Hi all

I want to buy tomorrow my new media player. I am upgrading from my current media player basically because of the HD Audio (DTS-HD/MA, TrueHD) and also would like to have some wall for my movies

So, considering my needs:


- No need to attach any HDD, just stream over network (gigabit but this does not make any difference since both players are not GigE)
- Flawlessly play MKV files and some ISOs over network
- No need of more connections than HDMI and USB
- Get the best sound and picture quality

Should I go for the 101 and save 50%? I decided to go for the D1, since after heavy reading I concluded it was very reliable but especially an excellent device in terms of sound quality and image processing

However now I do not see why the 101 could be behind the D1 in terms of sound&picture quality and streaming capabilities. Technically the only advantage of the D1 is the 512mb RAM, all the rest is equal or even below the 101

... any advice?

Many thanks

That's simple you need the Dune D1 since Dune TV's does not support ISO's.

Hmmm no

The 101 does support BD ISOs, what they dont support is the full menu feature that D1 can show, but the 101 play perfectly well ISOs, with limited functions like Language, chapter, etc, not full menu, that is called BD-Lite

This is what I found on duneplayer.com

"NO BLUE RAY ISO SUPPORT OR BLUE RAY MENU SUPPORT"

But if it does play the ISO, that's great. I was thinking about buying another dune, but now that the prices went up, I might buy one of the TV's series for the bedroom.

Yes, in theory the 101 does not support DTS-HD nor BD ISOs, but they do (so far and not without issues, hopefully to be fixed via firmware)

Which Dune player do you have?

I've got the Dune D1, which cost me about $270 shipped last week. Now, the D1 cost $329, and that doesn't include shipping
