Speaking of which, if you could give me a little info on how to use the web browser, I'd be really grateful for that too. I am planning to use the player to watch youtube sometimes, and I guess I will have to do that on the browser, as there isn't a Youtube app installed, and it doesn't seem like there is one I can install.
Re. the browser, should one get a wireless computer mouse and keyboard (using a USB dongle thing) to use it kinda like a regular PC browser? I can't at the moment figure out how to enter a new url or actually use it to browse the internet, it loads up the Dune homepage by default, which loads up and runs fine.
Sorry if my question is noobish, I lack the knowledge I guess! And sorry for the double post above, I'm staying in a place right now that has occasional internet connection problems!
Hi Michal Talion,
Good to hear that i helped you choose and that the player suits you. I think it is a great media player. But it has some quirks and the user manual is at times unhelpful and does not explain a lot of button functions on the remote. I had to find out myself.
1. The internet browser is a Pain in the Backside! I almost never use it. The STOP button on the RC stops (exits) the browser, but navigating/browsing is a nightmare. ; The video fast forward and fast reverse buttons switch between earlier entered urls.
2. Youtube - YES there IS a youtube app downloadable on this DuneHD. You first in the main apps icons bar have to go to applications, then choose 'Video' and look for Youtube. Install it and from then it will reside in teh Applications icon/menu. The app is a modified youtube app. But it works.
And yes, getting a usb keyboard and mouse on the Dune helps, i guess....
3. The + P - vertical button on remote also quickly scrolls thru list , for instance, if you have a lot of networked shared folders in main list, you can quickly scroll down thru it. or if you have a lot of shared movies, tvseries titles etc in a shared networked folder, also quickly scroll wirth P + or - buttons.
Some other buttons have more functions too. just press all buttons consecutively in different functions to find out. the coloured buttons (4) have some extra functions too. Some are listed onscreen. If you see a red A on bottom of the screen listed, with a function, thats the red button on the remote etc. But sometimes the coulored buttons do unlisted actions.
Took me a while to figure out all RC button functions. Trial and error!
Google is also your friend here as some forums answer some questions on the DuneHD Solo Lite.
Hope this helps you onward.
If i can be of any more assistance, please send me a forum message or post. I have email notification on the dune solo forum thread.
I ll be glad to help out further.
