Issue#305: Just installed Onkyo RZ900, getting 5.1 on blu-ray but not HBO GO or Youtube with PS4

  • As the title states, I just picked up an RZ900 and am having some issues. I'm running HDMI's and use my PS4 for everything, blu-ray, HBO GO, Youtube, etc. I get 5.1 with blu-ray through the PS4 but as soon as I switch to HBO GO or Youtube it will only play the front towers even though my receiver shows all the speakers to be lit up. I'm by no means a pro but I have no idea what I'm missing. My old Pioneer with optical cables played everything just fine. Any help would be appreciated.

    I cannot get my PS4 to play blu-ray dvd movies on our Samsung Smart Class 3D 1080p TV, it does play the PS4 games no problem.

  • Issue#149262: Video Quality - Streaming and Blu Ray quality of PS4 vs Standalone BR Player?

    Hi guys. I'm wondering what the consensus is on the PS4 in the forums vs. a standalone Blu ray player. Primarily concerned with Blu ray playback quality over standalone player say something like BDP-S6500. I have the BDPS6500 and I think it's good but I'm wondering if the PS4 is just as good or better than that player in terms of video quality. Thanks. The

  • Issue#186351: Sony - Sony Blu-ray/ DVD player won't connect to Amazon Prime, Netflix or YouTube

    I have a Sony Blu-Ray/ DVD Player Model BDP-S2100 that has worked fine up until today. When I try to connect to Amazon, Netflix, YouTube or really any service on the box it says that it cannot verify the network connection and never completes the connection. I went to the network settings and tested wifi connection there, which passes and the box says it is OK. I have tested the services on my wii, the services and my wifi are functioning fine. I have also unplugged the Sony player for 5 minutes and plugged it back in and tried to connect. Same issue.Awaiting your reply.Thanks

  • Issue#287503: HP - Installed new Blu Ray player and the playback is pixelated.

    I recently installed a HIGHDING SATA Blu-ray BD-R/RE Drive Burner Writer Replacement for HP Pavilion g7 g7t m7 Series  (it is a replacement for a regular dvd multi writer but it matches the number 682750-001) that I bought on Amazon. It works great playing dvd's but I am having trouble with the blu ray discs. I had bought the Nero blu ray dvd player and installed it, but when I contacted Microsoft Help line thay couldn't figure it out (  I think the guy was in a hurry fir some reason) all they could suggest is to get an installation disc from the people I bought the player from. When I contacted them to return it so I could buy one that came with a disc, they suggested I download a program called Leawo Blu Ray Player. I did that and it playes the Blu Ray dvd's now but the picture is pixelated! The sound is perfect, it's just the picture is the problem, and I am using a brand new disc that I opened just for that purpose. I am going to try other discs as well to make sure

  • Issue#289546: PS4/Xbox versus standalone Blu Ray

    So I need a Blu ray player for a new home theater (120" + Epson 5030ub + definitive technology 6.1) Instead of spending $200-300 on a Blu Ray player, I was wondering if I could use an Xbox or ps4 as a player and if that's satisfactory. I'm not a big gamer, but this seems like a good 2:1 unless there is a major downgrade in picture quality or speed. Any thoughts? And preferred players? Trying to stay under $300.

  • Issue#337002: Playstation - Sony's 4K Blu-ray player NEEDS to be the next PS4 (ONLY the PS4) and here's why...

    So I've been in the market here lately for a 4K blu-ray player; being a fan of Sony products I naturally looked for a Sony 4k blu-ray player to match my Sony 4k Bravia...couldn't find one. so I am scratching my head thinking how is it the proprietors of 4K tech haven't released a 4K blu-ray player to compete with other manufactures like Samsung and LG. Then I catch a rumor floating around about a new Playstation (4.5) with slitghtly more processing power and possibly a 4K blu-ray player and I am intrigued. This gets me to thinking: Sony needs this but they need to do it right, and this is my suggestion based on comparisons to the PS3 and the emerging blu-ray technology at that time. Sony NEEDS to produce a 4K Blu-Ray player (despite their media player) and it NEEDS to be the next generation PS4...and ONLY the PS4. Here's why: -Current 4K blu-ray players start at $399 (more than the cost of a PS4)-If Sony can add a 4K Blu-ray optical drive to the PS4 then it will aut

I have considered getting the wiz on blu ray but not sure how it would look.

