Default Blu-Ray DvD Players Generally Slow?

This has been pondering through my little mind, I bought a Panasonic Blu-ray Disc Player (DMPBD30).

When ever I first power it on to open the tray and put a dvd inside I have to wait a couple of minutes before the tray actually opens, Now also once the movie is in it seems to take about another 20 seconds before it shows up on my HDTV.

It is set up on Ez-Link meaning when i power up the DVD player it automatically will switch my TV over to HDMI2.

Maybe I'm use to everything working in seconds aka my old DVD player open right away showed video content within 5-10 seconds, my computer optical drives always open right away??.

PS sorry if this is in the wrong section i'll use one noobie pass If it is :0

Have you actually timed it? Players other than the PS3 are known to be much slower than a typical DVD player when starting up and loading a disc. However, a couple of minutes sounds excessive. Most of the comments I have seen talk about 30-60 seconds to open the drawer.

My BD player is pretty slow with loading and opening the disc tray, but after updating it to the latest firmware, it is about 15 seconds or so to open.

Its normal to have slow load times though, just make sure you're up to date with firmware.

As suggested...it's a good idea to make sure you have the latest firmware on your Panasonic, but it will never boot and load as fast as standard DVD players. Maybe when we're on the 10th generation player.

I updated my Sony BDP-S1 to 3.85 but haven't used it yet, I hope it is faster. The BDP-S1 was very slow to open and load at 3.80.

I was pretty far behind on my firmware when I updated to 3.85. My BDP-S1 was at 2.0 I think. I noticed a decent difference with power up time and tray open/close time... Can't speak for the difference between 3.80 and 3.85 though.

Remember that these devices are computer based and therefore have to boot up just like your computer.

I have three players for Blu-ray, the PS3 is very fast and the Samsung BD-P1200 is slow and the Sony BDP-S1 very slow. My HD DVD players are slow too, the HD-A1 might be about the same as the BDP-S1 but I don't have the patience to time the two players. I get up and walk away after I hit open and come back later when I insert the disc and walk away again.

The issue doesn't bother me much but I can sure see that some might be very annoyed by it. If you are used to player like the Oppo DV-980H that responds quickly, the slow Blu-ray players would seem really slow.
