Ah, so the adapter only accepts 1 input?

From Customer Review on Amazon site:
"#2 The firmware the unit currently ships with will not let you get into the Internet streaming apps or anything for that matter until you update the firmware. Updating the firmware from the 1.09 firmware it ships with will not work as of this date via wireless or wired internet connections. The secondary option is to burn the frmware to a disc. This you think would be straight foward, but it isn't. Using Windows 7 or Vista, you MUST create an ISO 9660 ONLY... I went through 3 coasters before this player could properly read the Firmware update disc I created to bring it up to 1.47. Using any other ISO format will fail."

If true, this is a ridiculous update procedure. Can others confirm what the update procedure is?

I dunno, I find it hard to believe the wired would not work.

I don't know about the 210, but I did the firmware update on the 110 wired without problems and they use the same firmware.

Ok, a 2d to 3d report and question. Tried it with my 210 and brand new mits 82838 on top gun blu ray version. Worked pretty good. Watched it with daughter and son in law. 1) the 3d is pretty subtle but consistent . 2) we seemed to like the setting -5 depth vs +3 pop setting. 3) the best parts were the aerial combat, the depth was noticeable. 3) while I thought i heard it was impossible on a dlp, it had ghosting on several scenes with faces in front of light backgrounds. Maybe that was due to the conversion or some interaction with my other settings? (i have all the bells and whistles turned on) It was not severe but being a 3d addict from original Nvidia CRT supported days I noticed it. My guests did not. Anyway if anyone else notices it and finds the cure before I do please post an answer. Btw the Mitsubishi shows zero ghosting on regular blu ray or download 3d movies or ps3 3d or on my Fuji 3d camera, as far as I can see so far.

Im seeing issues on 2D-3D with my 738, but 3D is fine. I think there is an issue between the BDT and Mitsu, with regards to 2D-3D.

I just watched part of Deadwood Episode 1 in 2D to 3D. The Mits adapter will convert the side by side to checkerboard with no problems. And for what it's worth Swearingen is just as ugly in 3D

I wonder if the same setup you have, the Mits adapter, would work on my Samsung DLP. So what you select is the side by side function on the 210, and then have it go through the Mits adapter and you can get 2D-3D?

I have a Samsung DLP with the Mitsubishi adapter in place and the 210 lets me use the 2D to 3D feature. Blu rays converted look pretty good, DVDs on the other hand, do not look good converted.

That's correct. But does the Mits adapter work on a Samsung? I seem to recall when the adapter came out last year everyone thought it was going to but then not long before the release date Mitsubishi said sorry Sammy owners but it's not going to work for youo. And I've not followed to know if anything has changed.

If you have the adapter, you set the 210 player to FullHD and you can use the 2D to 3D conversion. Just make sure you get the newer adapter that Mitsubishi sells on their Web Site.

Thats what I ran into on my 2010 non adapter version. If you set it to Checkerboard, one thing happens, but if you set it to Full 3D HD, then 2D-3D works fine.

Here is the newer one that works on the Samsungs:

If you use that Mist. adapter on the 210 doing 2D-3D, do you still get full surround sound? DTS-HD, 7.1EX and all that?

I do, I am using a 1.4 receiver. I am not sure if a 1.3 receiver will though. A 1.3 receiver will accept a checkerboard output and produce the HD sound, but not sure how the adapter fits in with a 1.3 receiver though. The adapter will only work being used between the receiver and the tv, which is fine for me to use the 210, PS3, and XBox 360 with the adapter.

For Panasonic, this has been this way forever. It's not necessary Win7 or Vista problem. As long as you have a disc burning software that can create ISO9660 discs, you will be fine. The built-in disc buring feature on Vista or WIn7 only burns UDF format and hence won't work. And ImgBurn free utility won't work either (not sure if ImgBurn author ever figured this out).

My 210 updated fine wired.

Typically, there is a few days or weeks of delay time from the updated firmware being available to download to the time you can update directly via the internet connection on the player.

You download latest firmware from Panasonic Global site (panasonic.net). The latest version available for 110/210 is v1.47 released Feb 24.

The player downloads from Panasonic USA server.

I was able to download the firmware update wireless on my 210 model. there was no problem at all.

HUH? what exactly is your reason for quoting me with that reply?

The quoted review was posted when the firmware update is only available for download, not yet for player through internet connection.

So, yes, update directly from player works, but you may have to wait a few days before Panasonic USA posted on its server.

Also, this thing is TINY!

It's as wide from the front to the back as a Blu-Ray disc case is long and stands just a few centimeters above a quarter on it's edge.

I got my 210 Yesterday, and I think it had a 1.10 firmware (hard to remember). It updated through the wireless with no issues.
post #115 of 8460
I bought the 110 to output 3D in the native checkerboard on my 60638 without any additional hardware.
It works great!

I have a library of non-3D material on my HP MediaSmart that I play using my WDTV Live and I can see it using 'Network Drive' on my 110.

Does anyone know if the 110 can play 3D MKV files that produce a 3D effect without having to buy more hardware?

I'd prefer to play directly from the Network Drive, but for now I'd just like to know if the 110 can correctly play a 3D MKV in a format that my TV will understand.

TIA

Fine but I wasn't the first to to reply that it worked so you should have quoted that review, I was confused as to why you quoted my reply.

Don't know about 3d but I was having stuttering,freezing issues streaming an MKV over network drive with my 210. Something that my WDTV Live has no issues with. Maybe my network was funky at the time as I haven't tried any since.

My 210 updated the software via the internet with no problem just like every other player I've used.

Tried to perform the factory reset but could not do so since you have to rely on messages showing up on the front panel display. So I decided to just unplug the power for a minute and, lo and behold, the front panel display is now working. And it even seems to be running a little quieter.

Hope this helps if anyone else has similar problems.

I don't notice any noise from either my BD65 or the BDT110.
