Hi all, my first time on these forums - hope I'm posting in the right thread.

I can play all my movie files - mkv, avi etc - just fine off a HDD connected via USB. However when connecting via the network (I use a home WiFi LAN), even though my S590 can see all of the folders and files, every single time I try to play one I get the dreaded "File corrupt or unspported" - even though it's the exact same movie file that played fine off USB.

Any ideas what causes this?

Let us know the following:
-container you are using
-audio and video codecs in the files you are trying to play
- DLNA server you are using

Hi everyone,

I have had a BDP S390 for a couple of years now and I’ve been able to stream all my AVI movies (Xvid video format) from my laptop through our hardline network to the bluray player without a problem (using Windows Media Player). I recently purchased a WD My Cloud and copied the movies over. I believe the WD My Cloud uses the Twonky media server. The S390 detected the NAS right away and lists all the movies, but I get the message “file is corrupt or unsupported” whenever I try to play them. Again, I have not changed the format of the movies, they are identical to the ones on the laptop. One thing I noticed is that when I check the movie list from the laptop on the S390, it shows the movie format as AVI. However, when I do the same from the NAS, it shows the movie format as MPEG. Any ideas how I can get this fixed?

Thanks!

It was hilarious even if a bit predictable!

If you are using Homstream, you may have to switch the device type to "generic device". That usually does the trick for me, but Homestream is pretty fickle.

I was looking into updating my S590 for a S6200 but I see that the S590 goes for $200 used on Amazon, that's $50 more than a new S6200!

I was thinking of upgrading for the better PQ streaming, though I've never had any issues with DLNA. Apart from output options... does anyone have an insight as to why the S590 is this popular, what does it do, or have, I might be missing?

For one thing, the S590 can decode 7.1 Dolby and DTS into 7.1 LPCM, which is used when secondary audio mix is enabled.

The x200 series players decode 7.1 Dolby and DTS into 2.0 LPCM. Sony saved money by licensing only 2 channel decoders.

Selden -

The x2000 players still pass the multichannel Dolby/DTS, (from internet streams, DLNA, and USB) through to a capable receiver, right?

And for my own education, in case I've been using it but not knowing (I blame the slim Sony manuals and cryptic x-bar interface)... but what do you mean by "when secondary audio mix is enabled."

Thanks!

If the incoming DTS or Dolby audio stream is passed unchanged through to the receiver, then that's called bitstreaming, and you get all of the channels provided by the supplier. The two-channel limitation is a problem when the disc player translates DTS or Dolby into unencoded LPCM (linear pulse coded modulation).

Secondary Audio Mix is an option in Blu-ray players which can be used when a Blu-ray disc has been authored in a way which includes "extras" that can overlay (put popup windows and dialog on top of) the main program. Secondary audio/video is actually used on very few discs, though. The Adventures of TinTin is one, I think. Mixing is turned on by default in most players, including Sony's, and has to be turned off if you want to bitstream the audio. You'll have to dig through the player's menus to find it.
