My BDP-9100, it’s about time

Well, it has been quite some time since my first post on this blog, and I did promise to let you know my thoughts on my BDP-9100 blu-ray player. Now, I’m not one of those that can actually see differences in the picture quality from different devices, so I’m not able to tell you whether or not the image quality of the BDP-9100 is comparable to any other player, and certainly not if it’s any better. What I can tell you however, is that the link-feature between my Philips Cinema 21:9 and the BDP-9100 is absolutely great. And in my opinion, far better than what I had before, which was a Panasonic TH 50PZ800 and my Panasonic DMP-BD50. Everything is intuitive while using the remote that came with the TV, and even subtitle adjustments are well integrated. No troubles at all.

If I were to say anything negative with this setup, it has to be that subtitle adjustments aren’t saved. So, if you adjust the subtitles while playing one movie, and you then play another movie that needs adjustments – well, you’ll have to adjust subtitles for that particular movie aswell. It bugs me, because the TV is intelligent enough to detect subtitles and adjust the ratio and placement of the image accordingly, but wouldn’t it just be a nice feature if the TV, theough the link, could tell the BDP-9100 to adjust subtitles for a complete 21:9  experience?.. Also note that in 21:9 mode, subtitle handling only considers subtitles located at the bottom, but quite a few titles often have subtitles placed at the top.
