    Probably because AFAIK the LE40C650 doesn't display at 24Fps.. ;)

    Well, the manual quotes 1080/24p as compatible. I think it's just me not liking 24p as reproduced in the home, it's different to the cinema which isn't perfect either but we're used to it.

    Anyone else noticing problems with playing DVDs on this player. I have been going through some of my Simpsons DVDs lately and they just dont look as sharp as when using my normal DVD player. I think the player may be trying to upscale the DVD, can I stop it from doing this?

    Hello all. Please can anyone tell me if the UK version, the DMP-BDT110EB plays .avi files (Divx,Xvid) from the front USB port and/or the network share. After reading thru forums there's a lot of confusion of whether it does or not. It seems to suggest that it does from the panasonic.co.uk website. Please can someone who owns this great bluray player, has the latest firmware test this and let me know.

    Cheers, Norm :)

    Personally, I don't bother with the front USB (FAT32 issue) but have you not read posts # 71 - 85 :confused:

    Hi Jason, Thanks for replying. Yes sorry like I said I got a bit confused. It seems that over in the US Panasonic don't ship any Bluray players with DivX because of licensing costs. Anyway found a reply on the BDT310 Now Available thread. The only reason for asking is some of my back catalogue is stuck as avi's. Going forward I'll play most files as mkv/m2ts on my Sony Bravia telly. Thanks

    If you format your USB drive with exFat then there are no (practical) file size restrictions. I successfully played a 6GB MKV using this method.

    if you still have Windows XP then you will need the following update for exFat to be recognised: Update for Windows XP (KB955704) Description of the exFAT file system driver update package

    Sorry, keep forgetting this is an international Forum :blush:

    I find my UK model plays just about anything :smashin:

    The only real problem I have is with buffering (stuttering) problems which can affect some larger mkv files (especially high bit-rate 3D)

    I have also noticed that DVD's don't look as good as they should and tend to have a lot of ringing due to the poor upscaling. I'm using the drive in conjunction with my Panny GT30 so isn't an issue arising from the panel as all my other players reproduce the material fine.

    The unit is also whisper quiet. For those users who have a noisy unit, my see if where you are placing the player is solid, as some hollow tables can really hum.

    What I would like to know, is their anyway to set the player to source resolution? I don't want the BDT110 to touch the material, as i want my video processor to handle it for better picture quality.

    There are a fair few options within "DISPLAY" (on remote). You'll probably want to make sure they're all turned off (or set to 0).

    I've played around with all those and feel its just to do with poor upscaling. Witnessed it a few times before, especially with old consoles being upscaled through my AVR. The DVDO edge however handles them much better.

    Don't suppose their is anyway to set native on the player, bit of a shame as I was hoping to use it as an all rounder.

    Hi all
    BD110 initial thoughts:
    picked it up this week, and plugged in the LAN last night (using d-link 'ethernet over mains cable').
    the player found my network, NAS etc without issue or intervention on my part (and I discovered my NAS was running twonky server, so was able to play music, not tried the video serving yet).
    auto download of f/w 1.7 went ok (d/l took a good 20 minutes though...)
    The Connect service looks like it has potential, but quite slow to navigate between each 'tablet', and you-tube was woeful. might be my ethernet setup though. Quite like being able to run Shoutcast radio, although slight overkill compared to plugging my aging Palm TX running pTunes into my amp.

    Quite liked the picasa wallpaper. No sight of BBC iPlayer yet though :-(

    have spun a couple of DVD's through the player, and have to say, wasn't exactly blown away by the picture quality. First step was to turn off all the picture processing, but looks like some proper tweaking and testing will be required to get something satisfactory.

    will hopefully be more impressed when Lovefilm send my first blu-ray.
    cheers

    HI.

    I've tried to use the DLNA thing to play mkv files, but the player cannot see them, although it could see and play AVi's. So i put the mkv (7gb) on an 8gb usb stick and it played fine. Was now thinking of getting an external HDD to store MKV's on, rather than playing around with the network sire of things (seems that it will be jerky over the network anyway), so has anyone used a HDD, or what would you recommend? Or should i just get a 32 gb usb stick as i cannot see that any mkv file will be bigger than that?

    It has a major problem acting as a DLNA client.

    You need to read post #85 and before for the solution.

    Does the 110 put out DTS-MA over optical? over HDMI it is ok.

    No player will output DTS-MA over optical due to bandwidth limits. They will send DTS core.

    Hi, I'm having major problems with lipsync on an LGBD660 which does not have audio delay so thinking of changing out for BDT110. Can you advise the max setting in ms for audio delay in the menu?

    (My sorry story here http://www.avforums.com/forums/lg-f...vise-watch-dvds-pcm-stereo-cure-lip-sync.html)

    It's 250ms.

    However, my experience is that it often needs to be predictive ;) since it's really the video that needs delaying :D

    I've just (finally) had a response from Panasonic about my "fan" noise issue - they just say it's normal and disc dependent. I'm not happy because, on discs by one particular studio, the noise is horrendous - like the drive on the Xbox 360 or fan on the original PS3 at full tilt.
