That means your tv did not like the Auto Mode of the PCH going over compoenent under setup video set the resolution to something your tv can handle,

So I'm in file browsing mode & I have thumbnail view mode set, however there is no album art displayed. If I hit info it shows all metadata, fan art, & poster/thumbnail. What up wit dat?

are you in NMJ view or list view outside of NMJ if its outside that is how it should be

### Gear mentioned in this thread:

I was happy to finally check an A400 out tonight. My friend bought one and brought it over my place, since he knew I had a couple of Dune players and was into media players.

He already updated to the latest firmware. Basically I went into my movie collection and tested some movies out. 8 out of 10 movies I played all stuttered and had bad audio sync issues. Removed the A400, connected my Dune to the same cables and tried to play the same movies. Don't have to say it, do I? Well they all played fine. My friend was kind of distraught thinking he got the "best" player on the market. I told him he will either have to wait for a year or so until the firmware stabilizes or try to sell it back or return it. We all know Syabas is known for releasing products WAY to early and letting the customers go through all the beta testing and firmware fixes which = frustration. I praise the Dune because out of the box the player played just fine. The firmware was stable enough to play all video content with no issues where it couldn't be used as a media player. The Syabas products out of the box aren't capable of being a media player. If you can't play video content out of the box then what's the point? Anyway, we went through all the settings, reset them, rebooted the device, tried to update firmware again, setup NFS shares instead of SMB. Nothing seems to help. Really, I was really excited when I heard this player was coming out but I guess I'll have to wait and find out what else comes out. I would love to find another Dune Prime. Since Dune's prices are ridiculous and now their players cost hundreds and hundreds of dollars I just can't see paying that much. They want $600 for their new HD MaX player which has the same chipset as my Prime, the 8642. I only paid like$299 I think for my Prime. Anything else out there that can play normal out of the box these days, instead of waiting months and months for new firmware updates? When I buy something I want it to play like it should, like my blu-ray players I have.
No owner of a Dune is surprised at all...
I know how closed minded you are about dune but did you have a spare switch to try? Current running theory is pause frame is running to aggressive, As people with higher end switches that flow control is disabled by default seem to get 30MB/s both ways speeds, While people that have switches with active flow control get lower speeds to the A400 but get close to 30MB/s coming from the A400.

What was surprising is everything is now almost up to date inside the A400, so could even be a drive issue, linux kernel its running actually came out this year. Its no longer the version from 2008, which I was amazed at that.

Halfelite...don't mean to be a buttinski; because I know I am not a regular combatant, uh contributor to this thread But isn't that kind of the point, for the "Dune just works" argument? You don't have to worry about the switch, drive, etc. What you're basically saying is...the A-400 works just fine; as long as everything is "just so" around it.

For geeks...and I used to be one of them...who want to chase the thing, and tweak; might sound like small potatoes. For others, who don't want "plug and play"...no streamer is plug and play; but want only moderately challenging...all that shite is a PITA.

I was a HUGE PCH guy, and jumped off at the C-200 for exactly this kind of thing. I have to say...to a guy, admittedly, out of the loop for a while; it doesn't sound like much has changed.

But DUNE does not just work, It has same problems with GigE switches as pointed out by MR Eric who uses Dune a lot dont think he even owns a PCH anymore. Thats why i always laugh at DUNE just works as it suffered the same network issues as the 200 and 300 series as its all the same SIGMA backend for networking. There is zero control from pch or DUNE on the network side besides the linux driver. the PHY,MAC,NIC are all sigma code based. Same as no forced tracks work in DUNE unless you do the user DSF file which even then is hit and miss , I have ran DUNES i know how they are also. And just to point this post was made in the DUNE thread a few hours ago
http://www.avsforum.com/t/1439220/dune-zappiti-announces-new-blu-ray-3d-media-player/30#post_22642229 Same suggestion I have for a PCH and people scream and kick yet the advice is ok for the DUNES lol. I know this is DUNE territory over here so im up for taking some licks.

I will be really interested to see when the Zappiti box comes out as im betting it runs the same firmware as the tv301 being the same chipset family, and how well it will play over.

