My PBO has served me well for years, minus its one huge downfall... I wasn't lucky enough to find a PBO that had the 1073DD C+ (HD audio enabled) chipset, aka DD+.

I'm looking at the Dune 303d due to its $200 price point and my understanding it accomplishes my wish list:

1) Bit streams DTS-HD Master Audio to my Pioneer 1222 receiver to play.
2) Plays Bluray ISO's
3) Has a movie wall

Here's my current setup / process:

1) Rip bluray disc to PC via AnyDVD
2) Create a "movie only" bluray iso with ClownBD
3) Put bluray iso onto external usb hard drive
4) Use YAMJ on my PC to add bluray iso to video wall / playlist
5) Connect hard drive to PBO and enjoy movie


Does it appear the Dune 303d is a good option? I wont be accessing my media via wireless connection. I do utilize ethernet over powerline via a Trendnet Powerline 200 adapter into a bridge in my entertainment center if that's useful information. Thx for your feedback.

None of the new 3D capable media players support BD ISOs with full menus. Only BD lite FYI. you can use Zappiti, Yadis, MyMovies, 10Muse to create a jukebox.

I don't use ISOs anymore. I re-ripped all my ISOs to M2TS or MKV main movie only even though I've got a Dune D1 that does support full menus.

Thx Gus for the reply. I'm not interested in menus on my BD ISO's. That's why I put them in a movie only format. Push play and get right to the movie. If I remember correctly you had a 303d a while back, no issues with Bit streaming DTS-HD Master Audio to your receiver? Thx

I did have an issue streaming HD sound, but that was fixed once I updated to the B6 beta firmware. Thereafter, I didn't have any issues bitsreaming HD sound.
