You guys do know they put out a hotfix for some of the MCE issues, right? I don't know if it fixes the command line issue with MM3, but, it's worth checking out. As this is an initial release, I'm not sure why people are expecting perfection given that *NO COMPANY* that has a player has ever released a flawless first new major version. PDVD10 had issues. PDVD9 had issues. TMT2 had issues. TMT3 had MANY issues. All improve over time. I'm not saying that TMT5 is for everyone, but, it's as though people forget that updates get released to fix problems.
I'm not directing this at anyone in particular, and I already knew Vladd's opinion anyway.
I can completely respect it. But, this is not the final release of TMT5. It's the first. And it's to be expected that there's going to be issues.
Anyway, just my opinion. For me personally TMT5 is a step up, but, then I don't use the MCE interface for it. Yet.
