That is an excellent deal and a bigger bargain than you might realize. That was the last of the cinavia free blu ray players Panasonic made and some day in the future, you might be really pleased that you bought it.

That's good to know. It has a great picture on my new Panny Plasma;).

4) I do NOT have any Homegroups on my Win7, though I suppose it should work regardless. And I also use the 128-bit encryption (default in Win7).


5) Of course File and Printer Sharing must be on, otherwise you cannot share a folder -- although you can still stream DLNA even without File and Printer Sharing.


Hope this helps.

Can you give a real example of what you entered for step #2 shown above?

I haven't been able to get the Panasonic to see shared files on my computer. However, my desktop and laptop share drives and that part works fine. Thank you.

Yes, check the settings and you will find an option to turn off the hands-free sensor.

I have not had any problems with my 210 even when watching Netflix streaming videos. However, i recently subscribed to Amazon Prime and now have an issue with my 210 just shutting down right in the middle of a streaming Amazon Prime movie. This will happen 4-5 times per movie! I would have to start the 210 up again, find my movie and it would at least allow me to resume from previous drop. I don't have Netflix anymore so I can't test it with Netflix now. Amazon claims it's the device. Any ideas?

Sorry for the late response, I don't follow this thread as closely anymore.

Whatever name you entered in Windows as the name of the share is what you enter on the Panny.

On my PC the shared video folder is called DVR, which is then also the default name when I share it. Thus I simply enter DVR as share name on the Panny.

Of course you have to know the IP of your PC as well and enter that on the Panny (for example 192.168.0.15).

Finally, you have to enter an actual user name and password. (I've since seen some reports of successfully using anonymous user, which I couldn't get working). I have a user called DvrUser with its own password. This user is added under permissions for the share (in Windows) and entered on the Panny as well.

And finally, Network Drive must be enabled in Settings on the Panny in order for this feature to even show up in the menus.

Hope that helps. It's not an elegant implementation by Panasonic, to be sure, but it does work.

Thanks for this excellent tip. I spent hours trying to put all kinds of logical names and couldn't connect. With your tip, I could connect in no time. Many thanks.

Having fits trying to play WAV files from a DLNA server through my BDT210. mad.gif

I can't get more than 10 minutes of audio before it reports the server is not there. I started out with wireless, then went with a wired network and it still drops the connection to the server.

I have an Oppo BDP-93 in another room and it is rock-solid accesing the same server. I've had the 210 for some time and just recently set up an audio server.

I've spent some time searching this thread without finding anything specific. Does anyone have any suggestions on getting this to work reliably?? I thought this would be pretty straightforward...

TIA!

I'm having USB drive issues with my 110. I inserted a 16GB USB flash drive into the port in the front. The player then gives me the message, "this USB device is incompatible."

The drive is FAT32, which the manual says is a compatible format. I just want to play some AVIs that are on the drive.

Thanks.

Has anyone else started having problems accessing pretty much any online content? I have internet connection to the player (as verified in the settings), but everything seems to take forever to load if it loads at all. For example, Netflix menus will load slowly, programming less than about 45 minutes seems to load, but anything 1 hour+ definitely will not load. It is really strange and driving me crazy. As far as I know, nothing has changed with my network topology in the last half week.

I guess another way to ask this is does the Panasonic Netflix app connect to a different set of servers than, say, Netflix in a PC browser window?

I watched a couple of hours of Netflix last night on a 110, no problems. Could it be your ISP?
post #8294 of 8458
Ok, so I formatted my USB flash drive to exFAT, and now my 110 recognizes it. I am able to view JPGs from it. I converted an AVI to an MKV and put it on the drive. I can select "Videos" on the 110, and it will list the MKV on my flash drive, but when I go to play it, it says, "Cannot play this title."

Any ideas?

That's becoming my chief suspect as I did a whole mess of testing and diagnosing last night. That also was supported when I discovered my second 110 was seeing similar issues. I further tweaked a few minor things and did finally seem to re-establish a solid connection again. The kids watched a movie and all was fine (as I suspected it would be once it loaded in the first place).

I still am curious though as to whether Netflix in a browser and Netflix on a STB are really getting their info in the exact same manner from the same servers. I somewhat doubt it since I have seen this problem on multiple occasions...I'm just thankful it's resolved for now.

Thanks for the quick reply.

All of a sudden no front panel! (BDT210)
tried changing settings from 'bright', 'dim', 'auto', - nothing! No lights when on whatsoever. Anyone else had this problem?
post #8297 of 8458
My DMP-BDT110 just up and died last night. It doesn't think a disk has been inserted into the drive and they come out with a big grease smear across the disk. That's the second Panasonic drive in a row which has died not long after the warranty expired. Inexpensive (or mid-priced for the earlier one) at the original purchase with a short product lifetime does not mean it is inexpensive to own as a product. Sorry Panasonic, but you're out of consideration for any future players... :-(

I can describe the video glitches as quick, white flashes or a scrambled picture, 1-2 seconds long. They happened frequently from then on, one lasted for 30 seconds while the screen went totally black, with no sound.


Here is my equipment.


Panasonic ST30

Denon AVR-1612 receiver

BDT-210


I am using high speed hdmi cables from monoprice / blue jeans for everything except the connection from blu ray to AVR. For that connection, its a $50 monster hi speed cable from best buy.



Any thoughts on what to try? All settings on the new blu ray player are default.



I did notice a setting related to 24p on the blu ray but have not tried it yet.


Thanks in advance


###UPDATE###

In case anyone is interested.. My glitches are gone and playback is flawless!! I simply changed the 24p setting in the player to 'on'. The ST30 was already set to 24p 60HZ..

That was it, nothing else was changed..

Thanks..