But Im just giving advice to try get people to enjoy and watch movies. Ranting all the time about DUNE does this PCH sucks balls, or PCH does this DUNE sucks balls gets people no where and its really bad advice. I hate nothing more then a conversation that tries to steer someone to one product, PCH sucks, Dune sucks, micca, mede8er all of them have flaws it just depends if you can live with the flaws it has. Each persons setup is different each persons media is different. You can see my past posts if someone asked about BD iso files I even told them Dune is the best bet for them and plays them better then the PCH, if someone says hey I like to watch lots of subtitles or anime I would recommend them towards PCH as it has a little better subtitle support.

I removed the switch entirely and hooked directly up to two different routers. First router was a DLink DIR-655 and the second router was a Netgear. Don't remember which model, but it is a late model all with 1GB connections on it. Same results on two different switches. I asked my friend to stop back over on the weekend and I would try to "mess" around with it but I thought about it, there isn't much we can do. Also, if there are issues with certain switches then there is something wrong with the player itself. This is why we have ISO standards and networking protocols. If the player doesn't adhere to these standards that are out there for a reason then of course issues like this are going to happen. Not being able to work properly with certain switches could be just a tip of the iceberg of underlying issues? Hey, I want to help him, I really do want to help him and make him like his player. What to do?

For years now the C200 plays pretty much everything without issue. Although it didn't start out that way.

Each persons setup is different each persons media is different

I own two Dune players. Have had them for about 3 years I guess and both of them have been through about 4 different brand switches (all 1000GB) and having no problems at all. Since I'm %100 network play here and don't use local drives I would notice networking issues like that pretty quickly. I've even taken my players to family gatherings like Christmas holidays and played through other networks with no problems either. Since day one I got my Dune players I have always been able to play through my network with no issues at all. I do have to use NFS, but that is a fact to be more efficient regardless. If Dune does come out with a new Prime model with new 3D capability and newer features like HDMI 1.4 and all that I really would for sure think about paying $600 for one player. All for the fact that I know it will play with no issues out of the box. I can't comment on the SMART series, but since they all run off the same base type firmware I don't see how different they can be? Their build quality is excellent, never had any heat issues, and never came out with a product and then charged people for a metal case for better cooling.

Maybe if everyone sticks with their A400 by this time next year maybe will have a nice stable firmware?

What to do? Few things I would try is if you have a crossover cable connect directly to a PC that would disable any Flow control, that might be running. And just posting the model numbers of switches you tried is a good start maybe we can find some sort of pattern, I run an HP proCURVE and hit 30MB/s both ways, I know the D-link DIr-655 had mixed reviews on the 200 series and a jump to a new sdk totally broke it for one user. his reply was "Does not work very well the max speed is 9MB/sec but normally around 6-7MB, and frequently freeze,lockups all the time using FTP.smb.nfs.http. Is all very unstable" So you saw similar results with the A400. And I am a betting man but I have a feeling all new players that use the lightweight sigma sdk will have similar issues, it was seen starting when the c200 switched then again with the a300 and now worse on the a400, Although it could be users could set to 10/100 on older units, the few reports I saw on the v8 and tv301 seem to point to they are affected as well. As you i have had the same switch, worked with A100, 200,300,400,v8,nixeus,roku,tivx,Dune,mele was hit and miss but that was the firmware on it, But seems some boxes just dont like some switches from all companies.

That's awfully generous manner of thinking that I don't think we'd apply to any other purchase...They need to get things fixed right away, or forget it - who wants to keep something that doesn't work well? Right now, the Micca EP950 is MUCH more stable than the A-400 - it's issues (from my perspective) are: a - no Jukebox, cover art only b- 24 hz instead of 23.98 for 3D c- no tablet software to control/drive it d - small glitches in some seamless branching BD's But's it's fast, has excellent video quality, BDMV, ISO, MKV, and numerous other formats supported, DTS-MA HD and True HD support, auto refresh rate switching. No stuttering, no glitches, no dropouts, no lip sync issues. I was hoping the A-400 had all the good qualities, while addressing Micca limitations noted above, but i've gone way backwards with this box. I'm giving it another week or so.

