I think that the OEMs implement Cinavia in players mainly because AACS licensing requires it for devices released after February of this year. I don't see Panasonic spending money to add it to an older BDP.

My understanding is that the licensing date (from Feb. 2012 on) determines if cinavia support is required. Player models licensed prior to that date are not required to support cinavia. My existing players look better to me every day . . . .

jpg files not viewable (on udf formated disks )

I've burned a mix of pictures and videos from my digital camera onto a blu ray disk.
But when I try to view it the player says that there is no compatible content.
Why would it consider jpg files not compatible?
I have not tried iso format because some video files are over 2Gb and so need to use udf.

Without going through 275 pages of info, I was was wondering how in gods name do you get .mkv's to stream to this player via DLNA? This I have tried Tversity as well as Mezzmo and cant seem to get these to play. I can however play mp3 through those services but he .mkv seem to be a problem. I was under the impression via the manula that this could take the stream of .mkv's Thnaks.

Hi, I too can confirm that Pana 110 doesn't have cinavia on the firmware ver. 1.88......
post #8226 of 8458
@Firefly: A lot of discussion about MKV and DLNA in this thread, though not so much lately. If I have time when I get to a PC (Wed or Thu) I'll see if I can find relevant posts for you. No promises, though.

Briefly: This player WILL play MVK natively through its Network Drive feature. It is picky about container and stream formats (must be AVC compliant).

Through DLNA it natively plays MPEG2 (or TS) streams. If you play MKV files through DLNA, your DLNA server will have to unpack (demux) it and if necessary transcode to MPEG2. Some servers will do that, others won't. In all cases will it hurt picture quality, and is not recommended.

Again, lots (LOTS!) of detail posted about this previously in this thread.

I have used both features extensively, but it takes some effort to get it working. Many people decided it's not worth the trouble.

DMP-BDT215 Darkens When Room Darkens

Hi Gang,

I have a Panasonic DMP-BDT215 player. It is hooked up to a Panasonic GT30. When I play a movie and turn the lights down the TV dims (compensates for the loss of light).
I have not noticed this before, but had not used this player much. I do not believe that it is the TV.
I looks through the threads and in the setup menu but cannot find anything.
I'm hooked up to the TV with a HDMI straight from the player to the TV.
Anybody see this before.

I have never heard of this with any BluRay player. But you do know that your plasma can suffer from fluctuating brightness? But that wouldn't explain the entire movie dimming when you turn down the lights. Are you sure it's not just seeing better black levels and shadow detail with the lights dimmed (as expected)?
post #8229 of 8458
Nope. I turned down the lights (with my wife watching) and it dims (Like A Bose radio does when it gets dark).
I looked for an auto dimming feature but cannot find it.

Sounds like this is more an issue with your GT30 (I have the same set). The GT30 has a "C.A.T.S." setting in the picture menu that adjusts the screen brightness based on the amount of ambient lighting in the room (p.49 in your owner manual) You'll need to go into your picture menu and make sure that you have C.A.T.S turned off. I have the 110 version of your BluRay player, and have not experienced the problem you described - that's why I suggest looking at your C.A.T.S setting - let us know if this helps.

I don't know if this has been discussed or not or if its a known issue but my 210 occasionally crashes while playing a BD. It happened a while back while watching the Dark Knight and it happened again last night while watching Hugo 3D. The only common factor that I've noticed is that in both cases it was decoding DTS HD MA. In both cases, the screen will go blank and the player seems to shut off. A few seconds later, the player comes back on and the movie automatically resumes 10 or so seconds past the point at which it crashed. Rewinding it works and the scene that it crashed in the middle of will play just fine the next pass through. In both cases the discs were brand new and there were no marks at all on them. Again, I just wonder if this is a firmware problem related to the DTS HD MA?

Then I successfully controlled my device using a laptop or iPxx device thanks to Fulltopuk as well as TouchControl after some tweaks on HTTP POST made by its developer.


My TouchControl device layout has been designed and is available at that site, if needed: http://www.touch-ir.com/. I have no affiliation to TouchControl other than I am a very impressed user (more on that in this post http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...5#post21491535).

The technical details on the command format are as follows (again thanks to mdavej and XARiUS):
  • Host: An IP address specific to your device. I went with a static address 192.168.1.201
  • Port: 80
  • HTTP POST as follows:

    POST /WAN/dvdr/dvdr_ctrl.cgi? HTTP/1.1

    User-Agent: MEI-LAN-REMOTE-CALL

    Host: 192.168.1.105

    Content-Length: [length]

    cCMD_RC_[command].x=100&cCMD_RC_[command].y=100

    Where you would replace [command] and [length] with the following depending on the action needed:

    NOTE: Please note that STOP does not work on my DMP-BDT110 and I am looking for a command for the Display button. Also, if anyone knows of any Status commands, that would be nice to know as well.

