Pioneer DV-410V Owner's Thread - Page 11

post #301 of 508
What is the implication of the languages listed in each of firmwares at pioneer FAQ? Does it mean it does not support the other languages not listed (1) in the menu or (2) in the subtitles or (3) both? Someone please let me know!! Thank you in advance!
post #302 of 508
It's the languages it can show in file names in file browser!
post #303 of 508
Thank you for your kind explanation, Hkan!!
post #304 of 508
Hkan, my firmware version is 8620A, which is multi-region already. Is it to be okay to apply the pioneerFAQ firmware over this firmware? I understand that I will take sole risk of executing the firmware, but I would like to hear from you (no responsibility to you if it does not work out).
post #305 of 508
Hkan, sorry to mention that mine is DV 610 where my firmware version is 8620A and reference firmware version is 8602A. I assume that the method is same as in 410.

Hkan,

Thank you for providing this customized firmware for Pio player. It has really nice features when playing avi files.

I would like to propose you the following modification for the next version. When you scroll during a movie ( avi file in this case ) would it be possible to show the speed on the screen? I noticed that are two speeds available, but is kind a difficult to distinguish between the two.

Also I noticed that when I use a USB stick and scrolling the movie, fast forward it works super quick comparing to rewind. Is there are reason why it works like this? I did not try the same thing when using a file recorded on a disc.

I have an advice to the users of this firmware: after flashing the new firmware set in the player menu your TV system (PAL or NTSC) instead of Multi system. I had this issue with my setup. I have a NTSC TV connected to the player via a HDMI cable. My setting for TV system was set to Multi. I tried to played an avi file coded at 25fps and at this moment the TV shown me a message 'Mode not supported'. Trying to power off the devices did not help at all, also changing the TV input had no success. I had all the time the same message 'Mode not supported'. The only way to fix this was to flash again the firmware on the player.

I strongly advice NOT to use a firmware that is for another player, it could KILL your player.
There is modded firmwares for DV-610AV

I just bought an all-region Pioneer DV-410V for use on a new 50" Panasonic 1080p plasma (TH50PZ800U). The DV-410'Vs firmware is YJB8223B. It properly plays DVDs of all regions when connected through either the DV-410's "video" output or "component video" outputs, but strangely, when the DV-410V is connected through its HDMI output it only plays Region 1 DVDs... when I try to play a DVD of any other region through HDMI, the audio plays, but the video does not...

Any idea what the problem might be?

Note, I also have a slightly older all-region DV-400V connected to a much older Sony Plasma with a DVI but with no HDMI input about which I previously posted on the DV-400V thread... The DV-400V plays DVDs of all regions through the DV-400V's HDMI output into the Sony plasma's DVI input using a DVI>HDMI adapter (although the DV-400V's upscaling won't work on HDMI>DVI unless I change to a prior firmware version supporting DVI, which firmware change I have not made). I raise this only to point out that even though my older DV-400V plays non Region 1 DVDs through its HDMI output, when trying to play any non Region 1 DVD on the DV-410V through its HDMI output into my older Sony 42" plasma's DVI input (using the HDMI>DVD adapter), I have essentially the same problem as when trying to play non Region 1 DVDs through the Panasonic's HDMI - e.g. with the DV410V outputting HDMI into the Sony's DVI, although Region 1 DVDs play fine, DVDs of other any other region do not play... So, the "all-region HDMI playback problem" doesn't seem to be with either the HDMI input on my Panasonic plasma or the DVI input on my Sony plasma, but rather the problem seems to lie with something in my DV-410V.

Any suggestions?

Thanks,

Hi,
I've just bought this player and have a few questions, tried to search but couldn't find what i was looking for. Sorry if these are really noobish questions!

Firmware is YJB8A13A and connected via HDMI to my (also new) Pana TH-42PX8A which is a 720p screen.

1. What setting do i leave the Pioneer dvd player on under Video Output-HDMI Resolution? 720p or 1080i?

2. Can I make the Pioneer logo screensaver move around the screen like in the old DV-393 player? I'm worried about screen burn.

Thanks!
post #310 of 508
Would you guys say this unit is a worhtwhile upgrade to the Sony DVP-NS75H I have been using for the past 2+ years? Would be feeding to a 50" 720p Samsung. I sit about 14ft away from the television, so not sure if any more upgrades would give me mushc of a difference in viewing quality. I am pretty much set on this player if I were to upgrade, want to keep it sub $100.

Thoughts? Since I have a 720p plasma should I just stick with the player I have now (which has been great) or is this a worthwhile upgrade for minimal picture quality boost?
post #311 of 508
I want to buy this player. This new year.

Does Hkan's firmware work with all DV-410V version? My one would be from Australia so I wonder if I will brick it with this mod.

There should be no problems doing this!

Hello.

I'm sorry, but i cant read 11 pages in english looking for the same problem . I'll just ask the question, and i hope you will be able to help me with my problem.

I bought this player a few days ago. Connected it with hdmi cable to my hd-ready tv. I didnt change any settings. When i'm trying to start an avi file from a usb flashdrive, it says "the resolution of this video file is not supported" or smthng (i dont actually know how it is in english). Video codec FourCC DX50, resolution 1280x720(16:9), framerate 119,880 Hz, audio codec 0x0055 (ISO MPEG-1 Layer3), 48000 Hz, Stereo, 192 kbit/sek. So.. why? And how do i play it? This is EXTREMLY important. Please, help me. I will be very greatful.

Igor.
post #315 of 508
This is your problem: 1280x720
The resolution is way to high for what the player can handle!
It only handles up to 720x576.

You need to convert it to a smaller resolution that the player can handle!

