First the obvious: Does the new palyer play a DVD (to check the connections)

Second: Has your disc played in another player? Try a friend or take to Best Buy...

 

The original release of the BDP-S1 introduced in Dec `05 didnt play DVDitHD discs till March `06

and the first BDP-S300 (2007) base firmware needed updating too, but I should think the 350 OK

out of the box

Thank you fot the answer.

1. Yes, the 350 plays well not self-burned DVD and Blu-ray.

2. I have only tested my BD-R disc in the LG BW-H10N (firmware 6) I used to burn it, and it's working 100%.

In the 350, the disk is well recodnized as BD-R, but plays with black output and no sound.

 

Thansk,

Ben

Just tried out Sony BDP-S350 and it works ok with DVDit ProHD made disc - but it is very slow to recognize the disc and slow to go from menu to menu. The Samsung BDP 1500 worked well but much faster than the Sony (displaying the disc and going from menu to menu)

 

As you can see the above poster was able to make a suitable disc for a S350. PC based players (like on your burning machine) seem to be much more forgiving than making one that will work on a player.

 

1) Did you declare the project burn as BluRay rather than DVD? You should be able to examine the directory structure on the disc and see everything in the "BDMV" folder.

 

2) I have always used DVDitProHD to make a BluRay .iso file first, then use the drive supplied software to burn that .iso

 

3) Perhaps you should post the details on what the source material was and your "HD encoding" preferences. I have used "constant bit rate" and "25 MPBS". Going higher than that would be pointless as that is the HDV tape bit rate.

and what if you are coming from , for example , an Avid DNxHD ntsc 220 mbps file , the default superior settings for Bd vbr is 24 mbps target and 30 mbps maximum and do a good job

 

I am preencoding my m2v files using Adobe mediaencoder for that using 2 pass encoding , settings 25 mbps average and 30 mbps max

Hi,

It seems that the problem is that the m2v file used to author the blu-ray is a 1440x1080 50i file comning from HDV media.

I have just tested a disc authored from a 1920x1080 50i m2v that plays perfectly on the Sony BDP S350.

I don't know where precisely is the problem. 1440x1080 isn't it a "legal" blu-ray format?

Did somebody already succed with 1440x1080 blu-ray playback on a Sony blu-ray player?

Thank you for your inputs,

Ben

Both 1440 x 1080 with rectangular ( 1,33 ) pixels or 1920 x 1080 with square pixels works well , do you have dvdit pro configured for encoding your source file ?

 

Also, from what app are you importing your hd files ?

I strongly suspect your problem is trying to encode before DVDitProHD. I have fed it unencoded PPro/Cineform .avi files in 1080x1440 format and DVDitProHD does a great job transcoding to 1080x1920.....since 1080x1440 is only BluRay legal as an AVCHD file. DVDitProHD is an mpg only prodect at present.
