      Waiting for software upgrade.

      By Jeff

      Comments about Onkyo BD-SP809 Blu-ray Disc Player:

      There are some Fixed problems with the Blu Ray players built after 2011. Sony, Panasonic and Yamaha have no setting so 3Dcmovies can be played in the original aspect ratio filmed. In order to get the true 2:35-1 or 2:40-1 for ANY tv size 4:3 or 16:9 , you must choose the 4:3 LETTERBOX. Any other setting will give you no or the thinner BLACL bars (usually 1:85 to 1 or 1:78-1 , the latter being equal to 16:9 HD TVs. I know this is true cause I had to return thes 3 brands because of this problem. The software issue with the Onkyo SP809 is that it's FIXED SET ON 16:9 WIDE, which makes movies filmed in 2:35-1 or. 2:40-1 come out as the stretched version of 1:85-1. The films filmed in 1:85-1 comes out in FULL SCREEN. A firmware upgrade just came out in May and is available at www.onkyo.com. I've spoken with David Williams at the N.J site and Chris at thecTennesse site and have very helpful. Now the information is that this upgrade says nothing about the size ratio issue, but does not necessarily mean it won't be included. This is June the 6th and should have my hands in the flash USB flash druve upgrade. I sure hope it works because I don't want to return it. The jack panel has 2-HDMI'S, one component, one coaxial, and composite and analog audio jacks.. Has a great look, large and just looks great.

        Comments about Onkyo BD-SP809 Blu-ray Disc Player:

        I know this DVD player didn't have the top reviews like others, but I like how Onkyo works with each other and I wanted the THX certification. This DVD player is Incredible for DVD playback, it makes our Sony and 1st Gen. Onkyo Blu-Ray players look like regular DVD players. The Marvell's Qdeo processing is something to definitely see for yourself. I agree the Internet part of this player (Netflix, streaming, hullo, and etc.) is not great, But I didn't buy it for that, I would suggest Apple TV. The chassy is built solid, looks like a matched set with my Onkyo Reciver. I have had it a month now, and we are still amazed how great it makes our movies look!

        Comments about Onkyo BD-SP809 Blu-ray Disc Player:

        I use this blue ray player as my main movie player in my home theather and boy can you tell a difference right away. The resolution of this player blows away anything else I have owned up to this point. The sound quality is unmatched and pushes the THX sound right thru my receiver without skipping a beat. The only thing is I wish it had some kind of WIFI but, but I bought for what it was an awesome blue ray player. I would recommend it to anyone looking at blue ray players at this price range. If you are looking below this price range, I urge you to reconsider. I would buy it again.

            This player is my primary optical disc and content streamer for my setup. While it plays blu-ray discs just fine, its real cache is as an excellent DVD player with good upscaling qualities, something you don't see in most blu-ray players. That to me is worth the premium. Is DLNA compliant and has apps for most movie streaming (Netflix, VUDU, Film Fresh.)

            I bought this to compliment my TX-NR809 and must say I am extremely happy with it, however let me say that for this price I expected a few more features like Wi-Fi (need UWF-1) and compatibility with some video formats (MKV). The USB port cannot handle external USB drives and BD-Live can only be accessed when and external USB flash is inserted. However when a Blu-ray is inserted then the quality behind this player starts to shine. Audio and video are amazing and the player does not disappoint. Combined with the TX-NR809 it looks great as well. Fortunately my Samsung Smart TV makes up for the mediocre online features.
