I have watched a few youtube videos. a couple from Rev3games, but I think they are in HD anyway, so of course it looked pretty good.

Curious to see if you have tried watching YouTube videos through your 790? Were you impressed with their quality, or do they seem lackluster?

Youtube on the S790 is limited to standard definition regardless

Okay, yeah I thought the video from YouTube on the 790 was poor, just wasn't sure if it was just something wrong on my end.


Why is it limited to SD? Thanks.

No idea. Guess its the way the client was originally written. The new client (app) found on the 3100 and 5100 supports HD streams.

Can it be fixed/updated with a future firmware update??

It could, but it's highly unlikely. The 590 and 390 got a new firmware today, and youtube is still SD on those.

Just one small question..


Anyone has a synology NAS who got the streaming of various video types and codecs working with the standard DSM mediaserver feature without 3rd party packages like Serviio?

With mine, the MIME types show up wrong with the standard mediaserver. I've also set custom MIME types: avi=video/x-ms-video,wav=audio/x-wav,m4v=video/mp4,mp4=video/mp4,mkv=video/x-msvideo

Then I reindexed my library but it still didn't work. All the video files are M2TS, but the should be MP4 or something else.


Any suggestions?


krikke

Solved it after many testing and research.


Went to media server > dma compatibility > device list > and selected 'generic DLNA' for my Sony bdp s790 bly-ray player instead of the 'sony blu-ray disk profile'.

Everything else is set to default, no custom MIME-typer whatsoever. MP4 and MKV files are showing up right, not M2TS anymore.



Hopes this helps somebody.

New update today - M13.R.0491. Seems to have fixed the TrueHD audio dropout problem with Total Recall (2012). Not sure what else (if anything) is fixed.

Sure could, but only Sony can make that call. You could try posting on their forum. Keep pestering them ... they might listen. Stranger things have happened.

Could you test, to make sure Cinavia hasn't being enabled on DLNA ?

At last??!!! Testing Total Recall now, and so far the past 30+ minutes and not one hiccup!


But geez, did this update, for their OWN branded movie, take this long to release? Sure hope this is not a view of the future (firmware update frequency) support from Sony. I will never buy a Samsung again ever, due to their poor quality and total lack of support.

Maybe - I don't normally use DLNA but have a few MKV's on my NAS. I don't have any ISO's.

Almost perfect with New Firmware:

Chapter 9: First drop out for about 1 second, just before he unlocks the door to the apartment. Several others during Chapter 9, plus video and audio went out of sync. I shut the movie down to watch the News, then continued after. Only other drop out was in the scene with Mathias. So, in total, about 5 drop outs during the whole movie, and almost all in Chapter 9.

Now, when will OPPO give us the FW update for my 93, and I can try Chapter 9 with it.

I loaded the new firmware last night. The most noticeable change was when I tried to "Display Info" while streaming Netflix. Before, the streaming speed was displayed in large characters in the lower right side of the screen. Now, only minimal information is displayed, in very small characters, in the upper left hand corner. Has anyone else had this experience? This update was definitely a step backward for me.

Pushing info in the Netflix app has always displayed info in the top left hand corner.

Guys ... a new app is now available on Sony Entertainment Network Portal. Its actually a Opera TV app ... so appears in both places. It won't appear however in the XMB directly.


Its called "LandscapeHD 1080p" and provides HD quality "landscape music videos". It is a mix of some of the world's best classical and instrumental music and carefully crafted films of natural and man made subject matter. There's around 100 music videos available and the videos can be shuffled in the app (under settings).


I've being involved in the channel over the years - so this is a bit of self promotion. But I do encourage S790 owners to give the app a go ... and let us know what you think (of both the app and the content).


Its all free BTW !


Thx.

I installed the new firmware M13.R.0491 and DLNA works fine for mkv containers.


(I am using QNAP x86 with Twonky 7.0.13. I had to modify the Sony Blu-Ray profile for the mkvs to be playable on the S790.)

If I am not mistaken the Total Recall audio dropout problem is not firmware related but disc related and not every disc exhibits this behavior. I've never tried my copy on the BDP-S790, but it has played without a hiccup on my BDP-S5000ES and BDP-103. I will try it on my BDP-S790 this weekend and report back.
