I didn't have that issue on my Sony S770

I had the same issue with my BD65 and some universal titles. It's unbelievably annoying. My "fix" was to temporarily unplug the ethernet cable.

Problem with the 110. Just bought it, and with all my Blu-Rays I have the following problems randomly:

1. Picture Glitch - Looks like a millisecond of white snow on the bottom half of the screen.

2. Audio Drop out - for only about a second and not consistent, sometimes every 10 seconds, sometimes not during an entire hour.

3. Audio garbling - sounds like everything is synthesized for about 3-5 seconds.

At first I thought it may be the HDMI cable, but then I switched it with my DirecTV box and the Directv with the original 110 HDMI worked fine.

I have a Panasonic Plasma GT25 if that helps, no audio equipment as the sound goes through the TV. Any ideas? I am using port savers for the HDMI on the TV, but again when I switched the HDMI cables from the 110 to the Directv box there was no issue. Is this something limited to Blu-ray dvds/1080p content?

It could still be your HDMI cable. Your DirectTV is likely max out at 1080i while BD player will typically send out 1080p and with 3D, it requires even higher bandwidth. So, your DirectTV only needs less than half the bandwidth required for BD player for HDMI cable.

Thinking about buying the 110. The 110/210 manual pdf on the panasonic website seems to be corrupted. Does anyone else have this problem? Is there another place where I can download the pdf?

it must be your computer or adobe acrobat that is messed up. i just opened it from here and it was fine:

I'll try a different browser. chrome on my macbook only downloads about 1 MB.
post #127 of 8458
Yep, works on a different browser. Weird.
Thanks.

I got my BDT110 Thursday.

Since then spent some time experimenting DLNA client functionality. I can get images, music and certain mpeg files (recorded using my sony camcorder) to play via DLNA. But most other mpeg files couldn't be played via DLNA. So far i tried TVersity, TvMobili and PS3 media servers.

On failure to play a mpeg file, my Panasonic blu-ray BDT110 reports that "Cannot connect. Please confirm Network connection and settings"

If anyone else seen the problem and found a work around, please share. Thanks /

Online Panasonic states only the 210 can play MKV (some formats) via USB (and I presume network). However the manual lists MKV support for both the 110 and 210 via USB...

USB devices (up to 2 TB)
DivX® [BDT210_for_Canada] MKV MP3 JPEG/
MPO (3D still picture)


Has anyone tested playing MKV files with the 110 via USB or network?
post #130 of 8458
@abc.123 and Charles I picked my BDT-110 up on Thursday night and I'm LOVING it. Been working since Friday on getting my DIVX and XVID avi's to stream (I thought the 110 handled these files natively, guess I'm wrong in thinking so). Connecting to "network drive" it plays 720p MKV's just fine, 1080p seems to be a different story. They play fine for 15-20 minutes then stutter like mad. When using the DLNA client it doesn't play any of the AVI's, I just get the same error you get. It does, however, play WMV-HD files with a dropped frame here and there (also seems to downmix to PCM 2-channel audio instead of DD/DTS 5.1). I'm currently playing with Wild Media Server and I'm setting it to transcode to WMV on the fly. Unfortunately it's a real pain in the rear end to use since I converted my DVD collection to mostly DIVX/XVID. You have to navigate to a Transcode folder and select the file from there. And if you pause then press play it jumps to a different part of the movie instead of resuming. FF/RW does the same thing, it will FF but when you press play it jumps to a different part of the movie.

So far Wild Media Server has worked the best but still not as functional as I think home streaming should be with a DLNA device. Starting to learn the hard way that DLNA sucks.

Did u try those files on USB flash drive
post #132 of 8458
Nope, don't have a flash drive handy to test it out, sorry. But I can confirm the 110 does MKV's over the network. I imagine it works, but who knows, I thought this thing did AVI's lol.
post #133 of 8458
I'm throwing some files on a portable USB hard drive as we speak to give that a run. Let ya'll know how it turns out in about an hour.

Much appreciated...
post #135 of 8458
I'm considering the DMP-BDT210 but it needs to be able to play DIVX AVI files from the USB Port. It looks like DIVX is only supported on Canadian models according to the manual. The firmware seems to be North American. What's preventing the US Models from playing DIVX files and can the limitation be overcome?

Hmmm glad I asked. Well its off to get a panny now la la la la.

My samsung and sony 3d blu ray players will only play certain formats using DLNA and a usb. Id say pannys are the same way.
post #138 of 8458
No NTFS support, FAT12,16, and 32 only? Ugh, not really down for formatting my USB hard drive to an older technology right now. So no files bigger than 4GB. All the more reason just to stream.

Panasonic would be fools not to incorporate DIVX support to the USA version of their new players. That just seems silly.
post #139 of 8458
Also, with the DLNA client looking towards my Windows Media Player the only thing that plays is WMV, no MKV or DIVX. So it's all up to the support of the DLNA server as to what files this thing will play? And I've noticed not all my MKV's are showing up in the Network Drive folder. Lame lame lame.
post #140 of 8458
Has anyone compared the DMP-BD65 with the DMP-BDT110? I'm currently deciding between the two. Interested in BD/DVD/streaming. I don't have a 3D TV so it is not a priority for me.

Reading through the manual, the only feature I have found that the 65 has that the 110 does not is 7.1 reformatting. Not impt to me since I have a 5.1 setup.

Of course, the 110 seems to be faster and use less power. I assume BD and DVD upscaling is equivalent or better on the 110 than the 65.
post #141 of 8458
Does anyone have the Harmony code for the 210?
post #142 of 8458
The remote is the same as the 110. Try putting that hardware in if you're having trouble. Works fine for my 890. Had to add the Netflix and Skype buttons by the learn command though.

According to Panny web site DLNA plays MPEG and AVC videos only. MKV is just a container. The video inside can be in many different formats. DIVX seems to be Canandian only feature according to the manual.
post #144 of 8458
I just find it strange that it won't play anything but WMV files within the DLNA client. Plays most MKV files from the network drive location though.

I may just stick this in my bedroom and build an HTPC, I was really hoping this would be a decent home theatre solution. But for 67 dollars I shouldn't complain lolz.

I have them both. Get the BDT-110, it will have a slightly longer support lifespan from Panasonic, though they have been very good about supporting older players. The BDT110 has a nicer home UI and the much nicer Netflix 3.0 interface. The BD65 has a very simple Netflix interface that will only display whatever is in your Instant Queue, it does not do any queue management nor can you search/browse for titles.

That's why you should have a dedicated media streaming device. I bought a 210 to play Bluray's and stream Netflix my WDTV Live handles all my MKV's. I have no desire to stream any other format other than MKV's within my network.
post #147 of 8458
What I've heard so far is that the PQ for up-conversion is not as good as the 300 series. Anyone care to confirm that?
Also I remember reading the 105 did not display 4:3 aspects on DVD correctly, and I wondered if this 110/210 series had the same problem.
post #148 of 8458
like movies that are not enhanced for widescreen?
I played the abyss and true lies dvds and they were in 4:3 and not enhanced.

Is there any word on when the 310 will be available? I need to upgrade my blu ray player and the 310 sounds great. A much better alternative to others that have what I'm looking for.

Great, thanks for the info.
