I have purchased Panasonic UHD Bluray player DP UB 424 from Germany. It is connected to DENON AVR X2200 Dolby ATMOS receiver and Benq 4K Projector.
While playing .MKV 4k files like "some name 2160p.BluRay.REMUX.HEVC.DTS-HD.MA.TrueHD.7.1.Atmos-FGT.mkv" through 3.0 USB , video plays but audio file is not supported. There is no audio from speakers.

But when file like " some name 2160p 4K UltraHD BluRay REMUX HEVC DTS-HD MA 5.1.mkv is played through USB3.0 both Video and Audio is playable. This is possible only when PCM is selected in Digital Audio Output

In MKV file audio playable is AAC, PCM, Vorbis, FLAC as per the specifications.

Can anyone advise what is the problem and what should be done to player settings so as to play Dolby ATMOS files from USB device.

I guess that is issue with Panasonic, may be it doesn't support DTS HD MA using USB, I had the issue with BDP220 long back.
Oppo supports and I have moved to Oppo for some other reason.
You can change the settings to PCM instead of bitstream then it will work , now the issue is decoding done by Panasonic and not
by your AVR.

Dear Renjith,

With PCM on, player plays audio of DTS-HD MA 5.1 but not DTS-HD.MA.TrueHD.7.1.Atmos . I dont understand the reason.
Is there any Firmware update for the same

I am attaching Specifications of player.

Kindly advise

Regards

Amit,

You can update to the latest firmware and check, if it is still not working it may be the way USB is implemented or issue with the content.
Genrally player just shows DTS-HD and DTS-HD.MA.TrueHD and never say 7.1 or 5.1
How do you know it is DTS-HD MA 5.1 and DTS-HD.MA.TrueHD.7.1.Atmos?

Check with Panasonic support, I guess the flagship model UDP900 will support.

Thanks

This seems to be a new challenge in the players which are available today......here is a workaround ......

download "tsmuxer" application and convert the mkv file to m2ts everything seems to work after that.....

True HD play back will not be supported by Panasonic and Sony players in .mkv format, for the reason well-known to the manufacturer's

So you have to download different format or convert your file.
