Re: Sherwood BDP-5004 Multi-Region BD Player

Just a heads up: Members on other forums are reporting that the new firmware update for the Momitsu 899 and its clones (including the Sherwood) DISABLES REGION-SWITCHING CAPABILITIES!

Re: Region-Free BD Player: Momitsu BDP-899?

The exact same codes as the Momitsu. Which, I might add, is no slouch in the upconverting department. I can see no difference between the 899 and my Oppo 983 for SD DVD (PAL or NTSC).

re: (DEAD) 50% of Criterion @ Barnes & Noble - 7/14

Was this out of stock? I just received my copy of Made In USA, along with 2 or 3 Things I Know About Her, from BN yesterday.

Re: Region-Free BD Player: Momitsu BDP-899?

Momitsu has a U.S. office in California as well and were very responsive to my concerns, since my first unit also had problems.

Re: Region-Free BD Player: Momitsu BDP-899?

I finally had the chance in the last couple of days to test the SD upconversion of the Momitsu vs. the Oppo 983. I used a number of discs, but the one that is most telling is my R2 German copy of My...

Re: Region-Free BD Player: Momitsu BDP-899?

I think he meant a modded Panasonic. The Panny will not play PAL extras on import BDs however, unless you have a PAL-capable display (no PAL->NTSC converter). Momitsu has been around for many years...

Re: Region-Free BD Player: Momitsu BDP-899?

I won't have a chance to perform any critical analysis this week (one son going to China, the other graduating). But by this weekend, I intend to A-B it against my Oppo 983 for SD. I already know...

Re: Region-Free BD Player: Momitsu BDP-899?

HKFlix. $349 + shipping. They offer to match any price, not that I've seen it lower.

Re: Region-Free BD Player: Momitsu BDP-899?

Oh, I will also post here as well. I just owe Dr. A since he was very helpful in my decision to purchase the player.

Re: Region-Free BD Player: Momitsu BDP-899?

Thanks, I will. I will also PM you on the other forum with my review of the Momitsu in a couple of weeks, after I put it through its paces a bit more.

Re: Region-Free BD Player: Momitsu BDP-899?

I've only tried a PAL copy of Fistful of Dollars and it looked very good. I'm using an Oppo 983 for my multi-region SD DVD, but based on what I saw, I would not be adverse to using the Momitsu...

Re: Region-Free BD Player: Momitsu BDP-899?

I found that to be the case as well. In addition, PAL extras on an import BD also play in their correct AR, which is great! A similar setting to Oppo's WS/Auto (I think that's what it's called). ...

Re: Region-Free BD Player: Momitsu BDP-899?

Tried the unplugging/plugging many times. Thought that would do it, but it didn't. Just curious, what is your menu setting for resolution, HDMI Auto or 1080P? When I first got the player, it...

Re: Region-Free BD Player: Momitsu BDP-899?

I just received mine late yesterday afternoon. The good: BDs looked stunning (only had a chance to try 2 or 3), load times pretty quick. The bad: This morning I popped a R2 PAL SD-DVD of La Dolce...

I'll add my endorsement as well! I really loved this movie, especially Bruno Ganz' performance.

Are you sure? It doesn't look the Sigmatek 1000 I've seen on various web sites.

Re: Netflix raises price of Blu-ray rentals...again! (April 09)

I'll be dropping Netflix altogether, after several years. This is uncalled for, and a slap in the face to its long-time customers!

Re: Il Divo (Paolo Sorrentino)

Pro-B,

Is the Italian version of Gomorra BD discontinued, since it seems to be disappearing from online retailers? I ask because I plan to pick it up in Florence next month and would like an idea...
