But I am also considering the Dune HD TV 301. Mostly because the older Dune Hd max has so many users
saying hd max is the most stable player out there. Maybe a little boring but definetely the most stable. I have now tried
boxee box and popcorn hour a-300. Boxee box was very cool and easy, and played everything I had. But the picture
quality was not up to par when I`m using my projector. The a-300 had a little better picture quality and played almost everything,
but is full og bugs and annoyances. It plays large mkv files nice, but for example dvd iso playing is full of errors.
Pq is the most imprtant for me, second is stutterfree playing and things like that. Especially dvd iso`s.
I am wondering which dune do you have, and how does the picture quality on dune compare to the himedia? And of course if you know; witch
player out there do you think has the best picture quality, (and also useable)
Thank you if you can answer this
Regards from Norway!
I have the dune base 3.0 --its an older model that plays everything I have thrown at it---it is in the same look as the max without a bluray player in it.
I have had no problems at all with it--I use Dune Explorer for the jukebox and love having pictures to pick the movies which with the himedia 900b you can only using a list. and as of yet no jukebox software that works
I have a fairly new DLP projector and the picture thru the dune is stunning on a 8 feet wide screen and the video very smooth--better then my LCD tv
I hate the himedia because it has minor stutters on some 2D stuff like my ANDROMEDA series and was very annoying yet played fine on my Dune and my mates Dune Prime
If you are looking for perfect play back the himedia or any Realtek based chip player is not a good choice.
I am waiting on a new dune player with 3D capabilty which hopefully will be out in a year
I cannot give you any feedback on 3D as I havent a setup for that yet
You have had 2 players already and think once you try a dune you will be very happy
I would not suggest a new smart series dune if you are looking to use an internal hard drive as they get hot inside and heat does shorten the life of the Harddrives
I could say a good way at the moment is to get a Dune H1 etc and connect a docking station to it --
You can read alot on these forums about the different players
If you can wait awhile and research maybe a good one might come up
I use dvddecrypter for doing dvd's to iso---its an old program and free and easy to use--and I converted all my dvd collection 900 dvd's to iso with all playing perfectly on the dune
I use DVDFAB to convert bluray's to iso and all play fine on the dune
I am hoping dune will bring out a 3D PLAYER SOON and if it is not full of bugs will get it
I hope this is of some help and like you many here have bought different models and makes of players--we are all looking for stable players
