Has anybody seen this?

http://dune-hd.com/hd_players/curren...hd-tv-301.html

This looks like a very cool little media player. Does anybody have one of these or have any experience with this? It says ISO on it and the tech specs say it plays DVD-ISO files.

X-Box Live name: OGgamer1974

If you want to be friends on through xbox network, just send me a request through X-Box Live and mention AVS in the request.

Cheers

^ I don't have personal experience with this player, but do know that it does not support blu-ray ISO, and does not support HD Audio (DTS-MA, TrueHD).

it does support BR ISO but only Lite menus. HD audio is a bit problematic right now, but there's an unofficial patch which seems to solve the problem for some. An official firmware is currently in production to solve this definitively (at least this is what Dune confirmed).

skip this player and purchase a product from the Dune Smart series instead.

Any specific reason why to get smart instead of the TV version? Well outside of HD Audio support which seems like it is getting fixed...

The TV version is ~$100 less????

Does the TV not support jukeboxes or something?

I don't see specific mention of bitstreaming of HD audio... does this just convert to PCM then?

Smart range handles full BD menus as well as all HD audio without any problem. Then you can easily check the differences smart by smart (with hot swappable HDD, with BD drive, with HDD enclosure, mix of all this...)

outside of that, there's no big difference between 301 and a smart.

301 = cheap and works well with some flaws (for now at least), Smart = close to perfect. Then it's up to you to decide which one you want and if you think that your peace of mind cost the extra 100$

Hello! Some file formats can not supported. You can convert your files to mkv by one of free applications. http://www.matroska.org/downloads/windows.html
I would have bought another player if I knew that because on specifications product it is wrtitten :
Video file formats: MKV, MPEG-TS, MPEG-PS, M2TS, VOB, AVI, MOV, MP4, QT, ASF, WMV, BDMV, DVD-ISO, VIDEO_TS
And Sony is a M2ts file , so why theses lies ?????

file can be a m2ts, but it's certainly a AVCHD codec which is used. And it seems that dunes 101/301 are not playing AVCHD. So if you want to play your files, you will need to convert it to something the dune can read. Check here for example, but there are various possibilities to do so : http://www.pavtube.com/sony-cx360v-avchd-to-dune-hd-player-converter-how-to-play-avchd-video-on-dune-hd-player.html

PS : changing it into a mkv won't do anything as you will just change the container...
