Problem


#1

hi everyone! i have panasonic lcd full hd tx-l37u10e,and i bought wd tv live media player.

i ve downloaded 2 movies from the internet, 720p.blueray.x264.dts and when i play it the picture has a white dots.

when i play divx everything is ok. does anyone knows why this happends?

tv and lcd are connected with hdmi cabel.

p.s. sorry if my english is bad.

this is a picture of a movie,and you can see the problem:

It looks like macro blocks in the picture which could be a couple things. The bitrate may be too high for the player,  i have streamed 40Mbit video to it without problems.  The key is it must have a good connection to the data. If it is a network make sure it can get full bandwidth. If it is a hard drive over usb make sure the drive is working properly and the files are not fragmented.

Hmmm.   It *does* look like a bad encode.

The WDTV won’t do this if it’s choked for bandwidth; it’ll just pause and stutter. 

If you  bring that file up on your PC, do you see the same thing?


#4

the movie is on hdd (transcend),i played it on the computer and it looks ok (i"m not sure if my laptop is HD,but when i played that movie there where no white dots like on wd tv,it looked ok)


#5

Can you post the output of MediaInfo for one of those files so we can inspect that?
