To further troubleshoot, could you try a different input into your amp. If the problem goes away, then that would make it more an amp issue (although thats probably worse :/ ).
Aww hell,, hope its not an amp issue.. but on the plus side i got a 3 year warranty on it..lol,,better get to work on it.

I'm looking for some help - no video only getting audio from my Panasonic blu ray to my TV:


I have a Panasonic BDT220 Blu Ray, Sony XBR75x850, and Denon 3312ci receiver. The issue is I can't get video from the blu ray to the TV (through the receiver), although I do get audio.

I've check all cable connections and I am using high speed HDMI.

I've also tried hooking the Panasonic blu ray directly to the Sony TV via HDMI and that does infact work.

I also have hooked up my set top box (AT&T Uverse) through the receiver and I do get audio AND picture to the TV.

The receiver has two HDMI out ports, and I do get audio AND video from the other out port (using blu ray) to a separate television (it is a Samsung and uses a shorter HDMI cable and yes I've tried switching between the two HDMI out ports, with no success).

Any thoughts?

The only thing I can think is the HDMI cable is too long (I think it's 50 or 75 feet), but not sure this is the issue as I noted before I do get a audio and video with the Uverse box using the same cable and output/input ports. Or, is there some issue with the blu ray going through the receiver to the TV - possible "handshake" issue?

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Panasonic DMP-BDT 320 - No audio

Hello,

Wondering if anyone else has run across this.

Panasonic DMP-BDT 320 straight into a new Vizio 40: D series UHD 4K TV. Rented a copy of "The Founder" from Redbox. No issues until the actual movie begins. No audio on scene 1 or subsequent scenes. Title screen audio is fine. Bonus features audio is fine. Same thing on second disc from Redbox. No audio from either English or Spanish tracks. Ensured all audio options are off. Two other Blu-ray disc (different titles) play fine. Firmware up to date.

Any thoughts?

Thanks

Panny DMP-BDT220 on latest fw (1.63) has stopped playing BDs (CDs and DVDs fine AFAIK so far). Likely nothing that can be done. Sigh. Will continue to use it for CDs.

If you haven't already, try cleaning the laser.

Thanks, teachsac. I'm using a Trisonic cleaner I have on hand. Tried it dry (no "cleaning solution") applied the first time and it didn't work. I applied some of the solution and am running it longer now.

I stream Netflix thru my BDT-230, and tonite my Netflix screen looked terrible on my projector. I then checked my projector's(Mits. HC3800) resolution output, and it was 720X480. I then started a movie and there was no audio. I then tried my OTA-HD tuner and the image was good, but no audio there either. I then tried my receiver's FM stereo and it worked fine.

We had thunder and lightning last night, and all my components plug into a surge protector.

Does anyone have any advice how to troubleshoot this?

Is it possible the storm messed up the Blu-ray player AND the audio on my OTA-HD tuner?


Thanks for any advice.

BDT500 Audio Question

I have a BDT 500 connected to a legacy rear projector through DVI for video, and L+R anolog audio out from the player to the TV. Since I have been using the TV's internal speakers, which don't utilize 5.1, that's been an okay solution.

Now I have a receiver and speakers, and want to output the audio through optical to the receiver so I can get 5.1 on my speakers. Does the BDT500 have optical out with a bitstream option, as PCM apparently won't carry 5.1 to my receiver according to Pioneer.

Thanks

Yes. But since you already have one, how could you not know this already? The port is clearly visible on the back, and the bitstream options are easy to find in the manual and in the player itself.

I thank you for your response, but not your attitude which presumes a great deal. I have helped out many people on this forum, and it never occurred to me not to be gracious in a response, or to judge why a person is asking a particular question.

Why not HMDI? Optical/coax is limited in the types of audio streams you can decode on the receiver. HDMI yields the high resolution audio tracks on BDs.

To get the most help, it would also be helpful to know the model number of your receiver. Assuming you are still using the HDMI/DVI to your rear projector, the 500 has 2 HDMI audio outputs. 1 for video and 1 for audio. DVI adapters can be finicky, you could also run everything to your receiver, and then the HDMI/DVI adapter from the receiver to your display.

Thank you, teachsac, for your thoughtful responses.

Initially I thought that I could plug HDMI sources into my receiver, which is a Pioneer Elite SC 07, but a call into Pioneer disabused me of that notion. I was lucky to get someone who was very knowledgeable about legacy devices, but she pointed out that the receiver would not output HDMI into a DVI port because of HDCP issues. Of course, I thought about the fact that my Panasonic is outputting just find into the DVP port of my Mitsubishi 65813. Previously, without a receiver, I was simply using analog audio into the TV, which of course is only 2.0. That didn't matter to me because I was using the TV internal speakers only.

