HDI Dune logo (27 pix)HDi Dune heeft nieuwe bètafirmware uitgebracht voor diverse van zijn mediaspelers, zoals de Base 3.0, de Prime 3.0, de Max en de Smart. Deze full-hd-mediaspelers zijn opgebouwd rondom een Sigma Designs 8642-mediaprocessor. De Dune-mediaspelers kenmerken zich door een groot gebruiksgemak en uitgebreide mogelijkheden. Meer informatie over deze mediaspelers kan in dit topic op GoT worden gevonden.

De ontwikkelaars bij HDi Dune hebben in de afgelopen tweeënhalve maand niet stilgezeten. Zo is de gebruikersinterface onder handen genomen en kan nu uit diverse thema's gekozen worden. We treffen ondersteuning voor cue-sheets en hoofdstukken in mkv-bestanden aan. Er is een nieuwe dvd-engine met ondersteuning voor multi-angle en voorkeursinstellingen voor de taal van het menu, geluid en ondertiteling. Ten slotte zijn er ook diverse verbeteringen aangebracht en in een groot aantal onderdelen van de mediaspeler zijn bugfixes doorgevoerd.

Completely new graphical interface.
  • New background image, new icons, more advanced graphics for all GUI elements (glasses, dialogs, controls, OSD, etc).
  • Animation effects.
    • NOTE: it is recomended to use 50/60Hz video mode as the default video mode in order to ensure smooth animation.
    • NOTE: animation effects can be disabled in Setup / Appearance.
  • Improved text look.
    • The space between characters and the width of whitespace character optimized.
  • Ability to create and install custom GUI skins.
    • More information:
  • Ability to switch GUI skins on-the-fly.
    • GUI skins can be switched via the setting "Setup / Appearance / Skin", or via "B" RC button on the main screen (and also via "ZOOM" RC button on any screen).
    • Several GUI skins are included into the firmware.
New tab-based main menu interface.
  • All items from the main menu are now grouped into the following top-level folders:
    • "Sources": locally attached storage devices, configured network folders, and "Network Browser" function.
    • "TV": TV services (when available).
    • "Favorites": shortcuts to favorite items (previously known as "items added to main screen").
    • "Applications": all other applications and services.
    • "Setup": player settings.
  • By default, all top-level folders are now represented as "tabs" at the top of the screen.
    • In Setup / Appearance, the user can switch between the following styles of the main menu:
      • "Tabs": the new default menu style ("tabs" at the top of the screen).
      • "Fodlers": show all top-level folders as regular folders in the main area.
      • "Plain": do not group main screen items into folders (the same behavior as in previous firmware versions).
Added widget for showing weather and current date/time information.
  • The widget is shown at the top right corner of the screen (in the main menu only, not during playback).
  • The widget can be configured or disabled via "Setup / Applications / Widget".
  • NOTE: When no information is available (e.g. when Internet connection is not available), the widget shows Dune HD logo.
Various other user interface improvements.
  • Added more predefined icon-based view modes for folders: 3x2, 3x3, 4x2, view modes with right panel.
    • "Extended list" view mode is renamed to "List with right panel".
  • Added the ability to quickly switch between view modes by pressing "A" RC button.
    • Debug dump function (which was previously available via triple press of "A" RC button) is now available via tripple press of "PAUSE" RC button.
  • "Add to favorites" function can be quickly called by "D" RC button.
  • "Copy" and "Paste" functions can be quickly called by "B" and "C" RC buttons.
  • The help line at the bottom of the screen indicates currently available shortcut RC buttons ("A", "B", "C", "D", "POP UP") and their functions.
  • When launching the playback, "ENTER" RC button now works as "PLAY" by default, i.e. builds a playlist consisting of all items in the current folder and starts the playback of the currently selected item. Usually, this improves the conveniency when the folder contains multiple items (e.g. photos, music files, series, links to Internet radio stations, links to TV channels, etc). The old behavior (do not build the playlist, play just the selected item) can be restored via settings (see "Setup / Advanced / File Browser").
  • The current folder path at the top of the screen is now always shown as just single line (with scrolling when the path is too long).
  • Bugfix: "TOP MENU" RC button did not work in some Setup screens.
Added support for CUE-sheet playlist files.
  • When playing an audio file, is there is an associated CUE-sheet file (should have the same filename as the audio file, but with ".cue" extension), the CUE-sheet file is automatically used.
  • "PREV"/"NEXT" RC buttons allow to switch between tracks.
  • The OSD menu ("POP UP MENU" RC button) allows to see the list of tracks and switch to the desired track.
  • When the playlist contains multiple audio files, CUE-sheet files are also detected and used for each audio file (the detection is performed when an audio file starts to play for the first time). The OSD menu groups all tracks by the corresponding files.
  • Also added support for built-in CUE-sheets in FLAC, APE and WavPack files.
Added support for chapters in MKV files.
  • "PREV"/"NEXT" RC buttons allow to switch between chapters.
  • The OSD menu ("POP UP MENU" RC button) allows to see the list of chapters and switch to the desired chapter.
  • When the playlist contains multiple MKV files, chapters are also detected and used for each MKV file (the detection is performed when a MKV file starts to play for the first time). The OSD menu groups all chapters by the corresponding files.
New version of DVD engine.
  • The new version of the DVD engine adds the support for multiangle feature and improves the support for DVD-Video discs with advanced DVD-menu and interactive features.
  • If needed, the old version of the DVD engine may be chosen via Setup / Miscellaneous / System / DVD engine.
Added settings for preferred languages of disc menu, audio track, subtitles.
  • See "Setup / Playback / Language".
  • Supported for BD/DVD-Video discs/images and files.
  • NOTE: The default value of these language settings is "English". So, if there are several audio or subtitles tracks and the "English" one is not the first one, it will be automatically chosen (instead of choosing the first track, as it took place previously).
  • Also added a new setting (see "Setup / Playback / Subtitles") which allows to enable subtitles by default not only for files, but also for DVD-Video discs/images.
Various playback improvements.
  • General improvements for playback of HTTP audio streams (such as Internet radio stations).
  • CD audio playback improvements: faster startup and gapless playback.
  • Improvement: for autoframerate function, non-standard framerates between 23.976Hz and 24Hz are now treated as 23.976Hz (rather than 24hz).
  • Bugfix: Viewing photos from a UPnP source did not work (the problem introduced in previous firmware versions).
  • Bugfix: Unsupported REW (fast rewind) command for TS files was wrongly handled as fast forward rather than ignored.
  • Bugfix: Playlist shuffle function could use an already previously used random sequence in some cases.
  • Bugfix: MP3 files with very large embedded covers could not be played.
  • Bugfix: MP3 files with specific ID3 tags could not be played.
  • Bugfix: ".mts" files were wrongly handled as audio files.
  • Bugfix: Pausing M4A files could cause playback stop in some cases.
  • Bugfix: .M3U/.PLS playlist files with "UTF8 BOM" header could not be played.
  • Bugfix: specific TS files (such as specific broadcast recordings) could be played wrongly or with pause/seek not working.
  • Bugfix: specific MKV files could not be played.
Improved handling of RC buttons during playback.
  • "PREV" RC button now navigates through the history of the previously played playlist items only in the shuffle playback mode and only after normal transitions (selecting an item in the playlist and manually jumping to it resets the history).
  • "TOP MENU" RC button now allows to go to the main screen also from file playback mode.
Added new audio output configuration possibilites.
  • The setting "Setup / Audio / Audio decoding mode" allows to specify the number of channels (stereo, 5.1, 7.1), which should be output to analog audio outputs and HDMI output.
Improved output of DTS-CD audio streams.
  • Removed 14-bit to 16-bit conversion, which is undesired in some cases.
  • Added the new setting "Setup / Audio / DTS CD audio conversion", which allows to revert back the old behavior (enable 14-bit to 16-bit conversion) when needed.
DVB-T related improvements.
  • Usability improvement: when watching DVB-T channels, "ENTER" RC button opens the list of DVB-T channels (as "POP UP MENU" RC button).

