I don't notice it either since they fixed output for both 2D and 3D film-based BD's (which is almost all) since a couple of firmware updates ago to exactly 23.976. I have an Optoma HD33 projector.

I have a specific question for the MED1000X3D users:
What I need is 'dual-audio output'. With this I mean audio both send over SPDIF (the core DD/DTS signal) and simultanously the lossless DTS-MA/True-HD signal over HDMI). The Dune and Oppo have this 'feauture' for example.
Could someone check for me if this is supported by MED1000X3D?

Guys think the a400 is worse then this one?

post #307 of 1300
Verdict is still open as most of us don't have our A-400's yet. But, the 1000X3D is already a solid, capable, mostly bug-free player.

so the med is the best?

Can you give us a hint?

Unless Canton is referring to their "Added net API for future development" comment, Mede8er hasn't said anything in their regular or beta tester forums.
post #314 of 1300
Thanks for the PM Canton. Will wait for Mede8er to continue the great support they've been doing.
post #315 of 1300
Oooooh! What's the surprise, a black version smile.gif Does look much better than the silver one, that's for sure.

Mede8er has a new 3D model

MED600X3D with 1186 realtek chip only 139€ , probably same firmware

post #317 of 1300
I see. So it looks like the main difference between the 1000X and 600X is that the 1000X allows for an internal HDD along with a USB 3.0 connection, correct? Other than that, it appears they play the same types of files, formats, etc. So for about $70 bucks less, that's not too shabby!

I believe I read that if you have an external usb 2.0 drive connected to the device and you're playing full 3D iso's, you'll be ok, correct? So no lagging, skipping, or audio drop outs correct? I'm asking because I may have to pick up the 600X for downstairs as the tv is 3d, but I always watch my 3d content upstairs. Then once I see more reviews on the PCH A400, it'll let me know if I want to purchase the 1000x3D or A400 upstairs.

Man, this is super tempting. I've been waiting awhile to get a good 3d iso media streamer w/o having to pickup an htpc.

So if playing 3d iso's via usb 2.0 works correctly, can anyone let me know what other benefits there would be of having a usb 3.0 vs usb 2.0 on these devices to playback your content? I guess if you have gigabit ethernet, which I do, you can copy files off your network and onto the usb 3.0 attached to the mede8er much faster than usb 2.0? Then I guess for personal preference, some prefer an internal hdd vs an external connection, and that would be the only other benefit of the 1000x vs 600x?

Thanks,

Yes, 3D plays back fine via USB 2.0. In the 1000X3D, USB 3.0 serves a host function anyway, not slave for attaching a USB drive for playback off the player. For file copying, just better to attach to your PC, copy, then move to the Mede8er. The only benefit of the 1000X3D I see is 3.5" internal HDD.

Thanks Brajesh! I see now. So if you have the 1000X3D and put in an internal hdd, then if you plug in the USB 3.0 cable and attach to say your PC, it allows you to copy content from your PC to the internal hdd correct? I assume you could do this via ethernet was well, but that would probably be much slower than using USB 3.0. Therefore the USB 3.0 is NOT used for attaching external drives for playback, but only the USB 2.0 ports are. It makes sense now, thanks for the clarification! So yeah, the main benefit is the internal hdd between the two devices, and as you mentioned, it's better to copy content from your PC onto an external drive then to manually move and attach to the devices.

I did see that the 1000X3D also has an external IR jack. Is the IR used only to allow other universal remotes to control the device, say like my Harmony One? I guess since the devices come with a remote, this isn't a big deal, unless you despise having extra remotes laying around.

Thanks

Does this unit have a ********** client, or can a torrent client app be downloaded? Please don't harp on me about piracy. Hollywood hasn't released a movie worth the bandwidth it takes to download in the past 5 years anyway. My downloads mainly consist of Network TV series that are freely available with a rooftop antenna, my HOA just wont allow a rooftop antenna and rabbit ears just don't do the trick.

I have never been successful getting the external IR jack to work on the 1000X3D.  Reading the support forums, apparently others are having similar problems.  I like the unit but the IR jack has proven useless so far.

Another difference appears to be availability :-) I don't see it on MediaConcept's site yet.

Yes, and it's quite fast to copy files to the 1000X3D's internal HDD this way.

Looks like the forum blocked the first part of what you typed in, but torrent, I believe yes. I don't use it, but see a 'Transmission BT' option in Settings, Under 'Network'.

Streaming via smb or nfs?

Also, regarding subs you should clarify that forced subs do not work
post #326 of 1300
i use NFS
i followed this guide

http://www.mediasmartserver.net/2011/12/23/guide-setting-up-nfs-in-whs-2011/

true no forced subtitles.

it seems they manage to improve samba using makemkv, seems its possible (or will be ) stream the highest bittrate 3D content, according to their forum.

regards

Canton, do you use WHS? If not, it must be a server that supports NFS 32K. If not, you'd get stuttering with several of the 3D titles you listed. Mede8er has told me they're working to improve SMB performance, but no promises of course. For now, I just use a Sans Digital USB tower connected directly to my 1000X3D via USB 2.0.

i keep my 2d in synology using samba due the synology limitation 8k over nfs, and the high bitraite 3D are in the whs, have being tested all week with no issues.
also no worries from external / internal hard drive in high bitraite.

also i was aware today that mede8er improved (again) the smb protocol over mkv , and will be enough to streaming 3d mkv , probably is coming in next firmware, but require a few more tests before being release.

I have read and read and read this section and STILL I am too stupid to figure out if all the frame rate issues are fixed with this player? Can someone tell me? I have one of these sitting in a box but was waiting for that to be fixed before I fire it up...

there was some tests in mede8er forum, and some users with projectors was able to test a patch/code regarding frame rate with success 23,976 in 2D and 3D.
it has a very smooth image like i never seen in any media player, the pj shows the correct framerate of 23,97hz and 59,93hz

i remenber this was a promise by @jack micca a few months back with micca ep950, but it was never solved, but it seems mede8er is solving all issue with 1186 chipset.

this patch/code will be implement in futures firmware but it will take some time maybe 4 weeks or less....
