Sony BDV-E370 Blu Ray Home Theatre conf help please

Postby PhoenixNZ » Tue Jul 26, 2011 12:23 pm

WOW. My head's about to explode. I've read alot in a short time, and now I'm really confused :?:

So I have a BDV-E370, and I'm trying to get a conf file together that will work.

I have followed the instructions and my GetProtocolInfo Sink is very small on info:
Code: Select all
http-get:*:audio/L16:DLNA.ORG_PN=LPCM;DLNA.ORG_FLAGS=9d700000000000000000000000000000,
http-get:*:audio/mpeg:DLNA.ORG_PN=MP3;DLNA.ORG_FLAGS=9d700000000000000000000000000000,
http-get:*:audio/x-ms-wma:DLNA.ORG_PN=WMABASE;DLNA.ORG_FLAGS=9d700000000000000000000000000000


It mentions Audio, but not video or images.

My Get Device XML is

So I needed to set the UserAgentSearch to UPnP/1.0 DLNADOC/1.50 for the latest PSM, 1.30.1 to identify the BDV, but every video file is in the #TRANSCODE# folder, and if I select it I get No playable file available

I know this unit can play it all, AVI, MKV, DIVX, and so on, from an external hard drive, but I wish to stream it from my pc or other device.

So, I need help in setting up a working conf file.

Please can someone help. Any further information that is needed, I'll do my best to provice.

Thank you. Rob

Have you tried the ExSport Build? It includes support for Sony BDP Bluray players, which have a similar dlna profile to the above. If that does the trick, then further relevant info is here:

http://www.ps3mediaserver.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=11514
http://www.ps3mediaserver.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=6930

EDIT: and a SonyBluray.conf for BDP players (US models) to start with:
Code: Select all

Thanks infidel

I did see the ExSport Build in a post, but was getting so lost with options, and possibility of having to build with patches, that I must have skipped some info.

The unit I've got is in New Zealand, so probably more akin to the EU model, but this will be a start, and I'll read the threads you've mentioned.

Once I get this going on my Win XP machine, I'll be able to get it operational on my UnRaid box, where it will live.

On a side note, I'm gonna have to do a lot of reading for getting a WebUI up for the Unraid box also. But that another topic for another thread.

Will post how I get on. Cheers. Rob

OK, so I got that to work with AVI's, but MKV video stutters so I'll try changing the conf to eu settings, hopefully.

I did change the conf you gave me just to to identify my unit as follows:
Code: Select all
# ps3mediaserver renderer profile for Sony Bluray Disc Players (2010 Bravia Internet Video-enabled models)
# Refer to PS3.conf for help
RendererName=Sony BLU-RAY HOME THEATRE
RendererIcon=bravia.png
UserAgentSearch=UPnP/1.0 DLNADOC/1.50
UserAgentAdditionalHeader=X-AV-Client-Info
UserAgentAdditionalHeaderSearch=(cn="Sony Corporation"; mn="BLU-RAY HOME THEATRE SYSTEM")

Note added Home Theatre System
The RendererIcon I also had to change as ExSport Build didn't have the sony_bdp.png file

So off to dig out the EU settings and see if the stuttering disappears.

Update to follow.

Edit: So far I can't find the info to change the conf to eu settings. Looking on the bluray player, all avi and mkv have a mpeg icon below the file.

Any advise on adjustment to my conf file?

The best analysis of Sony Bluray DLNA that I know of is here in the Serviio forums. Serviio can't play web streams but otherwise supports these players really well; I'd recommend installing it so as to have a point of comparison for playback issues.

As you can see native mkv playback stutters for them too and the solution is to transcode to mpeg, i.e. try commenting out the 'Supported = f:mkv' line in your conf.

EDIT: oops, forgot to mention that you need further patches to get transcoding going :). Try my pms.jar, if it works I'll elaborate on the patch. Make sure your renderer's conf includes the lines:
Code: Select all
ForceJPGThumbnails=true
TranscodedVideoFileSize=370

I'll try that tonight.

I did try Seriio, but neither the PS3 or Home Theatre saw any files, and by that time, I was getting pis##d. too many late nights trying to get this going. :shock:

Thanks for helping me out.

So I shot home at Lunch and dropped your pms.jar into the UnRaid Slackware system, and booted up the E370 Home Theatre unit.

I had to remove all upnp server and scanned for new servers, as it only showed the #Transcode# folders under my season folders.

But then all video files were available. I quickly played a SD avi file. All Good.

Played the 720P mkv file, and low and behold, no stuttering! :D YES! :D Carried on playing for ten minutes and no stutter at all. I tried fast forward and when I resumed play, there was stutter, but a pause and then play again cured that. I'm not worried about ffw right now. Happy Chap! :D

My conf file already had those lines as it was a copy from your earlier post, just with UserAgentAdditionalHeaderSearch=(cn="Sony Corporation"; mn="BLU-RAY HOME THEATRE SYSTEM") line changed.

Now, do I leave well enough alone?? or should I need further patching. I will experiment later tonight with some other AVI's and a MP4 or two as well.

infidel Your help has been greatly appreciated.

Is there a way I can add the sony_bdp.pnb into the jar without a rebuild.

I tried to open with a zip program and drop this png file into the folder, but after PS3MS wouldn't start.

Right, it's just a plain-vanilla roll-your-own version :).

PhoenixNZ wrote:Is there a way I can add the sony_bdp.pnb


I'm on linux, but setting
Code: Select all
RendererIcon=<full path to sony_bdp.png>
in SonyBluray.conf does the trick for me. I haven't checked, but Windows filepaths may need double backslashes or may need to be unix-ified by replacing backslash with forwardslash.
