Well I care about video quality too. But I tend to ignore the video enhancements that the likes of Dune, Zappiti, Himedia and others push. None of them seem to add any real world improvement and it...

Is there anyone who actually bought the Zappiti because it had Magic Pixel?

I mean who cares.

There is more about this player than that, not least of which it works as promised.

Falco533

The skip back and forth is set at one minute and not programmable as you say. I'd prefer something less too but there you go.

You absolutely do not have to use the cloud. You can setup...

Out of interest what major area does Zappiti need to work on? Pretty functional and working well for me now. I just wish the info button and initial handshake were better. But that's minor.

Not to me in real world content. Both the Solo and Zappiti are capable of stunnning PQ but the latter is the more capable and polished player, on the proviso you don't need full BD menu support.

As described above the SMB file sharing seems to be just for file manipulation, not playback capability on a non-Zappiti second device. When I hit play on my PC nothing happens, but I can delete,...

Looks like I was wrong and there is a way of doing this. I just got an email back from Zappiti so will try tonight. If it works there is no need to attach the device to the Oppo.

The point of doing it is that I could attach my drives to the Zappiti and have access from both Zappiti and Oppo. As it stands my drives have to stay on PC which has to be on. I'd rather not have the...
