One wonders if, like Netflix, it works properly on the 2012 models.

Ah, ok. See, maybe there is something to that, since you say you did have devices connected and working fine.

I have an older router somewhere. Maybe sometime, when I'm feeling ambitious, I'll hook it up and see if I can get things to connect to it. If the BD also fails then, I'll have to assume it's not the router's fault. Of course if it's NOT the router, I might be completely screwed.

There is no region hack for BD. Someone was selling an enhanced firmware for a while, but noone knows for sure quite how legit they were.

Lost the connection to Youtube from the account in my computer.

I have been asked to post this in this forum which is appropriate to my problem of disconnect.
=============
My setup is: Sony desktop wired to my cable modem and my Linksys router. My Sony 50" TV can be/is served by my Panasonic 110 with a dongle.

For the better part of a year all was fine playing Netflix and Youtube in which I set up an account to which I saved the Youtube programs I wanted to keep. On firing up the 110 it came right on with the connection.

A few weeks ago Netflix asked me to sign in when using the Panasonic 110 at the TV. It took a few tries but finally worked.

Now to Youtube. At the TV it would not accept the sign ins or password that work just fine on Youtube in the computer, nor any other way, until I signed in with my Google sig-in.

Now it shows "My account" but it is empty, not connected to 'my account' on the computer where I saved my stuff.

Though my computer and the 110 are connecting to the router and I can play the offerings Youtube presents on 110, it obviously is not reading any of the saved stuff in the computer where I do the saving anyway.

What puzzles me is where the disconnect occured, was it me, Youtube or the Panasonic 110.

post #7867 of 8460
Hmm that is odd, it to me sounds like the Youtube app is not syncing up. If you can access Youtube from a laptop or anything outside your home network and all your stuff is there I would say it definitely points at the 110.

Maybe contact Youtube and see if they have any type of fix for you.

yeah still not sure what was causing the issue. all i know is the 210 didnt like something in my previous router, modem set up...mayb router firmware or a setting that i never found, i dont know. i was just happy a new router solved the issue...good luck

Actually, region free is already built in. Try this:


Insert a different region disc. When the region message comes up press Stop> 1 > Enter.


Works like a charm on my 210.


Note- I haven't tried it after the last FW update. Hopefully Panny hasn't killed it.

Sure that isn't the DVD remote hack? I have never heard of BD (Blu-ray) being able to be region hacked with the remote, and I have owned every gen of Panasonic except the short lived 50. DVD yes, BD no. I have never seen anyone report a BD hack, either.

Nope, it's the hack for Blu-rays. It's fairly common knowledge on some of the other forums I frequent, very surprising it's unknown around here. In fact, I just tested it again with a couple Region B Masters of Cinema BD's and it's still working fine. In fact, it also worked on the 500 I just got so it should be working on the x20 players as well.


Give it a try.
post #7873 of 8460
Thanks to TI-triodes!

I know STOP and 1 keys.
Which one is Enter?
Please help!

Thanks
post #7874 of 8460
I've got a 110 and have tried that sequence before, and again now. I also am not sure which key is meant by Enter. I've tried various possibilities and have done this with restarting the 110 and without, all to no avail :-(

I have FW 1.80
post #7875 of 8460
I would think that the 'Enter' button refers to the 'OK' button, in the center of the selection buttons (up, down, left and right) since that button is usually for 'entering' different aspects of each menu.
post #7876 of 8460
Does that sequence change player region permanently? Is there limitation how many times you can do this?

Is there similar key sequence for DVD region?
post #7877 of 8460
I just received my 310 from ebay and I tried a few 7.1 movies from the vudu app and notice its only passing 5.1 DD....My PS3 passes all channels.I have everthing set to pcm on the 310 as I have a legacy receiver via HDMI.I'm I missing something here?

Also, any latest words if we will get the 3D update for vudu for 2011 models?

The enter button is the OK button in the center of the direction buttons. It is not permanent, the player reverts back to Region A the next time you load a disc. Every time you load another region disc you must do the sequence with the remote again. I don't know of any limitations, it's always worked when I tried it. I also don't have any idea of DVD hacks. I never tried other region DVD's with it.