I guess you don't need or want BD menus? One of the reasons way back in the day I went with the Dune for the full BD menus and at that time I had no clue about media players. I've learned a lot since then and began to appreciate the Dune players since I have been able to compare it to other different models of other players. I do own a Popcorn A-210 and while it is an OK player it just doesn't do it for me. Yea, it does play most things I throw at it but audio issues are a big problem. Being out of sync all the time kills me. I'm talking about almost every video I play with it. Besides the point, I'm just a little biased towards the Dune, since it has always been good to me since day one. Hey, I like this. Years ago I remember this forum was booming big time and then it just died out completely. It is nice to see new posts here and there. I'm a moderator at MPCClub and they died down also. I hope it all picks back up a little bit. I still think a media player is much more versatile then a "networked TV" or something like that. So many people say to me, "I don't need a media player, I have Netflix". God how I hate to hear those things. I won't even get into the conversation about video quality or audio playback because they will have no idea what anything is. As long as their TV and Ipad can play Netflix they have a better setup then any media player out there.

I thought about trying one but the Jukebox support on it really kills it for me, Still thought about trying it as a bedroom unit though for the kids as they only watch movies. but the V8 is still cheaper and no 3d tv in the kids rooms so no reason yet to pull the trigger on it. Plus im saving up my amazon bucks for a new tv. MPC used to be a good place now im lucky to even read or post a thread without getting hit with the error about going over host limit or not paying or some random error.

Yes I needed BD menus since I only rip full BD ISOs, but I also wanted the option of playing the movie right away with BD lite. The Dune back then only had BD menus. Which is why the C200 was more versatile with BD ISOs than the Dunes were back then. I never used the A-210 but I did use the A-200. The A-200 and C-200 didn't have any syn problems for me.
Of course no media player I've ever used has come close to perfect. The media player that has come closest to working best with my tastes is the Boxee Box. Unfortunately they did not come out with a second version. But it has worked the best for content aggregation from multiple shares for me.
WOW!!! I was thinking of selling my PCH-A210 to get the new A-400, but I think I am going to wait for a few months and see what happens.

They seem to have fixed that . . . but Hi-Jack is spending his time elsewhere . . . too bad.

problems over mpcc are solved (massive spam in one of the sub forums ), so you can come back

true. I'm using intensively my Dune Smart, but in fact never had a PCH...

But I'm not a fanboy fact is that it seems that Dune players have a problem with netgear switches (at least some of them) and I already saw some people solving this problem by simply changing their switch for another brand. BUT fact is also that the A400 seems to have many problems with many switches, and not only switches but also with Syno NAS where you need to double check settings (not the most obvious ones) to make it work. That's the big difference...

A400 will certainly be a good product, but right now it's a big mess. BUT no one can say that this is a surprise, when buying a brand new player using a brand new chipset everybody should be ready to be a beta tester and not coming back whining about "it doesn't play this" , "ican't do that", blablabla... As you say, I'm pretty sure that the new zappiti player will have its own bunch of bugs, may be not because of the chipset that will be very similar to the current ones, but certainly because of the new "dynamic" firmware part and new UI "xbmc style". Personnaly I won't buy a zappiti player coming from the zappiti guys who are updatng their own software at least once a week (if not more) and which is never really stable...

the 200 series was the same a few switches then it seems a switch in sigma sdk made it worse, And the samba SYNO nas we have been begging for them to fix. Synology switched to smb2.0 and the version of samba that PCH uses it right below the version that got 2.0SMB support. hoping they switch up to samba4.0 so it can be somewhat ready when smb3.0 takes over
Hi people,made a homemade video abou my popcorn hour A-400, everything is working great ! ENJOY!

i notice in your video the videos you show are encoded in x264, for me does vides are not blu rays quality, they are encoded in x264, so a lower bandwidth that a full blu ray

hight bitraite = higher quality

t's not just resolution though, bitrate plays a vital role. For example the 1080p rips I have are around 70mbps . it is important to check the bitrate, anything much lower than these values will start to give a noticeable drop in quality.

actually i got the avatar full disc (45gb) and then recently got a 23gb 1080p x264 encode of it - I am hard pressed to see a noticeable different, even on a 40 inch tv, im my 90 inch screen its a no go.

