    Hi All,
    I'm auditioning an RP91 and love the video quality of it. But one thing I miss from my old Sony player is the video bit rate and audio bit rate displays. I cannot find these in the Panasonic instruction booklet or onscreen. Am I missing something or does the Panasonic just not have those features?
    It's weird that it also doesn't have a time remaining function either, for chapter or title. Nothing major in these omissions, but they were something I thought would almost be standard issue with players nowadays.
    Thanks!

    Ironic that I was just on that page. But I think the time remaining applies only to DVD-A and CDs. It doesn't work for DVDs.

    So has anyone figured out how to get the audio bit rate? It says something like that is possible in the manual but I can't figure out how to get it to display.
    I agree with Rob. There's a lot of info there in the manual but it's not presented in a clear, concise manner.
    In my experience, my Sony players have come with some of the better manuals I've read. Layout isn't cluttered, indexed, lots of pictures/diagrams.

    Thanks Dan,
    The Sony may have two up on the Panny. It has a feature that makes the player choose the highest # of channels soundtrack as default (i.e. will start playing the 5.1 automatically, if that track is available).
    I have been scouring the manual for this feature but alas I don't think the RP91 does it.
    Oh well, I'll just have to settle for superior picture instead of bells and whistles. At this price (I paid sub $500) I don't think I can complain. If I really wanted the best of both worlds I'd buy the 9000ES with some sort of scaler for 4:3 material. [​IMG]
