I have a BDP-S5100 and am trying to work out what might be causing this problem. When watching a movie streaming from a DLNA server via wireless connection, it stops playing after half an hour or so. It is as if someone has pressed the Stop button on the remote. There is no error shown on the screen. I can start playback again immediately but it is from the start of the movie. The timing of it stopping isn't exact each time.
I have tried both Windows Media on Windows as the server and also Plex Media Server on Linux. The same thing occurs on both.
The player is within 5 meters of the wireless router.
Checking the logs of the Plex server I dont see any error.
Any suggestions on how to determine why it stops playback?
Not sure if anyone can help me here:
I just bought an S5100 to replace a Panasonic BDT-230 (had video issues going through my receiver while trying to play any Sony "Mastered in 4K" blu ray) but have noticed a problem/audio difference.
During Tron: Legacy, there's a little section where the horn sound effects from the soundtrack are much louder when playing the disc on the S5100, compared to the Panasonic. Also, it sounds like it's the surround speakers in my 7.1 setup that are too loud, while the front speakers still sound fine, I believe. I need to do more testing on this.
Anyone have any ideas? I'm going to later try the S5100 straight to the TV and see if that makes any difference and I'll also reset the receiver.
A different blu ray player shouldn't change anything right? The info on the disc is sent to the receiver in exactly the same manner? So, possibly it's the receiver messing something up? Still, I'm a little confused why changing blu ray players would have this kind of effect.
