Re: [BETA] PV73100 r4318 firmware **POHD**
First of all, I'm new to the community so I hope I post this in the correct section.
Bought my PlayonHD ("+" version) about a week ago. It came with the 4318 firmware pre-installed out of the box.
Bought it without HDD, installed my own Samsung HD103SJ harddisk.
Works kind of OK, but I have some bugs which I'd like to report. Perhaps they've already been reported, if so I apologize for double-posting. If not, you might want to know about them...
* When connecting the PoHD to my Windows 7 PC via USB, I can transfer files at an acceptable speed.
However, sometimes the transfer just hangs and the only solution is to disconnect the USB cable and power cycling the PoHD. This happens on a very regular basis and is kind of annoying.
Copying files from my PC to a USB harddisk works perfectly, so I assume the problems are PoHD related.
* Sometimes non-HD video plays stuttering, both via HDMI and via Composite. Happens with several DVD rips which playback fine on PC or regular dvd player (when burned to DVDR). It is a constant stutter every two or three seconds, during the whole movie. Very annoying.
* OSD: When pressing INFO button twice during playback of a video file, "Audio:" shows video info and "Video:" shows audio info.
* OSD contains several faulty hints, e.g. when copying files from USB to HDD it gives you wrong hints on how to start copying (iirc it says press "select", but you need to press "arrow right" to start copying).
Hope this info will help you guys to improve the device.
IMO it already is a great device, but still needs some serious work to get it working as it should.
