I don't mind having to burn to AVCHD 3D disc or create an AVCHD 3D file sturcture on a USB stick.
It just really puzzles me that my 3D blu-ray player recognises the video as 3D but only plays it back in 2D.
This just seems stupid!

Is the TV set to auto detect? Maybe it needs to be manually set to 3D. The manual seems to imply that only 3d stills can be shown on page 6 but on 7 it says 3D video but also seems to say that you need to touch the 3d button on the remote while it's playing pg 20. .

I'm not familiar with the sony camera's features but I have a panny camera that takes 3D (my wife was out at the grand canyon the other day and monument valley tomorrow so I'm hoping for some 3D stuff to watch). I usually either put the SD/usb stick in HDTV's slot or hook the camera to the HDTV, mine has a micro hdmi connection.

I've used my WDLive to stream 3D movies in mkv containers to the HDTV but I have to set the tv manually..... I so seldom use the Pamny 210 for network streaming stuff. But I will be using it for the NASA TV via UStream on Sunday night for the Mars landing at 11:30pm ET.

I am playing MP3 files via a USB thumb and for some reason, it is being fussy about which ones it plays. Some folders are in black text and not accessible, some folders are accessible but won't play. I even have have some files in a particular folder that won't play but the others in that same folder play fine.

All files play fine on my computer. Before I tried the USB, I had the same experience using a CD with the same MP3's on it. I thought maybe the bitrate was too high, but that wouldn't explain the mixture of playable/non-playable files in the same foilder, as they are all the same bitrate. I also thought maybe it was the file size, but I have big ones that play fine and small ones that don't play.

Yes; I tried searching this thread first.

Just last night, my DMP-BDT210 started flickering between a static screen and the player's menu screen. I would turn it on, and as soon as it came up, the flickering started. I need to do some more testing, to make sure it isn't my receiver, where the HDMI goes through to get to the TV, but has anyone else had any issues?

That sounds HDMI related, I have found my 110 very picky with HDMI cables. I had no issues on my Onkyo TX-NR1008 but had lots of problems with a TX-NR509 and Denon AVR1312. Check and make sure the HDMI cable has not come a little loose.

hi guys,
newbie on this forum. which I found in a desperate attempt to solve my problems. Nothing else worked so you are my last resource I guess..
here it is:
I would like to play .mkv files from PC through network sharing with BDT310 model, since they are too big for a FAT32 flash memory. I cannot use the DLNA as my PC runs Win XP but on the manual it says is possible to use a standard the network share for non DLNA systems.
So I did follow Panasonic instructions on their website: everything fine with setting up apart from the fact that my BD player does not find the shared folder on my PC: PC IP address is correct, BD player internet connection works fine both wireless and wired, tried to connect to PC also wired same problem. username and pswd are the same I use when I login on my PC, only 2 concerns:
1. Oo player settings do I have to enter only the name of shared folder, regardless of his location on C:? not all the path? does the folder have to be in C:/ by default?
2. for some reason when I login on my PC I do it on the domain from my employer who set up access restriction on the pc for when I connect to their network, i.e. domain/username, instead of username only I use when I login on my physical machine. On that domain I am not admin so cannot create shared folders. Then I did it by logging in on my physical machine as admin but when I access the folder from the other domain this folder does not show the "shared" icon anymore (with hand): might this prevent the BD player to access the folder? I have tried to access a shared folder on the admin account as well using its username and pswd but BD player cannot connect either
Any ideas why my player cannot connect to the shared folder? thanks a lot!

I'm trying to get output from the RCA Analog jacks and HDMI at the same time for separate Zones on my amp. The second zone for my outside speakers require analog input though the primary zone is using HDMI. I've done searches and gone through the manual and can't seem to find this setup. I hope that it's possible on my 210. Any help is appreciated. TIA

  • The troubleshooting in the manual says the same thing.
  • I checked the manual further which refers me to a URL The manual makes as point to says the site is in English only, and yet its in Japenese only!! Useless.
  • Panasonic support - also is useless. I wrote them on another matter - over one week to respond.


So this forums is my only hope!

Is there a trick to get the 210 to recognize a Windows 7 shared folder?


I do not have Windows media server (or equivalent) setup ( which is what I assume the DLNA section is for). I just want it see my shared music folder (whihc is what I thought Network Shared folder is for).


P.S When I selected DLNA to test it out, it did see my conneted Windows 7 computers - as well as user account - so it does sees my machine and my settings!

I have same same issues but with win Xp, same thing though: I do not have Windows media server setup I just want it access Network Shared folder. here an explanation:

I can only get an output from the RCA jacks when I'm not playing a DVD. In other words, CD, MP3, Pandora, etc. I haven't figured out how to juice these jacks during Blu-Ray playback.

