If you are not happy with your 600X3D return it, the specifications dont mention FULL MENU BD support, do they?? they mention Seamelss branched titles support ? why did you bought it in first place ?

you don't care about jukebox, 3D, etc etc then you should develop you own DIY media player, like someone said a few post back....it seems you no everything rolleyes.gif

In the mean time, you should PROVE with your scientific engineer/developer/programar facts , that Java Menus are NOT related with seamless branched titles..and PROVE that is firmware/software issue.

The Old dune support BD full menus, and they don't have issues with with seamless branched titles.
Does the Dune guys are so "lack of brain" that they didnt copy that feature to the new 3D models ???..rolleyes.gif

Good luck presenting your evidences, im looking forward to read them.

It isn't acceptance of low quality that made quality products disappear but the drive of companies to reduce costs and increase profits. Just look at your want ads, the common phrase fast paced environment is utilized almost everywhere. We all know that really means not enough people to do the tasks you'll be saddled with, you can do one job well or three jobs half a*s.

In all honesty I think the only fix could come from sigma for branched Movies. I think realtek is no longer putting out SDK's for the 1186 and with no chipsets planned on the horizon for the market leaves a pretty empty void for now. Maybe mede8er can chime in and answer if realtek is still pushing out microcode fixes.

But there is no true one player is perfect every player has a fault and people find different faults in every player. gapless flac has been fixed on other devices yet people might no use that on another player and think the player is perfect in all ways.

There is only one answer in the media player world does the device fit my needs without much issues or with bugs I can live with. If the answer is yes keep that player if the answer is no dump the player and move on to the next as it might be a better fit.

Sorry. Surely Realtek is the Chip/SDK supplier for Mede8er. This doesn't change a word except replacing Sigma with Realtek smile.gif And I am still not a direct customer of any of them, so can't complain to them about anything.

They are (or at lest some of them) almost exclusive users of these chipsets. Who else can? It is just a matter of written requirements for the supplier.

Sure. How can be a segment with more expensive and lesser quality devices be profitable? Surely it isn't, because there are a lot of disappointed customers screaming all over the internet how all those media players are crap. I am one of them because I can't imagine how is it possible to overlook such basic issue as gapless/seamless playback in any device that calls itself a media player. This simply couldn't happen 20-30 years ago, and it is happening everywhere today.

Considering how this basic problem became plaguing almost every modern media player device in the world it is absolutely healthy criticism to call brain-damaged engineers a brain-damaged engineers. It is the same like designing an intercom device with only one button opening the door, and forgetting the hang up function (yes - that happens, and yes - it is not just an exception, they are everywhere also). Do you think is it normal to have an intercom with a camera, video display, etc. etc., and not able to just hung up the call except by letting the person to enter the door?

We pay a pretty big premium for these devices. There are much cheaper media players on the market. There are much cheaper actual blu-ray players on the market (and those CAN play both - 3D content and seamlessly branch, and can play CDs gaplessly; the content files are the same for both, so it is possible for this money, and it is possible to include even more, such as the BD-drive, Full-BD menu, Java, and plus pay a licence for all of this, all is often done on the same chips, so they are sharing much of the software).

Yes, and I want a media player that does just one thing well - play the media correctly. Everything else is acceptable to be half a*s. smile.gif Unfortunately the only players that do this are the actual CD, DVD, Blu-Ray players (but it is like stone age today to change all those physical disks, we are in 2013 after all smile.gif ). iPhones and Androids finally learned the lesson and started to move in the right direction also. Hopefully soon there will be real competition, and not a few "premium" devices that in reality are just buggy snip of the cheapest Blu-Ray players.

The issue with framerates was fixed not so long ago, this is also quite core feature, if they were able to do this they should be able to do gapless/seamless also. So, the situation is not totally hopeless. And as an alternative there is always a quite obvious workaround for this - filesystem virtualization. They do it for ISO playback already, so they can do it also for virtually merging files in case if the Realtek SDK programming interfaces only allow single file playback. It is a bit more complicated that doing it correctly from the start, but far from impossible. It takes a bit more time to start the playback, but otherwise allows seamless experience in the middle. Probably Dunes did the gapless this way as they are a bit slow on the start pre-loading the metadata from all files in the playlist or folder..

Dune did nothing. The smart series has the bluray stack which as you can assume is a virtual machine that handles the bdmv folder. and builds the playlist and as you wonder who else uses these chipsets sigma is a supplier for a lot of bluray players out there so there bluray stack is complete for there standalone customers. The media player market is niche compared to real stand alone bluray players. The problem arises because these devices are not entirely made for playlist playback. If you ever look at true signage players they all come with software that builds your signage application into a solid video even they dont support seamless playback really.

