Do those Dune developers know what they are doing? Obviously not...
We are testing first beta firmware with Netflix 5.1 feature. The aim is to collect more cases to evaluate. For me 5.1 from Netflix works fine. No problems. Also at Dune Ultra 4K. But you shall check it at preinstalled version of the app, do not try Netflix app from Google Play etc. And if you have issues with starting the app after firmware upgrade, factory reset of the player is recomended.
After factory reset some Google/Android services are not enabled in the player. When you enter Google Play Store, Dune activates them but Some of them cause lot of backgroud activity inside the Android system. Thats why it is not enabled by default. Quality and perofmance of some applications can be affected by those background tasks.
So all your observations have value for Dune, help to improve and release fixes for next (official?) versions.
Please share your observations with Dune, send email to their support, describe your configuration, how you connect the player to your AV stuff etc.
So yes, Dune developers know what they are doing. They release new feature in beta firmware, to allow us to test it widely, and to gather feedback to improve product quality via next versions.
So also, if you have problems with some UHD BD menu support for some images - Dune will be thankfull for details.
