No computer needed, just an antenna and a hard disk.

Thank You

Both the M4100SH and T410 tuner is expected to arrive in the same shipment, but we generally ask if a customer wants partial shipment when a peripheral is delayed. So far, DVICO is on schedule, we'll know more when we reach the deadline.

Is there any outlook on the T430 Tuner?
post #244 of 2858
Sorry, the T430 is a European model and we won't be carrying it, but I'm sure that DVICO's European retailer will offer it at about the same time.

Kei,

Thanks for the update. I look forward to finally being able to playback h.264 ts's without a pc. If the units works as well as the 5000, I'll be recommending it to all the guys at abhdtv.net.

BTW-You keep changing your picture.

does the 4100 support usb wifi adapters?, I saw the 4000 supports a few now after the latest firmware update--

The setup networking menu indicates a WiFi option, yes.

Another change of photo this time by request of a member, who did not like my companion in that picture.

Does this unit automaticly plays back in the right refresh rate when selecting a file ?
So a PAL title in 50 Hz and a NTSC in 60 Hz ?

That would be a great feature.
post #250 of 2858
It has an "Auto NTSC/PAL" on/off setting, just as do the 4/5000 models. I don't have PAL test clips to see how that works, but perhaps someone from our Scandinavian contingent can comment on that feature of the first-generation units. Likely, the new unit is as good or better at it, so unless there is an issue with the 4/5000 switching I'm not going to spend time digging up and downloading PAL samples.
post #251 of 2858
Good news. I though i saw somewhere that it played a 1080p24 files as well.
I should possibly change my question to:

Does it output a file in the native resolution.

So:
720p60 file in 1280x720 60 Hz progressive
1080i60 file in 1920x1080 60 Hz interlaced
1080i50 file in 1920x1080 50 Hz interlaced
etc

I have that now in the mediaplayer in my PMS 3800 scaler, and that is very nice to have. That unit has rules you can setup what to do with which signal. That would a bit much to ask perhaps, but outputting files in native mode would be great.
post #252 of 2858
I have never had any problems playing back any PAL DVD's on my HDTV using the 5000.
Last one I watched was "Raise The Titanic" by Clive Cussler.

Some posters here are soo critical! Its none of their business. (However i do understand you represent a company who does probably sizeable business generated from these forums)

The short answer is "no", no native mode. See my post of yesterday for a description of the output options. Aside from auto switching between 50 and 60 Hz, you (or Auto EDID) choose an output resolution and the TViX' scaler then provides that.

(Thanks, qz, for the confirmation of PAL switching)

@ TPeterson,

Could you please test the clip in the following link . It's AVCHD which should be supported by the 4100.

Thank you for the feedback.

Regards

Ok, no problem as i prefer 60 hz based material. The 50 Hz versions we get here in Europe are speedup, and that is not good.

Yes, it plays. It's only 12 Mbps, so not much of a stress test, but TViX even recognized the new-to-me extension "m2ts" as a video.

Thank you very much TPeterson. Indeed only 12Mbps but highly compressed using h.264 codec with DD5.1 sound. Most PC's under Core2D struggle with that clip.

If you need a 25Mbps clip, try this one.

I agree with that statement. My dual P4 2.8 with 4 gig of ram struggled with it. The video card may have played a part as it is only a ATI FireGL 128, which is not the most powerful of video cards and I was running 4 VMs. But I was suprised the trouble it had playing the clip on my work machine. When I get home I will try it on my home box, a Core2D with fast hard drives and a nice video card. Interested to see the differance.
post #260 of 2858
Yes, I see what you mean. Both MPC and Nero Showtime have some difficulties with that 12 Mbps H.264 clip, but the M4100 plays it well. The 25 Mbps 1440x1080i MPEG-2 clip, however, appears to have some coding errors, as it appears to play well, but with precisely the same macroblocking in the lower-lefthand corner on MPC, Nero, and M4100...?

Yes, noticed that too . But main thing is that these clips are recognized AND decoded by the M4100. Great !!
Were they tested over network or internal HDD? Either way I'm getting one

Cheers

Both, with same results.

Kei,

How can I order a second remote control for the 4100?
I did not see it listed on dc's website anywhere.

Lets hope the container ship has already docked in California and they have offloaded the containers and the pallets are on their way by truck to digitalconnection's warehouse.

If you have "NTSC/PAL Auto Switch" set to Auto on the 4000/5000, it does this for all files except DVD ISOs. For DVD ISOs, it will output whatever signal is listed under "TV Standard" set to NTSC.

For example, if I have "TV Standard" set to NTSC and "NTSC/PAL Auto Switch" set to Auto, a NTSC signal gets outputted when I play a PAL DVD ISO. If it was working correctly, it would output a PAL signal.

I wonder if the 4100/5100 fixes this problem with DVD ISOs?

Hello..

I have the snazzio 1350 at the moment, but was thinking of getting the 4100sh...

Question is:

I feel the sound and video quality of the snazzio (using dvi), was very awesome (colours, detail).. How does TVIX products expecially this one, do in those acpects??

As for the VC-1/h264, do you feel this player will play most of these files as seen on the web?? or from a HD-dvd backup I may make to protect my purchase...

Thanx..

Can someone direct me to:

1) Differences between the 4100 and 5100 units.

2) Images of the UI.

Thanks

This might be not the help you are after, but I think this thread contains links to pictures, differences between the units as well as link to the manual (I think even someone posted some GUI pictures somewhere).
So do a search in this or the 4/500 threads. They should be there...

Good luck.

For HDMI/DVI, the whole list is un-grayed: Auto EDID, 480i/576i, 480p/576p, 720p, 1080i, and 1080p. For Composite/S-Vid all except 480i/576i are grayed. For Component, Auto EDID is grayed. That suggests to me that the SD interlaced outputs are indeed available on the HDMI port. But all that I can confirm with my present display is that the HDMI output is indeed 480p/576p on that setting (depending on whether I select NTSC or PAL as the "TV standard") and something else when I select 480i/576i.

Thank you for the feedback.

If what you describes is the case, it do look very promising!
May I suggest that you borrow a scaler from digitalconnection and try it out
(just had to mention it...hehe)

Are you saying that Auto EDID will select resolution based on what is played (480/720/1080)?
(or am I just reading what I want to hear...?)

It would be a great feature though if it could be implemented, as it is a little hassle changing output resolution based on what you are playing.
The same thing with DVD ISO/IFO playback wrt 50/60Hz.

The EVA8000 got a problem with non dts/ac3 multichannel audio.
If the video contains aac multichannel audio (nero digital at higher profiles) the audio is only output in stereo (2channel).
As I understand it some kind of recoding of the aac-multichannel audio would have to be done to be able to send it through the digital audio out as dts/ac3.

Could you please check if the tvix device got the same problem ?

Demo videos should be avaible here:
www.nero.com/nerodigital/eng/index.html

Next thing is: I'd like to keep 2 audio streams (english and german) - is it possible to switch between them (divx/xvid mpeg4, nero digital) ?
What about subtitles-support ?