They shouldn't. It is the media player. It should play the content as it is authored. Any glitch is a bug. 24fps instead of 23.976fps (frame repeats) is a bug. Unexpected pauses between tracks/files composing a play-list, be it a CD ablum or Blu-Ray branch (in the BD-Light there is still a legal branch with all the information allowing it working seamlessly, it is in no way a limitation of BD-Light.

FLACs are not BDMV folder. Dune plays them gaplessly as they are supposed to be played.

Although agree, for video Dune also fails to transition between files seamlessly (non-BDMV). But at least for audio it is seamless and it is much more annoying on audio when there are interruptions in sound. There are just much more existing audio content affected by this. Pauses between scenes are not so annoying on video, at least titles where it is annoying are quite rare yet.

In case of BD-Lite it is essentially picked from a chosen play-list.

BD-Lite has limitations, but seamless branching is not the limitation of BD-Lite. It is a limitation (or a bug) of the implementation. There is nothing in BD-Lite that is limiting seamless branching.

I don't understand how can some review prove that I am wrong, but even this review is in agreement with me. It tells that some media players on the market have unpredictable (buggy) behavior when dealing with branched titles. Which is the same I am talking about. It doesn't tell that it is a limitation of BD-Lite.

It has nothing about branching except telling the "CyberLink PowerDVD 12" passed the corresponding seamless branching test. It seems you just trolling giving the references that have no any information to the discussion and presenting them as "proof" of your totally incorrect statements.

The fact is proven already by presenting the way how it can be played seamlessly without having full BD. Actually full BD does it the same way by joining the playback of several files, just the control is different (through the nice looking Java menu). That is all the difference. If you can't understand it - your problem. Otherwise your statement is a direct attacking with false statements about me, or simply - a lie.
And oh, please. I can tell that the fact that all electronics in your house is in working order depends on my state of mind. I am sure you disagree. Please prove it is not. Can you? I am sure, you cant. So, bye.

I don't have anything that does 3D so I don't need that at all. I just want the best possible sound and video without spending more than the Mede8er costs. I don't care about Netflix or any other apps. Do you think I would be better off with the Mede8er or should I just get another WD?

I have 2 WDTV's that I absolutely detest. They lockup and are the glitchiest things I have ever seen. Tried the PCH 400 but was disappointed. The best part about the WD is that I can have my 3 WD 3 TB NAS right there, adding an additional one is incredibly simple. The best part is that ALL the content is automatically aggregated into one "videos" tab on the home screen. IS this the same with the Mede8er or is there a lot of massaging and additional mods you have to do to get it a la PCH?

You can create one "Videos" tab from all your drives. I actually just had a chance to test out the new Movie/TV Show jukebox and it ran surprisingly well, so this is another positive for those who want to manage everything directly from the Mede8er

Coming from a WDTV and makemkv, I have all my files in mkv ripped using the WD profile for subs. Does anyone know if these subs will work for the mede8er? Don't want to rerip 8TB.
post #1041 of 1300
How are you guys liking your Mede8er's overall?

I have been using a WDTV Live for many years but it is time to replace it. It freezes up on occasion, and lately random movies will get VERY BRIGHT on the screen for several seconds.

Is the 600X3D600 right for me? All I will use it for is high bitrate 1080P X264 MKV files and 3D ISO's. I will be streaming everything to a 30TB ZFS server via Gigabit ethernet.

I like that Mede8er has good support in terms of constant software updates. I ruled out the A-400 due to all the issues. I am now debating between a Mede8er or building my own HTPC.

Thank You!
post #1042 of 1300
I ended up ordering the 600X3D from MediaConcept's. They flashed to the latest firmware and tested before shipping it out.

This is the first time I have had a truly plug and play experience! it took literally 20 minutes to configure everything and to create my shortcuts on the network etc.

I am not even using NFS and 3D ISO's are playing smooth as butter! MKV playback is also flawless and PQ is noticeably better than my WDTV Live. Also, I love that the remote has a backlight!

Now to program this thing for my harmony one, and I will be all set.

Thank you everyone for the recommendation! It is a purchase I do not regret one bit, and glad I went this route over the pricier HTPC route.

