MKV files not playing on BRAVIA KDL-60NX801

Postby jellyhead » Tue Aug 24, 2010 4:17 am

Most files play OK on this TV using PMS v1.20.409-BETA but MKV and M2TS filesshow black screen and sound only. Per suggestions I tried moving the TsMuxer encoder to the top but it still doesn't work.

Check your mkv/m2ts files with MediaInfo, Sony Bravia are limited to H264 Profile HP@L4.1.

@Illico: Is MediaInfo an extra Softwaretool or a Windowstool.
Yesterday I checked my PMS options an deactivated the H264 profile point.
After deactivation mkv's are working on PMS to Bravia.
But some mkv's are not fitted in my Bravia TV. How can I solve this problem?

@Illico: And which data of MediaInfo is important for me? For example what is HP@L4.1?
Sorry I'm a rookie in streaming.

Sorry for writing so late.
My main problem is, that many mkv movies are not fitted in my Bravia TV.
If I stream over my PS3 these movies are fitted in my Bravia TV.
So I have the problem just when I'm streaming from PC to Bravia TV without PS3.

Here are my datas.

Maybe anybody can solve my problem with fitting in the mkv in my TV?
In my oppinion it has to do with the settings.

Thanks for your efforts.

Could you try to uncheck Mencoder option "Switch to tsMuxer when H264 video is PS3 compatible..."

For you information:
High@L4.1 is the AVC/h264 format profile of the video in the mkv container.

This High@L4.1 is only supported by player with following profile (for example your PS3)
AVC_TS_HD_60_AC3
AVC_TS_HD_60_AC3_T
AVC_TS_HD_60_AC3_ISO

AVC_TS_HD_50_AC3
AVC_TS_HD_50_AC3_T
AVC_TS_HD_50_AC3_ISO

AVC_TS_HD_24_AC3
AVC_TS_HD_24_AC3_T
AVC_TS_HD_24_AC3_ISO


But following profile is limited to High@4.0 profile (probably your Bravia TV)
AVC_TS_HD_EU 
AVC_TS_HD_EU_T
AVC_TS_HD_EU_ISO


To know profile supported by your Bravia device Z5800 you have to check the GetProtocolInfo sink on DLNA communication.

Install Intel UPnP tools
run Device Spy
It should list all your UPnP device and among them yout device (eg TV, console, etc)
Expand the device's tree and find service: urn:upnp-org:serviceId:ConnectionManager:1
Expand that and double click on GetProtocolInfo(...).
Click on Invoke and attach a file the result in field Sink.

For your information, see DLNA certification of your Bravia Z5800, must be completed with your GetProtocolInfo sink.
