fwiw, it does the freeze-unfreeze after pausing for as little as 3 seconds. Actually, its just annoying is all. (installed WD 320 Gig drive, 'green' I think)

When to press 0? When? While watching movie? This does not work for me.

I plugged in a usb keyboard for entering WPA (?) security code, worked fine, are there other 'keyboard' functions available?

They (dune), have only the online instructions, which fall short for me. Tech support is, "if you cant say anything good, dont say anything at all"

Hi all. I just picked up a Base 3D and am liking it so far but I'm having an issue with MKV file's audio dropping out for a second or so while playing off an internal HD connected by HDMI to the TV (no receiver). It doesn't happen a lot, like once an hour of playback, but it's annoying. I've gleaned that some firmware is better than others and I'm running FW 140223_0132_b6.

Edit: Audio in the MKV is AC3/EAC3

Is there consensus on the "best" firmware to have installed?

I've upgraded from a Popcorn Hour A110 and never had that kind of issue.

Also, is it normal for the blue power indicator light on the left to blink and turn off during playback?

Hi

I have few questions.

1) Can someone help me to with sleep timer function? How can I activate it? How it work? My 303D never sleep automatically. I have latest beta version, but same problem wit latest final version of firmware.

2) Can I move to next/previous file in directory? I know, that this is possible, If i press play and create playlist, but it is slow. My previous old Xtreamer Pro have this function.

3) Can I open list of latest opened movies after power on?

4) Is possible to set Dune to stay on latest played movie in directory? Now, if I press play (and generate playlist) and watch 10 movies (parts of series) and press stop, cursor is on first file, so I don't know, where I stop watching.

Thanks.

Hello,

I have a question about subtitles

I have problems with changing the size of rips made with MakeMKV. The size does not change as it does with .srt files.

I really wish that there was a way so that all subtitles could be presented similar, in size and location.

Anyone know a tip on how to fix that?

Can anyone comment on 1080i playback? I have a few movies that have been encoded in 1080i AVC that are impossible to watch with XBMC or Mediabrowser. I can provide test files.

Looky here!

1080i BBC Planet Earth bluray's seemed to work fine for me on my older dune (H1).

About $40.00. For me the real time scanning and jukebox update is worth it. I emailed them through the contact info on their website and got a fast respone along with a PayPal link.

Thanks. I may look into it. I am deciding if I want to stick with Dunes or go back to HTPC.

FWIW, I'm going back to dunes from my htpc. The eye candy on the htpc is nice, but I just keep running into one stupid playback issue after another.

I'll give you that. Playback is pretty much flawless on the Dunes. But networking on the Dunes, especially with Windows 7, can be a tad difficult. Easy to set up but security updates sometimes change the permissions and registry to disable proper networking. I have even gone as far as NOT updating W7 to prevent those security updates from screwing up my registry.

I stopped using windows for file services a long time ago for that very reason.
