To tell you the truth guys I dont know if the player really needs a firmware update. My player has taken every disc I have thrown at it and played very well. I know they have loaded more new apps on it like Revision 3 which I always watch.

Remember when people bought Blu-ray players, to play Blu-ray discs?

I don't need the apps, I will never use them and besides I have them on my XBOX 360, don't need more of the same. I just want a solid player to replace my BDP350 because it's on it's last legs.

I use my S570 for Blu's and Netflix. My tv has plenty of apps as does my Blu ray player so I am set in that dept. The S570 is a very solid Blu ray player. One of Sonys best in my book.

Good to know I'm not the only one.
I only use my bluray player to play bluray discs.
But I'm always curious about firmware updates because I dont want to pop in a diac one day and have it not play. I went through that shit with my bdp-550. I remember YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN not playing until some update two weeks after release date (it wouldn't launch from the main menu. Would stick... until the update).
I hope those phuckin days are over.

I have a problem with the audio on Finding Nemo dropping out at 5:25 every time. I saw the post about the Total Recall drop out and tried the fix there of setting HDMI audio out to PCM and that seemed to solve the problem. I tried the disc in the PS3 connected to the same receiver and also an older Sony BDP-S350 and didn't have a problem with either one. Wondering if anyone else has encountered the same issue with Nemo?

Sadly mine died last night but it was a great player for 3 years. Now onto a new model but question is which one to settle on. My taxes come the first or second week of next month so I am going to be doing alot of reading up on reviews in the next 2 weeks. RIP to my BDP S570 I will miss it.

Aaahhh man, I'm sincerely sorry to hear that... what happened to it? I LOVE my 570 and I've had mine for almost 3 years too. I think I got it around July 2010. Always thought it was a very fast player; most movies load in seconds.

Good luck on your quest for a new player. I'm quite curious as to what player you go for as I've read several of your posts in the past on this thread.

I went with the S590 Red Pill. Excellent player and couldnt be more happier. The only difference between the 2 players is is load time. The S570 was just a tad quicker when loading Blu's and I forgot the S590 has Vudu streaming which the S570 didnt. Otherwise I love my new player and am glad I got it.

I'm not sure if this is the right thread for this. I have the Costco version of this player, the BDP-BX57 and it's been giving me a problem for awhile now I thought I should finally ask for help on.

Sometimes, often, when I load up a movie, the overlaying menus just wont appear. I can see the background image or movie playing on the menu screen, but the over lay with "Play" "setup" and so on just isn't there. Usually if I stop a disc completely and then try again, it will work, but sometimes it even takes a few tries.

On Disney movies, it will also do this during the previews at the start of a disc. The menu that says "start movie, next preview, menus" will often not pop up."

When either of these things happen, pressing my menu or pop up menu button does not do anything.

I've had the player a few years now, so I don't know if this is a sign it's dying or what.

Anything I can do?

I can't say I have any information on the problem but can chime in that I have had that happen a few times with The Avengers only. It's very odd. And mine is an S570, not the Costco version.

I phuckin' love my BDP-S570, but I hate the fact that I have to "worry if it's going to live" all the time.

Its like every week I wake up; "I hope my player works today"

I mean, what happened to the days when electronics lasted?

My first DVD player still works to this day!!
My first 5.1 receiver still works! I no longer use it because its outdated... but thats besides the point.

Blu-ray is only six years old and I'm on my third Blu-ray player! WTF!?
And I'm on my third Harmon Kardon receiver!

and I am anal; I take extreme care of my stuff!

Why doesnt shit last?

Does anyone know what I might be able to do about my menus not appearing? It not only does that, but sometimes, discs just wont load. The player gets stuck. This seems to happen after a disc has been put in the player and I turn it off due to not finishing what I was watching. When I turn it back on to finish the disc, it has problems loading it.

If it's out if warranty, then it sounds like its no longer a correctly working machine

Default Firmware??

So what's the consensus here? It's been almost two years since the last firmware update. Does anyone think we'll ever see another update released?

I'm not having any problems with my player, but it would be great if Total Recall played without the audio dropouts. Sure, I've done the 'workaround' to watch it, but a true fix would be nice.

I'm guessing no, Sony has moved on to newer models and doesn't really care. I was hoping for a Total Recall fix as well, but I really don't think it will happen.

I picked up the Sony S790 a week ago and have only been able to view a few 3D movies Cars2 with familly and Texas Chainsaw 3D alone .

Im curious I have some older DVD's that I enjoy for my own reasons movies like Eddie and The Cruisers, the Car, Race With the Devil and a couple other cult type films, so I have read that this sony has a great upscaler do I need to go into settings and turn anything on? also how great is that feature I dont really think its that big a deal but if there is something a piece of equipement can do I want it to do it.

Please pass on any info on this thanks

Default New Firmware!

FINALLY!!!

Released 10-22-13: M04.R.788

Might not be in the market after all to buy a new BD player! I was sure Sony was done releasing updates for this player, hence my desire to upgrade. Can't wait to try Total Recall 2012 and hope this 'fixes' it!
