Did you try Username : NMT Password:1234

You could also try using FileZilla to transfer your files

What kind of subs? pgs? srt? are they a forced sub track or the default one? It's important to specify. The issue is when subs are turned off, forced pgs subs in mkv, m2ts, and iso files don't appear like they should.

Bitrate and codec information would be helpful, I should post these as well which I will later today. Right now all the files I've tested have been either 1:1 iso files, the m2ts file from the main movie, or MKV files with the main movie, the default audio tracks, and the english sub tracks. No remuxing has been done to compress and save space. All the files I've seen posted here are as much as the third the size and bitrate of the originals. For example, here's an MKV of "The Avengers" should look like;

So the main movie for Rango is split into several files which makes remuxing super fast. Already found some interesting things. Have to go but will do some more testing later this afternoon and post the results.

Looky here!

Yes you can access the internal storage of the A-400 over the network. I was using a Win8 PC to accesss mine.

Bitrate and codec information would be helpful, I should post these as well which I will later today. Right now all the files I've tested have been either 1:1 iso files, the m2ts file from the main movie, or MKV files with the main movie, the default audio tracks, and the english sub tracks. No remuxing has been done to compress and save space. All the files I've seen posted here are as much as the third the size and bitrate of the originals. For example, here's an MKV of "The Avengers" should look like;
................

I played around 30 minutes of my Avengers BD ISO last night, the big battle during the last part of the movie. It played the full BD ISO fine.

I had tried the Avengers 3D BD ISO in 2D and it seemed to play that ok, but I only tried a couple of minutes. My C200 and my Boxee Boxes can't play the 3D BD ISO in 2D mode without issues.

This is how it works, Is the usb drive formated NTFS? or did the popcorn hour format it. If its NTFS you need to use an sd card or usb stick or internal drive, I suggest unplugging the usb drive so you dont mix it up, Once plugged in go under setup then maintenance you will see an option the says install NMT apps click that, let it format your usb/sd/internal whatever you picked and it will install apps, When its done plug in your usb drive and reboot. After that you can access the usb from a PC by using ftp using the ip address of the pch or by using samba it will display in your windows network,

In your sample you posted None of the tracks are tagged as forced. For a forced track to work from MKV it has to specifically contain the forced track flag. Think that was just your bit rate example, MKV forced should work for sure. as for single m2ts if you use clownbd make sure forced subtitle box is ticked at all times. If you set clownbd to to recognize forced it creates a new subtitle track while keeping the old and does not work if my memory serves me. As for ISO That one I dont know I dont run ISO files

After that you can access the usb from a PC by using ftp using the ip address of the pch or by using samba it will display in your windows network,

My HDD is formated in win7 NTFS so i guess it wont work then..

It will still work you just need to use an SD card, or USB stock to install NMT apps to the sdcard or usb stick. Think of it like a PC, the sd card or usb stick will be the OS drive, and the usb drive is just a plain usb drive. You have to install the OS to one of the drives since your USB is NTFS and full of information we dont want to use that drive so you need another option, a 4+gb usb stick or 4+gb sd card will work fine. once you install the apps "os" to the usb/card you can access the ntfs usb over the network then.

Correct, that was to show that people posting remuxed and compressed mkvs that run at a third the bitrate of the original doesn't help anyone. When I get home later I'll post what I've found by messing around with my rango test file. What i saw this morning was interesting. I just ran out of time

Makemkv doesn't mark any forced sub tracks with the forced flag, so i fix that manually. Avatar and district 9 are good examples where this needs to be done.

Any m2ts files I've tested have been copied straight off the bluray. No remuxing with clownbd, and the ISOs i have are 1:1 copies, no remuxing there either. Forced subs do not work in either.

Looky here!

makemkv has some issues and not fault of the player, You can read about it in this thread http://www.makemkv.com/forum2/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=4969&start=60 each movie has a different work around it seems, But has you noticed using mkvmerge to manually set force flag for the track works,

As for your m2ts file that is correct behavior i think, m2ts by default has no header information saying subtitles need to be forced if they are present, again correct me if im wrong, But if you want them to be you have to use clowndb to rip out the single m2ts and it will add the header information for the forced subtitle track, again correct me if im wrong but this is my understanding of the m2ts file. As for the 1:1 iso file I think it will depend on the movie, There is 3+ different ways for a bluray to select a forced track and one of them is when you pop in a disc and choose a language right when it starts is what flags the forced track, But since the A400 only has bdlite that menu is now skipped so 1:1 might take some work to get forced tracks working and again might not always work. then to top it off there is multiple ways to do a forced subtitle track it can be its own track it can be a inside the language track with the lines flagged as forced.

Movies with forced subs thread:

http://www.avsforum.com/t/1176923/movies-with-forced-subtitles

Spreadsheet:

https://spreadsheets.google.com/pub?key=t8Xb85eyNFtZ3vaNK8gqkbQ&single=true&gid=0&output=html

I use the Header Editor after I rip my discs to do one of the following:

a) If an English language film has forced subs I figure out what track it is by either the spreadsheet, the thread, or just watching the part of the movie where they appear until I get the right track.
b) for convenience, I set the main sub track on ALL foreign language films to forced.

This let's me completely turn subs off and have the right sub track appear regardless of the movie. Adds to the WAF as well. It works peaches with XBMC, our Boxee, and it worked with the A300.

This is interesting and explains a lot, especially how Bluray players know which sub track to play. I have a friend that used to master DVD's and Blurays for a living, I'm going to follow up with him on this.

Once you have the apps installed on either an SD card or, as I did since i have a class 10SD card that won't work with it yet, use a usb thumbdrive in the side USB port to install them and then go to your PC: and add a network drive. OR, if you're using Win7 simply open up your computer and in the right hand side you'll see the A400: click the 'carrot/arrow' and it'll auto show you the drives connected to your A400.

