I have a brand new in box 310, which i've been saving until i bought a 3d tv. Well, i finally got one, so i am ready to hook it up. I believe it has launch (or close) firmware on it, and therefore be cinavia free. Can anyone confirm 100% that there is no cinavia on the most recent firmware? i saw posts in this thread about the 110/210 being cinavia free on 1.88, so i assume that the 310 is good to go too? Im scared to update, since this player is hard to find in true brand new condition now. Im just looking for confirmation from someone who owns this exact model and has updated so i can be 100% sure. Thanks!

There's nothing about Cinavia in any of release notes. Cinavia didn't become mandatory until the following model year and Panasonic has no obligation to add Cinavia support to older products.

How do I get this player to "not" have a blank screen when it turns on?....Every time I go to turn it on, the screen is blank until I hit the play button...Then it will show the menu or home screen. Is there a setting that I am missing?

BDT 110 HDMI output to TV is dead

I ordered a 110 two years ago to come with my panny ST30. I had to send it back TWICE because the HDMI port on the back was intermittent at best. (I also figured out that heat from the receiver below it was a contributing factor, and fixed that problem with my third iteration.) So everything was hunky dory for two years and I was really enjoying using Viera link to control the BDP, but last night with no indications, the HDMI connection is not passing video or audio to the TV. Interestingly, I can still turn the BDP on and off through Viera link, which uses HDMI. I'm still troubleshooting, but my first guess is that the port on the 110 is bad, again.

Anyone have this experience or any insight?

Thanks

Sorry you have had so many problems. My 110 is still running fine. Try a reset if you haven't already.

post #8317 of 8458
Well, for whatever reason it works again today. I tested the cable, which runs through the wall, by hooking up a different BDP. When I saw that worked, I plugged back in the original one and voila. Why it didn't work after the half-dozen tries of re-connecting last night, I don't know. I hope this is the last of it.

Thanks

FWIW I have intermittent HDMI issues with two of my boxes (Cable Box & AVR) not my DBT-210. There's a ton of posts regarding the inconsistency of HDMI. It's known to be just plain flakey.
I know that's no help but generally speaking it's not considered a reliable connection.

I found that my 110 is very picky with long cable runs. I was trying to connect it to my TV in my living room from my basement equipment rack and had nothing but problems, but it works just fine with a 1M HDMI cable in my basement HT running through a AVR.

I had a 35 foot run when it was in the HT. No problems. Now it's in the bedroom.

PLEASE SOMEONE HELP ME WITH THIS!


How do I get this player to "not" have a blank screen when it turns on?....Every time I go to turn it on, the screen is blank until I hit the play button...Then it will show the menu or home screen. Is there a setting that I am missing? The player works fine, it's just that every time I turn it on to watch a movie, it has a blank screen. So then I press "play" and it then shows up. Shouldn't there be some kind of Panasonic logo or home screen of some kind when it first boots up????
post #8322 of 8458
Sounds like your equipment is not negotiating correctly on start-up. What steps have you taken so far? What equipment? How is it run? Need a little more info if we're going to help.

I have had this hooked up in three rooms with three different types of displays, but the same thing happens. I have it hooked up to the main HDMI out...I have had several Panasonic Blu-ray players, but never experienced this before. If I switch my receiver from Directv to Blu-ray (Panasonic player in question)...it just shows a black screen until I press play on my remote....then I can see the Home screen with Photos, Network, Music, Videos, setup....But I hate the Black blanked out screen...I hate having to press play every time to see something.

Do you have Quick Start = On. Turn it off, I think that will solve it.

Problem is back. mad.gif I guess it's time for a new player. I hate to get another Panasonic but the Viera link is the only additional feature I use.

Well, the good news for the forum is: it ain't the player. Seems my HDMI cable has suffered from having been bent this way and that every time we watch something (TV is on a mount over a mantle, we pull it down at every viewing.) Bad news for me is I need to replace a cable that is bundled with others and running through a wall. On to another forum.