That helps. The 65813 DVI is actually HDCP compliant. So it might be worth trying to run everything into your Pioneer receiver and then the HDMI/DVI adapter from the HDMI out on the receiver to the Mitsubishi. No guarantees as DVI can be finicky. Give it a try and post back.

I'm impressed with your knowledge regarding the Mits. That explains the mystery of the successful Panasonic output.

My setup will have to wait a bit, as my deal on some unusual KEFs (Model 11) fell through just a hour ago. One of the drivers in the 11 driver speaker is kaput, and no parts are available. Because the deal was struck, I was expecting them in 5 days, but nothing is apparently done until its done. Are you familiar with the FiveTwos? (Model 7 and 11). UniQs plus NXT flat panels.

If the DVI is finicky, will I be able to output the audio from the Panasonic throught HDMI into the receiver, and still run the BDT500 video into DVI?

Hopefully I'll find another pair, but I appreciate your help and broad knowledge.

You should be able to run the dual HDMI setup just fine.

Question No Audio on DLNA streaming of video with Dolby Digital Plus

I'm having problems with files streamed to the BDT220 from Serviio via DLNA.

Source files are MKV/MPEG4 video with EAC3 (Dolby Digital Plus) audio. Video works fine but there is no audio.

Files with AC3 audio (Dolby Digital) work fine.

My receiver can decode Dolby Digital but not Dolby Digital Plus. Player is connected to the receiver via HDMI. I'm guessing the player is sending raw audio output to the receiver and the receiver can't handle it.

I thought that switching from Bitstream to PCM would solve the problem but no luck/no difference - I still get video but no audio. I don't really understand all the tech jargon so hopefully someone can help me figure this out. Is it possible that the audio options don't apply to the DLNA client?

I could try to get Serviio to transcode from EAC3 to AC3 but then I'd likely lose other features (seek functions typically stop working when sending transcoded files over DLNA).

Need Alternate Remote Solution to Control DMP-BDT320 BluRay

DMP-BDT320 Yes an OLD PLAYER
APOLOGIES IF I AM ASKING IN THE WRONG PLACE.

I HAVE A DMP-BDT320 PLAYER WITH THE N2QAYB00710 REMOTE
I HAVE GREAT DIFFICULTY USING THIS FINGER MOTIONS TYPE REMOTE. I'm 79 years old

I USED TO HAVE A PANASONIC TV.
I STILL HAVE THE TV REMOTE N2QAYB00704 from the previous Pannasonic TV
---------------------------------------
I RECALL THAT THE TV REMOTE USED TO CONTROL THE BLU RAY PLAYER
it no longer does that.

Can anyone point me to any of the following solutions that save me from using the N2QAYB000710 Blu Ray Remote?

1. How to use the Panasonic TV remote N2QAYB000704 to control the Blu ray player
or
2. A software remote that can use to control my Blu Ray player? I have seen there are some apps that act as remotes-maybe an app to control my Blu-Ray player
or

3. Using a xfinity XR11 remote to control my Blu-Ray player

In respect to using an app-
I have an iphone with latest version of IOS,
I also have an Android Tablet NEXUS 10
I have a LG TV remote AKB74915305 [It controls my LG TV].
I have an xfinity XR11 remote it controls my TV and cable box.

thanks in advance- I have been searching with Google and haven't found any of these solutions that I could use.

Hello vienna, I can help you. I faced the exact same thing with the same model. I have two of them and really hate that touch pad remote. So what I did was to get a different Panasonic Blu-ray remote that only has buttons. These are generally interchangeable between the different models. You can purchase one on Amazon or eBay or directly from Panasonic. I'm including a link below to an example. This remote even has several buttons at the top which can be programmed to control your LG television.

Also vienna, you can use phone apps to control your Blu-ray with either iOS or Android on a wifi connection. Search the app stores for "Panasonic Blu-ray Remote". The one that works is from Panasonic and has buttons just like the physical remote that I recommended in my previous post. That app might also be called "Remote 2012" and it is specific for their older players.

