What HDMI switcher are ya'll using with the Panny?


I have a Belkin and it works perfect for both my Panny and my HD TiVo HR10-250. I don't have to turn anything off to switch inputs. It also came with a free HDMI cable.

Thanks drbonbi,

I tried the codes before purchasing mine and I just tried them again, unfortunately they don't work for this product. I have used the code for cables and UPS and they are a real money saver. I was able to find my switcher at Frys for $175.

divedude - do you have the Belkin switcher also?

When you first turn on the Panny does it flash different colors before the Blu-ray symbol comes up?

I am having an audio setup problem also I hope ya'll can help me with. I am using the analog outs, but only 5.1 for now. I have my Onkyo 703 set for PureAudio. Every time I want to play a DVD I have to figure how to get the volume out of all of my speakers and not just the 2 fronts. I go back to the panny speaker setup and it will only output the test signal from the 2 front speakers.

Do I have something set up wrong? Also why does it revert back to the 7.1 system after I delete the rear speakers for the 5.1 setup?

BTW. I bought a Westy 47" 1080p monitor just before Xmas. Sensational PQ with the BD10.

Thank you for your response. How about other Blu-ray / HD DVD brands besides the BD10, can it be done?

Question on DD EX and DTS 6.1 tracks: I have the Panny and a Denon 4806 connected via HDMI for audio/video. I have a 6.1 speaker setup connected to the 4806. When playing the DD-EX or DTS 6.1 tracks on say Rambo or Crank shouldn't the rear center surround channel become enabled on the receiver? The little rear center icon doesn't light up on the receiver. I just get the standard 5.1 lights. Do I have some setting wrong somewhere?

I am considering getting this, so far I see the prices online is $1,300, that is the only player that has 7.1 surround sound, am I right? I know most of the people are very pleased with the player so that is why I am considering getting this plus the 7.1 surround sound....

I have a Denon 887, and when I have the BD10 connected to the receiver via HDMI, and when I play a 6.1 track, it lights up the rear surround on my input. I don't know if it actually play that track (I only have a 5.0 setup), but the receiver is receiving it.

Yeah, that's weird. I'm almost positive the rear center lit up on The Descent, but I'll have to double-check. It definitely worked with DD-EX encoded DVD's.

On the player, make sure Dolby Digital and DTS are set to Bitstream(the player only decodes up to 5.1 on older audio codecs), and all speakers are enabled(and set to large) in the setup menu.

I am using the analog outs and having trouble getting audio out of all of my speakers. I believe it is a setting off somewhere in the Panny setup that is doing this. Can someone that is using the analog outs tell me what settings you are using?

Have you set HDMI audio off? Having it "on" might cause this kind of problems. Also check your multi-channel audio setup, so that you have none of the speakers set off.

Well those are definitely set to Bitstream, but I'll check the speaker setup. I thought you only set the speakers to LARGE if you weren't using a powered subwoofer (like I am)? I'm pretty sure they're set at SMALL. Thanks!

The DMP-BD10 is the only player with 8 audio spigots, their full use will not happen till the April firmware upgrade.

Robert, owner of ****************, may make you a much better deal than $1300.00. Just make sure you have a written (as in email) statement of how your order is to be processed (as in double boxed, etc.). This is for info only, does not mean that I indorse this dealer.

Wendell - would you know anything else about the April update? Specifically if they are going to enable 1080p/24 video.

Why is there NO perfect equipment, only compromises?

Leave them all set to large and 7.1 and 0 delay on the player. Then switch the receiver to small, 6.1, delays etc...(when using HDMI).

That is one thing that is bothering me. One time it worked with the HDMI on and and another with the HDMI off. Maybe I am just going a little crazy.

I have checked my A/V receiver and the Panny for the speakers every time.

Hello,

AUDIO error on the Pana?

Maybe somebody can help me with the following audio supposed factory error of the player (software?);

Setup components as follows,
Pana bd10, audio out thru coax and analogue,
CRT barco 1209/2 trough HDMI and French box (John's)
TV Samsung (old conventional CRT) via composite.
Denon 1801 amplifier fed by coax digital and the analogue 6 ch ext in from the Pana
Aitos tubes amplifier for centre and two for both fronts,
Rears jbl trough 1801 amp.
Sub active Rel.
HDMI audio is always selected off.

The case;
I left the Barco off,
Turned on the TV and pana, amp etc.
Put a DVD in the pana, concert of In the flesh live from Roger Waters,
Selected 5.1 DD from the disk (and not PCM stereo),
And played the disk.

I found out that after a start the centre speaker fainted after a wile, after say 1 minute or less.
Not completely dead but hardly playing along and the left and right gained the sound slowly which should come from the centre? It was mixing the vocals into L/R.
Odd.

This might be because the player didn't see a HDMI user but I am not sure.

If I play a normal 5.1 DD with the Barco ON all seems well. Also with a BD great sound, no problems.

Is this a familiar problem? to be solved by Pana (update of firmware) or is this an unique problem with my player.

Maybe a nice experiment with a similar setting in order to establish this error and report to Panasonic.?
If this error is unique for my player I like to hear also of course by your reactions.

Thanks,
Regards,
Paul

rgathright,
I do have the Belkin switcher. I don't ever see different colors. When I switch to an input device that is not turned on, it flashed green 5 or 6 times and then goes solid green. This is also what it does for my unused input if I switch to it. If the input device is already on when I switch it, the light just turns green.

Actually divedude I was talking about the flashing on the TV. When hooked up to the switch there are different colors flashed on the TV screen when it is first turned on.

I will return it for another one tomorrow.

Nothing official from Panasonic. Here is a link to the official Panasonic site for firmware.

I've already posted this in the BD10 1.4 Firmware thread.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I'm assuming (assuming being the operative word) that since I plan on letting the Panasonic do all the decoding and outputting the audio via 7.1 analog, that if a movie has a 6.1 soundtrack it will automatically split the rear channel into two mono channels - that way I'll get sound out of both my rear speakers and not just one. Is that correct?

Why is there NO perfect equipment, only compromises?

Yes and No. It will for the new audio codecs, but will only decode up to 5.1 for the older ones(DTS and Dolby Digital).
If your receiver can extract a 6th or 7th channel from PCM from the older codecs than thats fine, if not, hook up a digital connection(coax, toslink) and send it bitstream.

If I understand correctly then the Panasonic will take a SD-DVD wit a DTS-ES track (e.g.: LOTR Directors cut in 6.1) and send it through the analog cables ignoring the rear channel.

If I get a BluRay disc with Dolby Digital Plus, it will split the sixth channel into two mono channels and send it.

Do I have it?

HiFiBuys (Tweeter) has them on sale for 999.99... I just bought one for that price a week ago at my local Tweeter. They have no restock fees and they don't "force" you to swap for a replacement if you get a bad unit...VE does. Plus if you want a refund, you will have to pay to ship it back!

1) wont ignore, but will put it back into the surrounds.
2) Yes, but I havent been able to test it for sure using analogs(My receiver only has 5.1 ins), but HDMI does it.

No flashing of anything on the TV. The screen is black until the BD logo comes on. Now back in the 60's and 70's I would have enjoyed different colors flashing

So how did the new one work?
