HDI Dune logo (27 pix)HDi Dune heeft nieuwe bètafirmware uitgebracht voor de HD Base 3.0 en BD Prime 3.0. Deze full-hd-mediaspelers zijn opgebouwd rondom een Sigma Designs 8642-mediaprocessor. De HD Base 3.0 heeft een drivebay waarin een sata-harde schijf van 3,5" of een blu-ray-drive kan worden geplaatst, terwijl de BD Prime over een blu-ray-loader beschikt en intern ruimte heeft voor een 2,5"-harddisk. Meer informatie over deze mediaspelers kan in dit topic op GoT worden gevonden. De nieuwe firmware bevat een groot aantal verbeteringen. Zo starten mediabestanden sneller op, is er een ingebouwde webbrowser en is er ondersteuning toegevoegd voor een dvb-t-dongle, waardoor het mogelijk is om analoge tv-signalen weer te geven. Daarnaast is er ondersteuning toegevoegd voor diverse nieuwe formaten beeld, geluid en ondertiteling en zijn er flink wat bugs verholpen. Het volledige changelog van deze release ziet er als volgt uit:

Changes since "100413_1555:

  • Added support for specific TS files which were previously unsupported (audio-only files, files with certain information missing, etc).
  • Added a new zoom preset for file playback: "fill screen" (convenient for watching 4:3 broadcasts with nonlinear stretching to 16:9).
  • Added a possibility to put link to any folder/file/media resource directly to the main screen.
    • Requirement: system storage should be attached (it is used to store the list of links and the associated icons).
    • Usage instructions: - Select any folder/file/media resource in the file browser, press MENU, choose "Add to main screen" in the popup menu. A new item will be added to the main screen.

  • Added dune_folder.txt feature: support for showing "virtual" items on the screen.
    • The dune_folder.txt in a folder can define a list of virtual items, which are shown in addition to the files/subfolders actually residing in this folder (if any).
    • Syntax ( is the index of the virtual item: 0, 1, 2, ...): - item..caption = ... - item..media_url = ... - item..icon_path = ... (NOTE: HTTP links to images can be used) - item..<...> = ... (any other parameters affecting the look and behavior of the media item)
  • Added support for working with external catalogs of resources ("virtual filesystems") in the file browser.
    • When dune_folder.txt/media_url points to a HTTP URL using "dune_http://..." syntax instead of the normal "http://..." syntax, such a HTTP URL is handled by the player as a "virtual folder", which can be opened and navigated similarly to how local and NFS/SMB folders can be opened/navigated.
    • The "dune_http" HTTP URL should return dune_folder.txt describing the content of the virtual folder using the mechanism of "virtual items".
    • Each virtual item can be either a reference to a particular media resource, or a "dune_http" reference to a nested virtual subfolder.
  • Extended support for VBR MP3 files (added duration detection and seek possibilities).
  • Extended the lists of supported encodings for EXT2/EXT3 and NFS (added all encodings supported in other places).

  • Included the fix for the problem with media playback/reading pausing for several seconds.
  • Improved handling of low-bitrate audio (less than 32Khz) during file playback (some issues fixed).
  • Improved autoframerate: allow to switch to 23.976/24p from interlaced video modes when 24/50/60 autoframerate mode is used).
  • Improved Internet radio playback: implemented more robust handling of HTTP connections.
  • Improved component video output (prefering "SMPTE" standard instead of "M2"; should fix the problems with bad colors when component video output is chosen in Setup).
  • Improved support for output of high quality PCM audio though digital audio outputs (S/PDIF and HDMI):
    • Relaxed software limitations on the sample rate (to the level allowed by the hardware).
    • Introduced a new setting allowing to limit maximum sample rate for compatibility with particular S/PDIF cables and A/V receivers.
    • NOTE: For compatibility with all S/PDIF cables and A/V receivers, the limit is set to 48 Khz by default.

dvb-t-dongle, waardoor het mogelijk is om analoge tv-signalen
Dat klopt dus niet. dvb-t is fewoon digitaal. Alleen komt het via de ether binnen en niet via de kabel of de sateliet.
Hij bedoelt waarschijnlijk de kwaliteit van de stream. Boven analoog komt deze nou niet bepaald uit :Y)
En toch zou het stoer zijn als ze ook nog eens zo'n apparaat als dit uitbrengen, maar dan met plug-in tuners voor TV (bv. DVB-C of DVB-T) :-)
Nu heb ik niet zo'n verstand, maar volgens mij heeft HDI pas een plugin DVB-T tuner uitgebracht voor de Dune? (Zie ook deze changelog)

Of zie ik het helemaal verkeerd? :?
Dat is een UBS DVB-T adapter met en losse antenne. Het werkt in nederland ook, echter kan je alleen de free to air kanalen ontvangen.

Ik ga de update nu installeren, eens kijken hoe de functionaliteit is...

Hmmm, FTA is niet zo'n probleem :). Ik wist uberhaupt niet dat er zoiets was :D. Alleen hopen dat er dan uiteindelijk ook nog eens iets met DVB-C komt (dit met Glasvezel met dvb-c streams in het vooruitzicht :D ).

Ik zie wel staan dat deze apparaten IPTV streams ondersteunen. Ik vroeg me af of ze die ook ge-timed kunnen opnemen of live timeshiften bv.? :)
Is er een mooi klein usb toetsen bordje hiervoor?
Vast wel. Elk klein USB toetsenbordje doet het wel geloof ik ;-)
Ik kan bevestigenen dat een Logitech Cordless desktop gewoon werkt, USB ontvanger in de Dune, daarna de internet browser opstarten en het werkt, zowel toetsenboad als muis....
Geen video output reinitialization meer nodig, heerlijk! Nu alleen nog een klein beetje leuke OSD in plaats van de simpele 'info'-knop en ik ben meer dan tevreden ;).
Hey, ik heb via Google gezocht maar kom steeds hier uit :D

Ik heb een Dune Prime en wil de FW updaten.

Heb de procudere gevolgd: FW (in zip) uitpakken naar usb stick, in de Dune steken, opstarten en dan betreffende file kiezen.
Dan zou er iets moeten gebeuren(?)

Hier niks! Andere bestanden op de stick doen het wel (avi) alleen firmware updaten niet.
Heb andere poort geprobeerd, andere USB stick, andere FW (nieuwere beta) en zelfs een andere PC.

Ook heb ik de bestandsnaam ingekort (MS-DOS) gedachte, helpt niks.

Mijn huidige FW is de officile van april 2010 091023_1444_update1
Ik heb ergens gelezen dat je NIET het zip bestand moet gebruiken, vraag me niet waarvoor. Je kan op de site van Dune kennelijk ook het .dff file downloaden.

Op dit item kan niet meer gereageerd worden.
