View Full Version : BDP5200 cannot play DTS audio in MKV container

12-02-2012, 04:48 PM
I tried F/W versions 1.16, 1.35, 1.55 and 1.61. Though the video plays, I hear no audio.

Other formats play fine and I can hear the audio.

Here is the mediainfo :

ID : 2
Format : DTS
Format/Info : Digital Theater Systems
Mode : 16
Format settings, Endianness : Big
Codec ID : A_DTS
Duration : 1h 39mn
Bit rate mode : Constant
Bit rate : 3646 Kbps
Channel(s) : 6 channels
Channel positions : Front: L C R, Side: L R, LFE
Sampling rate : 44.1 KHz
Bit depth : 16 bits
Compression mode : Lossy
Stream size : 2.53 GiB (31%)
Language : English
Default : Yes
Forced : No

DTS seems to be a supported format. I am playing this MKV file off a powered hard disk connected to the USB. This file plays fine on VLC player on PC.

Bit rate : 3646 Kbps

Probably it is DTS-HD MA?

Probably it is DTS-HD MA?

You maybe right.
The XLS sheet in this thread (http://www.supportforum.philips.com/en/showthread.php?1067-Supported-CODEC-overview-for-ALL-models-%28TV-HTS-and-Blu-ray%29), states that the max bitrate is 1.54Mbps

However, I thought I did play HD 6 channel DTS via blu-ray.

Can someone from Philips mods please confirm that indeed such a high bitrate is not supported.

The product brochure for BDP5200 does say that DTS-HD is supported.

The XLS sheet

That xls states that the following audio codecs are supported in MKV container: PCM, AC-3, DTS core, MPEG, MP3, WMA, AAC, HE-AAC. As you can see, no DTS-HD.

From the product brochure here (http://download.p4c.philips.com/files/b/bdp5200_05/bdp5200_05_pss_eng.pdf)

with MKV (or any media file) only DTS CORE is supported - not the HD formats...

On Blu-ray also the HD formats are supported - as written in the product specification.
