Update to the 900B with new casing design. Same 1186 chipset and same firmware. Compared to the 900B it uses a slot access HDD tray instead of the hatch, has 1 more USB port in place of the external SATA connector, 2Gbit instead of 4Gbit storage, and has 10/100 LAN instead of Gigabit.Official Website Youtube ACRyan Play!On HD3 Bluetimes Coopa 3550B Datage HDpro-i6 Eaget M70 Eaget M90 Egreat R160S Egreat R200S Egreat R300 Egreat R150 Fantec 3DFHDL Fantec 3DS4600 GIEC HD300 HiMedia HD910A HiMedia HD900C HiMedia HD900A HiMedia HD900B HiMedia HD900D IconBIT XDS1003D Kaiboer K660i Mede8er MD800X3D Mede8er MD600X3D Mede8er MD1000X3D Micca EP600 G2 Micca EP950 Xtreamer Sidewinder 3 Xtreamer Prodigy 3D
An update to the 900B?? How come the Ethernet interface has been downgraded to 100Mbit?
I have Himedia HD910B model.
I want to upgrade the firmware.
Is the firmware the same as HD900.
Please let me know
In a word - "yes"!
Dear owners -- does this machine play .dv files?
It's really hard to find a player that plays .dv files. .dv files are simply the raw uncompressed files from a MiniDV tape, for example
Annoyingly, almost all players will play .m2t files (the raw uncompressed files form a HD MinidV tape), but not the .dv files (raw uncompressed files from old-fashioned SD MiniDV tapes).
thanks for any info, owners! Cheers JOHN
I think you should assume it can't, unless someone who knows can say otherwise. I'm still trying to understand why it will play m4a lossy files but not m4a lossless! It plays ape and flac, both lossless, with no problems. Do you understand what is meant by a codec being in a "container"?
Actually, I'll try to download a .dv file and see if it plays. Do you know where I can download one?
Hi Roger, it looks like you can google .dv examples quite easily. Here's one
Notice the link to "The original captured DV file "
Note, if you have any handycam, the file that comes off your handycam is in fact a .dv file! MiniDV (SD) is in fact a big .dv file on tape. (MiniDV-HD is a big .m2t file on tape.) Cheers
Sorry, but no, DV files won't play even when changing the extension to AVI.
I haven't tried using the Android boot-up, but it's possible that one can get hold of an Application to give extra codec support, but I don't know.
Roger, thanks for that !!!
I have the 900B, which I am actually pleased with (after a few heart-stopping events such as it would not turn on!), and looking at the spec of the 910B it looks like the earlier player is superior, except that it was more expensive. Are there any other improvements that anyone knows of?
PS, I wish HiMedia would incorporate the ability to play lossless (lossy plays fine) m4a files and audio FLV files (video FLV is fine). Other than that, a very good player and cheap!
thanks for the reply and i can see where you are coming from
does make me wonder about the hi media team though - still, i guess i cant blame them for trying to improve their score (if that is what is happening) : )
i am well dubious on a month old device - with absolutely no feebback - getting higher ratings then established brands such as pch, wdtv, boxee etc
so i'm calling ALL of these exaggerated himedia device ratings as jacked up / rigged
and i reckon the site owners need to moderate these results accordingly...
The voting is open to everyone, the only restriction is one vote per IP address. It's not fixed but if a manufacturer or others want to vote repeatedly for their product then it doesn't take a lot of effort to do it. And stopping such up-voting would be near impossible.
This is the main reason why this site is not ranked purely by user votes. If it was then the rankings would be dominated by whichever company could be bothered to consistently up-vote themselves.
Consider the user rating as guidance only.
