The Patriot PBO Core Media Player is an excellent option for anyone looking for a media player that can play just about an video & audio file format, has a quality build and is affordable. Also, support is very important with products like these and Patriot has that covered, with constant firmware releases and a large forum.
I did'nt see anywhere in the manual that shows how to use the NUMBER on remote control to randomly select the movie or music list from 1-1000 (for example)except use the UP/DOWN key. What 0-9 key number on remote control use for?
weight sign of quality, looks nice..you still sound like you got sickness leftover rodney, get well!
Yea, this cold is really hanging on :/
Hi there - Nice review of a nice product.
Have a question about the .mkv format
I have a large DVD collection and a Backup server wich also could stream media files to a player
How do I store the DVD´s on my server so I can use a media player ?
Is there a .mkv converter you use or ... what ?
I hate that my shelf is full of original copyprotected DVD/BD - when they actually should be
on my server for easy access via a media player.
So please ... any advise or guide, would be great
**Drive is not included..
True, but size if a preference and if on a budget get an affordable external 3.5" USB drive.
I did not see any mention of HD audio formats. One of the big problems with these media players is support for DTS-HD MA and Dolby-TrueHD formats for Blu-ray ISO/MKS/M2TS files. I lot of the manufacturers have not paid for the licensing fees to support the HD audio formats.
For my TVIX HD-N1, I have to convert the audio to Dolby 5.1 or DTS for correct playback.
Oh, BTW, 2.5 inch HD at 5400rpm are plenty fast enough for HD video. Plus they run cooler too. I would stick a Samsung Spinpoint 1TB 2.5 drive in there for about $100.
10/100 Mb/s interface...what was they thinking there. Gb/s interfaces are standard on every media device today and for true HD formats is often required too. The xbox 360 comes to mind here and cannot handle streams from my media server (HP Proliant).
File format support is pretty well compensated for so that's definitely a bonus.
The analogue connections, why even bother.
Shame the chose to go for a 2.5" drive, they are a classic for not providing fast enough read speeds for 1080p formats. With the size of the case, they could have places a 3.5" drive in there pretty easily.
For a media station I give it 3/5, they could have easily solved the above aspects.
Remember, you can pick this Media Player up for around $100. So all things considered, it's an excellent buy.
Was you deliberately going for the "Sexual Predator" voice?
LOL... Not really, I'm frightening this nasty flu, with head congestion and a sore throat side effects :/ My daughter is in kindergarten and she brings only the worst colds/flues she can home to every in the family ;) Anyone who has young kids can attest to this.
Oh I can vouch for you on that one :(
I swear they should provide HASMAT suits for parents XD