There used to be an app for the iPhone for these units. I’m not sure if it’s still available, but the codes for Panny Blu-ray players haven’t changed. A newer app might work if you want to try. Check the app store on your phone.
I never used the finger control remote either. It never worked correctly and was actually more work than a button remote. I picked up a regular Panny remote on eBay for $8 and never looked back.
You can also get a programmable remote to control everything if your LG remote doesn’t have that capability.
Good luck!

I just purchased a used remote N2QAYB000952. It is supposed to control my Panny BDT320 Blu Ray. THANKS FOR PROVIDING ME THAT INFO.
Still have a question.

My Panny TV's [the Panny TV died a sudden death.] remote worked to control the Blu Ray Player- I think without using the TV's capabilities.
But... It no longer seems to be able to control my Blu ray player.
Is it possible that before it was somehow using the Panny TV's features to control the Blu ray Player?
Is the N2QAYB000952 supposed to be able to control the Panny Blu Ray Players?
I have seen statements that most Panny remotes can control most Panny devices-Is this not correct?

I have seen product listings for NON OEM Universal like Remotes that are supposed to control most Panny devices. Are these devices really able to
control "most" panny devices?

For grins I am going to try out the IOS remote app. There were some comments about its limitations on the net that suggested to me that this remote app has shortcomings that makes it awkward to use. Any clarification on this?

I never received any feedback on the ability of the Xfinity/comcast remote's ability to be programmed to control the BDT-320.
I couldn't find this info-Any leads on whether the Comcast remote can control my Blu Ray player?

I could not find how to post a new topic so I am quick replying to my previous post.

I am starting to use my Blu Ray Player again after some years of not using it for anything. I would like to use it to play video store on USB or on SD cards, but I get error messages that it can't find the SD card or USB that are clearly plugged in. Are there special requirements for how the SD cards or USB plug ins are formatted before the BDT320 will recognize them?

Do these HAVE to be formatted ONLY on the Blu Ray Player?

Are there size limits on the SD/USB cards that will work on the Player?

There is another Panasonic remote which can be used and I actually prefer it to the 952 remote. It's the N2QAKB000076. It has a better build quality which you will feel right away. Comparing it to the 952, it has an additional programmable button for TV channel up/down. It also has a programmable button for receiver volume up/down. The only negative about the 076 remote compared to the 952 is minor - it doesn't have a button leading directly to Netflix, instead it has a button going to the general Viera Cast apps. Here is an example of the 076 remote. Again, this should be available from Amazon, eBay and Panasonic.

Apps that will work as a button-style remote...

iOS: You are looking for an app called "Panasonic Blu-ray Remote 2012". It is version 2.1.0. This app is created by Panasonic.

Android: You are looking for an app called "Panasonic Blu-ray Remote 2012". It is version 1.0.1. This app is created by Panasonic.

In order to use either of these apps as a remote you may need to adjust something on your Blu-ray player. Go to Settings > Network > Network Settings > Remote Device Settings. Here you will want Remote Device Operations to be On. Also spend a little time reading your owner's manual about this section if you don't get it working right away. You might have to tweak permissions

I hope the apps work out for you. But my 80+ year old mother could not use an app if her life depended on it. No offense, just letting you know what you may be in for. I think you'd be better off sticking with a traditional remote unless you're really adept at using apps.

First of All: Thanks to mdavej & aqua velva for responses [hope I didn't leave out anyone]
I downloaded the remote 2012 app. I didn't spend much time learning it yet. Looks like it requires some study. I'll look for tutorials help files etc.. If you folks know of such-I will appreciate you pointing me to them. BUT- I just bought a used n2QAYB000925 remote that is all buttons. So the IOS app may not be very useful [to me] even if I can figure out how to use it. I have IOS remote apps for my TV and xfinity cable box and never use them. I use the hardware remotes.

I have a BDT320 problem: It rejects the USB and SD cards with/and without .mkv videos[ says the USB dongle is wrong and says the SD card is wrong[those are the general idea of the error messages. I downloaded the USER GUIDE FOR MY PLAYER. I see the requirements for how to format USB and/or SD cards. Even when I follow those requirements, I get errors. So: Is there a brand of SD or USB cards that works with the BDT321 if properly formatted and with a correct format of video?

My typical videos are in .mkv format. Pannasonics doesn't support the mkv format on SD cards according to user guide. Which video formats should I convert my .mkv files to? I am unfamiliar with those listed- AVCHD,MP4, MPO & MPEG2 for video

THANKS FOR YOUR HELP.Even though I am 80, I usually can handle most somewhat technical devices. I am not upset to admit I do suffer memory losses and such from time to time. Most other 80 year olds I know have same issues.
