    Sony UPB-X700 player - problem with DVDs of old TV material in 4:3 ratio

    Thanks Todd. That's reassuring in a way - at least it's not an issue with my player. But it is really bad that major companies like Disney as well as the BBC here in the UK have made this kind of encoding error on their discs.

    Sony UPB-X700 player - problem with DVDs of old TV material in 4:3 ratio

    Hi everyone. I have come across a strange issue with my Sony UPB-X700 player when playing certain DVDs of older TV material in the 4:3 aspect ratio. The main problem is that, if I'm playing such a DVD and I then power down the player, i.e. with the DVD still inside, when I restart the disc...

    Problem with Panasonic TV not recognising an HDMI input source

    It's OK - I've found the solution and it turned out to be something completely ridiculous! My TV setup includes a setting for entering a description for each of the HDMI sources (e.g. "Blu-ray", "DVD", etc.). When my TV was originally installed, I was only using the HDMI2 input, so the...

    Problem with Denon receiver shutting off

    Hi John, I tried what you suggested, and it did indeed solve the immediate problem. But obviously I need to get a new subwoofer as a long-term solution. So meanwhile I've restored the original receiver settings, and I'll just settle for playing 'The Favourite' at a slightly lower volume...

    Problem with Denon receiver shutting off

    Thanks very much John. I checked my receiver settings and currently it is set to "no sub" as I thought. So I'll try your idea and let you know if it solves the immediate problem. I do intend to get a new subwoofer - I just need to do some research to find a suitable model for my setup. (I'm in...

    Problem with Denon receiver shutting off

    Ah... you might be on to something here. At the moment I don't have a subwoofer - my previous one failed recently and I haven't got around to replacing it yet. So my speaker configuration is currently 5.0. The front speakers are KEF Reference 3, the centre speaker is KEF 200C and the rear...

    Problem with Denon receiver shutting off

    I've had a very strange problem with my Denon AVR-X4100WE2 receiver. When I play my US Blu-ray of 'The Favourite', the receiver is shutting itself off at 50' 41" into the movie at the point when there is a loud gunshot on the soundtrack. The volume is set to 68 dB, which is my usual volume...

    Do I need a new receiver for playing UHD discs?

    Thanks very much guys for all the good advice on the HDMI cables. I'll definitely buy those Monoprice cables.

    Do I need a new receiver for playing UHD discs?

    Thanks very much Robert. Just one more question - will my current HDMI leads be OK for passing the 4K signal? I've been using these leads for several years for Blu-ray discs. I've seen references to "high-speed 4K" HDMI leads in another thread here. Would these be better or doesn't it make any...

    Do I need a new receiver for playing UHD discs?

    Hi Robert, Thanks for the very quick reply! My receiver is the Denon AVR-X4100W. (I'm in the UK, so this is a UK product.)

    Do I need a new receiver for playing UHD discs?

    Hi everyone, I've been using Blu-ray for a long time and I'm now planning to upgrade to 4K/UHD by buying a new 4K TV and a new 4K disc player. However I intend to continue using my current 5.1 audio set-up (i.e. I'm not planning to upgrade to Dolby ATMOS, etc.) I'm currently using a Denon...

    Tarantino on Blu Ray

    Yes but it's a 1080/50i transfer, so should be avoided.
