Default Sony S6700 Recommended Settings

Hello,
I am a new owner of the Sony BDP-S6700 and I have a couple questions with the settings.

1. For the 4K Output, there is Auto 1, Auto 2, and off. Which one would be the one to choose when the player is connected to a Samsung 4K TV? I've heard to choose Auto1 for Sony TV's, but I am getting mixed opinions on it.
2. Should SBM (Super Bit Mapping) be turned on or off? I haven't seen anyone ask this either.
3. Should HDMI Deep Color Output be kept on or turned off? I have heard to turn it off because Blu-rays do not support it, but let me know.

Thanks!
Dan

i also need the answer to question 1, i have a philips tv and see no difference between auto 1 or 2. i read the owners manual many times but i really don't understand the answer.

A majority of the time, people have said that Auto 1 is meant for Sony TV's, and I have not really noticed any difference either.

I have a s6700 and think its a great bd player. I have a sony x930d but think its a little messed up because when i put it on enhanced hdmi setting it messes up the
Sdr picture quality so i have to leave it on standard. My setting is 4k output off as i think it looks better that i leave my tv to do the upscaling instead. Sbm i left it on and deep color output i left it at 10 bit but i think auto would be just fine for you. It also depends whats your resolution. I left mine on original resolution.

i would never turn my 4k setting off, i chose that player because of 4k upscale, im watching an sd movie now and it looks great.

I have my resolution set to "auto" because that is what people have said to have it on. I have heard Auto 1 has the TV upscale while Auto 2 has the player upscale but there really isn't any difference, but I wish to know which one is the one to have on.

According to the manual, auto 1 is to be used for Sony tvs and auto 2 for all other tvs, as mentioned above.

If you have alot of dvds then you can leave it on auto 2 because you have a samsung tv, honestly though to me it looks better with it off but that could be just me.

That's what I figured, but I just needed confirmation. Thank you!

Hi,

I am wondering if anyone has experienced intermittent blackouts on their bdpS6700 player? happens 15-25 minutes when watching a blu-ray. No picture but sound is there. blackout happens for about 4-5 seconds.

I have tried changing to high speed hdmi cables but nothing works. By the way, my connection is as such : BD player > AMP > TV.

Any advise is appreciated! thanks.
