It takes like 10 minutes... imagine if I have to do that to 100 MKV... do you understand?
WD advertise that the player can read 1080p files with DTS passthrough and subs... well it doesnt!!!
This is a HD media player that can not read properly 1080p movies with DTS and external subs... sounds basic doesnt it?
I know that WD will adresse this issues and I'm happy with the player... but dont you guys be like fanboys and excuse everything that is wrong just because you like the player!
Those are basic bugs that should be resolved ages ago...
I know that WD is going to improve the player... I just ask them not to take 4 months to release a new firmware.
But I will explaine why a lot of people are getting nervous:
Here in Portugal we pay 100 to 120€ for the WD TV. In the middle of this month Egreat is going to release a new Player Egreat M34A that costs 155€... so this Egreat player is a bit more expensive but it has Popcorn firmware that is much but much more compatible with lots of codecs, much more stable, Autodetect Framerate, it has portuguese in the Menus, it has net, it has HDMI 1.3, will do DTS Downmix, it comes with HDMI cable (so take 10€ from the 155€ of the player), RSS feed, Peer-to-peer TV : SayaTV, Internet Radio : Shoutcast, and much more... so with more 45 to 25€ you get all this... in the other hand you have the WD TV that has those problems that everyone described but overall is a realy nice player as well... so dont tell me that the player can have some bugs because is cheap!! No... side by side with Egreat M34A the WD TV is not that cheap!!!
The question i leave here is this... Egreat sells 1/10 players that WD does.. it will come with Ethernet connection, ESATA connnection and will do DTS Downmix... and you guys think that WD can not pay the DTS license? Hmmm... i don't think so...
Dont take me wrong... I'm not saying that I will sell my WD TV or stuff... I'm just complaining like a costumer... nothing less!
