First of all it is Albert Einstein, second he was German and I included Germans.

The Web was invented by English scientist Tim Berners-Lee in 1989
Personal computer or PC, an american invention.

You would not even be able to have this conversation without American ingenuity.

WOW.

Thank you for re-enforcing the stereotype that Americans have around the world, one of being bullies and jackasses. Not only does your argument not have a leg to stand on, but the mere fact that you are even making it is just shocking. Apologies to the Ellines.

As someone previously mentioned, since the product is sold in Greece it should support Greek subtitles. Just like any of those other electronics you have in your house made by Japanese, Chinese etc companies support the American market...you know, like English subtitles or menus or buttons.

Top Folder - Family Guy
Family Guy.jpg
-> Season 1
-> Season 2
-> Season 3
-> Season 4

If these sub folders weren't there , then the cover art would show up.

Hi!
Can't confirm this. Works on my box... However I named the file folder.jpg

Greets!

Legacy

The Greek authorities intend to create a museum honoring Karatheodoris in Komotini, a major town of the northeastern Greek region where his family came from.

On December 19, 2005, Israeli officials along with Israel's ambassador to Athens, Ram Aviram, presented the Greek foreign ministry with copies of 10 letters between Albert Einstein and Constantin Carathéodory [Karatheodoris] that suggest that the work of Carathéodory helped shape some of Albert Einstein's theories. The letters were part of a long correspondence which lasted from 1916 to 1930. Aviram said that according to experts at the National Archives of Israel custodians of the original letters the mathematical side of Einstein's physics theory was partly substantiated through the work of Carathéodory.

To WD guys:

Tested with hard disk WD My Passport 500 GB brand new: the drive seems to spin down (no vibrations touching it) when the WDTV is turned to OFF but the light on the drive remains lit.
Thanks for your helful collaboration in sorting the issues.

Unfortunately there don't appear to be any regular moderators. There is already a thread for feature requests as well as a "Top 5 Request" thread.

http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=1100499

http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=1137712

This thread should be solely for bugs/issues that people are finding with the latest beta firmware.

actually that is the problem, if you DON"T select "no", it defaults to "yes" on its own, just because someone has subtitles does not mean they would like to use them.

i do understand this is just a issue with mkvmerge but most people would never know this.

so if it actually used the flags in a mkv alot of people would have subs on that did not want them.

just please leave it so that no matter what we can turn off ALL of the subtitles.



and to the wd guys, this is a awsome player, all my files play perfectly and my hd idles down, it actually always has (1tb wd my book home edition).

GREAT JOB!!!

I already got 96 KHz using Toslink with other players.
I even verified it last Wednesday using another media player (Storex).
What I can't confirm is if I got 24 bits or not, as my receiver does not give me that information.

my prodigy HD2 soundcard outputs 96 khz samplerate on the optical output since the surround receiver tells that is locked to 96 khz...but this is not the point here.
do you think that only optical transmitter is "hardware" limited and if i would hack into the box and take digital coax signal before it enters optical transmitter would solve the problem? I think it is software sampled to 48 khz,and someone could try a normal audio-cd file 16 bit/44.1khz and see if it is upsampled to 48 khz on the optical output ( just like windows k-mixer does) - if normal 44.1khz sample comes out at 48 khz then it is software upsampled and can be corrected from the firmware!
If not,then you make a good point and it can be modified for a coax out or take the I2S signals directly before the DAC chip and use them on an external DAC to output HD Audio of 24/96
I'm curious if someone with HDMI input capable surround receiver tried these 24/96 WAV and FLAC files to see if it is sending 24/96 audio through HDMI OUT and the receiver is locking on 96 khz ;
Maybe someone could try,thanks!

Subtitles are very important for all non English/French/German people. We don't understand (well you know) what is being said and we don't dub the audio track (unlike the French). I find good subtitles even more important than the imagequality. Not having subs = not understanding or watching the video, even if it's the best imagequality. So I can understand our Greek friends.

I promised to show some photos to show what's wrong with the subtitles.
thumbnails link to bigger photo
The spacing between the characters is weird, doesn't look good.
This is even worse on the normal border setting:

thick border setting:


The quality of the subs could be better. Here is a DVD sub example:

I think this is different with each DVD player, but I at least the spacing between the letters is OK.

