Thanks - good to know.

Can you access the chapter stops in the .MKVs on the 1000?

I've tried on the 800 via USB and network, and can't figure out a way to skip forward or back a chapter, which makes my intended use for older concert DVDs (480i, where the Sony processing is very good) more than a little frustrating.

Hey guys, thinking of buying UBP-X1000, but I'm confused is it Region Free or Not, some stores provide details its Region Free, some don't mention Region at all. I will be using it in with US purchased UHD disks and also with EU purchased.

UHD discs are region free. They can be purchased anywhere. It is not region free for standard Blu-rays or DVDs.

I'm experiencing freezes on UHD discs in this player. About 1/2 way through some discs, the playback freezes. The remote becomes totally unresponsive. After a minute or so, the player shuts off. I can then power on, restart the movie from where I left off and finish. This seems to happen on about 25% of discs that I play. Seems that some folks with the UBP-800 are experiencing similar issue. Any suggestions? Happened today with a brand new disc (Solo UHD), first play. Thanks!

When I first purchased my UBP-X800, I was getting picture freezes on many of the first UHD discs I played. A couple times I needed a complete shutdown to get going again. I was expecting a freeze on the first 100GB disc I played and sure enough......


Shortly thereafter, I put a USB in the front port......16GB at first, but not a long one, and have since replaced that with a 64GB low profile.......and have not had one picture freeze on any discs I have watched. I have not watched any of the original discs that froze, but I assume the problem is solved. I believe I read about this suggestion somewhere on this forum.



Try a USB and see if it helps.......incidentally, my player is not connected to the internet and I only use it for UHD discs.....

I want to put 2 UBP-X1000ES players in a rack: does anyone know if there is a way to disable the IR receiver or set one player to a different IR code?


I will control by RS232 but sometimes use the IR remote

I think you can download an owners manual from the Crutchfield site.

Since the October firmware upgrade, I have intermittent HDMI drops when playing back UHD discs. It happens approximately 1-3 times per movie. Totally random times. This did not happen prior to the firmware upgrade. Anyone else? Any suggestions? thanks

I will check again, but I'm pretty sure my USB drive was formatted as exFAT since I use it with my MacBook. My Samsung TV can read/play my MKV/MP4 files on it. And according to the X1000ES specs sheet, it does support exFAT, FAT and NTFS. So I don't know why it's having a problem seeing my video files.

Now, don't tell me the USB port on the X1000ES does NOT support mass storage drives (like 4 TB), right?
per the instruction manual: "The player can recognise Mass Storage Class (MSC) devices (such as flash memory or an HDD), Still Image Capture Device (SICD) class devices and 101 keyboard.'

What format does the USB stick need to be? Also have you noticed anything since using the usb stick?

I recently bought a x1000es as my x800 was just becoming so unreliable. It's been for for the 2 weeks I've had it but today we've just watched schindlers list on 4k and at the 2hour 30 point the disc froze and I had to hard reset by pulling the plug. This is annoying as I thought with the x1000es is way more expensive then the x800 I assumed this machine would be better.

Any help? I'm not connected to the internet in any way shape or form on this machine.

The USB is formatted as FAT32 and when I put it in the X800, I do not think I removed any preloaded bits the were on it. I just popped it in and it seemed to work. Since trying the USB stick, I have only had one freeze on a longer movie......probably a 100GB disc.......but I forget which one it was, possibly one of the latter Harry Potter movies. I also made sure a few items concerning updates and network stuff were disabled in the menus......though, like you, I do not have it connected to the internet. I went for many months without a freeze, and when it did freeze it was only a matter of either FF or chapter jumping and it played......no plug pulling necessary. Maybe it was only coincidence that there were no freezes since I used the USB......it was a 64GB drive. It can't hurt to give it a try.......it may work.

Cheers I'll give it ago. It's really bloody annoying to say the least it's like I'm constantly sat waiting for it to freeze which takes the enjoyment away from the movie.

I just wish sony would sort this out.

Anyone ever figure out what Picture quality mode set to auto will do? Mine has Direct as the default. Does the 1000ES come with a light sensor for the brighter room setting?

Do they have TrueHD? Sony won't play TrueHD audio from an MKV. It isn't an Oppo. Most disc players are not very good media players. Oppo was an exception.

No it's not. Just plain DD 5.1.
Is there any software that will report what is in the container file? Maybe I can convert it to something the Sony likes

Sony won't play back DD in general from an MKV.

You want help; I've got the cure for the "freezing problem".

A while back, someone posted a link to an article that detailed the issue/problem and the solution.

The gist of the article was this: the lazer and error correction software on many new 4K UHD players (it appears SONY players seem especially susceptible) is literally "seeing/reading" the INVISIBLE "non stick" film that coats EVERY UHD 4K, AND Blu-ray disk that is applied during the manufacturing process that is intended to keep the disks from sticking to each other while they are stacked on top of each other before they are individually packaged for sale, and is trying to "correct these 'errors' as the disk is playing."