My BDT 110 has started to skip & freeze on the last 2 discs I've put in, one a blu ray the other a DVD. It was about an hour in to the blu ray and it was suddenly pixelated with occasional pop sounds on the speakers, basically unwatchable. I tried skipping a chapter and it eventually took fine and finished playing without problems. When I took the disc out (smurfs) it does have some smudges on it so I figured that caused the issue. However today I was playing a child's dvd for my 3 year old and it's freezing/skipping quite a bit throughout over a 10min period. I'm starting to wonder if it's the player now as I've owned the player for a year and haven't had a single issue like this before.

Frustrating, because I love the player.

How to quiet my BDT210 player? When I am watching a movie I can hear the drive in this player spinning pretty well from 12ft back. Curious if anyone has any kinda mods to quiet this player up short of putting it behind a glass door to reduce the sound? I was pondering taking it apart to see if I could put some felt lining inside the case to dampen sound or putting some felt on the wall of our AV opening to dampen sounds similar to what one does to silence a PC case. I don't have an enclosure to put this player in unfortunately so looking for some ideas.

Appreciate any input.

^I haven't tried them but I wonder if something like this would help: http://www.amazon.com/Sorbothane-Hemisphere-Non-skid-Adhesive-Durometer/dp/B00516DGIG/ref=pd_sim_hi_5

I've considered these because I can hear the spinning of the disc and the vibration goes through the shelf.

is this a problem with rental discs or all discs? Sometimes the labels placed on rental discs can cause them to become unbalanced. If the problem is with all discs then there is a problem with your player. My 210 is quiet and rumble free.
post #8237 of 8458
Noise during disc playback has been a complaint about these in this thread since the beginning. There are those who hear it clearly (and are annoyed by it) and those of us who never hear it, or at least not from normal viewing distance. Some of those who hear it have returned their units once or twice and hear it just as well in the replacements. I hadn't considered before now that it might have something to do with the acoustics properties of where they have it sitting. If you hear it try placing a hand towel or something underneath it (not as a permanent solution, just a quick test).

BDT 210 version 1.88 optical not working

Hello, system was working great until went online and auto-update changed firmware to 1.88 from original, now the optical out to av does not play, i am guessing the optical format has been changed in the new firmware and my av (older style) does not recognize it. But all was great until update
can i reverse to previous version of firmware or is their a way to change optical format so my av will recognize it (pioneer elite about 10 years old )
Thanks

You might try separately unplugging both the player and the AVR, wait about 10 minutes, plug in and see if that works. For starters unplug your Optical cable at both ends, reattach and see if that fixes the problem.

Try this iPhone app: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/panasonic-blu-ray-remote-2011/id428441557?mt=8 That should load right to your phone and provide all the control you need.

My guess is that it defaulted to pass something that your receiver can't decode. Try changing it so it downmixes to LPCM or Bitstream/DD or DD+ (I can't remember exactly what the setting is). Maybe it's trying to pass Dolby TrueHD or DTS-HD and your receiver is like WTF!

EDIT: You can't pass the lossless codecs over optical (not enough bandwidth) but I still think you should tinker around in that section of the setup to get it to work.

Anybody talking about the new Netflix SuperHD on the 110/210/310 players? I found a support site on Netflix that shows that if the player supports 1080p (which includes the 110/210/310) it should support it as long as your ISP is on board.

IMHO it's overrated with a 7 Mbps ceiling. Compare that to Vudu's 9 Mbps ceiling for 1080P (HDX), which has been out for a while. Vudu supplies 28% more.

So it's apparently "super" but it's late and it has lower quality. rolleyes.gif

EDIT: This early in the game, I don't know if 7 Mbps is the minimum for the user or the maximum they supply. If 7 Mbps is the floor and they have a significantly higher ceiling, well now they have my attention!

Bit rate does not equal quality; it's possible that Netflix' encoder tech can achieve the same quality as VUDU's 9 Mbps HDX in the 6184 Mbps that it uses (5800+384 Kbps, video+sound, requiring 7+ Mbps to reliably keep ahead of). Of course, no one has objectively compared them as yet.

No doubt. But unless they have a new codec (which would probably require FW updates on all players and be tough to keep a secret) I don't know how they would squeeze more out an existing codec.

In any case, perhaps it's best to reserve judgment until we have something to look at.

Maybe they are going with H.265?

That's exactly what they're claiming, thus far without offering any proof. Netflix has replaced their old 3600 Kbps 720p encodes with 3000 Kbps ones encoded with their new tech and their old 4800 Kbps encodes with 3850 Kbps ones. I personally would like to at least get some frames to compare with frame captures of their old HD encodes. Forum member msgohan made a large pile of such frame captures in 2011 and exhibited them in his "Netflix PS3 streaming comparison PIX" thread (tragically ImageShack auto-magically converted his 1080x1920 captures into 450x800 rolleyes.gif, but he still has the original files). He told me that he'd take some but he hasn't had the opportunity yet.
