Medion Life E85015 HD (86162)
Budget player that has been spotted for sale in German, Irish, and UK Aldi (a supermarket). Uses an early 1073DA version of the Realtek 1073 chip that does not support DTS downmixing. The interface is an early Realtek firmware with little modification. As with many of these basic Realteks, it works perfectly well but will not be pretty. Think Windows 3.1 file manager. Performance is always OK from the Realtek players and this is no exception.

Update December 2010: A new version of this player that will downmix DTS (probably 1073DD chipset) is now available. It is the same as the original except for DTS audio, and suffers the same drawbacks as the original.

Received one for xmas. Wondering if there is any way to add NAS access via network to download movies from a pc to attached usb hdd. Having to unplug usb hdd to transfer movies is a pain. Yes, I know it can stream via UPNP but with Win7 can't seem to get it to work.

Another firmware release this week. Adds new UI (cosmetic changes only) and restores H.264 playback. Download link

Does not support DTS. however, as of December 16 2010 there is a new version at UK Aldi which is advertised as supporting DTS. Same model number as before but presumably using a newer version of the Realtek chip.

@Chris - replicated h.264 fault with July 2010 firmware.

Do you know if the players that have just gone on sale in Australia are DTS capable?
It says dts 2.0 + digital out on the side of the box?

I am having trouble networking - it keeps asking for Net User Id and password? using a lan cable through a router into an xp machine

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi guys,
Does this player support DTS? I want my Sony home theater to take the signal from the SPDIF on .MKV files and play it.

Hi !

Can this device be configured as NAT - what I mean is if it is possible for windows (on the PC connected to the same network as this device) to see the HDD connected to USB on this device ?

New firmware dated July 2010 at www.medion.co.uk adds support for Blu-Ray ISOs and unspecified bug fixes

There is new firmware for this box, as of February 2010, on Medion's German website.

Adds support for wi-fi dongles and Windows 7 shares.

Thanks for the reply, unfortunately not applicable to me anymore. Turns out the one Aldi sells here is not the Medion but 1 from enVivo which I can't find any info on anywhere aldi.nl/OFFER_NL_MI/OFFER_07/OFF06.SHTML

Does anyone tested if it plays RM/RMVB files? Dutch Aldi sites states it does but online manual and here do not list it.

It almost certainly does. All the Realteks we've come across play RMVB. It's probably not listed in the manual because RMVB is uncommon in Europe. Our detailed specs have come from the Medion specs so in this case the omission of RMVB on our site doesn't mean anything.

Sounds like the mkv file has DTS sound. .mkv is only a container. It can contain video / audio encoded in a variety of formats. This player cannot decode DTS audio to stereo.

This is the problem with this player compared to the better 1073 players..

I have same problem. Player doesn´t support DTS coded sound.
Have you find som solutionn yet - maybe new firmware?

Mark – Dublin
January 25, 2010 - 12:29

Can this play x264 MKV files?

Reply to Mark

January 25, 2010 - 14:02

Yes. Unless the MKV has only a DTS audio track or is encoded at an absurd bitrate it will play.