One tip- after you press 1, wait until you see "1" flashing in the upper right hand corner of the screen before you press OK (enter). Otherwise it doesn't work.

Thanks to ti-triodes for posting the BD region hack. Actually, this one does come up from time to time in the thread. I think last time was a few months ago. I would suspect a search for "BD region hack" (or similar) should find it.

But it's good info, thanks again!

I agree with the idea of why would companies pay millions for older Blu-Ray players to include the cinavia infection but sadly in my case... I also own a Samsung BD-D5300 Blu-Ray player bought in early 2011 and it was fw "upgraded" this year with cinavia... and the description of the fw update didn't mention cinavia was included.

I remember when Macrovision copy protection came out Video or Video Review magazine mentioned in an article about putting Macrovision on RCA CED videodiscs which had already been discontinued by RCA a year or two before Macrovision appeared.

I don't know about "millions". It's probably less than a couple of man-weeks to add it to the firmware w/regression testing and not much to have the firmware hosted somewhere for download. However, why should they pay anything? What's in it for them??? The eternal gratitude of the content IP holders rolleyes.gif?

No luck here with the one regular dvd (non-blu ray) disc I've tried thus far w/ my bdt110. A region 2 title. I did the delay thing too and made numerous attempts with this disc. I have the latest firmware.

It is a PAL disc, but I would think this would be true of every region 2 title, wouldn't it?

I never tried it with DVD's but I had always assumed it only worked with BD's.

It's millions due to the Cinavia thing being patented so adding it requires Panasonic to pay a license fee for each sold device (and they are required to add the functionality to the 2012 models if they want to keep the Blu-Ray and DVD licenses). The theory here then is that if they would add it to the firmware of the 2011 players then they would have to pay the patent license for all the already sold 2011 players without any gain (since they are not required to do so).

However of course since we don't know what kind of deal they have made with the company behind Cinavia we don't know if they get a license for all their 2011 players included for free with the license they now pay for the 2012+ players. Samsung seams to have added it to their 2011 models according to Betoo9 so they seam to have struck such a deal (or they might use the same firmware for the 2012 players as for the 2011 players).

Or it might be so bad that the Cinavia people are letting the manufacturers have a license discount if they also add it to their 2011 (and older) firmwares since that would spread this plague more thus increasing Cinavias profits (since they also sell licenses for the studios who wants to "protect" their content).

Regarding DVD there is a region free hack here: http://www.avforums.com/forums/blu-ray-dvd-player-multiregion-hacks/1519325-multi-region-dvd-hack-using-harmony-pronto-codes.html, it's only DVD and not BD though.
post #7887 of 8460
If it was millions, I can't see where they'd find an incentive to do it.
post #7888 of 8460
Hi,

Hoping someone can point me in the right direction. I have an Ubuntu box running MediaTomb that is my DLNA server. I have some mkv files that I want to play. Using MediaTomb and DLNA, I can play these files on my Panny ST30 tv, or using my bluray BD75 - they work fine. Using my BD210, I can see MediaTomb, and the files show up as greyed out. When I select the file the player says "cannot play file". I can play these same mkv files on the BD210 using Network Drive fine.

I am at a loss and have been trying to figure out how I can play these files that work fine on my Panny tv, and other Panny Bluray, but will not play on my BD210.

Any help is appreciated!

Panasonic Remote

Just bought a Panasonic dmpbdt210 DVD player from Best Buy with no box or manual. The remote wont work. The display on the DVD player reads SET 1 whenever I hit a button on the remote. I put in a dvd to check it out & hit play on the dvd player & it works. But I need the remote for everything else. What do I do????
post #7890 of 8460
Does anyone know and confirm that the newest v1.80 firmware for the BDT210 and other 2011 Panasonic 3D Bluray players does NOT add Cinavia?
I got a like-new refurbished BDT210 that came with v1.70 firmware and doesn't have Cinavia support.
Want to know if its OK to upgrade to firmware 1.80.
Also is it possible to downgrade to a lower firmware version if needed?