It's an old tric, but you have to turn off 24p when using the analog outs..

S~
post #8021 of 8460
Interesting. I'll give that a try.

Not that I'll notice the difference between downmixed DTS HD or 24P versus 60i!

Or use a digital-to-analog converter (the digital output is active during 24p output over HDMI, but not the analog outs).
post #8023 of 8460
I tried this and it didn't work.

However, even with what I consider pretty good speakers (Boston Acoustic VR-975's), I can't tell the difference between downmixed DTS-HD (to DTS) and PCM. Again, I am only running two channels.

So it probably doesn't matter anyway.

DMP-BDT110 with latest firmware.
I can't get the Alien Anthology USA Region (BD) to play. I tried Alien and Aliens discs and both try to load and then basically drop to the player's settings menu.
At one point I got Alien disc to play yet about half-way through (maybe at a layer break if they exist on BD discs), it started pixelating and failed for that one chapter. Every other chapter seemed to play fine.
Later when I tried to recreate the issue with the same disc, the disc refused to load with a copyright error initially. Then sometimes it would load to a "Resume Play: Yes|No" that blinked off the screen and dropped back to player settings menu.
I got the Alien Anthology BD replaced (will never use Fry's again) and the replacement discs were even worse if that's possible.
Per Fox Studio's instructions, I did every troubleshooting step imaginable. I also worked with Panasonic to troubleshoot. I can't get the discs to play on my DMP-BDT110.
I took the discs to a local BestBuy and they played immediately and beautifully on a Samsung player.
I can play many other DVDs and BDs on my DMP-BDT110 - even rented ones.
Has anyone had any experience with these issues?

Hi , i purchased a panasonic tx-p42ut50b and a bdt110 blu ray player last week . i set it all up and everything was working fine . i connected them to internet and done all the updates aswel.

however last night i decided to change the hdmis over and thread the cables through the wall. after this i am getting a signal through my sky box in hdmi 1 , but no signal from the blu ray in hdmi 2 ! i am however getting the sound from the blu ray through my optical cable which is into my amp ( blu ray is not through amp as it is not 3d compatible) .

I have checked the hdmi cable is ok by putting it into my xbox360 and it works perfectly . i have checked the hdmi on the tv by putting the sky box back through it , and tht plays perfectly !

to make things even more frustrating i got my old tv back out , a 5 year old samsung . i reset the blu ray players settings and plugged into old tv and i get a perfect picture !! so i then swapped back to new tv and nothing !! i went through the same proces again of resetting blu ray player and connecting to new tv . and still no signal !!! really dont know what to do as the blu ray player is obviously working as it plays on old tv , and tv is obviously not faulty ?!

any help here much appreciated !!

Sounds like you're taking the logicial steps toward isolating the problem, and HDMI connections can be pretty finnicky. In the settings for the BD player, is the HDMI Audio Out set to OFF? The 110's owners manual on p.32 says to do this, though I don't know if this has anything to do with your problems; can't hurt to try it. Can you try using a different HDMI port on the back of your TV for the BD player connection. Also, make sure your a/v devices are turned off when changing out the HDMI cables, since handshake problems are very common. I can't think of any other possibilities. Good luck.

thanks for the reply , tried all this . still nothing and after a while on the phone with panasonic tech help he told me to return it as it was clearly faulty . already another one in the post from the seller and mine is getting picked up on monday .

you still have the player set to the old tv? are you using HDMI on the old set? or compsite cables? there is a setting on the player.. I forget which one.. perhaps someone else can chime in. or do a complete reset?

Was plugged in using hdmi on both Tvs . Indie the full reset to get it to work to the old tv . Tried tht with the new tv aswel and still no video picture . Boxed up and getting picked up on Monday ! Sick of trying now . Spent hours on it !

You're talking about network share on the unit?

I always found the best way was to use IP addresses. Second you NEED a user name and password, it didn't like Anonymous as a sign on.

Hello all, hopefully you could help me out, as I've searched and did not find an answer. I can't get 5.1 audio on any title that has 5.1 available streaming Netflix through my 210. The hdmi goes directly from the 210 into my tv while the audio is going optical through my Pioneer VSX-1014TX. The Pioneer does not have HDMI inputs.All the audio is coming from my 5.1 speaker set up. I just get stereo from Netflix, no 5.1.

The audio for Netflix streaming only comes out in stereo even if I select 5.1 in the Netflix menu for that particular movie, an example is Thor. If I play a blu ray in the 210, the audio comes out automatically in 5.1. If I play a standard dvd, it will also play in 5.1. I have tripled checked everything, and even deleated my 210 from Netflix, then re-entered everything, called Netflix ( no help there ) and still every movie that has 5.1 from Netflix only comes through in stereo. Again, blu rays and dvd's play just fine in 5.1, but not Netflix. Thanks in advance for any help.

