Any Backups that are known to have it?

Try to play one of your back-up BD disks and wait 20 minutes. You'll know because all of a sudden, you won't have any more sound and you'll get some sort of message on the screen.

Seems to work so far. No Problems on two Backups.

You can find list online. Not all titles have Cinavia, so you need to test with titles known to have it.

Has the BD660 had Cinavia update in this firmware from UK - Firmware update for BD650/BD660 (Ver:H10IMN0506/Date:2012.12.04)

Found here - http://www.lg.com/uk/support-product/lg-BD660

Any clues as to what this formware does? I wish they would give details on the firmware updates!!

Thanks guys!

I can't even guess what's going on with my BD690. I have BD.8.97.423 firmware and it's not reading ANY of my data discs. Every one f them shows empty whether it's AVI or mp4. Help?

In my opinion that update shouldn't have to do anything with Cinavia, because its a new Servo Version, not a Main Version of the Firmware (look also at the small size of the update).

I watched The Polar Express in 3D last night. The picture was absolutely stunning. This player is "hands down" the holy grail of LG Blu Ray players. smile.gif

Answer: Unplug for a few minutes and let it reboot. Presto Change -O - everything is there.

Thread Starter 
Anyone able to stream AVCHD video (1920x1080i, 24 mbps) using the BD670. I just bought a Canon Vixia HD Camcorder which records AVCHD at 1920x1080i, 60fps at it's highest quality setting. After I copy the video to a Win7 PC and then try to stream it from the PC through the BD670 to my TV, I get a "Video Resolution Not Supported" error when I click on the video clip icon using the BD670 "Movie" menu. I am able to successfully stream 720P security camera video from the same Win7 PC using the BD670.

Looks like we have a new Servo Update and Software, this is direct from the BD660 connected to the net, not available on the website yet.

Servo - 0507
Software - BD6.212.0

I have tried Iplayer and you are still only able go left and right!!!!!
Movies from shares are still not sorted in order!!!!
No Lovefile or Netfix!!!
Not able to Pause or rewind from DLNA media server (WD Twonky server), you can from the shares though, but films not in order!!!

So what has this SW update done? Cinavia maybe?
post #2085 of 2318
I have a BD-670 hooked up via HDMI to my TV, and via Toslink to my DAC which then goes to a stereo receiver. The idea behind this was to enable listening to audio without the TV on (CDs or whatever). When I tried this for the first time last night, I could only get sound from my TV. I fiddled with the audio settings on the LG but couldn't get it to work (HDMI and Digital Output are set to PCM). When I hoooked up my old Panasonic BD-605 the exact same way (same cables, etc) it worked right away. Is there something I'm missing on the LG, or will it not output sound via Toslink when HDMI is hooked up? I was trying to listen to a standard stereo cd.

LG Blu Ray player and multi angle icon issue

Equipment: LG LW5300 LED/3D TV with 3D Blu Ray Player bundle (not sure on model # of Blu Ray Player that came with system).

Watching our newly acquired Ice Age Continental Drift Blu Ray last night, we kept getting this annoying movie camera looking icon that would randomly appear for a few seconds in the upper right corner. From my research it appears this is something to do with multiple camera angles. However, I can find no mention of multiple camera angles as a feature on this Blu Ray, and there are no options for this in the movie's menu options. I then went into the LG Blu Ray player and TV options, and could find no such options to disable this icon either. I did find the multiple angle selection in one of the menus, however. At the end of the movie just as the credits were starting to roll, I paused the movie when the icon appeared, and went into the options menu. I noticed that in previous scenes the angle option was showing 1/1. But when the icon would appear it would show 1/2. If I pressed the #2 button on the remote it would change to a 2/2 in the menu option, but nothing changed on the picture in the movie. I contacted LG Chat Support, and they were not much help at their lowest tier level of support. She said she was going to escalate it to further tier support and they would get back with me. I just wanted to see if anyone on here has dealt with this same issue, and if there was anything that could be done about it.
We have watched a decent amount of Blu Ray movies with this player, and this is the first movie we have ever seen this problem.

Thanks.
post #2088 of 2318
Please post the model of the Blu Ray player and I'll merge your post into the owner's thread for that player.