It's not a HD player!
It can how ever upscale a SD signal to 1080
post #318 of 508
ah...i get it.

Hkan, tyvm.
post #319 of 508
Does anybody know if I can hook the DV-410 up with both the HDMI and Component video connections at the same time?

I've had the player connected to my Denon receiver via HDMI with no problems. However, with this hookup, the receiver has to be on in order to watch a DVD, and the only way to get the sound to the televisions speakers is to change a menu setting on the Denon.

Basically, I would like to make it easy for my 8 year old to be able to plug in one of his cartoons, and watch it without having to listen to it in surround sound.

Can I leave the unit connected to the Denon via HDMI, and also connect directly to the television via component video and audio out, and then just choose the appropriate input on the TV when watching a DVD?

Thanks

Yes!
post #321 of 508
I'd like to share my system setup.

This is how its hooked up:

Sharp Aquos 46"LCD (HDMI)+ Pioneer DV-410V + 2.5" 80GB IDE External Hard Drive.

The Pioneer DVD-410V is USB 2.0 and does provide power to the 2.5" Hard Drive(IDE) via USB Cable.

Note: The DV-400V is USB 1.1 and cannot power a 2.5" Hard Drive, but you can always connect a 3.5" External Drive that has its own Power Adapter, not as clean looking but will do the job.

So I simply convert my DVD movies (another topic) to XVID/DIVX and copy them to the hard drive. Movies with Sequels are organized in their own folders... so as an example all the Lord of the ring movies are made of 6 x .AVI Files a total of 12+ Hours So I can hit play in the morning and it will play the files in sequence.

Upscaling is amazing, I'm very picky when it comes to video compression and I find the results acceptable. I convert all my Movies to 800MB Chunks. So theoretically I should be able to fit 100 Movies/Shows on the 80GB Hard Drive.

The Player will stay in USB MODE even after power on/off which is a bonus, which means I just Hit Power, Scroll through the directory listing, pick a movie and hit enter and I'm done.


PS: The only thing I havent figured out, is how to make my TV Switch to DVD Input Automatically when I turn the DVD Player ON.

This info is great. It would be interesting to learn more about converting "my DVD movies (another topic) to XVID/DIVX".......care to share. Or point me in the right direction ?
As far as figuring how to auto your tv input........
You will................'cuz your a whiz kid !!!!!!!!!!!

It would be more than a few paragraphs to explain how I do it, but there are numerous well written articles written on the subject. However I will just mention what I use in which order, than you can use Google to read more details into it.

If I'm doing a straight DVD to .AVI (DIVX/XVID) conversion I just use "FairUse" about 2.5-3 Hours (depending on movie length) on my 1.8Ghz Laptop.

If I want to edit out Credits (and more) as an example. I use "DVDShrink" than output the result to an .ISO File. Than I use "FairUse" to convert that .ISO into .AVI (DVIX/XVID) takes about same amount of time.

"FairUse" has a drop down option to convert for "Stand Alone Player" which works great with both of my Pioneers DV-400V and DV-410V.

This is great because I no longer have to worry about the chance of Damaging my Original DVD's in any manor. Dont ask me how, but I forgot to remove a DVD already in the tray and put another one ontop and the results were not pretty.
post #324 of 508
There is a more extensive guide on how to rip movies using FairUse here, everything is explained and no problems playing any files with these steps at all, much time was put into this tutorial

O BTW, Im pretty sure the USB port on the 410 can power a IDE 2.5 HD but not a SATA 2.5 HD since the IDE has power running thru the IDE connector and the SATA requires 2 connectors one for power and one for data , USB 1.1 & 2.0 only differ in speed, they have the same amount of power going to them......just a FYI for you guys

I also have a Pioneer DV-400V(USB 1.1) and it wont power the IDE 2.5" Drive. Even with 2.5" IDE Drives, if you connect to a USB 1.0/1.1 You need to use a Dual USB Cable to get it working.

Thanks for the additional info, I wasnt aware SATA 2.5 HD's were not available.

Wow! Lots to read here.

I am about to get a DV410V-K pretty soon. I am mainly buying it for it's ability to play PAL and other world region dvds in addition to my American dvd collection.

It seems like a very capable player indeed. But there's one thing I find a little odd. It can play DIVX. I thought that was history. I remember when they started that whole thing quite a while back and remember thinking that it would never work. IIRC you paid $4 for a disc you could only watch a few times, then it was no good anymore. I never heard anymore about it shortly after it was introduced, but apparently there is still some demand for it. Weird.
post #327 of 508
The Divx that you remember (which I do as well) and the divx support that this player brings is two different mentalities. Alot of movies you can download off the internet are encoded to a smaller size using the Dvix/Xvid codec and thus multiple movies can be put on a single DVD with a acceptable loss in quality.

Youre thinking of this

We're talking about this

I just purchased my Second DV-410V-K To replace the DV-400.

FutureShop (Canada) has them now for $89.

Analog,
Thanks for the info. I use Shrink and imageburn, and will research fairuse...........thanks again

You can find this info in many places..... USB 1.1 and 2.0 have different speed ratings only and the same 5V DC 500mA power output, therefore dual port with one peripheral connected = 500mA x 2 = 1A that can power up external 2.5" hard drive. (You will need original, or equivalent, heavier gauge and shorter cable for this task) All single ports in newer (2008 and up) notebook computers (and DV-410) have this dual power output in regards to external hard drives popularity. End of story.
By the way, both DV-400 and DV410 can only handle about 3Mb/s sustained read rate which is little above USB 1.1 (1.5Mb/s) and WAAAY below 2.0 specifications (up to 60Mb/s)
