This player outputs Dolby True HD as PCM and does not do DTS-MA. Set your new AVR to PCM...

I knew this player would not decode DTS-MA, but I thought you could send the signal via bitstream in HDMI and let the AVR decode the signal?

The dmp-bd10a only decodes internally, it does not bitstream those formats.

So for advanced codecs over HDMI set everything to PCM? I have a PS3 so I guess I'll use it to play DTS-MA discs.

If I buy a new receiver with DTS-MA decoding, will I get DTS-MA out of my BD10A through the 7.1 analog?

No, you'll get DTS reg-lar but at it's highest bit-rate.

Ok I have been following this thread since it started, But I am not about to reread it to find my answer again. MY BD10 a used to be hooked up to a DLP and a 7.1 Sound System. I now have it hooked to my Sammsung Plasma HDMI and no Suround system at this time.

1. Can Any one help me to pick what settings wouldbe best in the set up menu,

Ex. Multi channel or 2 ch. Theres also a darker setting and all that kind of stuff. Thanks a lot.

Anyone?

How should the other settings be set, such as HDMI levels and Black levels and what not? Picture detail normal or fine and so on.

When Was the last Firmware Released? Will there be more? My Guess is not which sucks because this has been a great player for me, I have this along with the 55 and the 85 and this is my most used one out of all of them.

I have my BD10A set up to play the high res audio through HDMI using PCM. My receiver is a Yamaha RX3900 and verifies 7:1 as does the Blue Ray player using test tones. I can only get the player to pass 5:1 high res such as Dolby True HD. I do the disc set up for 7:1 and only 5:1 passes via PCM. I should mention the back surround work fine when using Dolby EX. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Most discs only contain 5.1 sound track. Are you sure you are playing a disc with 7.1 sound tracks. 7.1 TrueHD and DTS-HD are very rare. On some newer Panny players, Panasonic also restrict the decoding capability in software to 5.1 max for low end players so that they can force you to pay more for mid or higher end versions.

But yours is pretty old version. Such limit wasn't imposed back then.

Chris Botti in Boston is Dolby True HD 7:1.

I just purchased a used Panasonic DMP-BD10 Blu ray player and the only Blu ray it will play is Pandorum. The rest gets a read disc error. I checked the Panasonic site and the latest firmware is v2.5. The player is already updated to V2.5. Any suggestions? I only paid 10.00 for the player, so if its broken no big lose. Just weird it only plays Pandorum.

Sounds like it may have been priced so low for a reason, I have a Panasonic DMP-BD10A and have never had a disc it wouldn't play, it's always been a great player.

My guess would be that either the reader is dirty or dying. A cleaning might yield you a player...???

My BD 10 A is still going strong, I love this play I used it more then any of my others, It's load times aren't the fastest but it does well, the only disc I could not get it to play was Avatar.
