thanks for the responses.

If you are in the apps and you insert a disc, the player will not auto-start. That was easy.

If you zoom a 2.35:1 movie to fit a 1.77:1 (16x9) screen, then one of two things must occur: Either the image is squeezed (sideways) or the sides are chopped off.

Did you do any cable-swapping while the power was on? Last guy who lost his HDMI had been, before his died. Presumption is that moving HDMI cables about while the power's on is probably Not A Good Idea--at least with Panasonic gear.

Also, the same MKV files that play fine from USB flash ... is not recognized when accessing over DLNA.

Far as I recall, the players do not play mkv over dlna or streaming. Within last few pages there are some lists of what does or doesn't work via the various input methods.
If the machine is saying incompatable then it doesn't like the formatting. Something for sure is up with either your formatting or your player. Since they are so easy to work with try transferring your flash content off to your main system and reformat it to exFat and retry. Am having no issues with flash drive here regardless of what I am doing... (no need for reinsertion on the 210). If you get the flash working then maybe the hard enclosed will work fine..That sucks if not.

I have the Panny DMP-BDT210 and love it very much except for one thing that's driving me nuts. For some reason, almost every .mkv file plays just perfect until almost the end of a movie (an hour or an hour and a half) and then it freezes for a second and then the movie restarts. It does this on almost all .mkv movie files that I try. They are all burned onto DVD and I am playing them from there. I've tried to "google it" and see alot of talk about COMPUTERS with VLC doing this, but not much about dvd players. It's frustrating and the wife is really getting tired of having to guess about the ending of these movies. lol If anyone has any ideas or anything I can try, I thank you very much.

Also, it does not affect DVD that are in the VOB structure.....they play fine.

Well what is the computer users solution? Since it presents in that arena also it doesn't sound like a player issue but more like an authoring/burning issue. Sounds like burning/authoring program and the settings therein causing issue.

Thank you for trying to assist. The solution to the computer user happened to be in a forum regarding VLC player and their answer was to go into the preferences of the VLC program and "untick" something called "ordered Chapters" and "chapter codecs". I didn't know of anything similar in the dvd player settings that I was aware of.

I did ask my son who sends us dvd's to watch in this .mkv format....there is nothing that he is aware of that would keep it from playing to the end. The strange thing is that we have a JVC XV-BP1 in our bedroom which will play the exact same dvds (and .mkv files) all the way thru to the end without issue.

I realize this is probably asking too much as there are probably lots of things that could be the problem. I was just wondering if any other 210 user had any similar experiences and or solutions. Thanks for the help. I do appreciate it.

Hi all. Common issue: Need a BR player with 2 HDMI out to handle 3D but AVR not 3D. Looks like I need the 310.

I already have a Panasonic BR player, DMP-BD60, so I'm familiar with the brand.

I don't stream anything and don't care about anything other than playing BR and occ DVD. BR playback is BR playback, and bitstream to my AVR is all I need. So I don't see paying hundreds more for the additional capabilities of an Oppo.

I know that if there are issues, they will be found here, but I'm asking if anybody would be willing to give me at least a keyword or keywords to do searches with.

Thanks to all who might help.

I hv the 310...Im using just as your going to use...I hv had ZERO Issues....As a BR Player, i dont think you'll find Any
Real Issues as far as thats concerned, but for Streaming their seems to be More Problems....

You will be very pleased with the increased speed of the 310 vs. the 60.

hi...i have a seagate goflex home network drive which is plugged into my router...i have transferred some mkv video files onto it...the bdt110e blu ray player can see the drive and films but says cant play...any idea why?....the files play on my pc from the nas drive no problem and on my ps3 and they played before on the blu ray player directly from my pc..all help much appreciated

post #4451 of 8458
Update: USB external hdd's do not work here for me on 210 regardless that they power and light up. Tried one enclosed in a Speed Stream usb3 formatted as exFat-32mb allocated (quik format) and then a Freeagent Go with a exfat-128kb allocated (full format). Read elsewhere that it likely that hdd's use different drivers than a stick and that it would call for a player/system hack if no such driver built into player to support them. Closest thing to this is in hacking the wii to do games off externals but that is not likely to happen here on a BR player..
Guess I'll look back searching the thread to see if anyone has been successful..

