Review Summary

The Sony DVP NS77H/S is a single-disc, mainstream DVD player. This DVD player is equipped with a progressive scanning feature, capable of delivering higher-quality video images to compatible televisions. Capable of playing multiple types of recordable and rewritable discs, this player can handle better than most DVD players. It is quite slim, 1.7 in. Like most other DVD players, it includes JPEG playback, which allows you to view digital photos that are stored on a CD on your television. Considering its relatively inexpensive price, this DVD player includes great features. It has HDMI interface and upconversion up to 1080p. It features optical and coaxial digital audio outs, composite video, component (480i/480p) video and S-Video outs. It can play all recordable formats, including CD-R, CD-RW, DVD-R/RW, DVD+R/RW, MP3 and JPEG. The player is accompanied by a multibrand remote control. Sony advertises such items as Precision Drive 3 error correction circuitry and Precision Cinema Progressive Technology-2.Comments of one user are that this Sony player produces pleasing colors and sharp video overall, perhaps even too sharp, which he finds a bit unnatural. He feels that Pioneer DV-400V is much better in terms of features and ease of use. But considering its price the Sony DVP NS77H/S a good buy and its video performance matches that of Pioneer. However he found the remote control confusing as it has similarly-shaped and sized buttons and the arrangement was not done in a logical way but it can control some functions on TVs of other makes. The Sony HS77 is a nice-looking upconverting DVD with many formats. This player has both optical and coaxial digital outs), upconverts up to 1080p over HDMI. Besides its remote control with poor buttons layout, this player has a good feature set and all the inputs needed for an overall good performance.

  • Will European DVD play in DVP-NS77H?

    Pardon my ignorance. I have the above listed Sony player. I ordered a DVD from a European company and received the following message from them: "Our DVDs are region 0 (global), however, as with our VHS tapes, they are also PAL format and you probably require NTSC." Will this DVD play in my Sony? Thank you. :^) Erik

  • Can't hear DTS.

    Current hookup: Sony DVP-NS77H to Sony KDF-50WE655 HDTV using the HDMI cable for both video and audio; Sony KDF-50WE655 to Yamaha RX-V457 AV receiver using TOS-link optical cable. The receiver has two TOS-link inputs, and the other is being used for the soundcard on my computer. When I opt for DTS sound, I get nothing. Do I need to connect the DVD player directly to the AV receiver with a TOS-link (or digital co-ax) to enable the DTS? However, this unit WILL play DVD-Audio (and quite nicely), though there's no mention of it in the Sony literature or other info I've reviewed.
