I don't HAVE to have Blu-Ray menus, although it would be nice to have. Actually at least having menus for the SD DVD's is nice. I don't think there is any dispute there.

I am not sure if they are somehow mixing up bd lite with full bd menu support.

I still have several dune smart players which have full bd menu support. I don't really use bd menus but the added advantage is proper forced subtitle and seamless branch support.

I guess I need something other than MakeMKV to do that? Are there pluses or minuses to using an ISO?

You'll need AnyDVD and / or ImgBurn to create ISOs.

Plus: Full DVD experience - menus, previews, deleted scenes, commentary...EVERYTHING.

Minus: Disk usage. Cannot exclude unwanted extras from the DVD - previews, unused audio tracks, subtitles, etc. The only way around this is to use DVDShrink, to reauthor the DVD structure on disk.

MakeMKV can do full disc rips as well

Just setup my new MED600X3D's in place of my MED450X2's. Absolutely loving it.

And another shameless plug, my MED450X2's are still up for sale in the classifieds (and Amazon).

I was wondering if anone played around with the 3D Depth setting, or whatever it is called for 3D content?

Has anyone here (owner of Med600x/1000x) able to resize their bluray subtitles? I'm not talking about srt subtitles...but bluray pgs subtitles.

I'm looking for a quality media player that can reduce (bluray pgs) subtitles size because I view my blurays on a projector and the standard subtitles are too large/distracting. I can reduce the size to 1/4 of original using pc + JRiver media center but have never seen a stand alone media player that can do that. So far I've tried Oppo93, Boxee Box, Netgear neotv550, WDTV, Tvix 6440.....

...could someone please test this feature out.

Much appreciated.

just got a reply from the moderator over at mede8erforum saying their media players can't resize bluray native pgs sub.

Has anyone seen a media player that can resize bluray pgs sub? I know some can relocate the sub to a lower position etc ...but i'm looking to resize to around 1/4 to 1/2 default size.

Thanks.

You cant. PGS subs are a bitmap format that only thing you can really do is extract them with bdsup and resize then put back

Ive being testing the movie scrape funcionality built-in in mede8er forum and its doing great.
No pc required, its all done in GUI.

Hi all,

I have the 600 model. Does anyone have issues with lip sync? I only have HDMI going out of the unit to my receiver (not using spdif) and it seems that no matter what I'm playing, MKVs of TV-rips/movies, the audio is out of sync. I fiddled with the menu setting for Audio Sync in my med600 from Auto/Manual/Off and I can never seem to get it just right. I never had any issues with my PS3 + Ps3media player. Any suggestions on how to solve this problem?

How do I disable 3D Depth or what the recommended depth setting for 80" screen?

I asked about the 3D Depth setting in the Mede8er forum, and received some information, but did not get the answer I was seeking:

I was wondering what exactly the "3D Depth" setting does, from a technical standpoint.

Please, no need to comment that the name of the setting says it all.

Also, is there a way to turn off the "3D Depth" setting? The default setting is in the middle of the range, if I recall correctly, so maybe just turn it down all the way?

Thanks.


The 3d effect can be increased or decreased by moving the left and right images further apart, or towards each other.

Like colour...this can come down to personal preference.

Are you asking if this can generate 2d by turning it off? The answer is no.


Thanks for the details. Based on your description, the default setting (8, I think?) is essentially not messing with the 3D depth at all?

Your brain interprets what each of your eyes "see" and composes it into a 3D image. On a TV or Screen, all that's being done is offsetting what the right eye sees vs. the left eye. This is why when you don't wear the glasses, you can see a double overlapped image. One of those images is "deeper" than the other one and offset a little bit from the first. The Depth setting technically creates more or less separation between the layers and causes an object to have more or less depth. In reality what you want to use that setting for is to reduce any ringing or ghosting you may see. It should be a one and done setting, but some material may need tweaking.

Leaving the setting at the default will basically allow the display device to display exactly what is on the disc or in the file. If you alter the setting, you're adding more or less depth through the player. There is no way to turn OFF the setting. As mentioned above, if you see ghosting when watching 3D, you can play with this setting to try to reduce it.

Thanks so much for the explanation!

Does anyone know what the default setting is? I played with it, and am now not sure. Would rather not perform a reset of the unit.

My 600x3d is listing songs in alphabetical order instead of track order. I lists them correctly on everything else. Is there an option for this that I have missed somewhere?

I have another problem with the List View + Preview View. My video preview view is cut off/zoomed in instead scaled down to the preview window. Is there a way to adjust the video to fit the preview view window?

Also is there any way to show file size in media list?

I checked both Mede8er and Avsforum and could not find an answer.

Sounds pretty good. Are you guys still using YAMJ to Mede8er? Is Mede8er ever going to support a full 3rd party jukebox like Yadis?

It's nice to know the work on firmware is progressing, but what about improvements in core functionality that is still lacking... Is there any chance proper gapless playback would be supported?
For me, and I am sure many more customers it is more important and 'must have' feature, compared to 'nice to have' convenience features such as scrapers etc.

Not defending Mede8er, but like what (besides gapless playback)? Having tried all the current crop of 3D media streamers, Mede8er overall has been the most reliable for video playback, what all these players are primarily designed for.

I see this topic come up again and again with media streamers. What other streamers out there do this correctly?

Have you checked for any lip sync settings on your receiver? I know mine has one although I don't recall ever changing it from default.

I'd like to see them change the time period of the error out message when accessing the media library while my NAS spins/wakes up. I'd really love it if they could add an option to wake the NAS while the unit boots up but the first would be helpful or maybe less annoying is the better way to put it.

The old 200 series and dune smart series did. The A400 just fixed gapless playback. So a lot of streamers support it. But as you say video comes first. audio playback second. I would really like to see a forced flag fix for mkv as well. I use more then just a mede8er so im not going to go through my collection and remove tracks and mark tracks wrong to get it to play by the work around. I would also like to see a new jukebox come along be it 3rd party or something mede8er is working on.

Absolutely on this one.

How about handling seamless branching without a slight pause (or is that gapless playback?)
post #990 of 1320
No, seamless branching is with titles that have a bunch of m2ts files that make up a playlist. Most players give you a slight pause at branching points. I believe this issue affects all players that only have BD-lite (no full menu support) players, which is basically all the latest generation players (thanks to Cinavia copy-protection). I rip all my movies to MKV for this reason (among others), except for 3D, which I keep as ISO. The seamless branching issue seems to be most noticeable with Disney titles whose playlists contain many m2ts files.
