There are rumours that there will be one maybe in Q4 but no official statements will be made by the company or its testers, so if you really want it you could wait, but until then a Med1000 would do just fine for anything up to 1080p.

i expect Mede8er will make a 4k player for 2017.
I read it should be based on the RTD1295 chip.
I expect it will have a HDMI2.0a output to be HDR10 compatible and i would also expect it to be compatible with Dolby Vision.

I'm about to purchase mede8er 1000 machine but before I do any newer machines comming

Why?  There are few things I still really like about my Mede8er, that keep me using it.
1. I like the way it allows me to fast forward and play audio.
2. Overtime it has proven very reliable.
3. No need for trans-coding or a server with a significant amount of CPU.
4. Output jacks that work with my old projector.

Still though, if I were to invest the money today on another media player, it would Nvidia Shield.   For the price it seems more future proof.

Currently I use a Roku 3 as my media player, the mede8er is just sitting there collecting dust.   But the Roku won't work if the internet is down, and I don't have a spare plex server.   So there are any number if issues I can have where I would need to tell my wife to use the mede8er for a few hours.   So I am definitely not ready to sell me mede8er.   But at it's current price point it would be far my list of recommended players to buy.

Production could have stopped when the ARM based 4k players first appeared. But demand continued and Me8erer had to find chips where they could, realtek having stopped production well before their ARM chip was ready. The result is players are made in very small batches, which drives up cost. But this is demand driven. People are willing to pay the usual price for a last chance to buy one, even if outdated by comparison with the latest chips.

All ARM based players use cloned ARM code, and pre-install KODI. It is basically a low cost badging exercise with little or no profit due to huge over supply in the market.

Just replaced my Mede8er with a Windows 10 Dell Inspiron 3050 micro pc, strictly running a Kodi build with MKV MVC support, which will be replaced with a Nuc once the new ones with the new Intel chips that fully support 4k hit the shelves.

I really hope that any new Mede8er keeps the same interface as it's so much easier to use than things like KODI.

If a new Mede8er comes out I know that I will buy one. I love my 600 but it's a bit slow compared to newer boxes. Apart from that it does just about everything I want
