My friend has a BDT-230 bluray player with up to date firmware that's missing an Amazon Instant Video app, though it's got Netflix and some others. I'm baffled, anyone have pointers on how to fix this? Appreciated!

I just bough a 330 last week for the dual HDMI so I can watch 3D very satisfied the image is very nice a lot better then when I was using my PS3. There's just one problem and maybe someone can help me sorry if this as been address before but don't have time to read through all 24 pages. Every time I start the player I change the input on my TV to HDMI 2 but as soon as I touch the DVD remote it changes back to HDMI 1 I have to do this 2-3 time before I can start the movie my receiver does the same Thing I put my receiver on HDMI (rename to player) and it goes to TV/SAT and the thing is there is nothing hook up in TV/SAT.


Here's what I have
Receiver Pioneer VSX-919-AH-K 7.1
TV Panasonic TC-P60UT50
Player Panasonic DMP-BDT330

Sounds like a HDMI Control issue to me. Try turning that feature off and see if the problem goes away.

which panosonics had the uniphier chips in the blue ray players ?

I read some article and I thought that it was multiple ones not just the DMP-BDT500

I have a 330 and a 361 but curious on the older models that had the chip in it.

The last were the X20/500 series. The BDT700, never released in the US, also uses a uniphier chip.

All the BD Panasonic players featuring Adaptive Chroma Processing in their menu will have Uniphier.

Personally, after owning lots of blu ray players I consider Uniphier an amazing chip. For instance, I own Sony's S790, S6200 and S5100 and I can say that Sony does not have a chip in their blu ray players matching the Uniphier.

Did anyone ever solve definitively the issue with dropouts in the Sony "mastered in 4K" titles playing back on the BDT230? I have the same problem and got little help from Panasonic live-chat. "It must be the disk, not the player, if your other discs play correctly."

Well, not necessarily...

In my case, the offending titles were "Fury" and "The Equalizer."

I've read most of this thread and it looks like most of this topic peters out before and after page 23 of posts.

Be really happy to hear any workarounds that have worked for folks. Now that I see the problem is limited to a specific disc release type, I will contact Panasonic again and see if we can get a firmware update.

Do you know why Panasonic stopped using it after the x20 series?

When I contacted Panasonic in Canada, they wanted me to send them two Blu-Ray disks (say > $60) so they can test their $130 player. I declined. I let them know that many people were having these problems, but they didn't seem to be interested enough in fixing the issue to go out and by a disk or two. So, if it gets fixed, it gets fixed. If it doesn't, my next player will NOT be a Panasonic.

As for the workarounds, I had set player out to RGB and that worked well for months, and then one day I played a disk that had problems when set to RGB so I had to go back to Automatic(?). I haven't had another disk fail (yet) so I haven't reset it (yet).

Just came back here to see if there was any news.

The problem happened to me again last week while watching Chappie. Panasonic is dropping the ball here. I am pretty loyal to them but this is getting ridiculous.

It's clearly not the discs, it's the "mastered in 4k".

This is an issue with all players that use this version of the mediatek chipset. Nothing they can do. Later versions do not have this problem. Oppo 93 also has issues with seamless branching titles. Easy fix is to change audio to PCM and change HDMI video to 4:2:2 output.

Teachsac, for me that quick fix did not work. What did work was changing HDMI output to RGB, but, as a previous poster mentioned, that's not a true fix because that setting noticeably degraded the color quality. Panasonic techs suggested I turn on 24p, but that didn't work either. They claim that if that didn't work they will "further research the problem." Will let you know what happens next.

Does anyone know how to bypass the copy protection on this BD player? I tried my backup BDs and they all say copyright protection.
