I am going to reformat it to FAT32 and see if it will play a mkv file which is up to the 4gb limit and will report back.
It will play mkv files larger than 4gb from my 1.5TB external drive connected to a PC via DNLA server, but playback is very choppy and stuttery, despite being connected via wired network connection through my router) and I haven't been able to solve this - or a separate lip sync issue when playing avi and other video files via DNLA, despite trying various delay settings.
Formatting to FAT32 made no difference whatsoever, still only plays mkv files from USB if they're lower than 2Gb.
Wonder why my machine recognises a USB formatted in ExFAT but doesn't respect the fact that it then supports files greater than 2gb. Am wondering if maybe a previous firmware update did this, perhaps after the manual was released, and maybe the manual then wasn't updated to reflect this?
Anyone know if there are lists of firmware versions and change logs for them anywhere online so I can try and see if anything changed after the manual was produced?
And is it worth contacting Panasonic and asking them to do a firmware update that will allow mkvs greater than 2gb to be played from USB?
And if so, does anyone know how the **** would I go about this?
