Thanks for the info. A solution that seemed to work (for now anyway) is that I removed the port saver from the connection to the TV and just plugged in the HDMI cable straight into the TV. Watched another movie last night and no issues. Hopefully this holds.

The 210 box says it will play AVCHD files. Some of the documentaion mentions that you can play these from a SD card.

I have a Panny ZS7 camera that shoots in AVCHD. I tried sticking the SD card in the 210 but it I get a message that "there are no supported files on the card".

The file extension is .mts

What am I missing here?

For AVCHD support, make sure you have the correct directory structure on the SD card or DVD. If you have the SD card right out your camcorder, you should be fine. If you just copied the *.mts file over, it won't work.

Since your ZS7 is a camera, not a camcorder, I'm not sure if it actually creates AVCHD directory structure on SD card.

I put a card in the ZS7 and formatted. I shot a little video and popped it into the 210 and it worked fine.

The camera did indeed create a separate directory and files for pictures and videos on the SD card.

I just browsed to the folder containing the working video and then copied some other .mts files into the exact same folder but the 210 does not recognize those. They were taken with the exact same camera. I would have thought that would have worked.

Seems odd that you can only play the .mts files straight from the camera.

AVCHD directory structure contains different directories and files. Simply copy mts file into it won't work either. AVCHD is a standard which Panasonic helped to create. So, it is no supprise that Panasonic want to strictly enforce that your AVCHD SD card or DVD disc (which has slightly different directory structure) must follow the standard.

You can download an app called MultiAVCHD that will compile multiple video files into a SD memory card directory.

I am not sure what they are trying to prevent or enforce since the .mts files were both created with the same Panasonic camera. There are indeed multiple folders on the card. Since the exact same file type taken with the exact same camera as the working file are together I still can't wrap my head around why this doesn't work.

Thanks and I will check out the app you mentioned!

There are information files in addition to mts video files. So in theory you can name your video titles and other stuff outside of mts files. Just jam a few mts files together does not euqal to AVCHD. AVCHD is a disc format, just like DVD, not a video file format. The video files can be MPEG2 or AVC/H.264 encoded but must be in the resolution AVCHD standard supports.

Again thanks for your clarification. I obviously know little about these. The Panasonic camera is indeed AVCHD so the .mts files that I took with the same camera should be in a resolution AVCHD standard supports.

So based on what I have run into the only way to get the AVCHD files to play on the 210 is to take the SD card from the camera and place directly into the 210.

Apparently putting them on the computer and then putting back on to the exact same SD card even in the exact location they are stored in the original file structure they will not play.

Update:
OK, I think I am figuring out what you are saying,
I found two other folders called "CLIPINF" and "PLAYLIST" that contain files called .CPI and .MPL that match the one video clip I shot with the camera. I am assuming if I can place matching files for the .mts files into those folders theoretically it should play then play them.

Any idea on how to create and add those files to the folders?

Use the app I mentioned above. It will take care that for you.

Awesome!

Already downloaded!

New owner here. Easy setup. Firmware updated with no issues (came with 1.10). So far so good, no issues with DLNA, Home Network, Netlfix (which looks better then my XBOX), and I was able to see media over my network with no issues.

One last thing....absolutely superb picture with this Blu Ray player.

Question: on the color settings it has several options including what I think said Extended and Expanded or something like that. What did you guys use?

I just got it today. Everything is fine except for watching movies from Netflix. Looks like it is going to start and then gives message that at this time this movie cannot be seen. Choose another, but this is true for all the movies. I can watch movies on Vudu and Cinema. Any clue?

Probably due to your internet speed. What's your connection?

Would like a panny with 2 HDMI outputs! Does the 310 have 2 outs? If someone could send me an url to check out the 310, I would be greatly thankfull.

Never mind!! I found a spec page on J & R. Does have 2 HDMI outs. Much thxs folks.

Just got the 210 today. Help! I am trying to connect the 210 to my Mac Airport Express in another room via WiFi. It recognizes my WiFi signal but when I enter the encryption key (Airport ID?) it does not connect. Is the encryption key the Airport ID? Or is it something else? Looking through the manual I couldn't figure it out.
Any direction/solution would greatly be appreciated! Thanks!!

DLNA question:

Does it support WMA LOSSLESS? (See test file in my sig)

It is AT&T Pro, 1 Mbps upstream, 2. Mbps for downstream. I had tried both wireless and direct Internet connections. I can watch moves from other sources such as Vudu.
post #168 of 8458
Any thoughts on the drive tray and transport on these players?
post #169 of 8458
Player looks cool but I find it a bit disturbing no mention of WMA at all in the manual, except that it does not play WMA discs.

I am then guessing it does not play WMA lossy nor WMA lossless over DLNA then? Can someone here test it? There is a WMA lossless file in my sig. Thanks.

Anybody else experiencing blackouts when watching Netflix movies with the BDT210? Happens for a sec every 30 min or so. Never had this problem with the Panny BD-65.

It probably is your internet connection, you can probably stream netflix at that speed but it would have to be stable your not gonna stream any HD quality at 2mbps down and you might not even be getting that speed. IMO

Possibly handshake issue? I have been testing Blu Ray's like crazy and I have yet to see anything like this.

Other sources download may download movie first. Netflix requires 3mbps for SD and 6 mbps for HD.

I have noticed this as well, maybe 2 or 3 times during a movie. Screen goes black for maybe HALF a second. Not a huge deal because it's so brief but I've never experienced it before streaming Netflix on a couple of other devices. I'm also inclined to think it's a handshake thing.

I am talking about STREAMING from NF, not playing BRs.

Doesn't happen on Blurays - only when streaming netflix. My earlier Panny BD-65 never had issues streaming netflix.

I am hoping they can resolve this with a firmware fix. Not a big deal but an issue is an issue that needs to be worked on.

Gotcha...I have watched 5 Netflix movies now without this issue. I know that doesn't help you but so far have not seen what you have.

I have had the 110 for one week. It is terrific...truly a "best" buy. In the Set Up mode for the player, what are the settings that I need for the best quality picture and audio from a blu-ray disc? Also, with a disc in the player, and the "display" (top menu) "on", what settings should I select for the best possible video and audio? I need these settings for 2D, only. I have the LG 50" plasma, and a 5.1 sound system. The LG is 3D...and, I have one pair of glasses + one 3D blu-ray movie (Under the Sea)...however, the 3D does not do much for me and I will not purchase any additional 3D movies. So...2D blu-ray movies shall be the only thing that I shall play on the 110. (I also have the Oppo 83, which is great for my Epson 8100 projector and 120" screen.) Thank you in advance for the settings.

It's asking for your WPA/WEP passcode, not the airport id. Have you attempted to connect any other devices to the airport? If so then you have probably been asked for a security code. That code/string is what you need to enter into the panasonic.

Yep cishida has it right, a quick Google shows these directions, you should be able to see what type of protection the AirPort is using (WEP or WPA) and the proper keycode...

Open AirPort Utility, click Manual Setup
Look for the Base Station menu at the uppermost top of your screen near the Apple icon (+not the base station tab in the center+)
Click the Base Station menu item
Click Equivalent Network Password

Your "key" will be revealed
