Needed: Sony BDP-Sx500 profile (S4500)

I just bought Sony BDP-S4500 Blu-Ray player (Euro model). And own BDP-S4100 also. (both using latest firmware) They work mostly with BDP-Sx100 profile, but S4500 plays more codecs than S4100, and 4500 must use m2ts-stream instead mpegts.

Here are codecs that are playable with 4500: Part 1: http://kuvapilvi.fi/k/ywsE.jpg and Part2: http://kuvapilvi.fi/k/yws6.jpg
Here are also codecs playable with 4100: Part 1: http://kuvapilvi.fi/k/ywse.jpg Part 2: http://kuvapilvi.fi/k/ywsc.jpg

Difference between 4100 and 4500 is, that the following codecs are added on 4500 (nothing removed)
Video:
-MPEG-1 / MKV
-MPEG-2 / MKV
-MPEG4 / FLV
-VC1 / MKV
-WMV9 / MKV

Audio:
-WMA 10 Pro
-Vorbis
-Monkeys audio

Then there are sidenotes added on 4500:
*7 The player can support WMV9 up to Advance Profile
*10 The player can play AVCHD 3D format

These are only differences I can find.

BDP-S4100 works great with BDP-Sx100 -profile. S4500 almost, but hangs with the mpegts-stream, have to change mpegts to m2ts in the profiles.xml file, when using decoding. .more of it here --> viewtopic.php?f=7&t=22131

So should there be another profile for Sx500-series, you decide.

Re: Needed: Sony BDP-Sx500 profile (S4500)

I Edited the /serviio-1.6.1/config/profles.xml -file and added there BDP-Sx500 -proflile. Seems to work.

Just copypasted Sx100-profile above it and changed some values.

BDP-Sx100 profile transforms AAC, DCA and TRUEHD to --> AC3, as Sx500 profile does not. in Sx500 profile I changed all the mpegts to --> m2ts, since BDP-S4500 does not seem to support mpegts-stream for some reason.

Here is the file:

Re: Needed: Sony BDP-Sx500 profile (S4500)

Still no profile available for Sony BDP-Sx500, and my previous posts workaround does not work anymore with Serviio 1.9

Any ideas what to do? :roll:

EDIT: Downgraded to Serviio 1.6.1, and everything works just fine. But there DEFINITELY should be a profile for Sx500 series added to the next version of Serviio!

Sidenote, version 1.6 does not either work with this modified "profiles.xml" -file, only 1.6.1
Here is the official download link for Serviio 1.6.1 --> http://download.serviio.org/releases/se ... nux.tar.gz
And here is the backup --> http://www.paste.fi/file/15049528338800/m

Re: Needed: Sony BDP-Sx500 profile (S4500)

Is there yet this Sony BDP-Sx500 profile added? Since I can not use Sony BDP-Sx100 profile with Sony BDP-S4500 player. It must use m2ts-stream instead mpegts. I also have -S4100 player attached to this system, so I can not edit Sx100-profile, and use that for both.

If it is not added yet, please do so, I can not update my Serviio when this profile is missing, and can not be added my self.

Re: Needed: Sony BDP-Sx500 profile (S4500)

To create a profile, someone needs to have that model available. I don't have one, and since the developer hadn't responded he likely doesn't either. I have an S3500 player, and haven't had any problem using the Sx100 profile. If the 4500 doesn't support the mpegts container, that's quite a surprise. I see the Sx100 profile uses the TS container and transcodes to MPEG2 video and AC3 audio. And I'm not following your comment about changing to M2TS, as the only supported containers are asf, mpeg (MPEG2PS), mpegts (MPEG2TS), applehttp (HLS). The Sx100 profile uses mpegts.

Are you aware that Serviio now supports user created profiles in a separate file that doesn't get replaced with a program update? Just create a new profile in a file named user-profiles.xml and store it in the same folder as the other profile file.

I just downloaded the profiles file you posted in an earlier post, and I can't find the change you said you made for the Sx100 profile. What are you changing to get the M2TS container?

Re: Needed: Sony BDP-Sx500 profile (S4500)

Oh, it seems I have audio convert part in the Sx100 profile in this version of profiles.xml-file

S4500 needs m2ts-option to work. I used the AAC-audio convert option in both profiles when editing these and changing players in the house, and only one of them have this option at the time. In this file it is in Sx100 profile, nowdays I have it in the Sx500 profile.

In Sx500 profile I have this at the moment:

<!-- transcode AAC DCA and True-HD surround audio types to ac3 -->
<Video targetContainer="m2ts" targetACodec="ac3" aBitrate="320" >
<Matches container="*" vCodec="h264" aCodec="aac" />
<Matches container="*" vCodec="h264" aCodec="dca" />
<Matches container="*" vCodec="h264" aCodec="truehd" />
</Video>
<Video targetContainer="m2ts" forceInheritance="true">
<Matches container="flv" vCodec="h264" />
</Video>


Oh, I must try this new version that has this option to add own profiles :)

Re: Needed: Sony BDP-Sx500 profile (S4500)

I don't think that will work. M2TS is not a recognized container. Here is what the support page lists:

targetContainer - compulsory; name of container to transcode into; possible values: asf, mpeg (MPEG2PS), mpegts (MPEG2TS), applehttp (HLS)


You should be using mpegts.

"m2ts" is valid, it's just another way to specify "mpegts". Used extensively in some of the standard profiles.
