BluRay OK. Media Player poor
on 21 November 2013
I bought this to play 3d Bluray and as a media server for my NAS and USB hard Drive.My Samsung TV will only stream 1080 MP4, no use for converted home DVD's at 576, so considered Phillips bluray as I wanted 3d also.
Remote control is basic, not even a tv volume control so you have to use two remotes.
Remote control android app useless.
Plays MP4 from NAS over DLNA but refuses to play the same files on USB. When it cannot play it freezes. And I mean freezes, you have to unplug to get it working again.
The home screen is unreponsive to the remote, slow to move across icons.
DLNA music files only go so far down my stored files list and the wont show the rest. DLNA on TV shows them all.
Machine is considerably wider than a SKY HD box so you will need to do some shuffling to get it to fit.
Cannot comment on Bluray player as I got so frustrated I put it back in the box before using it.
I have since returned the product as it was below the standard I expected.
