Asus O!Play BDS 700?? - Page 6

post #151 of 189
does this player support individual video processing on/off of the qdeo chip?
post #152 of 189
Works better for external Romanian subtitles - I don't have missing letters just funny symbols. Also, has somehow better compatibility with NAD receiver for HD and lossless audio streams (DTS Master and Dolby Digital True HD). I still lost DTS MAster HD stream after 1 hour of Bluray iso view and I could not get back except after I restarted the film.

ISO how from ?
Made by ... ?
post #154 of 189
Man In Black 3. The next day I could watch the rest of the film with the DTS Master sound so it wasn't the iso file. The film just needed a full restart. I think there are still issues with the compatibility with my receiver. Watching different concerts, if I skip to the next chapter I have a pretty good chance to loose the passthrough of lossless track. Usually this is solved by several seconds of rewind.

Hi there,

I would like to know if you are able to SHIFT the picture position UP/DOWN like i do with my Xreamer when watching 2.35:1 movies because i need them in the upper part of the 16:9 frame?

Is DTSMA working fine and is 24p working via USB playback of mkv files?

Thanks guys smile.gif
post #156 of 189
I cannot warranty that the DTS MA works fine, I have my issues with the compatibility with the receiver - NAD. Sometimes - at skip FFW I loose the sound for DTS MA. Usually it gets back if I REW several seconds. I don't know what to say about 24p. Also I have no ideea if you can shift image up or down. This function should be related more to the TV rather than MP.

I honestly can not believe there are still people that use this POS! Having had one, it took me less than an hour to realize just HOW BAD it is!
Seriously BAD. I have had well over 20 streamers in the last two years and this thing ranks 20 on that list...
post #158 of 189
It is not intended to be a streamer and beside that is a good piece of hardware. I still do not believe how many peoples listen to music using more expensive streamer crap sound. I seriously cannot. So, there are very different points of view.

is this player any better now or settled down bit more stable

The bad news is that it still sucks,!!!

Network streaming is hit and miss. Usb playback will studder once in a while and even loose audio sync.

What a piece of garbage!!!

I was stupid and purchased 2 of them before even trying one. There goes $700
post #161 of 189
It´s quite expensive in the US. I got one for 200$. It´s superb for dvd and cd playback but it can´t play bluray discs without crashing at least once per movie. I don´t much care for bluray players for streaming or media center usage. They are to limited and can´t be upgrades by yourself. If it would just been stable during bluray playback and less noisy during bluray 3D playback I would be more then happy with it. The concept is the best out there but the execution should been better. As it´s now it´s a good cd and dvd player but can´t really do anything else.
post #162 of 189
I found so many negative comments to this player so I thougt some positive would be good.
I have had this player for about 2-3 weeks now and my experience so far is:

1. No problemes when playing DVD and Blu-ray disks
2. Streaming from local connected USB disk works fine both for files and iso image (DVD and Blu-ray). My files are mainly 1080P mkv.
3. Streaming over network works fine for mkv-files and dvd image. Haven't tried BD image yet.

I have installed serviio (DLNA media server) on my WHS server to take care of all streaming.
post #163 of 189
well despite all the negative views iv'e orded one last night we will wait and see, for me this player as so much potential i believe it can be all sorted out with more firmware'sup dates , the hard ware. whats in side Qdeo™ video processing ,circus logic cs 4398 top of the range chip 24bit/192 khz gold plated connectors the only thing i will miss is a video wall.
post #164 of 189
I think it´s to late to say it has potential by now. It´s been out for a very long time and we still have a bluray player that can´t play bluray discs. It´s great as a dvd or cd player I have had no problem at all with that. the interface is spot on and it´s very pleasant to operate. I am not really much into the streaming business but it doesn´t have any app for any movie streaming service so it´s really behind there. Work okay with DLNA if you are using a server or something though. It support a lot of file formats but still can´t replace a HTPC so that is a bit pointless for me as well. Regionfree without paying a massive 300$ mod fee is nice though and it´s the last bluray player without cinavia. But anyway I would been perfectly happy with it if it would play bluray discs without hickups or play bluray 3D discs without that immense noise. It do run hot may be the reason for it generally not be able to finish a bluray movie without locking once per movie. If so there may be nothing Asus can do to fix the stability issues. And since there has been no improvement whatsoever from the original firmware in that regard I kind of lost all hope they can fix it. Shouldn´t bluray stability be the number one priority on a so called bluray player?
post #165 of 189
well my bd 700 came this morning having a problem with dlna in that i can see my server when its on wireless but when i go to wired it cant see the server anybody help me out here i can get youtube and radio so its talking to the network but not dlna .
post #166 of 189
well solved one problem got 2 more ,bd 700 was connected to a gigabit switch cut that out the chain and connected straight to the earth net cable which is connected to a gigabit switch up stairs which that feeds the internet,a presto can see all the devices computer , my server can play films,with some slight judder on high bit rate films,but now have no internet down stairs for the sky box,apart from that films do look fantastic and sound is very good ,why would a gigabit switch stop dnla working:mad:
post #167 of 189
i can't figure out how do the analogue audio connectors work if you only want to use them to use with a cd ,can only see settings for audio pass through ,multichannel pcm ,two channel pcm , digital ,optical use they all refer to using hdmi or coax/optical settings,stumped
post #168 of 189
It output stereo sound on the analogue outputs. Last time I check but I suppose you for movies chan choose from 7.1 downmix to stereo or just plain stereo. But for music playback you don´t have to think about that.
post #169 of 189
Read the whole thread, what about:

23.976 smooth playback? (this is something HTPC cannot do without frame skipping)
Does this mediplayer downmix the DTSMA to 2ch pcm like the stupid other PCH etc.


23.976 smooth playback

and

DTSMA decoded and output to multi channel PCM over HDMI is what I am looking for.
post #170 of 189
Hi,

I don't know about smooth playback. However it is a BD player which does it very well.

Yes, it decodes DTS MA to Multi PCM over HDMI.
post #171 of 189
I, want to by one, but with the last firm, is it everything ok, with the sound and playback?rolleyes.gif
post #172 of 189
After finding reclock and J River on the PC I have built a much better HTPC and without spending an extra cent.
post #173 of 189
@jabkata
That really depends on what you are looking for. LAN streaming is not very usefull. Bluray and HDD iso/BD folders (didn't tested 3D) playback is OK. Subtitles support is OK for English subtitles, but lacks for many other languages. I would not rate this as a Final FW, more like a beta 2. But it is relatively cheap for a well constructed MP with BD playback support with a beta FW.

Thanks for the opinion. I will see in future what will happend with this media streamer, because i want blu-ray player/streamer. I know that Oppo is a beast, but is too expensive:mad:
post #176 of 189
If you want media streamer you can also check Dune HD Max. They are more expensive but not as expensive as Oppo.
post #177 of 189
Yes, i know thе reputation of the Dune. Probably, I'll buy one Dune HD Max cool.gif
post #178 of 189
Can anyone confirm if this player is affected by Cinavia, eg, after DW upgrades? Thanks.
post #179 of 189
No Cinavia, but no new FW also.
post #180 of 189
thanks is the player essentially stable for BD ISO playback?
