Does anyone know if this player will respect forced pgs subs in mkv files with the subtitles option set to off?
until someone gets an actual unit we don't really know squat about it! :)

On the 3D BD-ISO front, the following are musts:
  1. Ability to select which playlist to play. Crucial for titles like 'Cars 2' 3D in which the Spanish credits playlist is largest/longest and plays by default in 1186 players I've tried, and titles like 'Grand Canyon (IMAX)' 3D in which the largest/longest playlist is the making-of, not the main feature. HiMedia and Micca players have fixed this via playlist select using BD-lite option.
  2. Ability to invert synch. Crucial for titles like 'Rio' 3D, 'Drive Angry' 3D and others which are right-eye first, not the usual left-eye first 3D BDs. HiMedia and Micca players have fixed this via 'Menu' button pop-up options.
  3. Proper 23.976 for 3D film-based BDs, which is most of them. HiMedia and Micca players have NOT fixed this; it's still 24.000 for 23.976 material.
  4. Support for forced subs. Crucial in 'Avatar' 3D for those of us who don't understand native Na'vi
    . HiMedia and Micca players have NOT fixed this. Maybe this is a Realtek issue as I don't see forced subs supported in any 1185 and 1186 players to date.

That's reasonable. Your note on the website says "Starting at ~$220". Does "starting" mean models with/without wi-fi, HDD, etc.? And, when can we pre-order, or will you only offer when stock comes in? Thanks.

anyone else concerned that since this thing has an imminent release date that all of the issues with this chip have NOT been resolved?

I swore I read somewhere It had a custom self built firmware but I for the life of me cant find it anymore. If they are making a complete firmware and no longer using realtek turnkey it could mean fixed but also could mean lots of other things are broke, Might have to wait to see on this unit.

Damian commented that it's the non-Android firmware for this player that Mede8er could customize.


Via hdlandforum (French) , some initial impressions were posted:
Quote:
- The menus are much nicer than before. It's a good point.

- BD Lite mode does not work well and generates bugs in particular network. When disabled, all falls into place.

- The Auto framerate not working well. The 23.976 Hz is well managed but the DVD NTSC saccadent.

- The network works fine, including the 3D BS ISO.

- The remote is not bad but some times, the buttons are pressed. Additional Power button located on the left side can not activate accident ... Not glop! For cons, the shot of backlit keys, too cool!

- Web applications work quite well and are pretty fast including Internet browser.

- The box is quite heavy. It smells seriously.

- Access times are extremely short on including BD ISO. Resume playback works well on all files.

- The subtitles are displayed well and cleanly.

- The DVD upscaling works particularly well, including on NTSC DVD.

- The placement system of internal hard drive is original and practical.

- The connection is ultra complete.


Overall it's a good machine but the firmware is not yet finalized. But there is still one month to Mede8er to improve the firmware before the release.

Above is via Google Translate. Good to hear 23.976 "well managed", but author doesn't say whether it's fine for 2D and 3D film-based material. BD-lite bugs are concerning as it would be needed for playlist select for 2D and 3D BD-ISO's. Hopefully, Mede8er is actively looking here (or will be) and at other forums in order to release updated firmwares quickly.

more news about the new mede8er and the realtek with autoframe. This is from the first test done by Christophe from HDLand and posted on HCFR (google translate) :

Hello everyone!


Good news! Button on the left side is actually a programmable button So it's all good!

The bad news of the day is that Realtek chips do not support Auto Framerate completely. In fact, the Auto Framerate can switch from 23.976 Hz to the defined default is 50 or 59.94 Hz (60 Hz). So for example if you set the drive at 50 Hz, NTSC files will not be fluid, even by activating the Auto Framerate.

I will receive sample files for the Jukebox.


Regarding the Internet browser, there is a real Web browser (browser) and more web applications like YouTube XL. By default it is not too useful but with the optional keyboard with integrated trackball should do it!


Christophe

Autoframe isn't "well managed", as Christophe posted previously in your quote :


- The Auto framerate not working well. The 23.976 Hz is well managed but the DVD NTSC saccadent.


"saccadent" means "stutter"...

Anything more than 149 USD, including taxes and shipping is pricey.

I do not agree with you. Mede8er provides more than Micca in terms of having a better UI, support, and movie and music jukeboxes. However, I do agree that paying $220 + shipping for a media player that has the same stuttering issues as the Micca EP950 / 600 isn't appealing! I hope Mede8er / Realtek find a solution for this issue.

Agree with you Gus. Looks like shipping is free, but I don't mind paying ~$220 if the MED1000X3D works well. I know Mede8er will get the UI and jukebox right, so my concern is them at least having the features/functionality for 3D BD-ISO's that HiMedia/Micca have added (playlist select, synch invert, etc.).

All we can do is wait and see what happens when someone gets a unit for testing.

Got direct reply from Mede8er with regards to 3D. Sounds very promising. I'll be ordering a unit to test as soon as MediaConceptUSA gets them in. Got my 450X2 from them; great service. Time to finally eBay off my HiMedia HD900B.


Ability to select which playlist to play. Crucial for titles like 'Cars 2' 3D in which the Spanish credits playlist is largest/longest and plays by default in 1186 players I've tried, and titles like 'Grand Canyon (IMAX)' 3D in which the largest/longest playlist is the making-of, not the main feature.

Currently X2 Plays the correct Playlist using 'Cars 2' 3DISO so it seems fine. We are currently writing a Playlist navigator for X3 and expect it to be completed in about 1 week just in-case users encounter this on other titles.

Ability to invert synch. Crucial for titles like 'Rio' 3D, 'Drive Angry' 3D and others which are right-eye first, not the usual left-eye first 3D BDs. HiMedia and Micca players have fixed this via 'Menu' button pop-up options.

Cannot answer this as we dont have equipment to read if it correct or not. I have read a pre test conducted by HD Land on one of the French forums that positively talks about this point.

The SDK does not support forced subs and I will ask our engineers to see if we can do something to support them.

so, the real answer to the 23.976 question is "no"...

very disappointing as I was hoping to try one of these out. I will let Brajesh and a few others be the guinea pigs on this one. Hopefully, with he good support mede8er seems to have, a fix will be forthcoming...

Hard to say. Auto framerate not working well, but 23.976 is "well managed", whatever that means. We'll find out over next few weeks.
