I should have mentioned earlier, but RMVB capability will not be available until the firmware from the next SDK is released. Sigma has never been able to play .flv files.....though I found it can play some file now as long as the underlying codec used is mpeg4 or something other than flash or VP6.
I had been thinking about to upgrade it to "TVIX Slim S1" , and then I found out the "Tvix Xriod A1" is coming out with USB 3.0, so I got it the first day it was for sale. Big mistakes!!!
Agreed, if you really wanted to use RMVB or FLV files, Realtek based players are better bet.

I have not used the player for music much, just long enough to test it for use with MP3 and FLAC. APE is now supported in the Realtek (S1) player.
As I have mentioned before, this is not a good player to consider, especially this early in the release if you're lookng to play all file types....there is still work to do on some older files (especially with aspect ratio).
The best outcome so far for me has been with playback of Blu-Ray/DVD and recorded transport stream (MPEG-2 and H.264) files....everything else has been unpredictable.
What I have noticed, when the files do play as it should, is the video processing seems to be quite good, better than I have seen in past players.