Update: oops correction..Got the Speed Streem drive working by way of giving it more power via conecting to laptop usb. The usb cable that came with it has a secondary power/usb cord branched off of it for such cases. Apparently even though there is some power there off the player it is not enough. So I guess I need a powered hub..

It won't play high bit rate MKV files over the network. Sometimes re-encoding them works.

Are they greyed out? I think that means that the player knows that another input method such as disk or usb can play them but that the one your using can not. Again I can't recall the players being able to do mkv via dlna or streaming so likely not via network drive neither. I do know vob works beautiful at a full original quality via either dlna or streaming (forget which) as I did it but vob's are not single files when bringing them off disks to drives. Maybe there is a merge tool for vob-to-vob?? That would satisfy many into getting quality streaming.
If mkv could be played off my gigaport usb port on router that would be luvely but have yet to hear of it..

kjg....

I am very pleased with my 310. Have it for exactly the same reason. I've had several Panasonic players as well as a PS3. The 310 is faster and for me I've had no problems with internet streaming. I know you daid you don't plan to use it for that but after you play a bit with its capability you just might change your mind.

Hi...thanks for replies...the files are not greyed out...i can click on them but comes up cannot play...as i said i could stream them from my pc to the blu ray over my router and they played ok....now wont work at all from seagate drive to blu ray player...if i have to convert whats best to convert too....some of the films are 3D mkv files...cheers mark
post #4456 of 8458
I also tried to play an avi film from the saegate nas and again the blu ray player said cannot play...am stumped
post #4457 of 8458
^^^ Panasonic won't stream avi. It won't stream mkv either. So you may as well give up on that front. If you wanted a file streamer, you bought the wrong player.

Well regardless greyed out or not these players are known to only support the mkv's basically only via usb and disk far as I can tell and it's a no on avi as well. There are many places throughout this thread you might be able to search out and put together a full comprehensive list of which input methods allow what..is as confusing as all get out unless your an elephant with great memory. Seems if you want a format that'll work on all methods soley by player support it would be avchd or wmv. Otherwise, and as you apparently did with your pc-to-br streaming, you can acheive decoding of them formats by the pc server softwares like servio, etc. to do conversion on the fly. In other words it wasn't the player decoding those container formats really.. it just played what the pc decoded. Most favored container for reasons of quality, compatability between equipment, size, and features is the mkv wrapping up h.264 video and either dolby digital AC3 streams or a combination of AC3 & AAC DTS. You can also just pass through the original mpeg streams to be in the container supposedly untouched and deal with big sized files. Beauty of that for those with large capacity dirves is that it only take from like less than 2 minutes to 6 or 7 to strip it out of a container and put it in an mkv as such which is a big difference compared to encoding to h.264 anywhere from about 20 minutes to 4 hours for a full length movie.... It would be a definate advantage to be able to leave your drive on router and allow anyone on network work with the files over the network with a quik passthrough conversion method. I think that's what most are after..

ok thanks for info....if i just buy a normal external hard drive and then connect to panasonic bdt110 via the usb connection will that then play the wmv and avi films?

post #4460 of 8458
Update: After trying many many different things to try to fix my constant audio drops with my 310 I finally figured out what the problem was. It was my receiver (Yamaha 1800) I didn't notice that I had the hdmi video check set to "yes" in the 1800s settings. I turned that off and have not had any audio drop outs again. I dont totally understand as to why this has happened when everything else I have hooked up to the 1800 has never had this problem. Just must be my 310 I have and my 1800. Anyways if anyone else has the same components as me and have audio drop outs try this. Thanks again for everyone's help here. Now to get some 3D glasses for my Mitsubishi 65-838 and I will be set. Any recommendations on some?
post #4461 of 8458
So what that do when checking off? Does it not do any processing or upscaling type procedures but yet still passes it on? You need it passed for the 3d right? ..confused here as usual.
post #4462 of 8458
I haven't tried it, but I had previously bookmarked a post where someone posted how they got mkv to work for them.