I've been trying this the last few movies I have watched with mixed results.
Does the timing matter?
Do you need to do it as soon as you close the tray drawer?

Trying what? Not quite sure what you are asking.

Strange problem I am having with my Panasonic BDT-110. Love the player but now I am having audio problems.

Specifically, movies are REALLY quiet now. I'm having to really crank the volume. I used to watch movies between -20 and -32; and now we are watching them between -12 and -20. All the speakers are working. The volume issue doesn't seem to be a problem for TV (different HDMI in) or for my analog-in DVD-audio player. Just the blu-ray player. DVDs or Blu-rays both. Picture is fine.

I tried looking at settings, but didn't see anything noteworthy. I also recently upgraded the firmware from 1.1 to 1.88; didn't fix the problem.

Any ideas?
post #8332 of 8458
Since a few weeks the blue "CALL" light of my DMP-BDT110 is permanently blinking. As anyone experienced this issue? Any solution to stop it? (I do not use Skype functionality)
post #8333 of 8458
Is the Skype button on your remote stuck on possibly? Have you unplugged the player and plugged it back in?

You need an OLD Player WITHOUT Cinavia

The last update for the BDT110/210/310 was V1.88, issued a year ago--no Cinavia.

My apps screen is whacked; I can only see Amazon and Shoutcast and even those icons don't look right. The settings icon (within network) is gone. So are Pandora and Vudu.

Amazon and Pandora both work. Weird. I tried powering off the unit. Same thing.

I've had this thing for a long time and never had this problem.

Anyone seeing this? I don't know how much of the 'Net' interface relies on a Panny server somewhere that might be having trouble.
post #8338 of 8458
For anyone that doesn't know, this player will play other region Blu-Rays by following a few different methods. It won't play any PAL or 1080/50i content without modified firmware however. Here's the 3 methods that I've discovered so far:

Method 1 -

- Insert a disc and wait for the "Wrong Region" screen to appear
- Press the "Pop-Up Menu" button
- Disc should boot to the discs main menu or start playing the movie

Method 2 -

- Insert a disc and wait for the "Wrong Region" screen to appear
- Press Stop
- Press the "Pop-Up Menu" button
- Disc should boot to the discs main menu or start playing the movie

Method 3 -

- Insert a disc and wait for the "Wrong Region" screen to appear
- Press Stop
- Press 1 and the number "1" should start blinking in the upper right corner. Press the "OK" button while 1 is blinking. You may have to try this a few times, as it usually doesn't work the first time. Try pressing OK on the first or second blink and it should work.
- Disc should boot to the discs main menu or start playing the movie

Question about my Panny 210 - this has probably been addressed before but I'm not finding it in the Search

I can put an MKV file on the SD card and on a USB thumb drive, and the 210 sees it on the USB but not on the SD card. The manual seems to imply that the 210 can only see files on the SD card that the 210 put there, not ones loaded via a computer. So is it true that the SD card is only used by the 210 (e.g. BDLive) and not by real humans?

Thanks!

Ted

Okay guys. A little help here. I have spent an hour reviewing this thread without success on 278 pages!

Just got my first 3D projector, Epson 5020UB. I have had the 210 blu-ray player for a while, but never tried 3D modes before. I am having a hard time figuring out the correct settings. I continually have to stop my 3D blu-rays and back out to the blu-ray settings and manually select the 3D type to force it to work. Seems like something is not right. As I should only have to start the 3D mode on the projector.

I have the following panasonic settings:

Disc > 3D Blu-ray Video Playback: Automatic

TV / Device Connections > 3D Settings > 3D Type: Side by side
> 3D Playback Precautions : Off

I also see Full HD and Checkerboard as 3D Type options, but I'm not sure I grasp the difference between these 3D Type options.

Before you get on my case, I tested this with a direct HDMI connection from the 210 to the Epson, and using 3D pass-through with my receiver. No difference.
