Default Panasonic DMP-BDT350/300

I have both the DMP-BDT350 and the DMP-BDT300 players they are essentially the same except the 300 lacks DLNA that allows the player to access multimedia files and your computer through your network.
The main features for me is that along with regular 3D support it also supports the checkerboard format (1080p) that is needed for my two Samsung DLP tvs. Mitsubishi also makes DLP models that support checkerboard. Another great feature is that it has two HDMI outputs so if you purchased a new 3D set that supports HDMI 1.4 it does not obsolete your receiver that that HDMI 1.3.

I was thinking of getting one of these next spring but I wonder if I should wait for the 2011's to come out?

These may be the only models that will offer checkerboard. If you have a 3D capable DLP set this may your only chance to get a 3D Blu-ray player. The exception is Mitsubishi is making an adapter for their 3D sets that will allow you to use any 3D device (including any model 3D Blu-ray player). However it only works with their sets - they put in a EDID check that looks for Mitsubishi DLP sets.

A comment on this feature compared to the PS3.
The PS3 appears to do a much better job of upscaling content from the PC. I have tried it with AVI files and jpeg photos. In all instances the PS3 produces a much more enjoyable viewing experience.

Also, the PS3 handles more file formats than the Panasonic.

On the plus side the Panasonic has a N wireless adapter versus the G wireless adapter in the PS3. Also if needed the included N adapter can be uses with the included USB cable so it can be moved around for better reception.

Both units deliver outstanding Blu-ray and DVD performance and the Panasonic offers 7 channels analog output as well as HDMI and optical.

The Panasonic also comes with a 3D Blu-ray demo disc that gives you some outstanding 3D demos. This disc is playable on other Blu-ray players.

Don't forget the Panasonic has dual HDMI outputs.I don't think Sony can do a firmware update to fix this..lol

That was mentioned in the specs, but on the main HDMI connection will only work with a 1.3a cable (or higher). When I got my first Panasonic I tried the main HDMI output with a HDMI cable labeled 1.3 and it would not give me any picture on my Samsung DLP (it would work on the secondary HDMI output). I then tried a different cable labeled 1.3a and it worked fine on the main output. What a difference an "a" makes!

Default Limitations

I talked today with a person from the Israeli importers of Panasonic and she told me that the 300 cannot be used unless a 3D TV is attached. Sounds like BS to me (they are selling the DVD player only as a package with their 3D TV) but I want to make sure.

Thanks

Danny

Absolute BS - I have three 300's and one 350. Two are hooked up to regular (non 3D) HD TVs. The only mode you cannot select on this player is the tru HD 3D mode if the set is not 1.4 HDMI 3D capable. You can select the other 3D modes (including checkerboard) as long at the set is 1080p capable (such as a 3D DLP set).

I just received the 100 series 3D Blue Ray Player as part of the 3D starter kit when I purchased my VT25 TV.

Is there any major differences between the 300 series and the 100 series besdies the 300 series having built in wireless?

Would I see a difference in picture quality?

I am considering selling the 100 series and buying the 300 series, I just want to know if it will be worth it.

I also currently do not have a receiver so for now I will have to plug the HDMI into the tv.

Welcome to the Forum, italnstallion99.

Did you review the thread before posing your questions? If not, pretty please do so pretty please. The answers to your questions have been covered.

Succinctly, especially if you don't have a receiver, I question why you'd want to sell a 1xx player to replace it with a dual HDMI, multichannel analog out 3xx player when you'd be paying more for connectivity that you won't use.

If you put a SD card in it then will resume play from the last time you watched a movie or start again. It worked on mine with The A-Team and thats a few weeks unplugged.

Did you post to the thread you intended to?

Coincidentally/FWIW, I recently encountered another disc (CBS Films' / Sony Pictures' Beastly; Alex Pettyfer) that wouldn't even access the BD-Live portal without an SD card in place, even with a 4GB USB drive in either the front or back port. I would've preferred a more, um, "intelligent design" for the player that can use either media. It's a trait that dates the player IMO as I don't think most players are designed this way now (?).

Default BD350 firmware issue - V1.85

Hi. I recently downloaded and installed this level and my player now only plays DVD's and only about 1/3 of BD disks. I called their call centre - I'll just say "NOT a satisfactory response!!!". I'm waiting for a service call now. Luckily I have a BD80 as well and can see the BD disks the 3D player no longer plays.

If you haven't downloaded this level I suggest you don't - stay at v1.81 as it worked well and I had no problems. IF a manufacturer reads this - PLEASE have a way to back out versions that don't work instead of making us go through the mess I am experiencing...

Welcome to the site . . . young padawan. Were you having a particular problem with the player that firmware release notes said the upgrade would remedy? If not, it's yet another example of an IMO good working premise: Do not automatically upgrade your firmware. Unless you're experiencing a problem, wait at least a few months and watch this and other discussion fora for any issues.

Unfortunately, if indeed the problem that has now arisen can be compellingly proven to be both broader (i.e., other guys experience the same thing) and reproducible, you/we will have to wait for a fix. If it can not, then you may be looking at having to send the player to Panasonic for them to revert the firmware.

If you can name six to ten BDs that were playing for you before but which aren't now that might be helpful. The more titles you can name that now don't play which did before, the more likelihood of finding some other similarly-situated owners.

P.S. - There is more traffic in the AVS Forum owners' thread for this player.

I have both the BDT350 and BDT300 with the latest firmware. I have experienced no problems with the latest firmware. It doesn't happen often but sometimes a firmware update will mess up a device. Your best bet is to call Panasonic and find out if they can send you a firmware "fix" to correct the corrupted firmware. Of course their is always the possibility that the hardware in he device has a problem.
