NOTE: All Hard drives must have a unique name for correct functionality with V4 firmware. Connect the Hard Drive to your Windows PC and in My Computer right click the Drive icon and you can give the Hard Drive a name. Remember that each drive must have a unique name example Hard Drive1, Hard Drive2 etc etc

Win7, 8, 8.1 users - Safe Removal is incompatible with the linux NTFS code. Instead use Utility to Eject the Mede8er (or shared external USB drive) - USB Disk Ejector
Vanishing files and un-mountable partitions can occur as  a result of using Safe Removal. Those should get fixed by using slave mode, running chkdsk and removing the player using the USB Disk Ejector tool.

1. Fixed - Extras folder functionality
   a. Invalid video format error
   b. If you play a video file in EXTRAS and then stop it. Now try to play another file it EXTRAS and it will not play
   c. If you have multiple video files in EXTRAS and focus on any video then it normally plays the incorrect one  
   e. If you playing a video file in EXTRAS and press the Info button it shows the 'info' from the Main Movie and not the file that is being played  
2. Added support for Movie Trailer Language - If a trailer exits in the Scrape Language then it will be used.
3.Fixed BD Menu on/off Setup Menu and F3 shortcut button on remote.
4.Fixed Movie JukeBox Navigation bug - In Movie JukeBox focus on any movie and press 'Enter' or 'Info' button and you get the about.jpg. Now use up /down Nav buttons and move to another about.jpg and then press the 'edit Button then press the 'Edit' button on the remote and it shows the incorrect movie in Edit mode.
5. Fixed TV Series return from play focus bug - If you Play a episode and press 'Stop' or 'Return' it then focuses on the incorrect episode thumbnail.
6. Updated image - The image 'IMAGE_BW_THUMB_INVALID_MOVIE_VIEW.png' is incorrect size 117 x 172 and should be should be 154 x 231
7. Added functionality for custom folder lock pin code - ie the custom pin folder will be different from the Master Pin in Setup Menu. This functionality was implemented for a special application and now available to our users.
a. Set Folder Lock to 'on' n Setup Menu
b. Copy/ make file named '.folder.locked' to the folder you want to add the custom pin to - content of the file is not read.
c. Copy/ make file named '.folder.lock.password' to the folder you want to add the custom pin to
d. Edit the file '.folder.lock.password' with Notepad++ and use any 4 digit pin ie '1111' and save
e. When this folder is opened user wil be prompted to enter the 4 digit pin code.
Example file

1.Improved Subtitle border for default #1 and #3 subs on subtitle menu outline/colour option
2. Added Play/Browse functionality on the Movie JukeBox
This is for users who have some extra video files like Extras and Behind the Scenes etc
Make a new folder inside the movie folder and name it 'EXTRAS' and place video files inside this folder. When you play the movie from the about.jpg it will open a dialogue window with options Play the Movie or Browse the EXTRAS folder
Users could also use this for Saga's / Boxsets
3. Updated text string for auto boot to Default JukeBox

1. Fixed Default Application 'JukeBox' when using a custom skin.
2. Added 'Please wait' message when loading Default Application 'JukeBox'
2. Updated French ' Jukebox par défaut'

1. Added Movie or TV Series Poster Image to 'Info' and 'Goto' in Video Play
2. Cleaned up the look of the 'info' and 'Goto' screens
3. Added Watched Indicator icon on about.jpg screen.
4. Fixed Incorrect Movie Poster focus bug when 'Returning' from about.jpg or Movie Play
5. Added new option Setup ---> System --->  Default Application ---> JukeBox  
So now you can set any JukeBox to be the default and on boot it will be auto opened
a. Enable Default Application ----> Setup ---> System --->  Default Application ---> JukeBox
b. Focus on any JukeBox on Favourite Screen and press 'Menu' button
c. Select new option ' Default JukeBox'
X3D will boot to the JukeBox you selected but note that it can only open the Jukebox once the Drive has been mounted or once the Network Share is available. I expect we can try to add a on-screen 'Please wait' message during this period

Please remove your USB fat32 firmware upgrade stick, and reboot, before trying to make  a sata drive jukebox the default.

Note: for YouTube exit on USB Keyboard - Ctrl + ',' = Stop

Tip: Save Config
You can save you config to a USB Stick and restore the configuration once you have installed the new firmware.
Setup --> Misc ---> Save Config

Use a USB Stick that is formatted fat32 in Windows PC. If you have any difficulty we suggest you format the USB stick with the HP Utility -
Download the latest Mede8er Firmware from UnZIP or UnRAR or join with HJ Split and will find one file named install.img. Copy this file to the root directory of a Flash Drive. Plug the flash drive into the Mede8er. Unplug the power to the X3D. Plug the power jack back in and then hold the ON/OFF button on the Mede8er (not the remote) down for 15sec and then release. After the firmware has been checked (+-5-10sec) it will start to update. You will see the update progress on your TV.  Do not remove power during the Firmware Update procedure .
