Re: Favourites, Shortcuts and Skipping
the Playons are great devices, but it really is a good idea to do some research before buying. Good call
As far as your requirements, i'll try and answer objectively and from my own experiences.
- Skipping. The way you want it to be can easily be done. It has a go-to function (which i don't like).
I personally prefer a 'search bar' like a pc's media player. Unfortunately, they trow this feature out with every new firmware release. Hoping it will return in next releases.
- Shortcuts (or the WAF - Wife acceptance factor). I'll be honoust: not very well implemented. I am a 'techie' so it's not the most important thing for me, but as of now (first release of the new GUI 2.0) shortcuts are really really longcuts, Which means you have to click at least 8 to ten times before you get to the right spot on your network. Doable, but don't expect fast acces (yet). Due to large amounts of user requests i think that ac ryan will implement it in coming firmware releases (women rule the world, after all
In conclusion, the playons wil lplay most anything that you throw at it and have very good video output (which made it my choice of player
Well, hope this helps and good luck choosing.
