I am playing 1080p content off an USB 1TB HDD and the 720p content works fine, but 1080p content stutters when the scene becomes complex (like snow, rain or fast movement). I checked and the HDD is not saturated, it clearly has breathing room. Is that “normal” dissability? If so, the unit should not be shipped with 1080p support as advertised.
Another thing I noticed is that when a file is reached which is broken in some way, the unit will not play it, but will remain in some weird state, where everything is slow and all other content becomes unplayable as well. The fix is to reset the settings back to factory defaults, but what I cant figure out is why doesnt simple power down/up or reset fix the problem. Factory reset seems like an overkill.
I found the answer about VIDEO_TS requirement to playback DVD’s in this forums. What about subtitles and various audio tracks. Is there a way to have them available?
I was pleasently surprised that HDMI was automatically detected and disappointed that Windows shares are not recognized. It appears that only NFS (Unix style) is available. I tried UPnP features but only a handfull of videos is recognized by Windows Media Player. Can that be improved?
