Panasonic DMP-BDT 500 Got issues
My Panny Blu Ray player is causing me concern - I love it but this doesnt seem right and I would like to know if anyone else has issues please?
It keeps having issues on play back of certain discs and I am not sure if it is having pairing issues with my fairly old Sony av amp - 5400es or it's the player itself ?
When I watch certain discs it has gremlins (but I also had issues with my old Sony 370 blu ray player and wondered if the Sony amp might be at fault), it freezes on certain discs (not all, some are fine) and sometimes omits what I can only describe as high pitched wineing noise.
Films with definite issues are : Jurrassic Park, Frankenweenie, Drive, Alice in Wonderland (new version), Lorax, Harry Potter Deathly H 2 and possibly a couple of others that I cannot remember just now. Other discs (and I have loads) it plays faultlessly. Very weird.
I bought it from Richer Sounds (without the 5 year warranty but without looking for the receipt it must still be within the manufacturers warranty as it is not that old), its multi regional too but I doubt that has anything to do with it.
It is all linked to a Panny GT30 42" TV, which is another issue ! Posted before on this and had loads of advice (thanks Oldboy et all) but it still automatically switches to the tv input on my Sony amp when I turn the thing on using the Veira link option (sound only / switches to the right hdmi video input).
So all in all it fustrates at times. What would you do ?
Advice and feedback appreciated - thinking of taking it back to RS and moaning, perhaps I should have waited for the Sony 790 ?
I cant help but think my Sony amp might have some sort of issue though ? Maybe to do with hdmi handshake, but I have tried everything.
Firmware is always up to date on both tv and blu ray player and unless I am missing something I do not think the older Sony 5400 can be updated by any firmware ? The amp is not 3d ready so sound goes to av amp whilst the blu ray player goes directly to the hdmi 2 input on the GT 30.
Any ideas please?
