A couple questions for anyone who owns this. I have a Samsung LED smart TV. Will the 4K upscaling do anything for my picture quality? Also, does this blu-ray player have the HBOGO app?

4K QUAD HD upscaling will not work at all for 1080P displays including the 1080P Samsung LED smart TV’s. If you own a 4K QUAD HD Samsung LED smart TV then the 4K upscaling feature will work but the upscaling quality might be lower quality compared to the 4K scaling in the Samsung 4K displays. The Sony BDP-S790 will upscale to 1080P for those that do not own a 4K QUAD HD display yet.

I put it down to Sony just cutting costs and sourcing cheaper parts. It's a shame because I think they are often superb players but the build quality now is bordering on budget territory.
Since posting this, I have taken the player back to multiregionmagic in Peterborough and they tested it. It was determined that the disc drive was indeed faulty and a new one was installed there and then. Top service from them really. The new drive is now much much quieter and I am much happier with the player now. Its still not as quiet as previous players (and previous Sony's) but its not like having a propeller engine in the room now.

Just got one of these on Saturday to replace a Samjunk BD-F7500 that was defective and Samshit sent it back to me after I'd sent it in for repair and said they couldn't find any problems. I washed my hands of it and got BDP-S790 and I've been very pleased with it. It has a lot more video settings I can tweek and play with. It joins 3 other Sony bluray players in my stable.

Can the 790 be configured in such a way that it doesn't output audio over HDMI?

Found the solution myself: The AV Seperation Output Mode setting can split video and audio between the two HDMI outs.

Just ordered the last one on Amazon. I'm looking forward to seeing if there is an upgrade in video quality running this directly to the projector over the PS3. I want to try the 3d conversion out. I've read that it is no big deal but it will be nice to see it for myself. I also like that Sony supports SACD. I sampled some tracks on HDtracks recently and was pretty impressed at the upgrade in quality.