  • Issue#589083: Playstation - PS4 won't play DVD or Blu-Ray movies

    Just bought a PS4 and am overall happy with my experience.  Unfortunately one issue has emerged. When I insert a DVD or Blu-Ray movie the console recognizes it correctly, however, when I try to play it, the screen changes and displays the stand-by "spinning circle of light".  I have left it like that for as long as ten minutes with no change.  It reads my game discs fine. Based on my research into similar problems, here is what I have attempted: I have tried multiple Blu-Rays and DVDs. I have tired changing the hdmi input on my television and changing it back.I have switched on and off the option to have my discs connect to the internet.I have made sure to unplug all USB ports.I have tried restarting the system.I have restored the console to the system defaults.I have initialized the console. I'm out of ideas.I have system update 3.50 Thank you for your time.

  • Issue#723407: Playstation - PS4 controller will not connect to Sony Blu-Ray S1700

    I have a Sony Blu-Ray player S1700 equipped with PS Now that does not support bluetooth (and I don't have a smart TV or even a TV that has bluetooth). I tried to connect a PS4 controller to the Blu-Ray player via USB. The controller light flashes yellow/white once. When I push the ON button for the controller, the light flashes blue a few times, then nothing. I tried resetting the controller. I tried turning off and unplugging the Blu-Ray player in hopes it would magically recognize the controller. I tried fully charging the controller and connecting it, still nothing. I tried a different controller, going through all the same motions, still nothing. How do I get this player to recognize a controller? Does it have to be plugged in with an official Playstation charge and play cable? If anyone has encountered this or has any advice, I'd really appreciate your input!

  • Issue#775175: Cabling my blu ray home theatre to tv, paytv box and ps4

    Hey I just wanted to clarify about the way i have my home theatre components connected. Currently I have a HDMI running from panasonic st50 plasma and panasonic BTT790 blu ray home theatre sound system. This cable is connected to ARC ports of both tv and theatre system. I then have my ps4 connected by hdmi from tv to console and also my pay tv box (foxtel) connected by hdmi from tv to console. When watching a blu ray i get cinema sound with bass and effects. But when watching foxtel and playing netflix /blu rays on ps4 the sound comes out my theatre speakers but its lacking the cinema sound. Have I dont something wrong with cables or is it in the settings of devices. I checked the manual for theatre system and it says I should connect other devices (ie the ps4 and pay tv box) to the hdmi in ports in the back of the home theatre? Does this work. I though these devices would have to be cabled directly to tv? Can I leave the cables as is and use the 'ext in' bottom on remote? I

  • Issue#829186: PS4 Blu-Ray Player or PS3 Blu-Ray Player to watch movies?

    Hello Evereyone! Quick question.......Which Blu-Ray player is better? The one in the PS3 or the one in the PS4? I have both hooked up to my ZT60 as I still use the PS3 for older games that I like to play again. Now I know the Oppo Blu-Ray player is among the best but i simply can't afford $500 for one right now so I'll be using either the PS3 or the PS4 to watch movies. So which player handles Blu-Ray movies the best? I tried comparing them last night while watching 13 hours and really couldn't tell a difference. I apologize in advance if this topic has already been brought up. Thank you! Ronnie

  • Issue#937739: Help me fix Sony BDP-BX59 Blu-Ray HDMI Issue

    I bought Sony BDP-BX59 Blu-Ray Player (3D) from Costco about 3 to 4 years ago. It's hooked up to my Onkyo Receiver in Media Room and Receiver is connected to Epson projector. Everything was working fine until last month. I started experiencing few screen flickering using Blu-Ray. It was happening randomly in middle of watching a movie. Last week it completely went OFF and my projector complains "No Signal". I initially thought it's my Onkyo Receiver causing an issue, so I directly hooked up BP to Projector and still seeing the same issue. I also hooked it to my Vizio 4K TV and same issue there. I finally decided to hook up BP using Component cables and that worked fine! So my suspect is that HDMI port on Blu-Ray player has died. Any suggestion on how to troubleshoot or fix the issue? Or is this a sign of buying new Blu-Ray player now?
