Now funny story, I bought your old MEDE*er player awhile ago and still have not found a place for it! And I see you are selling another one! :-)
Once windows was installed it took a few minutes to install MB, VirtualDrive, and TMT, then about 5 minutes to configure it.
I really like the mediabrowser configurator.
I keep hoping that there will be a plug and point player that has:
- Forced subs in at least MKV format support
- A proper jukebox with TV series and Boxset support
- 3D support
- HD audio codec support
- A decent performing jukebox that can handle at least 1000 individual movie titles
- Eye candy - no WAF without it
The mede8er 600/1000 come so close. The UI performance is excellent compared to at least the a400, and the playback performance is much better. It's the poor jukebox and the lack of forced sub detection that kills the deal. I'd like to try out the Dune or Zappiti players, but the only company that sells them in the US uses FedEx ground, the amount of grief FedEx ground has caused me is another thread entirely.
So I have the 600, maybe someone will buy it, maybe not. Maybe mede8er will find a way to deliver a better jukebox and forced sub support beforehand too
Heck - if that happens I'll buy at least one more.