Aha, I think my grandmother's system was having this problem too. Sometimes you would see sparkles on screens, but most often white flashing and even complete dropouts where you could see the LED on the receiver losing signal.

She has been using a BMP-BDT210 for a long time with a Samsung LCD (I don't remember the model),and got a Denon AVR-1613 a couple months ago to do HDMI switching (and a big improvement for a previous receiver). The setup worked fine for at least a month. Then suddenly we had the problem you described above. We first tried moving the dvd player to different ports on the receiver but that didn't do it. Then we powered off for a while and switched the cables around, but no luck. Updated firmware on TV and Receiver (dvd player was already latest). No dice. Then we moved the player direct to TV and that was fine through an entire movie. So, we had to come back to this later and then I found this thread. Maybe when she picked up the new receiver we set deep color or 24p to a different setting on the player, or it's just the Panasonic and Denon not shaking hands very well...I'm not sure. Anyway.

It APPEARED that turning deep color to off instead of auto fixed her problem.

I'm going to tweak around with it some more, and will try to come back to confirm.


Unrelated, one thing I can't seem to shake on this model is its ability to consistently connect netflix instant or amazon video. Sometimes it connects fine within 10 seconds of booting, other times you gota wait 5 or 10 minutes for it to stop telling you it's not online (even when you can see it is online in options connected to your network). Problem goes away if you disable WiFi WEP, but that's not a solid solution. Sometimes it switches (flickers) between SD and HD a lot while streaming which could be any number of bandwidth limitations going on, but really shouldn't happen on fiber optics. It's only 15' away from the wifi router, but it is very close to a thick slab floor. I'm on the same provider across town and have no problems streaming. Just a minor annoyance. It appears I need to see if she has the player set to Double Speed Mode.

Also trying to play media is not worth the time spent. The major point of the AVR-1613 was to limit their remotes and interaction anyway, and the Audyssey EQ really helps her with volume. smile.gif

Good player considering it has a little age on it, just not super mature features I suppose. Excellent picture and audio, but eh that's to be expected with blu ray these days.

Thank you for sharing

I have suddenly started having this same issue watching Netflix. I was watching Sherlock the last 2 nights, and suddenly, the player just completely shuts down. It gives the "Bye" message and shuts down. This happened probably 4 times last night in an hour. Just wondering if anyone has any suggestions or whether anyone else has had this happen. It's very odd behavior and extremely annoying. Of course, my warranty recently ran out.

My BDT-110 is working perfectly with Netflix. Never a problem.

However it freezes every few minutes with Hulu. Almost every commercial break.

No problems at all on my computer with either Netflix or Hulu Plus. Very frustrating.

Not sure if anyone is still following this thread now but ive got a really weird and annoying problem with my 310. The remote can turn the unit on but that is it - once on the unit will not accept any remote instructions. The remote is fine, i have also used my harmony one and nothing. The 310 has been in storage for over a year but it is really strange that it will turn on via the remote but nothing else?

Any ideas as without the remote this player is pretty much useless.

Thanks
post #8302 of 8458
Does it flash something like wrong unit or something. The unit might be set to accept a different remote signal, e.g. if there are other panasonic units. There is a reset but you would need to check the manual.

Are you able to use the buttons on the player itself? Try to reset the unit with some fresh batteries in the remote.

Hi. Newbie to the forum here. I have searched for the following issue in this forum as well as in google without success. I am able to connect my BDT210 to my network and to my computer. I am able to access Windows Media Center recorded TV and play it from my computer through the BDT210 to my flat screen in the living room usually. The issue that I have is that it lists the programs by the episode title not the name of the show. I therefore have to go to my computer and make a list of what the current episode name is for each show in order to make an informed decision as to what to watch next. In my recorded TV file it lists the show name and in properties in the metadata both the TV show name and the episode title are there but I can not figure out how to display the TV show name on my TV. A small inconvenience but annoying none the less. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I am trying to convince my wife that streaming is the way things are done now-a-days but this is not helping. Thanks

I may be wrong but I doubt that you can make the player display the show name. The DLNA client in these BD players is pretty frickin' rudimentary (as Samuel Clemens supposedly said, "The remarkable thing about a dancing bear is not that it dances well"). You might want to edit the episode name metadata in the files to append the name of the show. I use names like "Doctor Who 609 - 'Night Terrors'".

Thanks for your reply. You are likely right. Really enjoyed the Twainism. I think that changing each episode title in the file to include the show name might be more effort than simply writing them down.

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?


I'm having the same issue. It's very sporadic. Yesterday, I watched two movies both DTS-HD Master and they played fine. The week before I watched 2 movies and on one of them the player reboots automatically. The disks are in excellent shape. Once the player reboots I can go right to the scene it rebooted and the movie will play fine. I was wondering if anyone else was having this issue and this is the first post I have seen. I'm wondering if it wasn't a firmware update.
post #8308 of 8458
First off. Fromy browsing this thread, our players currently support FAT32 and exFAT right?
I wanted to play SuperLeo's new demo disc but this is when I discovered the fat32 location. I was attemping to hook up my western digital passbook portable hard drive 320gbs.

I was trying to utilize MultiAVCHD to creat a AVCHD to pop onto the hard drive to play it. This was just one "section" so it was only 7gb's not a full 50. No dice and this is when I discoverd the fat32 file size limitation.

I have the BDT-215. From my understanding though the USB hard drive has to be externally powered? Has anyone utilized the demo's discs on here via portable hard drive??

To skip the previews and go directly to the title menu of the movie, hit the Play Button two times in a row instead of pressing the "top menu" button. This should allow you to play the movie immediately.

Does this apply for every BluRay disc? If so, that's the best cheat since SuperContra.
