Where have you heard May? If the May estimate is based on the cnet article, keep in mind that they also said March/April street date for the 110/210 IIRC. I read in this thread or the other Panny thread that the target ship date was 3/25 for the 310. Here's hoping it's sooner rather than later and it has some additional upgrades besides the dual HDMI output. $50 for that and nothing else would be disappointing. . .

I think that I read it at the official panasonic site.

HDMI 1.4a was the latest standard for 3d, for instance my Onkyo receiver says - HDMI Version V1.4a (supports 3D video and Audio Return Channel)


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HDMI

HDMI 1.4a was released on March 4, 2010 and adds two additional mandatory 3D formats for broadcast content, which was deferred with HDMI 1.4 in order to see the direction of the 3D broadcast market.[114][115] HDMI 1.4a has defined mandatory 3D formats for broadcast, game, and movie content.[114] HDMI 1.4a requires that 3D displays support the frame packing 3D format at either 720p50 and 1080p24 or 720p60 and 1080p24, side-by-side horizontal at either 1080i50 or 1080i60, and top-and-bottom at either 720p50 and 1080p24 or 720p60 and 1080p24.[115]

Oh I missed the a behind 1.4 that's why I was confused with your question and I don't know the answer. Ask Panasonic.

I'm confused. Which ones play divx files? The US ones or Canadian ones?

Can somebody that has the US 110 please check and see if it plays divx files on either DVD-R or USB?
post #426 of 8458
Chalk up another satisified 210 owner.

I haven't really played too much with it, but the 2D to 3D conversion worked much better expected and the BD playback has been excellent so far.

One nit is that requires the wireless SSID to be transmitted (can't key in the name), but there may be a workaround that I haven't discovered yet.

The menus seem well organized, the response and load times are quick...in short, good value for $$ so far..

For the BDT210 and BDT310 Canadian models support DivX playback, but US models do not !

For the BDT110 neither Canadian models nor US models support DivX playback.

DivX playback will be available on all models with the upcoming enhanced firmware from ***************** !

On the 210 has anyone tried enabling the "DMC" mode which allows it to function as a "controllable DLNA Renderer"? This would enable Win 7's "Play To" functionality or for me the 210 would show up as a "zone" in JRMC and allow me to push files to it like a fancy external video/sound card.
post #429 of 8458
Here is an email from support about the 310 release date.

Dear Valued Customer

The DMOP-BDT310 should be released between late April and early May 2011.

We hope this information is helpful to you. Thank you for contacting Panasonic.

I tried on my 110 and it works. But the player support very few formats and your Win7 PC will have to do on-the-fly conversion for most videos. The result is not that good (conversion takes HD material and converts into SD).
Besides, once you enable DMC, your player will be on 'Quick Boot' mode automatically. It will use more power when you're not using it.

Does the 310 really have 2 hdmi outputs similar to the 300? Does it have 7.1 analog or only 2 ch? What about build quality. The 300 is reasonably well built. I bought a 300 2 weeks ago at best buy. Wondering if I should return it and wait for the 310. I paid $200 for the 300.

I have a receiver that cannot pass through 1080p and can only do 5.1 PCM through hdmi. I am considering players with two hdmi outputs. 300 has it. Oppo 93 has it.
post #432 of 8458
Yes, the 310 has 2 HDMI outs.

Got my 210 a day or so ago. Been watching Pirates of the Caribbean on it, and the PQ is amazing. AQ is acceptable, but I have hearing issues currently and I don't have the best of setups.

I would argue this is one of the best players on the market, except for a few things:
1. No sleep option whatsoever, it needs to be added in a FW update.
2. The streaming stuff is slow, very slow, just navigating the screen seems to take an eternity.
3. There is no way to adjust video and audio settings without stopping the film, going into menu, adjusting, launching the film (going through adverts and so forth), and then checking to see if the change is better/worse and adjusting thusly. It is annoying, and just doesn't really make any sense to me why that is that way.

I will keep messing around with settings and digging through menu's, I really wish this had a sleep function.
post #434 of 8458
I know you can press the OK button to get an on-screen keyboard, but how do you get the number keys to enter as letters?
post #435 of 8458
You navigate the keyboard with the arrows and press enter on the number/letter you need and move on to the next one.

post #436 of 8458
Since the Canadian version plays DIVX, can I buy it from Canada for use in the US?
post #437 of 8458
Probably not. BDs would be OK, but the streaming services most likely would not work.

When a disc is playing, hit Display button on your remote, you will see a menu to change audio and video settings.

You can't do it in quick setup, but you can do it in the network menu. Also, you can stop broadcasting the SSID after you setup the player.

What do people set as Black Level Control? Lighter or Darker?
post #441 of 8458
I leave mine set to light.

I've got a bdt100, 300, and 85. Picked up a 210 the other night at BB, had a 12% off coupon and some reward points certificates to use up so got it less than online. I have to say I've compared the 300 and 210 back to back using Avatar and Ironman. Have two copies so was able to compare right away back and forth. IMO the 210 PQ is amazing and a notch above the 300 It's brought my 58vt25 to a new level! Tried the 210 on my gt25 in the bedroom and was still impressed over the 100. Audio quality seems to be crisper especially on dialogue through my Pioneer Vsx-32. On Ironman when he communicates with Jarvis during the first test flight scene it's more distinct and suit parts are more distinguishable. I've watched several blu rays and DVDs over the past few days. Still impressed, don't think it's the placebo effect! It really is a step in the right direction for Panasonic!!

My 210 has started going to black every couple of minutes. The HDMI cable is new but should it suspect? Anything else I should look at?

Thanks!

Sure. Two days of watching has been fine. Today, the video started going off every two or three minutes for just a second, and then comes back on.
Doesn't matter if it's a DVD or Veira cast. The audio doesn't fail at all. Nor does the Internet connection.

The HDMI cable is right out the pack from Amazon.

Hope that helps.

Do you have an extra HDMI cable to test? Hooked straight up to display? Tried a different input on display? Have you messed with any of the settings from default?

Light unless your blacks suck on your display.
post #447 of 8458
I beleive that the lighter/darker control is related when you use conposite and not HDMI.
if you are using HDMI. dont worry about it.

I jiggled the connection and it started going on/off very fast. Wouldn't stay on or off. Tried another cable and got no picture at all. I borrowed my son's xbox hdmi cable and it seems ok now.

Are some HDMI cables rated higher than others? It seems odd that one in current use would fail, while the xbox cable (it is labeled as such) would work.

Are far as settings go...I did not change anything.
post #449 of 8458
Ok, I'm having just a bit too much fun with my 3 hour old 210.
Can anyone tell me what the default setting is for:
Display button - Video, Advanced Settings, Detail clarity - I think the default was off, but it might have been 1.

Thanks in advance.

p.s. Which is the closest to an ISF calibrated TV - Cinema or normal on the 210?
post #450 of 8458
Guys would these players be compatible with WD-65735 TV and what shall I need besides 3d glasses and what kind?
