I tried DMM last night with my Dune Base 3.0, and didn't have a good experience at all. I eventually (sort of) got it to work.
1) Am I correct in saying that the point of DMM is to improve music library navigation? Because once I play a song, I'm presented with the normal vanilla Dune interface showing the track name on the screen (and nothing else). I would love if the Dune would show me how long the song has been playing, cover art, etc....DURING playback. That may not be possible, and I realize it may be outside of the scope of what DMM is trying to provide.
2) The DMM windows app is quite buggy. I would change settings in my menu definition, and I would do an export, and get a menu that was half of my old settings, and half of my new (as if things were being cached). I would delete the entire DMM app installation and re-install it (unzip it), and old settings would still be lingering.
3) For me (running Hanewin NFS server on Windows 8), when connecting to an NFS share, I have to put a ":" after the share name. The DMM app doesn't do this by default, and it took me FOREVER to track this down. Until I figured this out, I couldn't get any music to play at all.
What I'm really looking for is a better experience on the Dune during music PLAYBACK. I actually don't mind the default Dune navigation (scroll through a bunch of folders, pick a song). Are there any recommendations out there for this?