UPDATE I changed the audio output in the 210 to PCM, and still the same....stereo only frown.gif Tried bitstream again...still stereo frown.gif

I'm actually surprised that your television will handle DD+ and turn it into stereo (if that's what's happening--it's possible that BD player is sending it stereo). In general, HDMI devices (like you BD player) ask the downstream device what kind of audio it can output; by HDMI rules it cannot send it anything else. Your television will say that it can output 2.0 or 2.1 channel sound and that's what the BD player has to mix for it. HDMI is intended to be routed through your AVR if you're going to be using it for sound.

If your AVR can only handle optical S/PDIF, you should run the TOSLINK cable from the BD player into it and not from the television. Make sure that you go into" Setup->Player Setup->Audio->Digital Audio Output" on the BD player and set "Dolby D/Dolby D+/Dolby TrueHD" and "DTS/DTS HD" to "PCM" (it couldn't bitstream DD+, TrueHD or either flavor of DTS HD through S/PDIF anyway)..

Hi Michael. thanks for replying. I guess I was not clear in my original post. I'll fix that. On my 210, the optical for audio goes from the 210 into my Pioneer reciever. And the HDMI cable from the 210 goes into my tv, as there is not an HDMI connection on my reciever. All the audio is coming from my 5.1 speaker set up. I just get stereo from Netflix, no 5.1. BUT, when I play a blu ray or dvd on the 210, then I get 5.1 audio. So I know the cableing is all correct. Just something I'm missing in Netflix set up ? And yes, I do manually select 5.1 if available on a particular movie like Thor for example.

Re-reading your first post I can see that I misinterpreted it--sorry. Try changing the "HDMI Audio Output" setting to "OFF" (on the same screen as the bitstream/PCM settings). It can probably only mix digital sound one way or the other and if it has to send it to your television it's probably going to mix the least common denominator. Also turn off bitstream since it can only bitstream basic DD and basic DTS over optical (given that, it would probably ignore it anyway if you turn off HDMI audio out).

I have the HDMI audio off in the 210. Tried turning it on for the heck of it, still no luck. So, HDMI audio is off, and tried switching the bitstream to PCM and still no luck. Just stereo frown.gif

Well, I'm just about out of ideas. You're sure that you're enabling 5.1 sound in the title's "Audio and subtitles" sub-menu (in the Netflix UI)? That'd be the default if you were going HDMI through a 5.1 capable AVR but I'm not sure for your set-up.

Actually, now that I think about it, Bitstream is probably the proper setting. S/PDIF can't handle greater than stereo PCM. In order for you to get digital surround, the BD player needs to convert DD+, TrueHD, DTS HD HR and DTS HD MA into basic DD and DTS for your AVR. (Also, there's a little table next to the specifications in the 110/210/310 manual that I'm looking at under the heading "Audio information" which would indicate that you should select Bitstream for optical out or you'll get downmixed 2.1 channel PCM).

The manual explicitly says to set "HDMI Audio Output" to "OFF" in your situation:
Quote:
HDMI Audio Output
This setting selects whether or not to output audio from HDMI.
  • Select “Off” when the TV is connected to this unit via an HDMI terminal, and this unit is also connected to other devices, such as an amplifier/receiver via an OPTICAL terminal.

As I promised a while ago, I finally measured and compared both PS3 and BDT110 output. I was using HCFR and i1 Display LT probe. Quickly comparing results it seems they both output the same gray scale, gamma and gamut (even on lower saturation levels. I measured 0%, 25%, 50% and 75% saturation points too).

However after using both of them a long while I still feel that PS3 gives a slightly nicer looking image. Motion is definitely different looking (PS3 is smoother) and skin tones tend to look slightly more saturated and detailed in PS3 sometimes. What puzzles me is that because both units measure the same output for grayscale and colors howcome there can be sometimes so obvious differencies in resulted picture? Maybe motion and detail is from that PS3 simply pulls out 24p frames out of the disc without doing unneccessary deinterlacing or any other processing but difference in skin tones (saturation) is confusing because I think it should show in measurements.

Yes, all those that you had mentioned, bitstream on and hdmi audio off is what my original settings were, and currently are. And I have selected in Netflix menu for the appriate titles 5.1. I know that I did have 5.1 from Netflix when I initially set it up about 6 months ago. There was a firmware update, which I did about 1 month ago. maybe that killed my 5.1. Oh well, unless someone has the secret to unlock my problem, I guess I'll just let my Pioneer reciever decode it into Dolby Pro Logic frown.gif Michael, thanks for your help.

It could also be that Panasonic forgot to support 5.1 over toslink when using the software players (i.e, apps etc). Anyone else even tried 5.1 over optical for anything else than BD and DVD?
