Yes, the EP250 and EP350 both use the 1073DD C+ chip.

-how do you go about assigning a specific IP? the player keeps saying DHCP is not ready
|Follow those steps, it worked for me cause I have the same problem as you.
Firstly, configure Sharing and Discovery:
1. Navigate to the Network and Sharing Center via the Control Panel
2. Click on the down arrow icons and select ON/OFF as follows:
Network Discovery - ON
File Sharing - ON
Public Folder Sharing - OFF
Printer Sharing - ON
Password Protected Sharing - OFF
Media Sharing - OFF
Next, configure the folder you want to share:
1. Select the folder
2. Right-click and choose 'Share' from the menu
3. From the drop-down box select the Everyone (All users in this list) account, making sure permissions are set to 'Reader'
4. Click the buttons Add, Share and Done.
Here are some further registry 'tweaks' if this doesn't work:

I got my EP250 to log in to my home PC by following the instructions I found on another forum (try searching for "media player login to computer change registry settings anonymous login").
Once I made the registry changes the EP250 logged on to my machine where I have my music and video files.
edit: Here are some links for W7, maybe it will help.
Would anyone who owns the 350 care to comment on video playback?
Has anyone experienced playback issues with 720p and 1080p MKVs?
I was planning on either streaming from my PC with some server, or adding a 2tb HD and playing the MKV's directly from the 350. The connection will be wired.
When all wired to your network, can you just drag and drop files from the PC to the 350? Or is this accomplished in another manner?
*Reviews seem to be favorable for this player on Amazon, but after reading through this thread it seems most owners are experiencing only problems.
might be because the ones who protest are here
I have the 350, I also made a review on amazon.
- I have only experienced one play back issue with one 720p mkv file. it would play it like on 2x speed mode. I'm sure it was the encoding parameters(one of those m-720p files ) besides that one I have not encountered any trouble with regular 4-12GB mkv's. can't speak for iso and other extencions becuase I don't use them. though the only .iso file I have didn't even show up on the player, then again one is none so I can't really coment on that.
-yes you can navigate trough the shared folders of your pc from the 350 and play what ever file is compatible. I've only done this with a couple of standard definition .avi files I have, 720p might work wired but 1080p I don't think so due to bandwith.
-you can drag and drop files from your pc to the player or copy them the other way arround but have in mind that it will be So slow that it will be painfull. the best you can do is transfer the data via USB.
Thanks for the reply.
So the method you use to play MKV's is directly from a hard drive installed in the 350?
The only files it would probably handle streaming without issue are avis?
And file transfer is so slow over the network, that you would transfer from pc to 350 over usb?
I currently use ps3 media server to stream mkv's, but I am not able to fast forward through mkvs without crashing. My PC is a intel i5 with 8bgs of ram, over a 1gb wired network. When I built the computer I thought it would be enough, it was not.
It seems with the playback and transfer restrictions I would be better off purchasing something like an nboxv3 or micca m-play-hd and an external hard drive. Since the 350 and a 2tb drive will be around $170, and I will still have to transfer mass files over USB, I'm not sure which would be better.
Thanks again for your response.
- I use a 1tb western digital caviar green drive that I already had conected in to the 350 bay.
-no, the only files I tested via streaming were avis, I didn't test my mkvs via streaming because I already had them on the 1tb drive. I just said that I think 720p mkvs might work via streaming, but I'm not sure about 1080p.
- yes, at least for me, maybe it's my crappy router (a speedtouch that was provided by my dsl company). others would have to clear this transfer speed thing to be sure it's not my network.
-that is weird, that pc should be enough. are you usign soft subs with ps3mediaserver? because if you are then you are transcoding and there might be your problem. if you arent then theres no need to transcode just repack and it should let you fast forward.
One other question, is audio carried over HDMI on the 350, or do you have to use the optical port? I have a yamaha rx-v667 receiver I would have it running through.
Thanks again. Pming you about ps3 media server question.
