after messing around with both the player as well as the 4K TV I must say, I'm blown away by the 4K upscaling. It takes some tinkering with both the player and the TV to get the settings and picture quality right but when it's set up correctly the imagine is fantastic to my eyes

For the record, the SR4KP1 will not play blu ray discs over the SD output. A crudely blocked message reading "CPS-Limited-Analog" appears on the screen, as the sound from the disc menu plays in the background. It will, for what it's worth, play DVDs in SD.

My SR4KP1 was delivered last night and I hooked it up--I was surprised how easy it was to access the service menu to change the bd region. Before doing that I even brazenly hooked it up to my network to search for a firmware update--there was none and the region changing capability is still active. I'm also surprised how light the player is, but there is a slight but still audible whirring sound while disc playback occurs and the TV volume is low (which I'm guessing is due to the cheaper build quality). Still, the SR4KP1 is a worthy replacement for my aging, region hacked Insignia.

Also, I went to the Seiki website to register the player and Seiki doesn't even have a category for bd players, only TVs and soundbars. Weird.

So finally had a chance to sit down and watch a couple of full films this weekend on the SR4KP1. As I posted earlier, the region change was super simple. As for wacthing the blu-rays, smooth as could be. No issues whatsoever. I watched 2 Eureka! Masters of Cinema films, and they both played perfectly.

The SR4KP1 seems to be a great player for a pretty darn good price!

Finally received my first ever Region B title from amazon.de which is "Grindhouse". I also have "Re-Animator/Bride of Re-Animator" German steel book on the way. So after owning the SR4KP1 for about a month I hooked it up today. I followed the directions in the OP and it worked flawlessly. The player itself is decent enough for me at the price point I paid. I'll mess around with the settings over the next few days until I find a setting I'm completely happy with. For anyone interested in a multi-region player for a fair amount of money, you can't go wrong with this Seiki.

This truly is a wonderful player. I've seen about 3 Region B locked titles and they all played wonderfully

Love this player (the SR4KP1), but I do have one question about it. I bought a second unit for my parents' setup because their old player died, and I was so pleased with the one I already had.

Their surround receiver has optical and coax audio inputs. The old player they had used an optical cable, and everything worked fine. For this player, I had to use a coax cable instead. The problem is when I connect the player to their receiver via the coax cable, I only get an option for 2.0 sound in the Seiki config menu.

Is there something I can configure on the Seiki to enable 5.1? Do I need to switch something on the receiver itself so that it recognizes 5.1 as a possibility? I've been accessing the menu without a disc in the player, so there is no sound to play back while I am setting it up, I don't know if that makes a difference. There is the test tone of course but only in the 2 speakers + sub config.

If it matters, the receiver is a Denon AVR 1804 that supports Dolby 5.1 as well as DTS. No HDMI, which might be the real problem here. The TV itself has HDMI inputs, so maybe it would be possible to pass the audio through the TV out to the receiver? It's a Pioneer Elite Pro-800 HDI.

Any help would be very much appreciated!

I don't suppose this player is capable of 3D in addition to 4K upconversion? I would guess no, as the description makes no mention of it.

I'm not into the 3D thing hince I have only have a 2D TV so I can't say 110% but when I was going through the setup I saw nothing related to 3D. Also the manual makes no mention of 3D. I'm also unsure of the quality of the 4k upconversion. I would imagine it is acceptable. I bought this for the 1080p bluray regions A,B & C capabilities. If that interests you then it is a quality item to consider.
I have however encountered a slight annoyance with it. If I'm watching a bluray (haven't played a DVD yet) and I rewind (I'm constantly noticing mistakes and I rewind movies a lot to confirm the findings) and hit play, sometimes instead of the audio track playing I get an awful static noise. I have to switch to another audio option on the disc and then switch it back. It has happened 3 times now. This is my 3rd bluray player and 2nd hooked up to this receiver and I've never experienced this before so I will assume it is my player. Its only a big deal to me when I have my system cranked. Don't let this issue of mine sway anyone away from purchasing.

As far as I am aware this is the only 4K upconversion Blu-ray player on the market that does not support 3-D. None of the Seiki flat panels support 3-D, therefore the marketing and engineers must have decided to leave that feature off.

Ok, thank you!

I have a bunch of 3D discs, and a 3D-capable TV, but none of my players have been 3D-capable. I've actually never been interested in it at all. Might have been a nice bonus to have this capability, but to your point, I'm also picking up the Seiki for its region options

The 4k upconversion seems to get plenty of positive feedback so I'm definitely excited to give this player a try.

In case anyone is curious, this player definitely doesn't do 3D

I just picked one up and unboxed. Took a little tweaking with the settings, but everything works pretty well. Popped in Jurassic Park 3D disc, and no 3D capability detected. Regular disc works great, as does the region B disc I used to test.
