon, as well as having the best price I've found, are now offering a free Blu-ray of your choice (including Avatar or The Band of Brothers box-set amongst many others) and a free HDMI lead.

I know there are many cheaper machines available but the feature list of this unit is exactly what I'm after, so well worth a few quid more to me.

Can you plug in an external hard drive & play mkv files with this player ?
#2
Can someone tell me why being able to connect to BBC iPlayer is useful? I'm looking for a blu-ray player and don't understand why that is a feature worth having, what with tellys having direct access to such things.

TIA!
#3
bargain - plays MKV, AVCHD, DivX amongst other
not all tvs have bbci player built in so to some this is very useful
think you can plug in external hard drive but needs to be formatted in fat32 i think which doesn't support big drives but ways round that - only issues is might not be enough power from usb so would prob be best to have one with external power - check amazon review think someone who owns one has made commets regarding this

also what hi fi have just given 5 stars and said offers better pic and sound than the sony bdp760 which was a £400 machine big praise indeed
#4
Worth buying for Avatar alone but is this a 3D player or is that the next model up?

Isn’t the 3D version of Avatar not out until later in the year
#6
I purchased this and so far it has played anything I have flung at it, unlike the Bravia TV. The BBC iplayer saves you recording programmes yourself, freeing up channels to record elsewhere.
The only down point is it is wireless but the Sony dongle is expensive. The gamers probably know a way around this.

Can this puppy replace my WDTV drive then?

But sounds as though it has a bog standard Ethernet too, so if you have a cable handy you can use that surely?
#9
This sounded ideal until I found it that it doesn't have the 5.1 audio outputs and my ageing by rock sold Pioneer AVR1410 amp doesn't have HDMI
#10
Thanks op.

Amazon take the bisquit orderd this less than a week ago it dropped from £156 to £142 then 3 days after that it now comes with a free bluray and hdmi cable.

Theres me thinking i waited long enough to get a bluray player guess i should of waited longer .Email to amazon me thinks :roll:

Great player though no faults so far for me.

Thats a maatter of opinion, i thought avatar was crap!
#12
I'd be interested in watching the LoveFilm films that are available to me free online through my membership, would this unit be able to do that and if so how would I navigate etc? Through the remote control? Would any HD TV work with this set up or would it have to be Sony? Cheers :-)

need a blu ray player so this might be it

You don't agree with the whole 'Na'vi > Humans' concept I guess.

Picked one of these up from Comet using the Sony trade in deal.

Reserved it for collect in store at the web deal price of £169.99 and then with the Sony trade in deal I traded in an old Aiwa VCR (and I mean old) :) and got another £30.00 off so in total got it for £139.99p.
(Saved me a trip to the local recycling centre to dump the VCR)

Looking forward to viewing Avatar on blue-ray on my Panny 46".

:)
#17
Been looking at this for a while and will snap it up if anyone can let me know of a cheap way of getting this online wirelessly. Especially when you consider the chances of the PS3 getting Lovefilm support as well are pretty high (ala Netflix in the States) the price of the dongle will close the gap between the two.
#18
Except for the firmware updates, any advantage of this over the F&H Blu ray player? For eg: picture quality - has anyone done a comparison between these 2.

Only thing holding me back from buying the F&H is because of the lack of firmware updates and the only thing holding me back from buying this is the fact there is another blu ray player for half the cost - LOL!
#19
The Sony BDP-S470 blu ray player is the one which will recieve the 3d firmware update by the way.
#20
Hmmm, seems to have dropped the free HDMI lead & DVD.

:-(
#21
Please ignore my previous comment - I'm clearly an idiot!

#22
Ordered this from Coke Zone for 1000 points (it came with movie 2012), and just hooked it up Thursday. The picture is great on our 50-inch plasma, and the Internet videos and bbc iplayer are cool, too. Definitely worth the full price if you can't snag one on Coke Zone. ;)

Why?

It was showing how greedy Humans can be like stealing land from Native Americans. They said that we'd have already runed our Earth.
#24
Tempted but think I'll hold on for the 470. That way i'll be ready for 3D!
#25
A good comparison for this Sony model is the LG BD570 released today which has inbuilt wireless B/G/N and supplied with Nero streaming software. But wireless N would be really needed if streaming large files

Plays mkv files with profile 4.1 or higher thru USB External Hardrive formatted to NTFS so file size no problem and no conversion needed, seen it for £169.99 delivered at Digitech Electronics.

Unfortunately they have removed the analogue 7.1 sound from this model though. Doesn't have BBC IPlayer or Lovefilm options but does have You Tube also capable of Netflix and Hula if they ever get there act together in the UK...
#26
What HiFi magazine say the S370 player will be 3D Ready for a future firmware release. AV Forums mentioned the player can play at least 6Gb MKV files from a DVD disc.

I wonder if that means it can stream these from an DLNA server, in my case a Netgear wndr3700, and bypass the FAT32 USB constraints? I own the S370 and it has amazing bootup speeds. iPlayer works pretty well. I just find the long stream video list on the XMB a bit annoying. I wish they split these onto a separate menu!
#27
OK I have WD TV Live on order with amazon and was wondering what peoples thought were in contrast with that aside from the obvious bluray one. Especially like to know can this play from a DLNA server also ????
#28
does this play .iso?

does any know of a media player that can play iso?

Can anyone tell me if this can access 'YouTube' when ethernet connected to internet?
Any idea what it would be like compared to the Samsung BD-C5300?
There ws a good Blocklbutser deal posted earlier for this:
http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/660370/samsung-bd-c5300-blu-ray-player-6-f
I imagine the Samsung will be easier to Multiregion (DVD) than the Sony, does anyone
know if either can read large NFS .mkv files from USB sticks/drives?
Thanks.

Yes, you can watch YouTube when hooked to the Net on the Sony. You can type in a search, or just scroll through the most popular. You can also search Internet video in general, not just YouTube.

I'm specifically interested to know, does this allow you to view Tvcatchup.com? I'm in televisual hell right now, no cable, no freeview, VM cable made it half way down my street, wrong half for me!

I'm using an alternative to Sky provided by someone called Anna Log, it's 5 channels. No really, 5 channels!

Will this help me? Thanks guys.
#36
I am tied with the BB Samsung deal and this one.
>.< My first venture to HiDef /Blu ray on the TV/Player side of things so i'm as confuddled as can be :-D

Tempted by the BB deal but unsure if i'm missing any big differences.

Doubt it will let you watch tvcatchup, I haven't played with it too much but I tried to see if I could get to a site that plays U.S. tv shows that works fine on my laptop .... but I couldn't get to it on the blu-ray and when I searched for titles of the shows I wanted nothing came up. It's not like a Web browser where you can do any Internet, just specific things. There is a bbc Iplayer that lets you catch up on a huge listing of bbc shows with a perfect picture (most are shows that aired in the last 7 days, but with Ashes to Ashes at least it was episodes from the past 29 days). Various other things that are clips, like fitness clips and comedy clips and such. If there's any way you can even get freeview, that sounds more like what you need.
#38
Ok thanks for that. I have it all set up on a spare (old) laptop, tvcatchup and also on a month's free trial with Sky Player - quality is actually not bad for both on a 42" Toshiba - it's just all the messing around connecting audio & video lead etc, going to the websites and so on

Now if this is going to get Itv player and 4od in the near future I'd be buying one :)