back on topic if your movies.mkv have lower bandwidth thats the main reason you A400 plays it with no issue, if you downloaded from some torrents who nows how many times has being encoded

1. Condition and quality of the source
2. The number of times it has been encoded
3. Which encoder was used (they are not all equal)
4. How the encoder was configured
5. Overall video bitrate

regards
What rips do you have that are 70Mb/s? Only 3D rips are going to be that bitrate. Any 2D rips are going to be under 54Mb/s.
canton160 while your fustration is valid, there is no need to qualify Rui's experience......There are many users out there who will use the A400 for MKV only and may never run into the issues that some of the users in the forums do....It always good to get as many reports as possible, becasue of the varied base that will be using this type of product....I

BTW I would be saying the same thing if it was high rate BR rips that played and mkv didnt

I do feel that you should be able to play your high rate BR rips without issue, I am all for that since these are the best representation of the original media....I am hoping that they do work out the bugs currently showing up, but I was not surprised (I didnt take into account prior decives) becasue when you start to expand your base from ouside Alpha\beta there are always setups and files that you didnt have the ability to try.....With as many firmwares as they ahve had over the 1st 2 weeks of this being available, it does speak well for them at this point. Many companies take months if not years to get this many firmware fixes out....
So, I let the NMJ run all night, updating my video, photos, & music. Everything is stored on a raid set up in my pc currently, connected via lan. I woke up this morning & went try it out. First there was just a blank screen. So I tried to power the unit off & then back on via remote, nothing happened. So I unplugged the unit & plunged it back in & it reset itself. I was hopping to see the NJM pop-up, wrong. So I jumped onto my IPAD & fired up the app & browsed, to the My folder & it asked me to update the NMJ. I think I'm missing something. Any suggestions
I have my default user document shared on the network should I setup a folder with just the media want to share.

I'm finding the NMJ very flaky.

If I used the built in scraper, it gets a lot wrong, even at times mixing the correct cover are with the wrong title and fan art. And it ignores several titles for no apparent reason and with no error message if there is an issue

I deleted everything and started fresh, using My Movies meta data support - on the initial add of the share, it seemed to be ok, though it still ignored certain titles. When I rebooted the A-400 and went back to the Jukebox, it gave me a dialog about updating or restructuring the database, which it did. The next time I launched it, and showed be the splash startup screen (the marketing image of wall art) with no option to proceed except to add folders (which I already had). It then proceed to rescrape everything and returned me to the poor, pre-MyMovies state I first started with.

I also have one or two HD-DVD rips, in their own folders like everything else, but for some reason, NMJ displays all the .m2ts video files as generic icons sprinkled throughout the main listing of all other movies, creating a mess of an interface.
Okay.....I'm trying my best to quell the urge to take this thing out to my driveway and smash it flat.

I can't get past setting up a share. Once I access a folder on my NAS the next time that I come back I get "Share no longer exist". If I restart everything it will allow me to access it again...once, then it's over.

I'm running on a CAT5e network with gigabit switches. Here's my setup: Synology DS1511+, Linksys E4200 router, Cisco SR2024C Gigabit Switch (in panel), Cisco SLM2008 Gigabit Switch (in A/V cabinet).

I too am a DUNE (two D1's) user with zero problems on the same setup.

Any thoughts?
I had issues with shares disappearing but that was from trying out several switches. No idea why they would show up as empty, but since I haven't messed around with changing any switches it has been fine.

I tried the 15 or so old switches I had with different revisions, and then when I came back to the switch that had been working, it didn't like before I ended up resetting the switches that were in that chain and it worked properly again, but then it had issues again. So a BD ISO would play for a while and then start to have issues that seemed bandwidth related.

So in the end I removed the old Netgear gigabit switch, and put an old Dlink gigabit, Revison A3 switch between my newer Dlink and the A400. I'm leaving it like that for now and i might tinker a little with it, but otherwise I plan on waiting for the next firmware.

Although I would like to get the android app but I have no way to download it. Does anyone know where I can get the APK for the android NMJ navigator app?
