Olive One - Page 4

post #91 of 109
Hey guys, I've been trying to find some more info about the olive one. I have an Olive 3HD. I know that it uses some weird proprietary file system and that I can't transfer my library from the 3HD to, say, my computer. However, does anyone know if I'll be able to transfer it somehow from the 3HD to the Olive one? Thanks.

There's an import folder where I can drag and drop anything I want to transfer from my PC to the Olive. Then the Olive converts them and stores them automatically.

Thanks Daroosta,
I've pre-ordered Olive One today. I'm planning to add one 256GB low cost SSD within to store my Flac CD collection smile.gif
Hope I will not have to wait too much to be able to play with it wink.gif

Anyone?

It seems like a very important question for current Olive owners. I'm amazed that I emailed olive directly about this a couple of weeks ago and they haven't replied. For the time being, I don't have enough confidence in them to pre-order the olive one, I'm afraid.

Ok they eventually replied and it can be done. They pointed me to some software that allows me to back up my old olive library and then copy it onto the new Olove 1.

I have also been told the olive 1 will be with me in march.

This is from the comments section of their Indigogo page yesterday:

Olive Media Inc.

Hey everybody,

it’s been a long wait and we really appreciate your patience. The good news is that the manufacturing of the Olive ONE is in full swing and we have posted a short update with videos and pictures at https://olivemediainc.zendesk.com (in the NEWS section). With the help of our beta testers (thanks!!!!) we are currently finishing up the software of the Olive ONE and plan to ship orders by end of March.

As always you can check out the progress we make with the software in the Zendesk forum, which we update on a weekly basis. The last software update was just released yesterday.

We have also posted a quick start guide that will be included with your ONE.

More to come soon!

P.S. To our Indiegogo supporters: We will finally send out your order confirmation and you should receive an email by beginning of next week. Please look at the email carefully and make sure the shipping address and other details are correct. Thanks!

I have to say, this thing looks pretty cool. Very tempted to order one but I think I'll wait until people here get theirs and give some impressions.

I am having a hard time with the idea of moving away from my laptop/airplay. All my family knows how to use it already and I like to able to edit my collection without pulling out another device. The beauty of a simple device is appealing however, so devices like the ONE continue to something I investigate.

I need a device that will do multi-artist and multi-genre delimiting with ; or & symbols. Any device that doesn't do this (including sonos and ipad) are still crap for me.

I'm going to wait till they actually have been shipping them for a couple of months to get the kinks out of the hardware and software. Hopefully by Fathers Day smile.gif

Hi,

Sorry for a bit of spammage, but I'm listing my place in line at Indiegogo: http://www.avsforum.com/t/1523629/olive-one-media-streamer

Hope this is ok.

Cheers,

Has anyone gotten their One yet? I am trying to convince the Olive people that I paid the shipping last July. My PayPal receipts seem to be going into oblivion and no human is looking at them or acting upon them

sorry to say this but the olive one is very much in the vapourware category for me now ! gave up waiting and picked a sony hap-s1 instead. does all I want...and atleast the kind of thing could just go in the shop and pickup get it home and get going...
post #106 of 109
I have seen the review of the Sony unit and those same thoughts went through my mind. Sure seems like something that is setting the bar for Olive.

It seems the Olive One is shipping (of course the post was dated April 1, or April Fools Day in the US)

"Hello everyone,

The first batch of products have been assembled, packaged and shipped to our customers. After the many delays we understand that everyone is eager to get their ONE quickly and we are currently optimizing assembly processes to maximize output and ship as many products as quickly as possible.

The actual shipping date of your ONE will depend on the date & time in which we have received your original order. To be fair with everyone we are shipping orders prioritized by order date, so customers that have ordered early in the campaign will get their products first. You will receive an email with a tracking number once your ONE has shipped.

On a side note: We still have quite a few orders with open balances so please get in touch with our accounting department (accounting [at] myoliveone.com) as soon as possible if you have received an invoice that shows an amount due.

Thanks so much for staying loyal to this project for such a long time. We hope you enjoy your ONE and look forward to your feedback.

I keep poking around to see if anyone actually has one yet and can comment on whether or not they like it. I'm cautiously optimistic... but there are a few features that I really hope get implemented, like both analog and digital out at the same time... and volume control for digital outputs (yes, I know that one loses bits, but I'll give that up for some convenience at times.)

I was part of the indiegogo campaign for ONE (2012?), but as soon they closed the campaign, they started changing the tune... They got (500K) double from the initial funding goal, but they dropped all promises of double the HD, etc. Their excuse was "unforseen costs" .
I complained to Indiegogo, they passed the monkey to Olive; To my demise, Indiiegogo changed the content on their campaign microsite (ONE campaign) removing the promise of a double HD, they remove all tracks, unbelievable!!. That was the queue for me, I asked for my money back on the basis that if they can change their mind, so do I. After many iterations, I got my money back from Olive. Based on the comments I am seeing here, I am glad I got it back.
