BTW - This is my first post in a couple or several years. Stopping by to see whats-up in the media streamer world.

This made me laugh! Here is why... Going back 12 years (and until today?) all media players had a few things in common.
* Overly hyped by manufacturer at product announcement & at launch.
* Product launches with a broken advertised feature and one glitch, and two bugs.
* Future firmware will fix these problems. Stand-by for more info.
* Any manufacturer with developer teams that rolled out fixes, and improved firmware, ended up winning. But the launch always takes a beating and gets a group of disappointed people when "that feature" they waited for is broken or buggy.
One of these companies should try a different marketing approach. Advertise your upcoming new media streamer will launch despite a few bugs, to include limitations that prevent it from simultaneous output of audio & video. Then have initial reviewers find it near flawless, and also find a new feature never seen before. Then, manufacturer can roll-out new advertising campaign (for this item) named "Gotcha" or "Whoops, we were wrong". The company is forced to a press-release apologizing that they failed to deliver the bugs they thought would be included.