@dvzzz (and all others):
Quote:
Any of you guys with dedicated Video Processors (or a good ones in your AV Receivers) are doing comparisons between A-400 VXP and their video procs.
I have actively in my setup: a CII (VXP), Radiance XE (VXP), Optoma HD3000 (VXP) and a DVDO VP50Pro. So I definitely know how VXP processing is supposed to look like. All of these are connected to a HDMI matrix, so I can easily switch every source to every processor and even chain them up. When I first posted my review for the A-400 (about 10 days ago, before you guys got yours) I did a cross check with every one of those processors. Eventually I only compared the A-400 to my Dune (Smart), because the Dune on it's own is weaker than any of the VPs above (with an Oppo as a player) and still the A-400 can't even reach the Dune's quality.

I know that for most people 1080p playback, maybe even in 3D, is the only important point, but then again, what do you need a VXP processor for if you don't need any scaling or deinterlacing ? I updated the two recent firmwares, but in terms of PQ nothing changed. I returned the A-400 for a refund this week.

What I wrote earlier stands: the Dune Smart has better PQ whenever scaling is involved. The VXP's (video-only) deinterlacing for 480i and 1080i isn't bad, but paired with the blurry scaling, it's not worth using it. A good DVD rip played on the Oppo and processed by one of the "real" VXP machines looks tremendously good, no matter if it's video or film. A good movie DVD image played on a Dune Smart still looks good (while video-based DVDs look very sub-par), but any SD material played on the A-400 looks just mediocre, much like played on a $50 DVD player from 7 years back.

If they can work out the issues and deliver real unleashed VXP video quality on the A-400, I'll go straight out and rebuy one....

One of the first things I did was turn off any VXP processing. It's extremely rare that I will watch a DVD ISO. Most of what I watch is from BD ISOs and is in 1080P24. Plus I'm using a DVDO DUO and a Darbee Darblet in the mix.

My stuttering always started as soon as the main "R A N G O" title turns toward the viewer and the owls start singing the theme. I remuxed the orginal m2ts so I had the original and a copy that defaulted the the DD track instead of the DTS-HD I then remuxed both files into MKV files without changing any of the defaults.

01012.m2ts - Video plays fine, audio starts dropping then normalizing as soon as the owls sing.
01012-ac3.m2ts - Video and audio play fine.
01012.mkv - Video plays fine, audio starts dropping then normalizing as soon as the owls sing.
01012-ac3.mkv - Video and audio play fine.

Later I'll remux Batman Begins so the TRUE-HD track is the default track, the DD track is #1 which the A400 defaults to. I'll test The Avengers for both forced pgs subs and audio.

I'll post the relevant info from Mediainfo later.

MKV with pgs forced subs - fixed this one. Changed the settings I had for the sub track so Default, Track Enabled, and Forced display were all set to YES. The forced subs show with the proper font and position. Didn't try Avatar yet.

So I found out it's pretty simple how it works with bluray players. There's a discrete sub track that contains the forced subs. It defaults to ON based on the default language set in the player. The flag to show the sub is in the timecode of the sub stream. Java and the BR menu have nothing to do with this, it's all based on the player defaults.

That is one way. Movies like kill bill do it that way. a lot of the Regions that cross in EU do it by the BDJ prompt in the front of the movie trying to think of the most recent I saw it on And not all tracks are the same, if its one track its easy, but some movies the full english track is there but bits are marked as forced .trying to think of the movie titles to see if you have any so you can see it, drawing a blank at work right now though

The Star Wars Blu-rays Except for Episode V have the forced subs mixed inside the English track and just flagged its not a full discreet track of its own.

How do you think this docking station by Startech would work connected to the Popcorn Hour's slave 3.0 or esata port. Perhaps two coud be connected, one to the 3.0 slave and one to the esata port.

The slave port cannot be used how you are thinking. it can only be connected to a PC and the A400 functions as a mass storage device it does not flow backwards. you could use the USB 2.0 port fine with it. the esata port is a maybe. I dont know if it supports port multipliers which is what that enclosure is doing. I would look around to see if someone else has one to confirm it would work.

That would make sense for regions with as many languages as the EU.

So the computer can access files from the Popcorn Hour but the Pocorn Hour cannot obtain files from the computer over the slave port. I never understood the consept of slave as it relates to computer access.

Can some people test my DVDfab remux:

I've remuxed Ice Age 4 3D ISO of the first 3 chapters (9 minutes) with two audio tracks and two subtitle tracks. Its a 2.98Gb ISO, broken into 6 500MB rar parts.

Part 1:
http://www.4shared.com/rar/UtVAGbLQ/ICE_AGE_CONTINENTAL_DRIFT_3Dis.html

Part 2:
http://www.4shared.com/rar/w5DCgtfe/ICE_AGE_CONTINENTAL_DRIFT_3Dis.html

Part 3: http://www.4shared.com/rar/2-GzUwe-/ICE_AGE_CONTINENTAL_DRIFT_3Dis.html

Part 4:
http://www.4shared.com/rar/tbH865mX/ICE_AGE_CONTINENTAL_DRIFT_3Dis.html

Part 5:
http://www.4shared.com/rar/ZHL8SSSD/ICE_AGE_CONTINENTAL_DRIFT_3Dis.html

Part 6:
http://www.4shared.com/rar/g4FxOrJS/ICE_AGE_CONTINENTAL_DRIFT_3Dis.html

Let me know if it plays off a local HDD and how it plays via Samba. I already know it will probably have issues via NFS.
It plays fine on my A-300 in 2D though.
