Question about Panasonic DMP-BD30K Blu-Ray Player

1 Answer

Display flashes white very briefly

I recently purchaced the bd30k, it's connected to a Mits. WD-65833 dlp High def TV via a 700hd hdmi monster cable. Almost immediately a flash of white screen periodicaly happened. Not regularly, but sometimes worse than other times. As soon as I made the proper setup settings it seemed to minimize the flashes, but not eliminate them. I tried swapping the hdmi cables, but it didn't help. What next? I haven't seen such of an occourance before.

    I have the same problem with a BD35. Here's my story:



    Onkyo TX-SR805 AVR

    Panasonic DMP-BD35 blu-ray player

    Samsung LN52A650 LCD TV



    The devices are connected with HDMI, player to AVR and AVR to TV. The problem is sporadic screen flashes at random intervals from a few seconds to a few minutes apart. I get the flashes even when the player is sitting at the splash screen with no disc. I did the following tests:



    ...Swapped cables (have four 1.3b cat2) between player to AVR and AVR to TV. Any combination still flashes.

    ...Hooked player to all AVR HDMI inputs. All flash.

    ...Hooked player direct to TV. No flashes.

    ...Hooked an Xbox 360 (using HDMI) to AVR. No flashes.

    ...Used component video and optical audio from player to AVR. No flashes.



    The tests indicate HDMI packet dropping between the player and the AVR. I don't know if it is due to the Panasonic source or the Onkyo sink. Both devices are flashed with most recent released firmwares (AVR is 1.08, player is 1.5)



    I don't know how to debug any further. I don’t have any other HDMI devices to source with.

Hi,The settings on the PS3 are sending the video signal throught the HDMI port. Either go through the XMB via system settings, display settings,or if you only have a low def tv then hold the power for 5 seconds (when you turn it on i belive) and it resets it. You may have to adjust the audio settings at the same time, because if you pressed yes when the HDMI was first connected, you agreed to send the audio signal via HDMI as well.

Powersurge made my HD setting revert to low def.


Your TV plays High Def material through either Input 4 (uses component cables R,G,B) or through Input 5 (Uses DVI cable).
Today most equipment uses HDMI cable for High Def or it may have a component (RGB) output that you can use. The DVI hookup is best, so you need a HDMI to DVI cable or Component Cables (Red, Green, Blue). You need some source that OUTPUTS High def (ex. 1080i) either through HDMI or component cable. You need to either connect the component cable(R,G,B) from the source to the Input 4 on the TV or connect the HDMI to DVI cable from the source to the Input 5.
You need to set the AV source on the TV to AV5 (if you are using the DVI input) or AV4 (if you are using component cables).
If you want to play Highdef source like Blue Ray then you can just connect the output of the blu ray player to your Tv using either the HDMI to DVI cable or component cable (Red, Green, Blue) and set the TV input to AV5 (for HDMI/DVI) or AV4 (for component).
But if you are trying to get Free High Def from an antenna then you will need to have a component that can OUTPUT high def. The $40 converter boxes don't do this - they simply convert the Digital signal to Analog (non high def). What you need is a High Def TUNER that OUTPUTS High Def. I was looking for one for this same reason and ordered the centronics ZAT 502 HD. But it cost about $80. Then I saw that Tivo had an upgrade deal where I could upgrade my existing Series 2 Tivo to Tivo HD for $99. It has a High Def Tuner in it. So I cancelled my order with Centronics and got the Tivo. In any case if you want Over the air HD you will need a High Def Tuner that will OUTPUT 1080.

1080p high def issues


The HDMI cable I had originally wasn't a good enough quality. I purchased an HDMI v1.3 cable and everything works at 1080p. You don't need to pay loads for a cable, got mine from Play for £9.99.

Only get 480p


Hi.

Your friend is wrong you will get same resolution of 1080i whether you use component or Hdmi.
But you will need a high def input to tv in order to get this resolution EG high def cable box or satellite.
