OK, I don't work for Mvix, but I certainly believe the the Ultio is a good device and has delivered essentially what they advertise which is stream/play most all types of video formats. The Ultio is still quite young and I think Mvix and the hardware manufacturer are working out the bugs for Ultio and the other brands of HTPC that have similar chips.
With that, I have discovered the Mvix released a new Samba update (1.1). Everything else stays the same (bit torrent) but the update of Samba enables Telnet, read/write mount instead of read only, and the editing of the host name (which is what I was after). I have not tested the new Samba yet but it certainly looks promising! A DVD menu operation feature and an improvement in Samba all within two days.http://www.mvixusa.com/support/index...nloaditemid=58
Now, if Mvix will enhance the audio Jukebox of the Ultio I think most owners will be happy. I did tool with it a while myself and it is indeed discouraging that it only plays one song in a folder of songs. Two things I think help explain this: 1) main purpose of Ultio is video - although it is called a media player and audio is a form of media which leads me to 2) if the player was programmed to shuffle and play files, what would be the result when playing video? You would finish one movie and it would shuffle to the next one. But then again, it does slideshows for photos just fine (from one folder).
Mvix had this feature working fine in other products, so it will be just a matter of time to hopefully tweak this feature a little.
