View Full Version : 42PDL7906h/12 - Playing Side-By-Side mkv-files

Hi there,

According to the specifications of this TV, mkv-files could be played, using a USB-stick, connected directly to the TV.
At the moment, I've 4 Side-By-Side mkv-files. Because it's hard to play SBS-movies with subtitles with my blu-rayplayer (bdp7500s2/12), I want to play them directly on the TV, using a USB-stick.

But.. from the 4 SBS-mkv-files, 2 are playing correctly. One of them can be played in 2D-mode (left and right screen), but I can't select 3D -> Next to each other. The 4th file, can't be played by the TV. Video codecs are the same for all files, audio codec is different for 4th file (see note).

Does someone know why some of the files can be played by the TV and others can't? All 4 files can be played with the blu-rayplayer, but then I think it's impossible to show subtitles (srt, sub/idx, sub,..) correctly in 3D-mode. Also on the computer, I can play all files (in 2D-mode).

Can this problem be solved in a future update of the firmware of the TV? Or will/can the problem with the subtitles on the blu-rayplayer(s) from philips in 3D-mode be solved in a future update?

Thx in advance!


note:
more info about codecs:
- 2 working files + file I can't change to 3D mode -> video: MPEG4/ISO/AVC and audo: AC3
- 1 file TV doesn't recognize -> video: MPEG4/ISO/AVC and audo: DTS

Hi,

your 3D SbS files need to have an EXACT resolution of 1920x1080.

Hi,

Thanks for your quick reply, Toengel!

Indeed, the file I can't convert to 3D-mode, is 1920x800 and not 1920x1080.
The other file, that isn't recognized by the TV, can't be played because of the audio-format (DTS). I found in another tread that this kind of audio can't be played..

Will these 'problems' be solved in the future?

Thx!

Philips Tv don't accept DTS audio.

If You havent read the help section it clearly says 3d is not supported via usb

Well, then the help section is clearly incorrect, as 3D _does_ work via USB, just with a few restrictions, as Toengel mentioned.

thats weird, because when im playing any sorts of 3d files on my tv via usb the selection of 3d is automaticly grayed out

I think it depends on witch version of firmware you have.

It is indeed possible to play 3D-movies via USB (probably depending on the firmware).
And like Steffe said, there are some restrictions:
- no DTS sound (if you have such a file, you can convert this to AC3)
- resolution HAS to be 1920 x 1080

A resolution of 1280x720 seems to work as well for side-by-side 3D movies.
