The combination of Himedia and us has been shown to deliver great products with features that our customers want. I don't want to deal with a keyboard and mouse. For you only, if you email us before Friday 11th December you can return for refund. I use a cheapo remote control from ebay to play movies and it doesn't need configuration. If we don't post an update on our forum it's probably for a good reason, but you can of course install updates from the manufacturer.
Plex will do the catalog and C4 will manage the movies, the Dune will only serve has player. H8 firmware progress is much faster than either. I have a customer running with that setup with zero problem. Also I personally have my system shutdown upon security system arm and boot upon security system disarm. It will be the base for international version firmware 1. As with any of our drivers I recommend using the trial first to see if the driver meets your expectations. For your specific questions: 1.Next
I ripped all of my movies 1:1 with lossless audio. Plex does run on android however it was really designed to be used on tablet based devices. The picture on the H8 is in no way blury, it´s actually pretty good, daily use is very snappy and handles big libaries superb and fast, there are actually many things that talk for the H8 but sadly also some basics that dont do a propper job until now. Go for the Q5 and you have a fully working product with a crisp and very nice picture, if you want the extra power and have time to wait for usefull firmware fixes the H8 could be the way to look but the Q5 is a super product and with out doubt in the top 3 talking mediaboxes right now. But this come at a downside of default blurier video quality? Downside from using the wrapper is less kodi support for some features, particularly kodi apps.
Give no sence, is all about moral and some have more then others. There have been several firmware updates depending how you count and firmware is rapidly improving. For personal use, computer-based media player is a good choice but I would to recommend that for reselling to customer due to reliability. Image quality in Kodi without wrapper is very good, the same as other boxes with Mali-450 like MiniX X8-H, Wetek Core etc. To watch movies in 3D i am currently relying on the H8 internal player which appears to be working well for me.Next
You can also make your own locked down version if required with some skin modifications. I would prefer a player that has to transcode as little as possible which is why I was looking at the Dune or something similar since that looks like you can throw anything at it and it will play it. I just looked at the schematic and I don't think the boards are the same. I was really shocked when I saw this on my screen. I think I offered you the opportunity to return after 1. I use an old Harmony 676 to control it in the house, and Yatse when I'm outside.Next
Zidoo Kodi can be installed on H8 just like any other apk. Optimize local video playback, some sources picture Caton, track issues about the exception 5. In order use the setup mentioned you need to utilise our plex media server driver to import the movie meta data in from the server into Control4. Himedia will continue to improve H8. Why would you do that instead of running it on a minimal linux distro like Openelec instead? Is there anyway to turn that off? The good thing for the customers is that there are many who have moral and care so they share there experiences on a wast amount of forums in many languages, some are showing enough respect to recommend the working products that actually are realy fine, other just go after the brand with warnings.Next
It will not power up and when the board is tested it does not have the correct output voltages. This means all products come to market early. No full 3D playback in 3D, only 2D mode. . In my opinion, Gigabit is still more a marketing thing in media boxes. Lipsync still suck in the external player when playing 3D Iso. Also the ability to use other android applications is a huge plus.
You don't need to be tech savy to use it once its setup. So, I agree Dune is done, and all of the dedicated media player will die off slowly. I post it here as some proof that the problems are being worked on and solved: 1. My family is already integrated into the Plex ecosystem so their pretty familiar with it and what it can do. It is also quite easy to stream your content over the net if you so desire.Next
