In my experience, there is no

In my experience, there is no difference in blu ray picture quality between different blu ray players, as long as no artificial processing is employed by the player. Just bear in mind that PS4 may emit fan noise (like the PS3).

When using PS4, select Linear

When using PS4, select Linear PCM or LPCM which is bit by bit same as Dolby True HD. LPCM is the studio master which is exactly the same as, or superior to Dolby True HD.

For blu ray picture and

For blu ray picture and bitstream audio, will be the same. DVD upscaling can be different.

The PS4 reportedly had issues

The PS4 reportedly had trouble deinterlacing 1080i content and some DVD upscaling problems, I think these issues have been resolved now.

Video wise there might not be much difference between the PS4 qand the dedicated sony BD player. Sound wise however if you have an AV reciever I would set the PS4 to output bitstream and let the AVR decode the audio as it will do a better job than the PS4. That is certainly the case with the PS3 anyway.

I have noticed quite a big difference between players piture wise. The pic from my LX71 is better/cleaner than the LX70 I also have. I have the chance to compare many players at old job. The cheaper ones were never quite as good.

Hi all,

Hi all,

I went for the Sony Bluray player

it seems good easy to handle.

I got the Sony STR 1050 recevier and wanted to know if you can use one remote for both?

If Songpal app will work on this bluray player as i could not get it to work

screen mirroing etc works well

 

Thank you guys for the advice

Hi there. Yes because they are both Sony you should be able to use all th buttons that have the same function. To control the BD player via the AVR remote you may need to select BD then slelect Receiver again to go back to controling the AMP.

Some BD functions will only be accessable from the BD remote though.
