The Van Helsing Blu-ray disc gives a system hang-up during playback. During the playback of the Blu-ray disc the screen suddenly freezes and there is a complete hang-up of the BDP-S390 Blu-ray player. The player does not respond to the remote control any more and the only way to solve the problem is to disconnect the power from the AC outlet. I have the latest firmware version M11.R.0422 for the BDP-S390 sold in Europe. I have reported this problem to the Sony Support Team in Europe and I hope that Sony Japan can resolve this playback problem with a new firmware update.

Have you tried disabling Deep Color to see if that has an impact?
post #2072 of 3999
Deep Color is now set on auto. So if the source has 16 bit code it will be engaged. I can disable Deep Color to see if it has any impact. Sony Japan has to look into this matter because under no circumstances the player should lock-up regardless the settings of the Blu-ray player.

There is NO reason to leave Deep Colour ON/AUTO. Nothing in the Audio/Video rhelm of today uses it. Leave in OFF.

Turn off any features you don't need on the player, including "Auto Display", in the System Settings.

 

If the player locks up again, try holding down the power button on the player (not remote) until it goes off, instead of simply pulling the plug (which is probably not a good idea).

Can anyone confirm to me if the S590 can indeed play mp4 video files off a data DVD disc?

Thanks, I just wanted to make sure it will read mp4 videos off a DVD instead of just USB devices like some other players.

How do I make my Sony s590 a DVD region free player?

I'm in Oz I bought this player assuming - like my last Sony Bluray player - that it would be DVD region free.

But it's locked to DVD region 4. I've searched around and found no remote control hacks for this model. Earlier model DVD region hacks for Sony Bluray players use a brand of universal remote (the All In One brand) that I don't have. I own a Logitech universal remote.

Any tips?
post #2079 of 3999
Very difficult to do with logitech because of the complexity of getting several pronto hex codes into the remote. I recommend you get a one-for-all. They can be had for as little as $3 on ebay in the US and perhaps Oz as well. Just about any of the basic or comfort line HERE should work fine. UEI (maker of one-for-all) also makes many cable, satellite, OEM and store brand remotes. So you may already have one and not know it. There are literally hundreds of remote models made by UEI which will work. If you find a specific model and aren't sure if it will work, post back and I can tell you if it will or not. Also post a link to the hack procedure so I can translate the codes correctly for your model. Another benefit of having a one-for-all is you can add every possible command for all your devices because many are missing from the logitech database.

Wow, that would be a huge help. Is there a specific remote on ebay you would recommend for price and function?

I'm assuming the hack only works for dvd's, but as a longshot is there a way to hack for blu rays as well?

I've never tried the hack on sony myself, nor do I have any foreign DVDs, so I can't say. But I do know these remotes. The models vary by what part of the world you are in. Here in the US, the models below can do the hack using DVD code 0533 or 20533 depending on the access method ([2] means 20533 and anything else is 0533). The cheapest and easiest to find is probably the Comcast 1067BX3 If you can't find any of these elsewhere, PM me. I have plenty. HERE's how to do the hack. The magic key is also the S, Setup, or P key. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

I'm thinking of buying the BDP-390 sometime in the future.

Can the player read mkv files off of Data-BDR's?
post #2084 of 3999

BDP-S390 and NAS

Hi Guys,

Just bought the S390.

With the help of this forum I have managed to get the 'HomeStream' to work, using the Bravia format.

Has anyone managed to hook a Seagate Goflex NAS drive to the S390 via the Lan cable?

I can only read m2st and mp3 files from the Seagate Goflex.

Avi and mkv are, not supported.

I don't like leaving my PC on all the time to watch films via HomeStream.



BTW Netflix is working fine.

Hi folks,

I have a relatively straight forward question, that hopefully can be answered - I have tried looking through previous posts, but there are quite a lot of them.

Does Netflix UK work on a BDP-390 based in the UK? I've been trying to find an answer for hours, but all that I can find is "It should work".

Thanks in advance

MKV files with mpeg 4 AVC should play fine. VC-1 or mpeg2 needs a bit of tweaking. MKVs are just containers for something else !

I don't think you can tweak VC-1; these files need to presented in an M2TS container to play back on a Sony BD machine.

It looks like the Seagate supports UPnP and the Sony supports some .avi and .mkv files. You won't have the flexibility of Homestream/Serviio, which can transcode or remux, but some files in those formats should work if the codecs are compatible (mpeg-4 for mkv and Xvid for avi). Are you able to see the mkv and avi files in the directory listing when you browse video files on the Seagate from the player?
post #2090 of 3999
I have contacted the Sony Support Team in Europe and they have asked me several questions about the hang-up problem of the BDP-S390 player. One of the questions was if I use a HDMI port with ARC (Audio Return Channel). The BDP-S390 is connected with an Audioquest Pearl HDMI interconnect to a Sony KDL-40EX650 LCD TV using a HDMI port with ARC. If the ARC function is not working good this could stop the communication over the HDMI bus. I do not think the settings of the player can be the problem of the hang-up during playback of the BDP-S390 player. The hang-up moment is random during playback of the Van Helsing Blu-ray disc. So far this is the only disc which causes the player hang-up problem.

Yes I can see all the files, but get the corrupted/ un supported message.

Have you actually tried turning off ARC in both the TV and the receiver to see if that helps?

Bugs in the implementation can cause problems whether or not it "should" work.

Help with fast forward on .mpg streaming video

Hi all,

I haven't found a direct answer to this on the site so I figured i would ask direct. I'm using the S590 to stream a .mpg video from an HPServer (Home Server) and using just the remote control that came with the unit. It doesn't seem to have any fast forward or pause functions from the remote. I was previously using popcorn hour in one room and an LG BlueRay in another and both funtion fine with the mentioned functions. Is there any fix to this?? Thanks in advance.
post #2096 of 3999
Sony should look into this matter. The BDP-S390 player should work correctly regardless the use of a HDMI with or without ARC. On an other AVS thread I have seen a posting about a similar hang-up problem with the BDP-S790.

Sounds like the codecs being used in your files are incompatible. Open some of your files in a program such as MediaInfo, which can display details about the codecs being used in your files. This information will help to determine why specific files are not playing from your NAS without transcoding/remuxing from Homestream/Serviio,

Hi
Does BDP-S590 keep spinning the disc all the time when disc is inserted? Even when playing internet video or listening internet radio? Or when player is in XMB menu?
post #2099 of 3999
I noticed this with my 580, so I think it may be common. It got to the point it wad so loud that I put my Wii on top of it as a paperweight to hush the vibration and humming.

Yup. Think so. 790 does it too. Annoying !
