Dear APMichael,

thx for your quick reply.
I will try to put deep colour to "off" in the med600x3d.

What i also tried yesterday, is to play the same DTS HD Master movie but copied from the external HDD to my internal computer HDD.
There it seems i have no sound-interruptions than... but i only tried watching for 4-5 minutes... so its not really proven yet.
Is a usb 2.0 connection maybe to slow, must it be a usb 3.0 connection to the external HDD ?  Or does this not affect the problem described.

One further comprehension question: You wrote "...But unfortunately, it seems to be a compatibility issue with older Onkyo AVRs.." -> ....shouldn't I have in this case the same problems with my panasonic blueray-player playing the same DTS-HD Master movie (burned on a bd disc) and connected to the same Onkyo-AVR via HDMI?... because i have no sound interruptions with the bluray player... this confuses me  a little bit.


Greetz,
Armin

Hello!

You could try the following on your MED600X3D:
- Check that the picture option "Deep Color" is set to OFF (8 Bit).

But unfortunately, it seems to be a compatibility issue with older Onkyo AVRs:

Technical Issues / Re: YAMJ suddenly taking hours (on rechecks)

My ISP was always oke, it got worse the last couple of weeks. I informed them, they are working on it. Stange thing is: speed is 50%, but that doesn't explain why YAMJ takes so long. I guess it will be better soon.

I also backup my 4tb mede8er disc to another 4 tb disc connected to my synology :-)

Simply deselect most down left checkbox "select all titles" and only select the new movies, the hit "copy to mede8er"

I managed to update my jukebox today, 5 new movies and a bunch of rechecks. It took 6 hours :-( Stupid ISP!

Thanks for that ... did that several times today ... lovely tip. Not sure why I hadn't really done it before.

Ouch, that truly is an awful ISP.

Having had an external drive fail on me recently, I've been playing with all my drives to try and optimize the setup for this household.  No data had been lost as I have backups of everything.  But given our thread 'conversations' recently, as a small test on one of my drives [346 movies] I deleted the Jukebox and ran a scan from new. It took 19 minutes flat. There were about 8 movies where I had to tweak the fanart pictures then a further 3 minutes to write the contents to the drive! 

Guess my ISP is better than I'd previously given it credit for.

General Discussion / Soundinterruptions in HD-Movies M2TS with DTS-Master HD-Sound
« Last post by Bobby_Brown on December 03, 2018, 05:17:12 pm »
Hello dear specialists  :)  !

I'm a german fellow, so please excuse my spelling errors ;-).
 
In general I am very satisfied with my Med600X3D Mediaplayer.
It works wells since 4-5 Years with the actual firmware.
 
There is only one annoying problem with the sound in the following case:
I have often sound-interruptions during 1-3 seconds in M2TS movies  (with complete BD file structure) when the sound is DTS Master HD 5.1 or 7.1.
The video/image  is not affected: no interruptions there, but only in the sound.
Normal DTS (Core)  or DolbyDigital 5.1, or  Dolby HD or Dolby Plus are not affected by the sound interruptions.
 
My home cinema system is the following:
 
AV-Receiver: Onkyo TX-Nr 3009.
All HDMI inputs/outputs are linked with 1.4 HDMI Cables and soundsetting is 'Paththrough there
 
The Med600X3D sends the movies from the Router/Computer to the AV-Receiver and via ARC ist's send back to the Panasonic Plasma 50 inch Full-HD TV.
I Have a Computer with Windows 7, 64Bit, 8 GB RAM, Intell Core I7 processor, connected to an external 2 TB HDD (with all my movies) via USB 2.0.
The Mediaplayer Med600X3D ist connected via LAN to my fritzbox 7490 router, wich is itself connected to the computer also via LAN.
 
 
Could you please help me:
What settings should I choose in the Med600X3D  or in the Onkyo TX-Nr 3009 to avoid the sound interruptions .. or is the USB 2.0 Connection to the HDD the bottlenec, even if the image is coming fluently ?
 
I tried so many settings without finding a solution..
 
Kind regards and many thanks for your support,
Armin Pyroth,

Networking & Internet Issues / Re: New folders empty after mac update
« Last post by K.B.Nikto on December 03, 2018, 05:14:06 pm »
I use Apple TV but outside of playing things through iTunes, I don't know of a way to directly access files for playback. There are a few (I think) apps that provide an interface, like Plex, but my preference would be to simply play the files from a local drive like we had done through the Med.

I also have a Roku box and there is an app that will directly read off attached USB drives. I think it's called something exotic like "Roku USB." :D

By the way, I dislike Samba so much because it's such a slow protocol as compared to NFS. Large files simply don't play reliably smoothly.

Something you can do with an Apple TV is Airplay the file from your Mac. Cumbersome, but works if it's an mp4 or .mov. MKVs still are incompatible. And I haven't tried it with a DTS track and that might not directly play since ATV only deals with Dolby Digital and Atmos.

One other workaround is a Mac app called Beamer. It works niftily and will play any format of video or audio and convert it on the fly to something ATV will play. This needs to be played on the Mac and it automatically is sent to ATV.

A lot of workarounds that all take time and come with their own limitations. My preference would still be, ultimately, to use the Med (unless it's 4K, which it can't handle) because I've seen no player that works so seamlessly and with a great interface. Unfortunately, accessing the files in the first place is one of those "gotcha" prerequisites.  ;)

Thanks again for the feedback.

So I talked to Apple support today. They say that since it's not an Apple app and I didn't get it from the Appstore they can't offer any support. I must say I wasn't surprised. They did help and try seeing if there's an app in the appstore that could replace nfs manager but apparently there isn't. They say there's not really any settings that can or need to be adjusted in the mac OS.

So much for Apple support.

I'll be sending an email today to NFS manager support and see if they are familiar with the problem.

Will certainly update this topic when I have a reply.

About the factory reset of the mede8er. I'm afraid this will also have an influence on the access I have to my older folders. So I'm going to keep this option as a last resort.

Considering the time I've spent on this issue I'm also considering getting a Raspberry Pi or perhaps even an Apple TV (if this works) to fix things. But then I would have to look into this, which would also take time.

Best

1 minute to copy? Do you copy everthing? Or just the new added movies? You can select them only and YAMY only copies those, saves you even more time!

Thank you.

Yes I always copy everything. Shall try restricting to just the additions. Tried this a long time ago and didn't think it worked ... but will give it another go :)

Just tried the thread/core amendment.

One drive with 261 films .... deleted circa 10 entries and the complete process took 23 seconds! Then a minute to copy the results to the HDD.

Impressive.

Thanks for the tip. Worked well for me :)
