Nope, couldn't get it to work. I must be doing something wrong. Oh well.

Please don't go to any trouble. I'm happy with Xtraios but I'd be more than willing to try out the "hybrid" firmware and report back

You will need to re-run the jukebox program (because all the files will need to be rewritten to include the new movie), its almost an automated process given that the program allows you to save the current movie list. so you can always "load list", add new movie, create jukebox and "save list" before quitting.

OK, Thanks. I assumed as much, seeing the numbers on the file names.

Hi,

I was wondering if anyone else experienced this issue:

I have a Pivos running Xtraios 3.012 firmware. The pivos is connected via hdmi to my receiver and my receiver is connected to my tv via hdmi.

When using the Pivos to play a movie with 5.1 DTS-HD MA or 5.1 TrueHD, my receiver's display indicates that it is receiving a DTS HD MSTR or TrueHD stream with 5.1 channels.

If the movie has a 7.1 DTS-HD MA soundtrack, my receiver's display indicates that it is receiving a DTS HD MSTR stream with 7.1 channels.

BUT, if the movie has a 7.1 TrueHD soundtrack, my receiver's display indicates that it is receiving a TrueHD stream with only 5.1 channels. According to the info screen on the Pivos, the soundtrack is MLP 7.1 @ 48khz.

Anyone else experience this issue?

Please let me know.

Thank you.

So with the rebate ending April 30th on the current player does that mean that "thing (or two) coming out soon" will be the first week of May?

Would the latest "semi-official" be the best firmware to run on the device?

How do I determine the "boot code "version of the Aios? I just received mine and I'm definately going to be flashing to the latest of either the official or semi-official and want to make sure there are no extra flashings that need to be done.. or if they need to be done..

Better to wait till after the flashing to copy my mkv's and m2ts files over to the internal storage?

The bootcode is available from the info screen (Setup -> Misc -> version info)



If you are going to use the internal storage I would recommend formatting the drive in ext3 (there is a command by command how-to on the official pivos forums).

What do you guys want to know ?

It comes pre-rooted, running GB (upgradable to ICS4 pretty soon), it has market out of the box, supports flash and HD video decoding, built in wifi and wired LAN.

And yes, its seriously slim (I am talking the size of a pocket wallet slim).

What about DTS-HD MA and TrueHD?

What chipset does it use? Is it Android only OS or dual boot? Does it come without the eye scathing orange UI and built in jukebox functionality?

The paradigm has shifted. ISO is no longer a video file, its a data file. You just need to find a program from the Google market that is capable of opening an ISO file then play the contents using a compatible media player.

I can only vouch for stereo downmixing (as I don't have a HDMI AVR) which works fine for both tracks. I was told the hardware is capable of bitsreaming of both of them but the current kernel only has TrueHD enabled (this info is current but might change at launch).

An Arm Cortex A9, android only, there is next to no customization (beside the boot image, boot animation and one background), you get a rooted, market capable gingerbread box with a kernel that supports video/graphics hardware acceleration and the sky is your limit

not that I know of, but you can use any PC based YT Down loader and resulting flash file would be playable on the AIOS.

There's a plethora of identically spec'd generic Chinese players out there in the $100 range. The video reviews show very snappy interface. While the idea is cool the lack of documentation and support has kept me from trying them.

This kind of device introduces the issue of control for a cursor based interface. Will there be a "wii-mote" like the AC Ryan Veolo, or just mouse compatibility? Another thing I'm curious about, is will it have an optical out?
post #477 of 1110
Will it have full support for BD menus and all the extras, that's the only thing I kinda missed in my player, not enough to make me hate it, but it would have been nice to have it like it sounded like it had when it first came out.
Doesn't sound like this one can support a internal hard drive either but with the extremely slow network issues the drive I put in mine is useless till I get a long enough USB cable to jack it directly into my PC.
I'll probably pull the drive back out and either put it back into the external case it came in or stuff it in here for now to help hold all the HD stuff I'm capturing.
The android support sounds cool though seeing how I've been playing with a couple of cheap no name Tablets, the latest one has 4.0 and capacitive multi touch for 100 bucks and plays angry birds glass smooth

The unit will come with an IR remote (for navigate and click functionality).
Pivos will be selling a gyroscopic controller as an optional accessory.
Any USB device (HID profile) will work fine (point, click and drag).
No optical output, its really slim just enough space for mSD card (flushed in), 3 USB ports, 1 HDMI, power plug, power button and LAN.

It comes with Android (and bunch of apps ... media players, file managers, vpn client, UPnP client, adobe pack..) you are on your own regarding the apps you want to use.

Have you tried formatting the drive in ext3 ? there is reports of improved speeds and reliability (especially for transmission), there is a how-to thread on the Pivos forums.
post #479 of 1110
I did try to format it to ext3 but couldn't quite follow the directions so I used what I could and as far as I know I did get it formatted to ext3 and added the drivers and things so that windows7 can see and read it.
The files transfers start out at 10kbs but then quickly drop down to about 2 or less so I gave up for now and haven't put anything on the internal drive.
Pushing files into the two externals jacked intro my old Live even with a 100 connection runs 9 to 10 so I run files in through it slowly, but much faster then if they were directly hooked to the Aios. The Aios sees the drives from the live fine but my BD ISO's get a bit choppy playing this way, everything else works just fine. Probably too much overhead going through the two units but it works fine otherwise, plus the lives USB ports stay active when it's off so I can see and use the drives any time my box is on.
I hope realtek gets the network transfer speed issues sorted soon, other then that I love my unit.

I think supporting BD ISO full menus would be better than to support higher transfer speed since no of the media players today can get any higher than 6 MB/s. Media player are made to play media no to transfer files. It is a waste of storage and time to install an internal hard drive to any media player. In my opinion it is better to have a centralized storage location, and share your media throughout the devices. This will get you faster transfer and sharing speeds. Other than that good luck trying to find any media player that can get any higher than 6 to 8 MP/s.
