        3d glasses   (6 Answers)

          Answer

          I think this depends on your tv. To state the obvious, the tv has to be 3D capable, you need an HDMI that is hi-speed, and the tv will dictate what type of 3D glasses you use. My LG tv has a couple of 3D options, so we just put on our glasses and scroll through the selections until the picture jumps out. You will know when you found the right selection!

            This player cannot play UHD/4k discs. It's a different format entirely and requires a dedicated UHD/4K Blu-ray to play them. This player will only upscale a standard Blu-ray to UHD/4k resolution, but then again your 4K TV is doing the same thing.

            What is the difference between this model (BDPS6500) and the BDPS7200?   (5 Answers)

            I recently bought a Sony 4K TV and was looking for a good Blu-ray player to pair with it. Is there any difference between the two models (6500 vs 7200) besides audio options? They seem similar but terminology surrounding the 4K upscaling is slightly different between the two. The 7200 model says it requires a 4K display, the 6500 does not say this. This is what the 7200 says: Ultra HD upscaling Delivers enhanced HD sports, TV shows, movies and even YouTube clips and smartphone videos upconverted to near-4K quality (requires a 4K display). This is what the 6500 says: 4K upscaling Allows you to upconvert media for immersive viewing. It sounds the same but I'd like to know...

              Answer

              I DID ALOT OF RESEARCH, This is what I THINK is true, Up conversion on the 7200 means converting a USB or other signal to a HDMI signal. which may not be any better. Upscaling on the 6500 means up scaling the display to 1080i 1080p, or near 4K if your TV can display it. I have a Sharp Aquas Q+ TV which is not true 4K but close, with a SONY 6500 and it does what it says it will and more. Very impressed !

                Answer

                No, your blu ray player does not need to be a smart player if you already own a smart tv. "Smart TVs" is a term that has come to denote any tv that can be connected to the Internet to access streaming media services and that can run entertainment apps, such as on-demand video-rental services, Internet music stations and web browsers. If your smart tv can already do all of these things, there is no need for a smart blu ray player, save yourself a few dollars. I'm sure you can find one with 4K up scaling and 3D capabilities.

                  DVD seems to be interlaced quite badly. BR looks crystal clear.   (3 Answers)

                  Connected to a 4k 65 inch ("Element" bought from Costco). Blu ray movies are crystal clear - I can stand a foot away from the screen and it's that clear. While I don't expect a good DVD to be like that, if 24P is set for DVD, the screen shows (when click on DISPLAY button) 4k/24p and the picture is badly interlaced. If the 24P for DVD is set to off, it doesn't happen, and the display shows just 1080p and the picture looks decent enough. Am just wondering if it's supposed to upscale a regular DVD to 4k, too, in this manner. Would love to hear from a Sony rep.

                    DVD isn't made to be watched in 4K. Better not to use for this if you want clear picture. A DVD can be up-converted to 1080i /p & will look better. Only Blu Ray should be watched in 4K to maximize picture quality. Hope this helps. Sorry not a Sony rep but definitely an electronics junkie in a good way.