That's good to hear. I'm too moving away from WDTV SMP to 600XD primarily for DTS-MA capabilities. My player should be delivered tomorrow.
Since you've been using WDTV before, have you found 600X3D interface to be better/worse/equal?
post #1044 of 1300
Well I had a modified WDTV using the WDLXTV firmware, otherwise it would not pick up my network shares from my 2008 Server R2 NAS.

I feel the interface is cleaner on the 6003XD. Also, I like that when I turn the device on, it will go straight to my shortcuts section so it is few less clicks to watch a show.

The negotiation link between your netgear and mede8er must be 32768 in order to stream full 3D iso blu-ray without any glitch
Check your setting in mede8er player and choose
UDP
32678 Save.

make this test

1- New Diagnostic functionality - Display NFS mount info - Mount a NFS share and press the 'F1' button and NFS connection details will be displayed

EXAMPLE: vers=3,rsize=32768,wsize=32768,proto=udp,port=65535,timeo=7,retrans=3,addr=192.168.10.20

Thanks for the reply.

Just to be clear, the specific problem I had was stuttering audio (it was delayed and breaking up all the time) with 3D ISO's, but I don't think it was the Mede8er's fault. I learned from searching on the Mede8er forum that someone else with my model NAS (Netgear ReadyNAS Ultra 4 Plus) streamed 3D ISO's just fine via UDP, so I was thinking that probably the cascaded switches in my network were causing the issues. When I transcoded the 3D ISO's to MKV files, they worked fine.

When troubleshooting this issue on the Mede8er forum, I ran through the UDP and rsize drills, but nobody ever asked me to post the 'F1' results, so here it is, from my favorite:

rw,relatime,vers=3,rsize=32768,wsize-32768,namlen=255,hard,nolock,proto=udp,Eze?o3 (for the last string, there are accents over the large E and small e, an '~' over the small o, and the number three is actually superscript, so that is to the third power)

Thanks for any input.

If you have a chance, try without the "middle man" aka cascade switch.

netgear > cat 5 > router > cat 5 > X3D

The rzise 32768 should give you 3D iso streaming without issues, i wonder if you have any of does unreliable "powerlines" in between.

Hi Guys,

I have just read the first 4 pages and the last three pages of this thread, not knowing anything about Mede8er products prior to this. I am currently using my HTPC for all 2D video playback and all audio playback, but unfortunately I do not have a 3D HTPC solution. I own both the HiMedia and Micca boxes and have been using the Micca to play back 3D BD-ISO, BUT there are issues:

1. forced subtitles are a BIG problem
2. I must use NFS instead of Samba to communicate with my unRAID server
3. 23.976 hz playback is not right
4. seamless branching titles have problems

Even though many of you did not like IgorZep's posts, he is right on the money - the basic functionality of the media player should be a priority and then the addition of cutesie-cutesie features should come later. From what I gather, this thread was started about a year and a half ago, and even after three complete revisions of the firmware, there are still basic playback issues that remain??? Of the 4 issues I have listed above, if I have read correctly, numbers 2 and 3 have been solved, right? But is IgorZep correct in that gapless/seamless playback has not yet been addressed even after all of this time? And how about honoring the forced flag in subtitles? I know that the PC is a totally different animal, but when I mentioned things like honoring the "default" and/or "forced" flags to the guys who code J. River's Media Center, they had it fixed in less than 24 hours...you mean these guys can't fix this in a year and a half?

So what will I gain if I choose to buy a Mede8er product? From what I have read the only significant gain will be in the playback of 23.976/24 hz material and a cute front end...please tell me I am wrong. I would love to buy this product, and I would spend the money in a second if they have fixed all 4 of my gripes listed...all of them which pertain to BASIC PLAYER FUNCTIONALITY and should have been a priority from day one. Mede8er, this is a NECESSITY, not a luxury!

Mede8er1, since you are a representative of your company, please let me know if and when you plan on fixing these issues, or if you have decided to just leave things the way that they are now because you feel that it is "good enough", or if I am completely wrong and all of these issues have been solved and I just don't know it.

I too wanted to buy the MED1000X3D and waited a year to see how it evolved. No FTP capability is my sore point. Samba just won't cut it!
I also wanted some sort of display (as in the impossible to find MED800X3D) that shows progress activity.
Instead, I just bought a Dune HD Smart D1 Network Media Player. It cost more, but my decision wasn't solely about the price.
I am told the Dune is super stable and plays full Bluray ISO. (It doesn't do 3D, HDMI1.4, or USB 3.0), but that's my trade-off.
The Dune HD Base 3D will do 3D but not menus from Blu-ray discs. the Smart H1 will do full menus but not 3D...
