The only problem that I see with a media player being used for music, is that you have to have your TV on so you can see what you are doing. This is something my wife and I dislike very much.

How true...

The modern iP*/Android devices should solve the problem of control the audio players without a TV being on. PCH A400 is on the horizon that promises such kind of control out of the box, hopefully Dune will make the same and also improve gapless playback. This will be really what I like and the way to the future.

That being the case, I'm going to take a 2nd look at Yadis. It's definitely looking better now then what I last saw where it was still in version 1 stage.

Does the 10muse ipad app have tv show support? And can the app be used in portrait mode or only landscape?

The Mac version of mymovies doesn't include any export module for dune. It's only a collection management software. Nothing else....

There's currently a beta testing on an app called dunepad on mpcc. The idea is exactly what you said : everything is done from the iPad, even scrapping. No need anymore to turn on the pc to scrap or the tv to navigate. It's still in its early stage,but already functional.

The iPad app does have full TV support.

The app can only be used in landscape mode.

I see the Android is also included! Nice smile.gif

I'm using a Dune HD D1 with Yadis and up until today everything has been working fine.
I recently installed a new HDD and although the sharing permissions/settings are the exact same I can't access it via the Dune.
When I go in through the Network Browser it sees the shared folder but when I try to access it it says "Network resource is not accessible. You might not have access permission"

As I said, the sharing/permissions have been set up exactly the same as the other shared folders. The only difference is that this is a 3TB drive while the others are 2TB.

Any recommendations on what I need to do to access this folder?

Double check the NTFS permissions on the HDD, which is separate from sharing permissions.

I wonder how many millions of hours are wasted every year by people struggling with Windows network sharing.

. . . and how much money Microsoft made with their pay-for-tech-support service to give the exact answer you did.

Windows 7 + PCH-A300 = WORLD WAR III.

Going to back to my question above...

I noticed the Dune only has a 100mbit ethernet jack.

Would streaming Blu-Ray ISOs over a connected Synology NAS (Via the Ethernet with the NAS plugged into the same hub) be any issues with dropped frames etc? Or would I have to connect it directly via USB/eSata?

The player's NIC will deliver 8-9 MB/sec bandwidth, plenty for streaming BD rips. File transfers top out at around 8 MB/sec here, also plenty for streaming BD rips. BD video/audio runs about 50Mb/sec max. Note the "B" and "b".

It's not a great connection for file management, but plenty good for streaming. Caveat being any competing network traffic on your network.

Ok that's what I needed to know, did not want to waste the money on the program!!

Sometimes they will play without issue and sometimes not. Some rips won't play at all or wont get past the credits, previews, just loops all that over again.

Well well, strange thing happened last night when I tried playing POTC-On Stranger Tides. It actually worked just fine with full menus and everything. I don't think I had tried playing this movie since getting the unRaid server up and running and I'm not sure if that has anything to do with it at all. If I could find the post I would quote it but I'm pretty sure someone here or in another thread (maybe the unRaid server thread) mentioned that they bet I would not have these playback issues once I started streaming from the unRaid. Turns out they are right! Strange.

Sounds very similar to an issue a friend was having with BR-live and not having system storage configured.

Yeah, I had tried that before and had the same problems whether system storage was there or not. I even tried a different USB drive just to rule out a bad one.

I find that you are more likely to have issues when playing back $hitty movies tongue.gif

Ha! I must admit I haven't watched the film in it's entirety yet. You know how we tweakers are, always evaluating and testing things, rarely enjoying the system. Or is that just me?
post #9112 of 10788
As much as I don't want to pay the premium they are asking these days, it's looking more and more like another Dune is in my future. I'm thinking I better snatch up a Smart version of some sort. With everyone else releasing new products adhearing to Cinavia and BD-Lite, it may be worth the extra money to go with Dune again.

Zappiti just announced a new media player. Not sure, but it looks like it could be a Dune branded player???

Edit - it is a Dune branded player

is that supposed to be able to play 3d iso files?

Yes, it appears to be the Dune Base HD 3D model that was announced earlier

Kinda weird, since dune is a big supporter of MyMovies!

Dune can partner with anyone they want. Kind of weird for My Movies to not consider doing something similar with Dune. That's the question.

Although the next gen player from Dune will be questionable since they will not have a BDA license. Who knows what it's capabilities will be at release. No mentioned of BD ISO playback at all on the specs.
post #9118 of 10788
What would that mean for us that use yadis? Will we still be able to with this new model?
post #9119 of 10788
How do you know they will not have a BDA license? At last years CES while at the dune booth, every thing was about my movies! Even down to meeting binnerup! They were supposed to incorporate MM into the GUI. Maybe they went another direction?
post #9120 of 10788
Sorry if this has been asked before, but what ipad apps are currently available to control the dunes library other than 10muse? The only other one i know of is zappiti but i hear its not very good.
