I'm new here and i came to stay.
I changed a WD TV Play into a S905x Player from Aliexpress and it superseedes the old system.
I had the following wishes:
- Play x265
- Use Amazon Prime Video
- Faster Boottime (15 sec instead of 2 min!)
Everything is working fine.
I have had a few problems:
- Sound not working properly with HDMI 5.1 extractor -> wrong channels are choosen in player options (2.0 instead of 5.1)
But therefore some 2.0 stereo Videos from Amazon Prime sounds strange, i have to "play around" with the audio track and toggle the bitstream output on/off if occurs.
- DLNA/UPNP often not working (not found), even after some time and after restart. I had to play with the "waiting for network on boot" switch, works perfectly fine now, although boot time did NOT increase after toggle on. Must be a bug.
- integrated WLAN does not work, because it is a cheap edition with the non-supported WLAN chip. I had a few spare parts of Realtek Wifi Nano Adapter, which are not compatible with Win10 and therefore useless for most cases. They work fine, and there is even another wifi stick waiting for my second player in the sleeping room arriving on christmas.
I won't upgrade the system until late beta or RTM, because everything works fine for me now.
BTW: Don't you have any donation option?
