Customer Feedback & Reviews / Re: What happened to Mede8er?

I now have my android box dual booting with Coreelec.   That is very fast....and its Kodi can run autorefresh and supports DTS-MA and true-HD.
Coreelec specialise in hardware drivers for amlogic arm hardware. in this  case the G31 Mali GPU.

General Discussion / Re: SATA 5TB / 6 TB compatibility with X3D Series

Good question! I don't now why nobody has provided an answer?
There is probably a reason why it cannot be done but I can't think what that may be. :(

I have an old X500 that i have been using for a few years i got a 10 port USB hub and connected it to my X500, then no knowing any better i proceeded to connect 10 portable Hdd ranging in size from 2TB-4TB . It's working. although i only put movies in mine but i use it everyday.hehehe

I like to  try and get new things working.  In that way I can say...don't bother...its a pain compared to an X3D.
Android devices where not next generation media players. They where next generation Home Theater PC's, with all the messing that goes with them.

See the Mede8er in action / Re: Do you plan to make a 4k player?

Excellent, but not Audiophile.  The trouble with audiophile DACS is they expect a fixed bitsream. They don't expect a variable stream that  you get from a mediaplayer.  Who  wants to blow the tweeters of £10,000 speakers?   

Surround Amps are designed to cope.  So a good compromise is a surround amp thats reviewed as being good for music.

I have moved onto a mini-pc runnig foobar2000.  Gapless and upsampled.

Hi. I have the Med1000. The DAC for music is excellent from all that I have heard.

Is the Zappiti DAC better?

Would love to know.

Thanks.

You would need a powerful PC to  act as a server. and do other things, at the same time.

Hi,
This original thread was about what's happened to Mede8er.
Sadly they did not produce a 4K player and changing markets have moved in different directions.
That said, I personally feel a huge bond with all my Mede8er's.
Anybody that say's the Mede8er's days are over honestly don't know what they are saying.
The Mede8er in my lounge (1000X3D) has well over 1,000 movies on it with more added every week.
They are 1080p movies but not all have Master or H.D. Audio soundtracks.
My 4K T.V. (LG E6V) has a pretty good scaler on it so watching a movie is a near 4K experience.
Sorry if I have repeated myself in posts, but if anyone is not getting satisfaction from their Mede8er
now will you please P.M. me as I may be able to help.
Chris

Hi jer1956,

I'm pretty sure it's my P.C. I have a website for downloading movies from, and once I start downloading a movie I now leave the P.C. well alone (rather than surfing) until the movie has completed downloading and things seem to be improving with the audio popping.

Technical Issues / Re: TV Scraping and Trailers seem to have stopped working

Given how quiet itís gone on this issue I took the HDD out of my Mede8er and plugged it into my PC and set it up as a Plex server. Works like a charm with great artwork, descriptions, photos of those who star in it etc. - itís very slick. So much so in fact, that Iíve now gone out and got a cheap Synology NAS and transferred it all on to there and can now watch all the stuff I had on my Mede8er on my TV, PC, Mobile phone and iPad wherever I want. Sharing this in case the Mede8er issue doesnít get resolved so people know they have options.
