Has anyone else had this happen?? :/

no one else has seen this, or heard about this?

It could be, as well as a superior wireless receiver. I consistently get better signal strength on this box than I do on my LG 5600 display, according to the meters that are built into amazon and VUDU.

Your not using HDMI or Optical so the settings don't matter. You will only get 2 ch stereo out of the analog outs.

Today I saw an Avatar 3D blueray extended edition at Walmart for $34 does it mean the exclusive agreement with panasonic ended? And any one can buy it, not from ebay for $80

I just picked up the 110 today from Fry's on sale for $79.99 From what I've been reading everyone seems fairly happy with this player so I'm looking forward to hooking it up tonight.

Wow! And only $5 more than the regular old 2-disc BD+DVD edition!

I suspect that you probably saw the 3-disc Extended Collector's Edition, commonly available in that price range (Amazon has it for $32.49, claiming a $54.99 list price). The agreement with Panasonic supposedly runs until February 2012, supposedly confirmed by a Panasonic press rep in the UK.

Before the rumors start, what you saw was the NON 3-D version. The Bluray Avatar edition does sell for $35 at Walmart but it is NOT the 3D version.

Got my 215 yesterday, hookup and setup was painless. D/L'd the firmware update and away we went. Netflix and Amazon both look great and, of course, it plays those Blu-Rays quite well. Walked my wife through the various features and she grasped them easily and is very happy. Happy wife = Happy Life!

Is that the one that is on the first page of their ad? Also was the Avatar rebate in it?

Yea, you're going to be very happy with your purchase. This has been a very nice little player hooked up to my 42ST30. Not a single problem and my cable, blu-ray and Roku PQ is spot on. Agree with several others that I was quite taken by how good dvd upconversion is on the unit. Very good and I have a OPPO 983 hooked up to my 65" plasma in my HT and the 110 PQ is very comparable. All in all, a good second blu-ray player for me.

question about the Chroma Process setting. Do people on here generally set it to off, normal, or high? On high the picture seems to look to vivid/juiced-up to me.

Your comment regarding the 110 being close in PQ to the Oppo 93 is very interesting. I've been considering making the Oppo the main player in the house (bumping the Panny 85), and I just put the 110 in a spare bedroom.

Can someone please post...what are the best VIDEO settings for 210 for DVD and Bluray? Earlier I got panny BD80, I was more impressed with 80 than 210 for both DVDs and BDs, ofcourse I am running 210 on Out of box settings. There are so many settings in this player comparatively, I am confused what to tweak.

like do other blu-ray players have a "chroma process" that's on automatically? Would it be more normal to turn the chroma process to off or normal?

Does anyone find Panasonic's warranty a little lacking?

1 year parts
90 days labor

Here's a white paper discussing some Panasonic chroma processing. http://uploads.avforums.com/Panasoni...e%20Chroma.pdf

Unfortunately it doesn't link it's discussion to the menu settings used on the 110/210/310 players


The paper discusses all players having to do a chroma upsampling process. So I don't know what to make of the "off" setting.

When I was testing the different settings with a Bluray, I didn't notice much of a difference on a large plasma or a projector setup. A previous poster mentions a vivid/juiced up picture on high (advanced?). I'm curious as to others' observations with the different settings.

Looking forward to joining in on the conversation after setting up our new DMP-BDT210 yesterday. Everything was flawless including the firmware update. Thanks to all who post here because it played a role in our decision. This unit replaces a 3 1/2 year old Samsung BP-1400 that took ages to load and sometimes took several attempts before loading. It still produced a great picture, though.

Both of you need to turn off "super resolution". You can only change this setting during disc playback.

Regarding deep color, that depends on what your display can handle. I think on a tv (versus a computer monitor), you generally leave it off.

I get good results leaving chroma on, but honestly can't see much difference.

Par for the course. Samsung and LG have the same terms. Sony does have a full year warranty. For now. Toshiba is 90/90.

I read somewhere that one of the improvements for the 2011 Panasonics is that their video processing applies not only to disc playback, but also to the streaming content.

Besides reading through 125 pages is there a location that shows the differences between the 110 and the 210?

The 210 adds wireless, touch-free eject and a few audio effects. Wireless would be the main reason to go for the 210. The differences are also clearly indicated in the manual which you can download from panasonic support.

Yeah, it's not great, but my recent experience seems to indicate the warranty may actually be a little better in practice. In August, my BDT300 Blu-ray player died after only 11 months. Even though it was outside the 90 day labor warranty, if I paid to ship the player to Panasonic (which as I recall cost me $14), they would ship me a refurbished player. They sent me a refurbished BDT310, so now I'm good.

The audio effects would be my only concern. I have no interest in the touch-free eject nor wireless features. I will download the manual to check what the audio effects are. I have a new Onkyo 709 that has all of the latest bells and whistles on it.

You won't understand the audio effects simply by reading the manual. Save yourself a few bucks and get the 110/115.

thanks Aaron S, I'm surprised the chroma process settings aren't discussed more on this thread. To my eyes, setting it to "off" outputs the picture without any chroma enhancement. Then "normal" enhances it a moderate amount, and "advenced" enhances the chroma a very high amount.

This one feature " 7.1ch Audio Reformatting" may push me to get the 210 instead of the 110. I have a 7.1 setup.
post #3749 of 8460
FYI, I got a 110 with a package deal at Best Buy for a p65vt30. I got it so I can play the 3d avatar. It works great.

But then I want to try to view mkv files and this is where the panny has issues. First it want to read mkv files ONLY from a dvd-R. I had only +R disks and the unit must read what kind of disk in in to read it. So after I ran out and bought a -R blank and added the mkv files, it finally can see the filenames.
But then I have codec issues.

It appeaars that the 110 has very narrow requirements, where the mkv files ONLY reads from a DVD-R and not DLNA, or USB.
