I bought a Denon 1611ud Blueray player a while ago ... have owned Denon equipment for several years and wanted to stay within the brand.
The Blueray disc player is very nice. However the DLNA player is not able to play most formats of video files when streamed from my home Synology server.
AVCHD videos seem to play fine, but I have had extreme difficulty getting WMV, MP4, MKV, and AVI to play. When I open a video file I get the green progress indicator for a while in the upper right corner of the screen, then either an alert "This format unsupported!", or sometimes I'll get video with no audio, or audio with no video, or the player hangs and I have to reboot it.
My $99 Sony Blueray player will play all of these formats just fine, but the Denon won't. I took the Denon into service shortly after I bought it -- they kept it for a couple of weeks and then told me nothing was wrong with it.
Is there a trick to getting the video decoder chipset to work properly on this unit, or do I have a broken unit?
