This looks like a Syabas based machine due to the 4 colored buttons on the remote. I think Mvix USA is just rebadging the machine to theirs.

Here are links to the quick fact sheet from the MvixUSA store
http://www.mvixusa.com/download/manu...a%20Player.pdf
Format support PDF
http://www.mvixusa.com/download/manu...%20Support.pdf
Widgets pack
http://www.mvixusa.com/download/firm...ets%20Pack.zip
firmware 1.1
http://www.mvixusa.com/download/firm...mware_v1.1.zip
User Manual
http://www.mvixusa.com/download/manu...r%20Manual.pdf

Looks like this device will be able to play ISO with DVD Menu....
Directly from the Manual
If your ISO file contains the “Menu” structure of DVD, then the playback will start with that
DVD Menu and allow you to select Chapters, Scenes, Audio or Language types etc.

The playback of ISO files replicates a standard DVD playback in its entirety.

During playback, you can Fast Forward, Rewind, Pause or Mute your playback as you would
do on a standard DVD playback.

I wouldn't say hate. More confusion as to wheter Mivx USA broke any corporate agreements with Mivx Korea/Unicorn. Will Unicorn take Mvix USA to court and stop either the new product or MVIX USA from selling any Unicorn products.

I actually like the device a lot and would like to buy it. I just hope the legal issue doesn't become a huge mess that hinders the device.

I've had an mvix once before for 1 night, does it passthrough DTS? The one thing I didn't see.

Was checking the Specs and found that it supports external DVD drives...

"External Storage Via USB Host (for external DVD Drives / Portable HDD / USB storage)"

Can I plug an external usb dvd drive (laptop's) and play movies from that? Does it upscale the movie to 1080p?

I've been using the mvix 760HD for a couple years now and love the thing. Been waiting a long time for this new player so I'm pretty disappointed to see the legal talk surrounding it. If the new one is anything like their old models it should be a pretty good little media player. And I like that they are releasing the sourcecode for it too. That's something I wished they would have done for the 760HD.

Yeah, it's at the MVIX store but NOT on the non-store website. There is NO information or link from the main page.

Yeah, don't understand why, this is the only other "non store" link I can find:

http://www.mvixusa.com/ultio/1080p-h...heater-pc.html

Some other blogs out there (like Hot Hardware) are picking up on this device, so they better hope they don't run into legal issues and can get it out.

If this thing performs as advertised and picks up some power users willing to modifiy the source code I believe it would be just what I m looking for. Seems by their statement in the newsletter that they own the rights to Mvix brand name and Unicorn's so called legal memo is not worth the web space it takes up. Looking forward to first reviews of this thing.

Check out these two post I found about the Ultio

I find it somewhat strange that the type of video processing chip is not listed in the specs of this device. I wrote NvixUSA to find out which chip they are using and have yet to receive a reply after several days...

+1 Who are the people buying this player without having any idea what chipset is inside?? I also wrote to MvixUSA several times and they would not answer what chipset was inside. How can that be good?

I did. I don't particularly care what chipset is inside, as long as it actually does what it claims to do. I currently use a modded original Xbox as a media center, and I've been looking for an ideal upgrade (something that can handle h.264) for a while. I bought a WDTV a couple months ago for a friend, but without network support, that didn't quite cut it for me. I found out about the Ultio and the Xtreamer at about the same time, and went with the Ultio for the simple fact that my older LCD TV doesn't have HDMI, and the Xtreamer doesn't have component outputs.

I placed a pre-order for an Ultio last week and they charged my card yesterday, so it should be on its way now. I'll be glad to tear it apart and report on exactly which chip the Ultio is using when it arrives, unless somebody else beats me to it.
