Technical Issues / Re: MED800 hdd upgrade
« Last post by gibraltar on September 19, 2021, 05:40:31 PM »
Hi,
Disk was brand new, initialized in Windows and formated with one gtp partition. Also formated in the MED800 after to create the internal structured. Formating inside de MED800 also gives it a name.
Thanks for the tips but still no go.
I got tired of trying to get it to work and will replacing it with a WD disk. Should arrive sometime next week.
Fingers crossed.

Technical Issues / Re: MED800 hdd upgrade
« Last post by sayon on September 19, 2021, 05:00:21 PM »
the only things that come to mind are ... did you remove any kind of share from the disk before putting it on the med8? did you rename the disk to any name you like? The med8 wants the disk you install to have a name. I can't think of anything else ...

Technical Issues / MED800 hdd upgrade
« Last post by gibraltar on September 18, 2021, 09:27:39 AM »
Hi,
So I'm still keeping my MED800. I had to upgrade to internal hdd because my previous 4tb was full. I installed a Seagate Ironwolf NAS 8TB. I was able to format it and the disk seemed to be working. I tried coping some files over the network and all seemed OK, I could see the files and play them.
I then open my MED800 to remove the disk and connect it directly to my computer, along side my old disk, so I could copy all my files faster.
After coping 4tb of data I return my 8tb new disk to the MED800 and when I turn it on the disk is not recognized, it spins up but does not show in the MED800.
I've since repeated the copy process (after formating the disk in the MED800) a couple of times and tried to copy my files over network and also USB. At the end the disk is never detected...
So it seems the disk is detected and works OK, but as as soon as I fill the disk with data it stops getting detected.
Anyone has any ideas?

Thanks.

Had the same problem.
Is due to disabling SMB1 (lots on that topic on DSM forum)

My Solution: use NFS
On DSM7:
Enable NFS (I Used max NFS-Protocol NFSv3)
On a Share I added NFS-Permission for my Mede8er 192.168.1.x/32, Read/write, check Give Users permission ....

On Mede8er
Media Library, NFS, (menu button) Probe NFS, IP-address NAS
Made Some Shortcuts From There

Hi,
With the recent changes to IMDB, Y2M is no longer picking up the plot, rating and genre. Is there any workaround to this other than manually inputting the information in xml file?

Thanks

General Discussion / UPDATE - Large 16TB HDD Successful (12TB, 14TB) on med1000x3d
« Last post by KTR on August 15, 2021, 08:17:02 AM »
Dear colleagues,


UPDATE: I can see that until now 195 people viewed my post, but unfortunately no single reply
Apparently putting an expensive large HDD in our brilliant but old players is bold step.
While I was wondering about that, my wife surprise me with gift for my birthday (player Zidoo Z10 Pro + 16TB Seagate EXOS). I immediately took advantage and put that 16TB HDD in my MED1000x3D.
Guess what...it works like a charm and the MED1000x3D found the hard drive as fast as my old 3TB.
I use firmware 4.0.1
The 16TB HDD was formatted under windows NTFS (GPT)
I hope I was helpful for someone who want to upgrade to large HDD.


Now I have some dilemma... which player should I keep?
I love the simplicity of my Mede8er, but the Zidoo can play absolutely everything what is out there + the bonus of android media apps on the same box.


Original post:

Intro 😁

Ireally hope there enough people still visiting this forum.
I am very proud owner of med1000x3d for 8+ years.
I'm sure all of you who are here, will agree that mede8er is one hell of a player 😁

Despite how much I like it, I start thinking lately to look for more "modern" alternative with some new futures like 4k, h265, etc. I spent several weeks to convince myself that there is nothing there on the market that si better then my  med1000x3d. Yes...I don't have 4k and h265 on it but I have something MUCH more.
"New, fancy" players like "Dune, Ziddo, Zappiti, etc. lack of one huge future for me. Internal HD audio decoding.
All new players of the brands above don't have it.
Because of licensing, they have 5.1 passthrough via hdmi or downmix to 2.0
They don't decode HD audio.
The problem is that my 5.1 home theater is old as my med1000x3d 😁 but the sound is outstanding and I don't want to replace it.
Unfortunately it doesn't support Dolby Digital Plus and Dolby True HD. Now I'm happy that this decoding is done by my med1000x3d 🥰

Because all of this, I decided NOT to buy new player and remain with my mede8er.

But I was wondering, if any of you was bold enough to try and test any larger HDDs like 12TB or 14TB?
They are quite pricey and I don't want to risk buying one.

I have currently 4x HDDs (2x 4TB and 2x 3TB), but is bit frustrating to have to exchange them constantly.
Also I'm concerned to damage the sata connector of the often change.  That's why I start thinking for one large hdd to accommodate all of my media. It doesn't matter for me if is installed inside or is external. Then I can keep the older 4 HDDs as backup 😊

Thanks in advance for all opinions.
I really appreciate them.
