Ok, I am now officially enraged at Panasonic as I am unable to play back mkv files, and now Avis, from my NAS (Western Digital MyBook Live) to my BTT-270 via DNLA.
I have the latest Twonky (7.0.9) installed on the NAS so it's not a problem on the NAS side.
The NAS is wired by ethernet to the router and I am positive its not a network issue, either - 100mb connection and wireless N AND all my household networked devices (PC, laptop, TIVO, 2 iPhones, ipad, Android smartphone and a netbook) are all simultaneously or otherwise performing flawlessly (wired and wireless), as is all other network functionality on the BTT-270. No connection drops on any of them, EVER.
YET THE EXACT SAME FILES PLAY WITHOUT ANY ****ING PROBLEM VIA USB THUMB DRIVE!!!!
Unless they're over 2Gb in size, that is.
These SAME FILES also played to an extent via DNLA from an external USB HDD connected to a PC, albeit very choppily and out of sync, even files over 2Gb in size!
This artificial limitation is a **** state of affairs.
Is there ANYTHING I can do to resolve this?
And if not, since the BTT-270 can read these files from USB then surely there is no technical reason why Panasonic can't fix this with a firmware update?
Is it worth asking them?
Any advice appreciated - thanks in advance!