On the other hand, we have really good subs when viewing a normal tv station:

As you can see, there isn't really a border around the text, there is a kind of shaddow

This makes the subs appear to be top quality!
Photo's are from a HD Ready TV (1366x768 or something)

If you would ever stop fixing these things in Firmware: please make it opensource!
I can understand the lifetime of a device cannot be eternal, but as long as it's selling, you should create firmware updates. But please don't abbandon it like other vendors! I would even like to 5$-10$ pay for a firmware, as long as there is one WD guy working on it!

Oh and to the kids: Tim Berners Lee is from England, and came up with the web with the help of his manager Robert Cailliau (from Belgium) while working at the CERN in switzerland (European Nuclear Agency). Just to clear some things up

please be aware of these other facts that i just found on some other forum about a similar experience

"The downsampling takes place when HDMI audio is enabled and then you cannot expect higher sampling rate than 48kHz at SPDIF for regular audio. However, when HDMI audio output is disabled, audio via SPDIF is transmitted with correct bitrate.

48kHz seems to be hardware upper audio limitation when HDMI is in use. "


Please also try this option and let me know...thank you very much!

I'd like to make a remark here: if something is sold in a certain country doesn't mean it was meant to be sold in the said country...if someone imports and sells WDTVs who is not a local authorized WD representative/importer, it is not WD's bussiness...only a WD rep can request full support for his country (language, subtitles) to be included in the product...it seems initially that WDTV was primarily meant for US and certain other countries, but not ALL...that could mean that, say, arab countries don't have a WD rep or the rep haven't initialized a request to include arabic...I don't think WD should or even could include every living langugage and writing without counseling with local reps to conclude if it is even worth pushing a product

@erazer: DVD subtitles are pre-made not rendered on-the-fly, they might have been corrected manually where needed...the same goes for TV subtitles if they are "burnt" into the picture or are streamed as DVB subtitles...

Top Folder - Family Guy
Family Guy.jpg
-> Season 1
-> Season 2
-> Season 3
-> Season 4

If these sub folders weren't there , then the cover art would show up.

Yeah you have to name the .jpeg you want for the Family guy top folder "folder.jpeg" not "Family Guy.jpeg" hope that helps.

Its SOLD in greece, idiot...

And what the greeks did?.....HMMMMM possible bring some sort of civilization?

Dont reply to this annoying "thing"..I chose the way not to trouble myself people(?) like him..Its like you speak to an ape and you wait to get a reasonable answer..Let the other decide if he is right or wrong..I hope he will never be in need to make a laser correction on his eyes because greeks invented it..
EDIT:about the subs the problem is not just one or two letters..The subs remain on screen for about just a few milliseconds and of course are unreadable

Let's not feed the trolls here. Obviously we need Arabic + Greek subtitle support.

do you think that only optical transmitter is "hardware" limited and if i would hack into the box and take digital coax signal before it enters optical transmitter would solve the problem? I think it is software sampled to 48 khz,and someone could try a normal audio-cd file 16 bit/44.1khz and see if it is upsampled to 48 khz on the optical output ( just like windows k-mixer does) - if normal 44.1khz sample comes out at 48 khz then it is software upsampled and can be corrected from the firmware!
If not,then you make a good point and it can be modified for a coax out or take the I2S signals directly before the DAC chip and use them on an external DAC to output HD Audio of 24/96
I'm curious if someone with HDMI input capable surround receiver tried these 24/96 WAV and FLAC files to see if it is sending 24/96 audio through HDMI OUT and the receiver is locking on 96 khz ;
Maybe someone could try,thanks!

Just did what testing I could do. My flac files showed only a 44.1khz rate using WD media player. When I played them thru the PS3 using the original CD or using PS3 server it showed 48 Khz.

48kHz seems to be hardware upper audio limitation when HDMI is in use. "


Please also try this option and let me know...thank you very much!

You seem to be right about the 48kHz being upper limit thru this HDMI. Is that because it is not the new 1.3 HDMI?

From Wikipedia fwiw:

"S/PDIF is used to transmit digital signals of a number of formats, the most common being the 48 kHz sample rate format used in DAT, and the 44.1 kHz format used in CD audio. In order to support both systems, as well as others that might be needed, the format has no defined data rate. Instead the data is sent using Biphase mark code, which has either one or two transitions for every bit, allowing the original word clock to be extracted from the signal itself.

S/PDIF is meant to be used for transmitting 20 bit audio data streams plus other related information. To transmit sources with less than 20 bits of sample accuracy, the superfluous bits will be set to zero. S/PDIF can also transport 24 bit samples by way of four extra bits, but not all equipment supports this, and might ignore these extra bits.

Since the low-level protocol is almost the same, it is described in the AES/EBU article. The only difference is in the "Channel status bit".
