I'm looking for a media player that can do the following. Please let me know if this mythical device exists!

- Plays BD ISOs with forced subtitles (forced subtitles are when a foreign language is spoken, subtitles will show up in your language (i.e. the Navi speaking in Avitar would show English)
- Plays Ripped DVDs
- Supports external 3tb USB Hard Drive
- Shows Movie/TV Show Covers in some sort of thumbnail browsable mode.

Nice To Have

- Jukebox Functionality
- Can copy files to it over network at reasonable speed
- Plays Java 2.0 Menus (is this something I should care about?)
- USB 3

What I've Tried:

- I've tried the Micca EP600 G2 which I liked except for it not supporting Jukebox & forced subtitles.
- I bought an AIOS HD because I read that it supports forced subtitles, but it doesn't seem like that works properly frown.gif

It seems like these requirements would be pretty basic for everyone, but maybe I just don't understand the "proper" way to build a media collection?

You are looking at the cheap machines... get yourself a Dune Smart series player.

Popcorn House is another one you may try. Some media player can do certain things better than other media players. You pretty much have to compromised and decide what you can live without. I own both a Dune D1 and PCH-A210. They are both great. However, Dune sometimes doesn't recognize force subs. So, I will have to turn them on. The same goes for the PCH-A210. I believe this is related to the way I ripped the movies. It really doesn't bother me though. They both play everything I've got without issues. Besides I don't have that many movies that need forced subs.