This is the way LG handles multiple camera angles or any other special features that have multiple video streams that are synced. The Blu-ray.com review mentions a feature that I would assume is causing this:

"Party with a Pirate Mode: Turn on this overlay mode and Aziz Ansari's rabbit character, Squint, occasionally pops up on screen to deliver a pithy remark, like "Ah yeah, pirate dance party!" or "Hang ten!" It's rather pointless. "

Unfortunately, to my knowledge there is nothing you can do to prevent the icons from showing when a disc is authored in this way.

Hiccups on BluRay Playback - LG BD650

I have a LG BD650 BluRay player which has started to cause problems when I am playing BluRay discs. All the discs I have are legal originals so they shouldn't be a problem but recently during playback the discs seem to hiccup. The volume cuts out for about 2 seconds and the picture flickers. Once the volume returns the film carries on as normal.

The really annoying thing is the problem seems to be getting worse. The BluRay player is connected to my Samsung TV directly by a HDMI cable and the software on the LG player is up to date.

Does anyone have any ideas what is causing this? I have looked through the threads similar but these are all about drives in PC's not actuall standalone players.

Is the player knackered or is there something I can do?
post #2092 of 2318
sounds like the optical lense is going bad. Is it still under warranty?

Like RonAlam said, the optical disc might be going bad. But just in case, try to blow into the disc tray, or find a way to clean it. I had a problem where I was getting disc errors and/or movies wouldn't play more than a couple of seconds. Blew into the tray, and it's been fine ever since. I guess it was dusty.
post #2094 of 2318
mettymetal: What are the titles of the back up discs you tried with 423.E firmware? Do they have Cinavia infected audio track?
Can you confirm this before I upgrade to this firmware?

On a different note I discovered it would not play all .wmv files so I just spent a huge amount of time converting them to Mp4. It likes the 720s fine, but not the 1920x1080plus a few other sizes.. Also what good is this new update?

I'm unable to play .wmv files too and am a little stumped by it. I have digital copies of Star Trek and Machete purchased with those blu rays that downloaded as .wmv and my understanding after a bit of research online is that the codecs that show for both (Windows Media Video 9 and Windows Media Audio 9.1/9.2) is actually the same thing as the "VC-1 SM (WMV3)" codec that my BD690 owner's manual says it supports. Anyone know if that's not the case? My understanding of codecs is limited but I would assume that a player advertised to play .wmv files would not have a problem with what I assume is the default codec Windows 7 uses to download a .wmv file for play in Windows Media Player 12. Unless maybe these are DRM protected?

Also what is the best method for converting .wmv files to .mp4? I tried downloading a couple programs yesterday but one didn't work and the other prompted my to download a separate decoder program which I get spooked about downloading too much stuff when I don't know what it is or how safe the source is. Appreciate any feedback or recommendations anyone has. Thanks.
post #2096 of 2318
your forgetting that the codecs are like unlock keys on a PC. It connects online and validates that the key is legit. The player doesnt do this. Besides why would you play a WMV file on the player anyways? Its a horrible format in my opinion.
post #2097 of 2318
I don't have any preference for .wmv, I just want to be able to play the files and from what I remember that was the only choice I was given for downloading the digital version of those movies that came with the blu rays. (Since more and more blu rays are packaged with digital copies these days my thought was to go in w/my dad on movies we're both interested in with me keeping the digital versions for now while he takes the BDs since he's only got a static setup). But if my only option on some of them is .wmv then I either have to figure out how to get the player to play it (which the owner's manual says it should) or how to convert them to .mp4. Since my experience with movie files is pretty limited so far, any guidance on how to do either would be appreciated.
post #2098 of 2318
The digital version is made for PC/Mac or portable devices, ie phone tablet, laptop... It needs to connect to the internet to validate the codec which will allow you to view on these devices. The codec is not developed for set top boxes. Your best option is to rip the blu ray as an MKV or WMV.
post #2099 of 2318
Alright, thanks Ron. I don't know why it never occurred to me the studios would be coding the digital copy to make sure I couldn't play it back on my TV through my player or some other DLNA device but I could see from an anti-piracy point of view why they would want to do that. Just makes the digital copy kind of a waste for me since I never watch movies on anything but my TV. Anyway, at least now I know it's not the .wmv format that the player has any problem with. So thanks for that and for the tip on ripping these to disk instead.
post #2100 of 2318
probably a dumb question, but here-goes anyway. I have a BD630. If I attach it to my HTPC via a wired network, can I send any kind of video to it from the HTPC or is it's networking capability strictly to allow its built-in apps (netflix et all) to access the internet?
