Actually I think is has something to do with the SMB version, I did not remember well who upgraded Windows or Dune and when (sorry for the confusion), but please read this post for clarification.
It is for Dune Solo 4K but you may find it useful for older Dunes like HD Max and HD Smart.


Dune HD SOLO 4K Media Player

"Windows 7 runs SMB 2.1 and the Dune Solo 4k is running SMB 4.3.10 after the earlier firmware upgrade which. The idea is that that later SMB version should negotiate to the lowest common protocol while not taking advantage of the later version's specific capabilities, but it can lead to problems such as the stuttering issue you are seeing, which wasn't there before SMB was upgraded on the Dune. I haven't found any evidence that a later SMB version is available for Windows 7."

I upgraded to the new FW.
The free promo premium function, that enables "My collection" is active until 2017-05-31.
Does anyone have any idea if the subscription will be based on an account for all the Dune HD Max and HD Smart that account owns, or it will be by account by product.
I own 2 Dune HD Max, 1 HD Duo, 2 HD Smart H1 and 1 HD Smart B1.
In other words, do I have to pay 6 subscriptions or just 1 subscription for all the 6 Dunes?
Also, any idea of how much the subscription will be per month or per year?
I own also a Dune Solo 4K which does not need subscription but there is a Dune Solo 4k Lite version which need subscription.
Dune Solo 4K Lite is on the market from 1 year ago, but Dune never enforced the subscription, so far, Solo4K Lite is still in the promo period since 1 year ago.
Thanks

After all the complaining over the last couple of years, dune has pulled out a blockbuster and have fixed all the bugs and missing features people wanted.

Upgrade and pretty much bring your old machine right up to date so it does virtually everything that the new models do (obviously not 4K or h.265) including forced subs (at last!!!) and gapless audio playback.

The new My Collection jukebox & Movie streaming plugin will be paid for apps in future but you don't have to use them, it's just a nice bonus.

I had been stuck on the old b6 firmware because I was using ScottyJ's forced subs patch, now it's not needed. Other little upgrades from b6 include the newer motion adaptive+ deinterlacing, the audio info boxes now show the proper tag info instead of shortened generic titles, now it shows whatever you write in the audio track title field.

Awesome update, almost makes me wonder why I updated to Solo 4K

Great work Dune....now let's get the movie & TV jukebox up to a world class standard!
Can you clarify what you mean by gapless audio playback?

The Hodor Theater - Now with Atmos
Projector - Panasonic PT-AE8000U
LCR speakers - JTR Noesis 228 HT (3)
Surr./Back - Klipsch Pro Cinema KPT-8000M (4); Atmos In-ceiling - Niles DS8HD (4)
Subwoofers - Passive JTR Captivator Pro (2) - Powered by Crown XLS 5000.
Receiver - Yamaha Adventage A3050

Definitely there can be a problem with Windows shares access from Dunes. Sometimes it's a time consuming business to get it working. But I can evidence that it's doable. I have two Dune TV-102 (same thing in that regard, imo) and I'd managed to access the default Windows share (Public, which is enough for my needs) in the Dune's network browser for the following OSes:

-Win Vista 32 Ultimate;
-Win 7 32-bit Home;
-Win 8 Pro (32-bit and 64-bit);
-Win 8.1 Pro (32-bit and 64-bit);
-Win 10 Pro 64-bit, current build and the Insider's preview build;
-Win 10 Home 32-bit, current build

I think there are a number of ways to get the access working but what I have done is to change four network-related parameters (using Local Security Policy applet or Regedit), that are related to anonymous access to the share. That's it. Updated my Dune with the new firmware (r11), the access is not broken, all fine.

I think all of us can access the SMB shares on Windows. This is not the problem. The problem is the picture quality is not so good, it is stuttering sometimes.
This is why NFS is better.

When my Windows shares have the right permissions settings the quality is the same on SMB and I get NO stuttering. When Windows updates anything to do with networking, it resets the permissions and I can no longer see the shares. How do I know it resets the settings...cause I can see the registries being changed to default after each update.

I have never heard anyone complain that the picture quality is different on SMB vs NFS.
