I've had my Sony UBP-X800 for a few months now and it's generally going well. I've still not entirely solved a few issues. The original issue I had was that my current amplifier (Cambridge Audio SR-20, which I really like) has no HDMI input and so I now run a single coax from the Sony to my amplifier for audio discs (CDs, SACDs and blu ray audio discs) and the sound is good. There is something that I would like more help with though; that is, I have the Sony set up following diagram 'c' on page 12 (http://docs.sony.com/release//Manual_4687309111.pdf) in the manual but this only works for audio discs. If I put in a blu ray, the audio passes through the TV (presumably though the HDMI from the Sony blu ray player to my TV), not through the coax output. This means that I cannot run the audio out from my Sky Q box to my amplifier (which does work on its own), but must run the audio from the TV to the amplifier—otherwise I have no audio from the Sony blu ray player to my amplifier. Running the audio out from the TV to my amplifier 'works' as it were, but my ears tell me that the audio that runs through the TV is lower quality. For example, if I put in an audio disc and switch between the coax out from the Sony (channel three) and the audio out from the tv (channel one) I can hear that the coax out from the Sony blu ray player is better than the audio that passes through the TV. Any ideas?

Many thanks!

Just purchased this player and could use some help with setup.

I have a onkyo tx-nr676 connected to benQ ht2550 4k projector.. All my video sources run through the onkyo then to the projector. I know this unit has two separate hdmi for audio and video. Would I be okay connecting this bluray to the my receiver only, for audio/video?

Of course... why wouldn't you? Your receiver appears to be fully HDCP 2.2 4K HDR capable...

My tv does not support Dolby Vision. Should I purchase the X800 than waiting for the X800M2 to arrive later this year?

If your TV doesn't support DV, then the DV capability on a BD-Player is useless. Of course, if you plan to upgrade your TV in the near future it would make sense to wait for the X800M2 to be future proof.


I bought my X800 less than a year ago, a haven't used it 10 times yet. Knowing the X800M2 will be coming I would have held off.

Is the X800 worth the upgrade from S6700, in terms of video picture quality only ? Does it do any video processing better than the S6700 - regardless of source - dvd, bd, netflix, media files ?
Does it have the same video chip as the S6700 or a better/newer one ?
Thanks.

I don't know specific answers to your questions on video chip and etc but I don't believe that you can really compare the 2. The S6700 is not a true 4K Blu-ray player in that it can't play UHD (4K) Blu-ray discs. It just has the capability to upscale non UHD (4K) media. If you are wanting to play UHD (4K) media, then the X800 is the better choice. If your TV supports Dolby Vision then the X700 would be the better choice.

The X700 is only a better choice if you like manually turning Dolby Vision on and off. It doesn't automatically switch between DV, HDR10, and SDR like all other Dolby Vision players do.

I'm hoping the new SOny X800M2 isn't crippled for DV usage like the X700 is.

Sony UBP-X800

I bought sony ubp-x800 and I tested player with a few MKV movies played in usb port (from SSD and HDD). 1080p movie works great, except quality of subtitles was bad. But the worts thing is that player didn't open / load any 4K MKV movie, from both hard drives. I don't now what to and I am pretty sure that this is failure and it is not ok. Am I correct.

Thank you

Also the X800 can play DSD music disks, loads faster, and is quieter than the S6700 (which I came from). I'm pretty sure the chip is faster so should do better with processing though I just do straight passthrough on mine and let my TV do any upscaling. Can't speak to the X700 but I believe it's more like the S6700 upgraded to play UHD disks (plus it does DV, the one thing X800 can't do).

There you go... you made it sound so drastic that none of your 4Ks didnt work and its a failure of some kind.
What you're trying to do is play Atmos audio track #1 . Which you can't on an mkv file with this player.
So the next time you get the error or a black screen... just press the audio button on the remote and it'll change to audio track 2, the AC3 and ur file will play np. This player is capable of playing all types of files and formats, they just need to be in the right format or container.

Ths s6700 and x700 can also play SACDs with DSD audio.
But the X800 can also play DVD-A music discs.

