We urge you to firstly read the V3 Specific User Manual before just making posts about things not working correctly.  

NOTE: All Hard drives must have a unique name for correct functionality with V3 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  http://quickandeasysoftware.net/software/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.
 
V3.0.5 - 29April 2014BETA
1. Improved thick border Subtitles - Its still mirror based and improvement is small but we are trying to stay away from the old way due to the bad Aliasing effect.
To test - Open subtitles menu while a movie is playing and focus on the extreme right menu with 'abc'  - top selection is as it was. Second option is with the improved border.
EDIT - 2. Removed Boot up audio.


V3.0.5 - 25April 2014BETA
1. Changed Home Page YouTube to HTML5 so that users can use USB Keyboard for text input Search
2. Added thick black border option for text based subtitles
3. Set Auto Standby to 'on' - set time to 2hours
4. Added Setup Option for Movie Scraper A-B - A= long plot length B = old style normal plot length
Currently working on other fixes in conjunction with Realtek and hope to post the next Beta as soon as we get these.
