This product is sooooo close to satisfying my media center needs! I really hope these remaining capabilities (in order of priority to me) will come soon in future firmware updates:
[REVISED after installing hard line for network (vs WD LiveWire) and configuring custom theme (resolved no initial audio/subtitles window, no folder listing aspect ratio issue, etc.]
A1. [Videos - Audio Track] pass through “DTS-HD Master” audio tracks (not the DTS downmix) with “digital pass through via HTMI”.
A2. [Videos - Audio Track] pass through “PCM 5.1” audio tracks (not the stereo downmix) with “digital pass through via HTMI”.
A3. [Videos - Blu-ray Menus] support Blu-rays like DVD’s - with full menu support. As a temporary solution, at least provide access to the other titles on the disc (versus only the first title which is played).
B1. [Media Library] support consistent, much faster incremental updates.
B2. [Keyboard Access] enable the “text box submit” on the web access page (“http://:80/wdtvlivehub/remote/#”), so the iPad/iPhone can be used as a keyboard by accessing the page.
B3. [Videos - Listing] support re-entering where last left off in folder structure
B4. [Network Shares] for Videos, Music and Photos, allow “Folders” view to begin at a certain folder - not always the root.
C1. [Videos - MKV Support] provide better MKV support like MP4 using embedded artwork and the embedded content title. However, as long as the xml/jpg content design is the only mechanism for this content data, display the content title from the XML file (not the filename) in views (e.g., “Folder” view).
C2. [Videos - Picture Size] provide quick option to display at original size.
D1. [Videos - Content Info] provide mechanism to display disc-related info (disc cover, disc back, disc inserts) as opposed to the source-related info (e.g., general movie info).
D2. [Music - Listing] support “Album Artist” filter/sort
D3. [Videos - Favorites] support organizable links to video segments within bigger titles/chapters
Keep up the awesome work!
