I’ve had my WDTV for nearly a year (I’m sure there is a firmware update due) but find that ripped bluray ISO file playback to be very problematic. Old films seem to play back fine, but most new films either wont play correctly at all, or run for a minute and revert to a soundless, slow motion, jerky playback. I’m feeling it revolves around the audio codec, in that when most of these files start, my Yamaha RX-V2700 displays the audio codec version (EG DTS, DolbyDigital) and all is OK, but the problem begins when the audio recognition is lost. Some films seem to play for 5 minutes before this happens.
I have also found that those BluRay files that do play, there is a noticeable jerkiness, particularly apparent in slow panning shots. This is reminiscent of old pirate copies of NTSC video and the 4:3 drop down problem (being in Australia and using PAL, 25/50Hz). I now set the output to 1080P 60hz and this seems to cure that problem (so is it NTSC related in someway??)
in either BluRay or standard DVD, ISO file playback will only show the main film and none of the extras… Or does anyone know different?
