    Playing a file - doesn't work as expected

    I'm trying to get some reference MPEG4 files so we can test PNM and other functionality of TV.

    I found a file on a website called h264info. The URL is http://www.h264info.com/?page_id=20
    I downloaded the 2nd file "The Simpsons Movie - 1080p Trailer". It's 140Mb and 2 mins long.

    When I play this on my 6188 TV (with latest 173.60 FW) I get no sound and a stretched picture!
    Video is 1920x800 @ 23.97 fps (good test for flickering ambilight)
    Audio is AAC 5.1.
    I am playing this mp4 file off a USB stick.

    According to the TV help system, it should be capable of playing AAC audio - but it clearly fails with this file. I hear nothing.

    I guess the file is 21:9 ratio, but it's stretching the picture to fit 16:9. If I set 'format' option to "Auto Zoom" then I get black bars top/bottom and the correct aspect ratio Every other option (including 'unscaled') stretches the display. Surely 'unscaled' means do no stretching?

    I tried both but gravity feels audio only, I do not know why ... fast and furious while being a trailer with bustling scenes you see the problem of pnm, but we knew, there was some small miglioramente compared to past but we still have to work a lot in my opinion ...

    Gravity is a 2K HD film - I seem to remember something about these TVs not playing 2K/4K HD files.

    But, back to the Simpsons;
    1) Did you hear anything? (Is my 6xx8 TV crippled for AAC 5.1 as well as DTS?)
    2) Did you view picture in correct aspect ratio?

    I can think of better tests for PNM. I think just capturing some Bloomberg ticker scrolling to a MP4 file will be enough.
