Good luck. I've never seen them on sale. You might be able to buy a used one for less.

Second, maybe this is not the right place to post this question : feel free to move it to the right topic then.
Until now, I was using an internal HDD in my MED1000X3D (with 1.0.5 firmware) that worked well.
Instead, I try for several days now to connect my Mede8er to my PC in order to directly watch movies and pictures stored on my PC (Windows 7 - 64).
I have read many topics on this forum but I still can’t see my shared folders in the “media library”, “network” (or “DHCP” ) menu of the Mede8er, no matter what (I only see the “MED1000X3D” and my “internet box” folders).
I can access to internet (youtube…) through the Mede8er.
In the same time, I see the Mede8er on my PC , when checking the “network”.
(I tried the “Mede8er Share Manager”)
I thought it was because of the switch (Netgear GS105E) I use between the PC and the Mede8er (in order to plug the internet cable) so I’ve tried to connect directly those two, through a single RJ45 cable, without any other devices, nor internet.
But it’s still the same…
For the moment, I try to use Samba (without any passwords set on the Mede8er Samba menu),as I only watch 2D.
The mede8er LAN menu is set in DHCP.
On my PC, the IP address is set “automatic” in the options of the network controller card (do I have to choose a specific and constant IP ?).
In the Samba menu of the Mede8er, I can change the “workgroup” name to another one : I have tried to enter my PC “name” (which looks like “XXX-PC”)…still nothing.
Maybe the workgroup on my PC is not named “WORKGROUP” ? How and where can I check this ?
I have seen on the forum that I can manually add shortcuts to my PC shared folders but I have to enter its IP address: how can I do that because it’s changing each time, being set to “automatic IP” ?
Also, do I have to create a “homegroup” in windows ?
And on my PC, I only use an administrator session (with my name but no password) : do I have to enter this information anywhere ?
This is driving me mad, thank you in advance for your help !

At laaaaaast !!!!!!!!!
I have found the answer : I don't know why but in the options of my realtek network controler, the first three options :
"client for microsoft networks"
"Qos packet scheduler"
"File and printer sharing for microsoft networks"
were unchecked.
I've checked them all and : now it works !
Maybe the three are not necessary but only one of them ? I don't know.
Anyway, thanks for helping !

That's good to know. I'll make a mental note of this. I didn't think that would make a difference, but Win 7 is weird with network shares.

When using the Media Library to look at what is on the internal hard drive, is there a way to scroll a page/screen at a time instead of one file at a time with the remote control?

Also, is the add-on MEDX2KEY USB WIRELESS KEYBOARD able to scroll a page at a time?
post #878 of 1300
I know it's possible. I do it all the time with my Harmony remote. Sorry I don't know which keys on the included remote do page up/down.

May 21... can't wait. Will there be guides on setting up? From screenshots, it appears Y2M output is supported; hopefully TVRename output as well for TV shows.

Greetings all and this is my first post here on the forum.

I'm looking to upgrade from my WD Live Plus media player and the MED1000X3D is on the short list. I was wondering if anyone knows anything about or has had dealings with the merchant www.mediaconceptusa.com that is offering it for sale online. Their only contact is an email address and I am always a little wary of sites that operate without a phone number. Thanks in advance for any guidance anyone cares to offer.

Well I have seen a few posts in this thread speaking favourably about Media Concept but I still want to know if that information is current.

I noticed on the Mede8tor website a new model listed at MED800X3D. I emailed Media Concepts this morning asking if they had received any of this model and the cost. It looks like the 1000 specs, but in a traditional square case.

I saw that too. Please post with their response.

Specs look same as 1000X3D except going with the case from the 500X2 series

It also says limited to Europe/Asia so you're out of luck at the moment. Doesn't mean it won't be available in the US down the road.

I purchased from MediaConcept at the end of December 2012 without issues. I purchased using PapPal which adds a layer of security to your purchase - fraud and dispute protection.. Using a credit card via PayPal adds an additional layer of security .

I love the MED1000X3D. I do not need a TV jukebox - one complaint about the software - and the box does everything I need.

I do have two caveats:

1) The remote control supplied allows for scrolling one file a time on the hard drive instead of a page at a time, at least that I can tell. The add-on keyboard controller does allow page scrolling and I've read that some of the Harmony remotes will do this as well.

2) Twice I have had the issue where a deleted file returns the next time you start the player back up. This is remedied easily: http://www.mede8erforum.com/index.php/topic,10143.0.html

Thanks for the reply StratmanX. I still have yet to hear anything from Media Concept but I may chance an order yet. Hopefully they fill orders with greater fidelity than they respond to emails!

I ordered from them in December as well, no problems. They were also quick to ship.
post #897 of 1300
Has anyone had any dealings with Media Concept since December of 2012? Can't seem to find anyone posting a transaction date after that.
post #898 of 1300
Yes, bought my 2nd 600X3D in late April this year. Quick shipment, no issues.
post #899 of 1300
Just bought mine less then 2 weeks ago. Really fast shipping, came days before I was expecting. Only thing was they opened and updated it prior to shipping (came with a little printout saying they did so). I much rather would have done it myself with a sealed box showing up to my door. Didn't look like a used or refurbished piece but then again, I never will know for sure. It works fine though. I'd imagine you could put a note in your order saying not to do so.
post #900 of 1300
I've purchased two from them no issues, and prompt support and exchange for a power supply.