Just pulled the trigger on a 310, and I believe 3D can't pass through a receiver unless maybe if the receiver is 3D capable. That's why I'm buying the 310, so I can run one of it's two HDMI directly to the TV for 3D and the other to my non-3D but otherwise excellent Denon 4308ci receiver.

Can't say why I'm even doing that, since I havent seen anything in 3D that I enjoyed all that much .... 3D glasses over glasses ... bleh.

Anybody have any problems with sync doing this split thing?

Choosing between the x10 models can be distilled into two simple questions:

Do you need built in wireless? Yes--get the 210 for the wi-fi.

Can your receiver handle 3D? If not--get the 310 for the additional HDMI output.

Otherwise, the 110 is no different in any major respect; same remote, same Avatar eligibility, same picture quality. The rest is fluff.

so what do you mean Can your reciever handle 3D??3D what --Video.Most only go through thier reciever for the decoding of the sound field and just pass through Video signal untouched.So why the two HDMI outputs??

With video processing as well as 1.4a 3D compatible HDMI switching in newer receivers more are going to go from source to receiver to video display. For those with receivers unable to pass 3D having dual HDMI outs solves this issue.

I've done the same thing with my 310 and a Pioneer Elite VSX-94 receiver. No synch issues but I am getting regular audio drops. I've had a few dozen on Captain America, The Lion King and Beauty and the Beast 3D editions. I don't seem to hear them on regular 2D Blu-rays...

Anyone have any thoughts on why I'm getting audio drop outs when hooked up this way?

oh yea yea.. I wasn't thinking clearly as I know full well enough about the older/less than 1.4 hdmi or whatever number it is not passing the full 3d. For some dumb reason was thinking along lines of needing the two seperate outputs going to tv..lol umm duh that would be like picture in picture.... One of the reasons some might not want to do it this way is that many use their avr receiver as the main hdmi hub/switch to where the tv never leaves it's hdmi 1 selection and all the other components like cable or games plug directly into avr with video passing or being upscaled for big display by receiver. Thats the way I like it.. display should be a display. Maybe some receivers can be told to not pass the video through hdmi on one imput and but pass it on another
post #4468 of 8458
With the Yamaha 1800 you have what they call hdmi monitor out check. What it does is checks what resolutions your tv can handle and reports back to the receiver. So then it only puts out the resolution it finds when upscaling. What I did was turn it to "skip" and from here on out its a manual adjustment. I dont use my 1800 to upscale anything anyways. So with one less check or process from one of my components in my chain of signals is one less hiccup. So in my case no more audio drops.
post #4469 of 8458
So I decided to pick up the 210 yesterday. I"m done with Oppo players . I have two of their older dvd players (971H and 981HD), and nieither of them can play a disc without a ton of vibration and noise. Maybe I just got really unlucky twice, but I'm just not giving them any more money.

Anyway, just starting to play around with the the the 210, and have found one annoying issue. I can't access internet services when a blu-ray disc is in the player. I am using a wired connection, and the player says the connection is good, but I get a connection error when accessing internet services. However, if I pull the disc out, then internet services works once again.

Lastly, one question. Am I better off setting the player to output at 1080p, or keeping the player on auto and letting my Sony KDS-60A3000 do the scaling?

I found the internet connection works fine with the 210. I am using the wifi. I would give oppo another chance. the oppo blu ray players are top of the line. I own the oppo 93. I did have the 83 as well.

probably best to set the player to 1080P.
