I have configured a DLNA server with a DUO Core desktop computer (running Windows 7 and 4 gigs RAM).

I have a Panasonic DMP-BDT210 Full HD 3D Blu-ray Disc Playerand  LG 3D 47LW5600 LED TV.

 A friend provided me with a HD movie on a USB stick, which is just ove 7 Gig in size. The movie is in MP4 format.

My DVD player cannot read the US stick - it says unsupported format. Does anyone know why?

Same thing happens when I try to read it as a MP4 file from a Dual Layer DVD (containing the flat MP4 file). Again does anyone know why?

So I loaded the file into my DLNA server. Both my TV and DVD player are DLNA certified, and both devices see the movie on the DLNA server.

However, the picture quality is suberb when playing it through my TV using the DLNA client, but the picutre is horrible (and not even close to being clear) when playing through the DLNA client of the DVD plaer. Does anyone know why? Al HD equipment is connected through a ONKYO receiver which supports 3D high def data and sound. I connected my computer (DLNA server) directly to the receiver and the picutr quality displayed on my TV is also out of this world.

Also, is there a way to get the DLNA server to recognize .MKV file format? Mine does not and I even tried installing the .MKV codec.

Thanks in dvance.
