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.

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:

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
