What HD Movie formats does DSM-520 support?
« on: November 29, 2007, 02:46:04 AM »

Hello!
As the subject say, i am wondering what HD formats the media player supports?
I have tried both .ts and .mkv but it does not detect them.

I've played Microsoft's WMV HD samples quite well on my DSM-520:

They look great! ... even on my lowly Samsung 27" boring TV.

Note that H.264, aka MPEG-4 Part 10 or AVC (Advanced Video Coding) is NOT supported.  I believe it will be with the DSM 750 coming out in the future.

I don't know, but I want it now  ;D  It looks like it will work with Vista and Windows Media Center - I wouldn't be surprised that it comes out after the service pack for Vista is released.
