So far I'm very impressed with the Dune's performance, and have yet to come across a file that won't play. I've got Zappiti running on my laptop and this seems a good match for the Dune, and prefer it to the built-in jukebox from the recent firmware update (which is a nice feature, but I wish I could resize the title icons - just too big for my tastes).
The Dune's 3D support is jaw-dropping and just as good as my standalone Blu-ray box (I absolutely love 3D and would like to join the call for true 3D subtitle support - any more news on this please? [...]
Hi, i now own a Dune hd solo LITE, bought it for 3d support, bd rip playback with menus,and h d audio passthrough to my yamaha htr4063 ,5.1 receiver (avr).
In these respects, i am very pleased also, with thiis dune. (Comparable to the dune hd solo 4k is the areas i want it for).
I am too, a 3d film fan.
I own a samsung 40" 3d tv and a 3d bd player (lg).
I love now being able to play 3d bd isos even with only a truhd audiotrack, which my lg bd player only does from actual optical full bd discs. Dtshdma was okay from bd rips on dlna on the lg bd player.
I think now, febr 2017, the 3d subs issue has been adressed by fw update.
At least on the solo lite november '16 fw.
I ll test that further later this week.
As the full bd menu support is working fine or acceptable on most bd isos i ran, i am pleased.
(Yes, on the solo lite, i will have to pay for the continuation of bdmenu support after the trial period ends... i took that into account when choosing between a solo 4k and the solo lite.)
All in all ,i am well pleased with the Dune hd solo lite.
Ps i can recommend movie bd 3d "doctor strange (2016)" for its brilliant 3d visuals. It had an 'oscar' nomination visual fx this year 2017.
