Problem in Panasonic config file comes with V1.22

Postby arix » Wed May 25, 2011 1:18 pm

Hi,
I have tried the latest PS3 with the built in Panasonic conf file
and found it's not working with my Panasonic V20 (TX-P50V20).
Since I have old panasonic conf file (from this forum)
I compered line by line between the old Panasonic conf file and the one comes with V1.22 , and found that after changing MediaInfo=false (instead true)
all working great.
well, not all , found also minor problem with ISO DVD (PAL, 4:3) , the picture
was in the right side of screen instead the middle.
To solve this minor issue i changed the following:
MaxVideoWidth=0
MaxVideoHeight=0
also removed this line:
CustomMencoderOptions=-vf softskip,expand=::::1:16\/9:4

Best Regards
Arix

Check http://code.google.com/p/ps3mediaserver ... ?id=979#c2 ;)
Code: Select all
MaxVideoWidth=0
MaxVideoHeight=0

This change will not help you in any way.
Some movies if they will have bigger resolution than 1080p, PMS will automatically downconvert them to maximal resolution if not set to 0=unlimited. It will avoid you to see data corrupted or video not compatible etc.
If you will have e.g. full-sbs movie, it is impossible to play it also with MEncoder without this lines:
Code: Select all
MaxVideoWidth=1920
MaxVideoHeight=1080

Now MEncoder knows that video have to be also resized so it will be renderer compatible.
You fixed problem by removing this line:
Code: Select all
CustomMencoderOptions=-vf softskip,expand=::::1:16\/9:4

Unfortunatelly for some AR, mostly visible on DVD images MEncoder sometimes compute AR badly so final video is moved to right so only half of picture is visible.
it is known bug...maybe you can experiment with MEncoder so you will find parameter which will fix it ;)
Or better, in almost all cases DVD format is always with black bars not stripped so it is not needed to use this "add black bars" hack. It will not be so hard to ignore this "expand" paramerer if DVD image will be detected...

New version of my custom build can be found here:

It also fixes picture corruption when "expand=" is present in custom MEncoder settings string and DVD format is played.
