Sony Bravia 46KDL-W905A and problem to play videos.

I hope this is a correct place for this topic. The topic is related to play videos on hardware player.

I have a TV Sony Bravia 46KDL-W905A. According to its manual, it is supposed to play a video + audio encoded by XviDs, H.264, in containers such as MP4, MkV, and AVI including a couple of audio formats. The files can be provided by removable media such as USB stick or USB HDD. Some technical information are here:


I found out the TV has problem to play videos encoded by x264 and muxed into MKV container. I still don't know whether it is a container or a codec itself. The symptom is a video starts normally but after random time it stops and TV reports that video cannot be played. The location when it occurs is the same per each video meaning when I play video again it stops at the same location. It is different for different files. What I could do so far was to created some short videos and encoded them using variation of different configurations. I ended up creating 18 1 min videos with settings below:

6 videos: Constant Quality set to 16, combinations of Tuning (None, Film), and Target (Default, AVCHD, Blu-ray)
6 videos: 2pass, 4Mbps, the same combinations of Tuning (None, Film), and Target (Default, AVCHD, Blu-ray)
6 videos: 2pass 2Mbps, the same combinations of Tuning (None, Film), and Target (Default, AVCHD, Blu-ray)

Surprisingly, none of them stopped o_O

Then I tried to set one of h264 profiles that "worked" such as Target set to Blu-ray, Tuning set to None, 1Mbps, 2Mbps and 4Mbps, different audio encoding of AC3 (448Khz, 384 kHz) and all videos stopped again with the same error.

I was wondering why full movies cannot be played while I did not have any problems with 1 min videos. It turns out that these 6 movies where encoded on my computer at work using MeGUI v. 2525. It was intended just for testing. Then, because 1 min movies did not cause problems, I tried to re-encode all of them at home using EXACTLY the same configuration, 1 min long, Tuning, Target etc. and a few of them stopped again!!!! I lost motivation to test them all. It's been very weird and frustrating.

I tried one more test. I encoded a couple of full movies at work and it turns out they all can be played without any problem. To be certain that I work on the EXACTLY same version of MeGUI v.2525 at work and at home, I simply copied the whole MeGUI folder from work computer to mine. I tried to convert a couple of same movies I had already encoded at work that worked and they stopped!!!!! All of the them stops playing at the same location--different from one another movie but the same for an individual video.

It turns out that video converted using my computer are corrupted :/ I am looking for any advice here because I don't know where or what to look for. These are specifications of both computers:

At work (working):
Windows Edition.
	Windows 7 Enterprise. Service Pack 1.
	Processor:		Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-3570 CPU @ 3.40GHz  3.40 Ghz
	Installed memory:	8.00 GB (7.88 GB usable)
	System type:		64-bit Operating System

At home (faulty):
Windows Edition.
	Windows 7 Home Premium
	Processor:		Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 CPU 930 @ 2.80GHz  2.80 Ghz
	Installed memory:	6.00 GB
	System type:		64-bit Operating System
If anybody can see any sense of all this, I will be grateful for any comment or help on that.

PC. One of the differences I can say about is that, at work, the MEGUI is located on C:\ drive, whereas at home it is on D:\ Other than that, I have no idea what could be wrong!