Thank you so much...It really works.

Now I have another question about subtitles. When I play mkv file with external subtitles (.srt), both saved on usb, player plays very bold subtitles in the lower black bar and they aren't in so good quality as I would like. Do you have any suggestion, what can I do here?

Glad it worked.
Also, 90% of us complain about the big bold blinding subtitles on the x800 and there's really no options to fix that. Another thing to note that this player only/maybe mostly recognizes .Srt files and not PGS subtitles.

Yup, IME.. the Sony players do not work with PGS (graphic) type subtitles. When subtitles are needed for my upstairs family streaming needs, I will just use Handbrake and burn them into the video file.

They do.
The trick is again in the container.
MKV - SRT subs only (when muxed)
M2TS - PGS subs only (muxed). Haven’t tried external SRTs.

In reality, X700 is much more advanced and more powerful than X800, except for build quality. And some missing features (bluetooth, dvd-a playback, cheaper drive).

And 5Ghz wifi is also missing from the x700. WHich I've found is important with my x800. Since it allows me to get over 130Mb/s throughput. High bitrate UHD files that choke on the Sony wired 100Mb/s connection have no problem playing back on it's 5Ghz wifi connection.

Yes, aside from build quality and feature set, the 700 is the superior machine

Correct. How could I measure the network throughput on my X700?
I tried the wifi connection as well to overcome uhd file hiccups, but that switch made no difference for me.
How’d I go about measuring the real network throughput my X700 achieves?

You can also muxed SUB/IDX (VobSub) to MKV using better font type/size, since default SRT font size is too big.

BDSup2Sub - convert PGS to SUB/IDX
PunkGraphicStream - ASS/AAS to SUP

Validation, hah? You stated "several" discs stuttered during playback. To validate or justify to Sony duplicate the same thing. Play "several" or possibly the same 4k discs that stuttered. Believe or not that's called evidence. If that is the same situation, then you have a strong case against Sony. Sony may play tough, therefore you have to counter with your best punch, got it?
Good luck

Good luck

RPO is notorious for stuttering. Have you tried the trick of gently washing UHD disks with dish soap and water before using in the x800. Several members have reported success with this, it seems UHD players are more sensitive to dirty disks, maybe because the density of information is so much more than HD disks.


I've been lucky with my x800, bought it when the first price drop happened and have had only one disk fail.

Sony X800 4K blu-ray player/Dish Hopper3

I've been lucky with my x800, bought it when the first price drop happened and have had only one disk fail.
Mr. Cheddarhead:
Sir, you missed my point, twice I must state. Sir, I was born at night, not last night. Suffice to say, the disc washing method is older than you and I together. That is neither a joke nor an exaggeration. I have used dish washing detergent from LPs, CDs, laserdiscs, DVDs, blu-ray DVDs, 4k DVDs and my hair. Did I miss anything? Oh yeah, my car tires I don't claim to be perfect
One more thing, I have the X-700 since last May. I do not have any issues to report including the RPO playback(2X).

Don't know how old you are but since my music days date to Quadraphonic with open reel, I'm pretty sure I am older than the technique of using dish washing soap to clean an optical disk.


Sorry if I missed where you stated that you had taken the simple measure of making sure your disks were clean. Just trying to help but if you insist on copping an attitude there isn't much that can be done for you.

Current system:
Sony 75X900e/Sony HT-NT5 sound bar with SR-5 rear speakers
Sony X800 4K blu-ray player/Dish Hopper3
Roku 4 Premier/'Sony PS-4

SIR:
I do NOT have any attitudes, thank you. I was making a point which you obviously have misconstrued. We are adults here and hypersensitivity for the most part must be overlooked. Read my post very carefully again, shall you? I included LPs. Have you heard of the twelve-inch vinyl disc called Long Playing? They were in existence way long(no pun intended) before the quadraphonic eight track tapes and reel to reel tapes. I had a "quad" receiver with a "quad" 8-track tape deck. BTW I still have at least five quadraphonic LPs. Have you heard of them as well? I know my way around Home Theater.

Good day
