d) the reviewer had't read the spec and complained about the unit not doing something it was never designed to do (VOB files)
So if we take that lot out, there doesn't seem to much left to complain about.
I'm not taking any sides here. I'm very interested in buying this product but there does seem to be quite a negative bias to some of the posts.
a, b, c: You are right
d: You mean my problem with MOV-Files, not VOB-files, right?
You are wrong. MOV is mentioned in the specs:
And it is not a totally new container format. My O!Play is able to play them. Can't you understand the disappointment that you have, when you try to upgrade your media player, buy a newer one for a higher price and have to notice then, that many things work better with the old device?
Maybe you have to make your own frustrating experiences before you give a comment to someone's review...
Found two other bugs:
- When playing a music title and pressing FF, there's no display for the speed (2x, 4x...)
- When playing a folder with videos, you can't jump to the next videos using the "next" or "Prev" keys. They are out of function.
The DVD-ISOs the NeoTV doesn't play are all European PAL format with 4:3 aspect ratio. Maybe this information helps the developers.
"one thing that is bugging me. some bdbackups when you fast forward, pushing the button once gives 2x twice 4x..... problem is if i press play and then press fast forward again it continues with the next level. If my last fast forward was 4x it continues with 8x instead of starting at 2x again."
I can confirm this.
