Latest firmware version Linktheater nfiniti (LT-H90) ?
« on: May 13, 2009, 01:11:15 am »
   

Hello,

 

the firmware of my Linktheater (europe) seems to be from autum 2008. Is there any newer version ? 

 

Its playing my digitized VHS collection very well. Bandwidth is good enough to stream most video files. I dont mind the lack of divx3 support and the lack of manually adjustable aspect ratio is annoying but neglectable.

 

But the lack of subtitles in mkv containers is a no go.

 

And, although the device has macrovision inside, it is not possible to connect an usb dvd/blue ray drive and use it as common dvd/bd player. ISO and VOB support is useless with copy protected discs. Even if i live in a country where private copys are not illegal, i dont see any reason to copy 8 gigabytes data to my NAS when i could have a small slimline dvd drive plugged in into the Linktheater. Macrovision without playing copyprotected dvd's is beyond my understanding...

 

I bought the Linktheater because my Linkstation is a well designed device. I think the Linktheater has the potential to be of the same quality. But right now it is in an unsatisfying condition.
