I am learning quickly…although a great device in a number of ways…there are glaring omissions or dare I say some ‘grey’ features present in the hub. You know…listed on the box, but in practice does not function as generally expected by the community.
I offer the following as the start of a list of potential shortcomings experienced during my pilgrimage to making the hub just that…my go to device that everyone can use.
Movie Meta Data scrubbing and handling of genre / movie information - Symptom: Only displays text from xml file…does take it in as a variable that can be searched properly. Have to individually download meta data for each movie.
GB Ethernet Connection speed - Generally accepted max of around 10MB/s based on limitations of the chipseet. Definately not ‘normally’ accepted GBit performance.
Rating System - Star ratings are randomly lost for good. So what’s the point?
Youtube - We have all seen the message that this video will not play on this device.
Now don’t get me wrong…there is more I like about the box sitting in front of the device that I dislike, but when I pickup the remote and start using the device for content stored on the unit…I feel like it’s an epic fail. Anyone else discovered some ‘grey’ features we should be aware of?
