Hi to all. I have just bought bd-a1020. FLAC playing quality is really bad, it seams that player does not play FLAC at correct bitrate (info screen shows 128kbps-570kbs instead of 1000kbps-4000kbps). Because of that high tones are to grainy and disperse. Same thing happens from every source (DNLA server, USB stick). Is this unit just supports FLAC or it should play at correct quality? Please, can someone of owners can test this issue? Thanks in advance.

Just noticed that FLAC bit rate is not shown correct, player shows bit rate of previous played material (e.g. after played CD it shows 1411kbps, after played mp3 192kbps it shows 192kbps).

It seems that there are some issues with Yamaha BD-A1020 playing video files from a DLNA NAS box. It has been reported on German forums that the player needs quite some time to read data from an .AVI file stored on a NAS drive and while it is doing so everything is frozen - you cannot select any other file until the player finishes reading the previous one. So if you have, say 10 .AVI files is a directory and would like to go to the 6th one to play it, you would have to wait about 5-10 minutes as the player goes through each of the first 5, reading data from each and only then you can get to the file you want and play it. I have experienced exactly the same issue. This is very annoying and I have not figured out how to get around this issue. However this does not happen with .MKV files and you can scroll down the files list in seconds and play the one you want. Does anyone else with BD-A1020 have experienced this issue?
Another peculiarity in playing video files (I have tried with AVI and MKV) from an external source is that the Pause button does not work - basically I cannot pause the playback of the video file, the only option is to stop the playback but than you get to the folder list - not something you would want to do in a middle of a 2-hour movie. Is it just me or other people have experience that with their BD-A1020?

I could have sworn there was a general BD-A1020 thread here, but I guess this is the thread I saw. Anyway: When using the 1010, I'm aware that the manual says that when playing from USB sticks, they should be formatted using FAT16 or FAT32. For the most part, I am pretty successful using it with the NTFS file system. My only problem is the player not recognizing WAVs. If I use the NTFS file system, will the player recognize WAVs? If not, then the manual messed up saying that the 1010 will play WAVs. Will the 1020 play WAVs whether the FAT16, FAT32, or NTFS file system is used? My 9" Philips BD portable uses a MediaTek CPU and it doesn't recognize them either. So far, the only two players I got to play WAVs were a Pioneer Elite BDP-52FD via burning them to disc and my 9" Sony portable BD player via USB with the NTFS file system.

Hello Everyone. I'm considering buying the bd-a1020. I won't be using it for video playback. It would strictly be a networked music player (not even connected to a tv). I looked at the demo version of the AV Controller app (Android version). It seems that for the BD-A1020 the app only serves as a remote control for disc playback features and doesn't allow you to navigate your home network to search for music files etc. Is this really the case or is the demo version just not showing all functionality?

The same app also controls Yamaha networked AV receivers. The demo for receivers clearly shows you can navigate your home home network. It would seem stupid for them to not allow the app to do the same for the networked blu ray player.

I'd appreciate responses bcuz I'm trying to decide between the A1020 and the CD-N500 networked CD player which costs $300 more for seemingly less functionality but similar sound quality specs.

Thanks!

Yamaha Aventage BD-A1020 + FLAC playback issues

Howdy all,

Have been using a BD-A1020 for a while now, primarily for 2 channel audio playback. CD, SACD, DVD-A, and FLAC via USB flash stick.

My main issue is with FLAC playback, especially hi res files. Notably ones at 88khz or 176khz rates. Many of those files stutter regularly and/or take a long time to load up. Any thoughts or options on minimising these stutters/delays?