Improved handling of remote controls and IR signals.
  • All IR codes expect codes from Dune HD remotes should be ignored now in all cases (so, pressing any button on 3-party remote control should not interrupt the screensaver) (except when 3-party remotes use the same the same IR codes as Dune HD remotes).
  • Added a Setup option to disable the compatibility with old kinds of Dune HD remotes (Setup / Miscellaneous / Advanced / Old remote support). (May be helpful if some 3-party remotes use the same IR codes as old kinds of Dune HD remotes).

Zie erg goed uit en bij mij lijkt alles goed te werken.
FOTO's kijken doet het nu eindelijk. Nooit begrepen wat er nou zo moeilijk aan was om dat werkend te krijgen. Nu gewoon bladeren met de pijltjes naar links rechts etc. En shuffle automatisch.
Kan alleen niet vinden of en hoe je een shuffle uit doen op alle pics (ipv de pic in een specifieke folder)

Enige probleem dat ik na de vorige final heb en nu nog steeds is dat er af en toe bij switchen van audio kanalen rare dingen optreden:
- soms gaat bij overgang van bv stereo dvd menu naar multi channel film het geluid compleet over naar harde ruis.
- geluid valt uit tussen bv afleveringen op een dvd
bij stop en weer play werkt het geluid daarna weer.
Meer mensen die dit hebben?
Prima apparaat en voor wat meer geld krijg je ook een top product.
Die werken er tenminste aan de firmware niet zoals die prutsers van AC-Ryan :(
Daar zijn de prijzen dan ook naar, je kan niet voor een dubbeltje op de eerste rang zitten!
Of popcornhour ;-) ook van die prutsers -.-
nutteloze reactie , Firmware updates bij Popcorn producten zijn er gewoon en meeste producten krijgen nog steeds een update.
Daarom heb ik ook mijn AC-Ryan PlayonHD na 6 dagen verkocht en een Dune Smart D1 gekocht.
Ga snel updaten.. de lijst ziet er al goed uit. Alweer!
