That's great! It means that I won't need to buy a networking machine like a Popcorn Hour or TVix to network my files.
How do you set things like subtitles and all that?
Playing back individual files (or bunch in a dir), yes, it seems to work very well, except the wierd caveat of no fast-fwd/rewind (must be a bug since the manual says it's supposed to work.)Note this is NOT ISO or VOB rips (eg w/ menus/disk navigation)
, but raw MPEG files (I haven't tried MKV/DIVX but those are supposed to be supported as well.) I don't know if MKV or other file formats support some chapter/other navigation internally.
So far it's worked pretty well, I played back around 180+ files (let it play thru renamed .m2ts AVCHD clips from a panasonic camcorder), I got one network/visual glitch (buffer?), but did hit several cases where it seemed to stall, and then hang, and then the BD390 rebooted
. Not sure if it was network or file compat issue. But, that was after playing like 50-100 files..
I haven't yet gotten time/space to try playing back the same content as a joined, big/long MP4 file instead of the raw avchd clip files.
If you have subtitle files w/ matching names in the same dir, it's supposed to support that, but I don't happen to have any to test. It's mentioned in the manual, you can download PDF from the Support tab on the product website ( http://www.lge.com/us/tv-audio-video...ayer-BD390.jsp