Consequently, the UHD 4K players ability to keep up with correcting the supposed "errors" on the 4K UHD, or Blu-ray disk eventually fails and causes the player to "freeze"/lock up.

Older, non UHD Blu-ray players don't appear to have this problem because they don't "see" this invisible film.

The simple solution is this: *Note this procedure must be done to brand new 4K disks, as well as all of the HD and 4K UHD disks in your library BEFORE you play them the FIRST TIME on your 4K UHD player.

Carefully remove the disk from its case, and place the disk under under running warm water.

Lightly coat the disk with mild dish washing liquid (I use Dawn) on BOTH SIDES and wash the disk under warm running water (I lightly rub the soap from the center outwards).

Turn the disk over and repeat.

Thoroughly rinse the entire disk on both sides, making sure the dishwashing liquid is completely removed.

Place the washed and rinsed disk between a soft towel and pat dry. *Note: As an additional step, I take the dry disk, carefully hold it between my fingers and lightly move it up and down to remove any possible residual water.

Place the washed and dried disk in the player and push "Play".

Because the invisible (to the naked eye) film has been washed away, the player no longer "sees/reads" it as an "error" and the "error correction" protection software no longer gags and freezes after it can't keep up with the innumerable number of perceived errors.

I have religiously followed this procedure BEFORE playing any new or existing 4K, UHD or Blu-ray in my library for the FIRST TIME.

Since following this above process I have only had one disk freeze/lock up my SONY X1000ES. After rewashing the disk, there was no longer a problem and the disk has played flawlessly ever since.

*Note: You only need to thoroughly wash each disk ONCE/ONE TIME, BEFORE you play it for the FIRST TIME because you have permanently removed the invisible, non-stick coating that was left on the disk during the manufacturing process to keep it from sticking to other disks.

I hope the above advice proves helpful; it has certainly worked for us and now our SONY X1000ES plays everything we put in it without a problem.

Shortly thereafter, I put a USB in the front port......16GB at first, but not a long one, and have since replaced that with a 64GB low profile.......and have not had one picture freeze on any discs I have watched. I have not watched any of the original discs that froze, but I assume the problem is solved. I believe I read about this suggestion somewhere on this forum.



Try a USB and see if it helps.......incidentally, my player is not connected to the internet and I only use it for UHD discs.....

You don't need to use an unsightly USB sticking out of the front of the player to solve the "freezing/lock up" problem; This is the cure for the "freezing problem".

A while back, someone posted a link to an article that detailed the issue/problem and the solution.

The gist of the article was this: the lazer and error correction software on many new 4K UHD players (it appears SONY players seem especially susceptible) is literally "seeing/reading" the INVISIBLE "non stick" film that coats EVERY UHD 4K, AND Blu-ray disk that is applied during the manufacturing process that is intended to keep the disks from sticking to each other while they are stacked on top of each other before they are individually packaged for sale, and is trying to "correct these 'errors' as the disk is playing."

Consequently, the UHD 4K players ability to keep up with correcting the supposed "errors" on the 4K UHD, or Blu-ray disk eventually fails and causes the player to "freeze"/lock up.

Older, non UHD Blu-ray players don't appear to have this problem because they don't "see" this invisible film.

The simple solution is this: *Note this procedure must be done to brand new 4K disks, as well as all of the HD and 4K UHD disks in your library BEFORE you play them the FIRST TIME on your 4K UHD player.

Carefully remove the disk from its case, and place the disk under under running warm water.

Lightly coat the disk with mild dish washing liquid (I use Dawn) on BOTH SIDES and wash the disk under warm running water (I lightly rub the soap from the center outwards).

Turn the disk over and repeat.

Thoroughly rinse the entire disk on both sides, making sure the dishwashing liquid is completely removed.

Place the washed and rinsed disk between a soft towel and pat dry. *Note: As an additional step, I take the dry disk, carefully hold it between my fingers and lightly move it up and down to remove any possible residual water.

Place the washed and dried disk in the player and push "Play".

Because the invisible (to the naked eye) film has been washed away, the player no longer "sees/reads" it as an "error" and the "error correction" protection software no longer gags and freezes after it can't keep up with the innumerable number of perceived errors.

I have religiously followed this procedure BEFORE playing any new or existing 4K, UHD or Blu-ray in my library for the FIRST TIME.

Since following this above process I have only had one disk freeze/lock up my SONY X1000ES. After rewashing the disk, there was no longer a problem and the disk has played flawlessly ever since.

*Note: You only need to thoroughly wash each disk ONCE/ONE TIME, BEFORE you play it for the FIRST TIME because you have permanently removed the invisible, non-stick coating that was left on the disk during the manufacturing process to keep it from sticking to other disks.
