Default Panoramas on HDTV

Hey guys...

None of my panoramic shots will display on my HDTV...either directly from the camera or uploading on a USB key wich I connected to the TV, nothing works !

Is there any way I can make them show on screen ?

And what's the reason they're not displaying ? The format is JPEG, just like my other pics...

How did I guess? I was reading somewhere yesterday about this problem and as i recall it was something to do with the jpg header. can't find the page now tho. when i get a jpg that some app won't open, i have found that reading it with irfanview and saving it to another directory has always corrected whatever was wrong. as a first step, i'd suggest doing that. i'll keep looking for this info cause i'm interested too.

while you're piddling around with this, try resizing them to less than 1000 wide. that's just a number i made up. just to see if perhaps the issue is size related (file size or number of pixels).

here's a clip from another sony blog. might be a clue. too tech for me. i'm not editting headers.
2. Another note in the manual says that picture files edited on a computer may not display. I actually did have a problem there, because I touch up all my photos with Photoshop Elements then save them as JPGs. Some of those photos did not display. Sony tech support was of no help with this, but I did figure out a solution. So if you get this frame and plan on using Elements, here’s an important note.
When I do a “Save As…” in Elements 6 and select JPEG, a window comes up called JPEG options. This window has a radio button called Format Options. I had the radio button selected for “Progressive.” Apparently, this does not save a file that conforms to Baseline JPEG 4:4:4, 4:2:2, or 4:2:0 format–which this frame requires, so photos saved this way did not display. So I tried saving again, this time selecting the JPEG Format radio button for “Baseline (Standard).” This worked. So make sure you pick that radio button option when saving JPEGs from Elements. So far, taking that approach, I have about 400 jpg photos on the frame, and they all display fine.

i bet that's it:
Select Baseline ("Standard") to use a format recognized by most Web browsers, Baseline Optimized for optimized color and a slightly smaller file size, Progressive to display a series of increasingly detailed scans (you specify how many) as the image downloads. Baseline Optimized and Progressive JPEG images are not supported by all Web browsers.

Wait, what do web browsers have to do with an HDTV ?


Damn, 'cause I always save my .jpegs Baseline Optimized !

So changing my Panoramas to B. Standard should make them display on my TV ? I'll sure give it a try...

Thanks for your time Frank !
