ASPECT RATIO BUG IN FW 4 IS VERY ANNOYING

I bought 3 units of Sidewinder3 for my house. The stock FW3.5 RC7 did not have the faulty aspect ratio bug where all movies start to play in 16:10 instead of 16:9, which is now annoying me after I upgraded to FW4. Aspect ratio Settings are not saved, so every time a movie is played, it looks squished on my 60" panel because of the darn 16:10 bug. Support from Xtreamer is absent and inutile. I know I am not alone experiencing this bug. Where is the fix? Please help!!!

i Have sidewinder 3 with fw 4,0 and mine does not reboot , it is a decent player i also have sidewinder - xt mk1 and xt pro , sw3 is faster and nicer , first i was not happy with my sw3 but after fw 4 it is ok , but it still has some bugs , i have to have mine in list mode if i have it in prew mode it plays movies in 16/10 even if i have my player in 16/9 mode , so i really hope they will fix that bug soon. i bought xtreamer because i can see poster and prew of the film and for there custom fm and nice gui ,
my player is working ok now if i use list mode and skip android and net stuff, that does not work but i did not by my xt sw3 player for net stuff , i hope xtreamer team will use there power in fixing bugs in there player not adding more new things to the player , if i want net stuff i use apple tv or my smart tv . xtreamer players are getting better and better , i think my sw3 is working now like i was hoping for my mk1 - sw1 and pro to bee . but still a decent player and hopefully it will get bug fix soon , then i can not complain anymore

There's a lot of negative feedback for the SW3 in this forum. Don't know about that but mine's working fine since I got it a couple months back. Still no complaints to date, except for a few points. Android on the new SW3? doesn't seem to be functional, I mean the default music player or the gallery doesn't recognize files on the external usb. Tried fiddling around with it, no luck. Try browsing with a usb mounted mouse, it's as slow as hell, not worth putting up with. Android on my phone does better! It's probably better off without android in the first place, or make Android it's default firmware instead. It's almost practically identical to the Prodigy so you could probably expect the same if you've got a Prodigy. But as far as playing movies goes, it's flawless, though I've stumbled upon a few codecs that it wouldn't play, but that's not a big issue for me. The verdict... It's a great mm player within it's price range to be running on the cool Realtek 1186, compared to those old ones that sold for the same price back then.

I thought that I bought a defected device... but I can see from other comment's in several forumthat the trouble I am experimenting with Xtreamer sidewinder 3 are very commun.

Every 15 minutes (about) the Xtreamer sidewinder 3 is rebooting.

I installed an internal 2,5 inch hard disk, hoping that it would work better, I flashed as well the latest firmware.... No change. Whatever the source, it is not possible to watch a movie without interruption every 15 minutes. After reboot which take about 3 minutes, we have to select the movie again from the menu, find where it stopped (it does not bookmark when rebooting), remake also all the language et subtitle change if necessary.

By the way we do not get any support at all from Xtreamer manufacturers, I sent twice a mail requesting some help on this matter, no answer (

i have found the user forums to be helpful in the past for xts products

i don't have a sw 3 - but your prob sounds odd

std stuff that you must do - do the emergency fw ug process / reset to defaults

if still have probs - submit mediainfo reports so they can be checked

cheers and good luck

I got a similar prob. seems to me like sw3 doesn't like cn memory drives. I have 2 intenso and a samsung drive: no reboots. my 2 cn memory drives (different sizes) both cause the reboot behaviour.

Tried the new Sidewinder 3 today , was pretty impressed with the UI ,seems very easy to use amd attractive ..Fonts could hve been bigger ...ne ways its still decent enough .
Now for WiFi I had tried using Belkin Usb adaptor , and it seems to work but only with 64-bit WiFi key ..Tried a few mkv n avi and just worked fine ...the Airplay took a toll and lot of time to start , moreover there was continues problem with air play the streaming would stop , in between and again the iPad won't detect the Airplay ...so had to reboot the streamer ..other online services were ok ..over all 3out of 5.
PS.Some PLS update info for Asus Oplay TV Pro

Just bought my SW3 a while ago. Chose this over all other midrange media players available here. It looks sturdy. Not really THAT minimalistic, but goes well with my PS3 and LCDTV. Specs look great, too! GUI looks fantastic and fast enough. And the warranty... yes! The warranty! Limited, but hey, at least it has one (1 year). Unlike all other "Local" media players here in my country.

Really nice player. I have it as a companion to my WD TV, which I still prefer; but something tells me I'll get a lot of enjoyment out of fiddling with the SideWinder3.

i've had a mk1 for a couple of years and love what it offers, but like mentioned before a lot of bugs which have been dismissed due to newer products, i also feel the OS on the products doesn't feel solid, xtreamer are a awful company to work with i have been banned from placing any future orders because i questioned the fact they wanted scanned copies of utility bills, awful customer service and i would advise to avoid at all costs

I purchased SW2 and I was excited about its advertised features. Now, about 6 months after its release, they decided to "kill" it. We are left with a crappy player filled with bugs and when we protest in their forums we get banned. Xtreamer? Never again...

Don't trust Xtreamer. They promise features and they never deliver. Search in various forums all over the internet. There are a lot of disappointed and furious customers out there...

yeah i disagree about never delivering

they have over promised in the past - but have ultimately delivered on most things

i say this as a customer who has a mk1, etrayz and ultra and from a bang for buck point of view - i could not be happier with all of these products, 2 of which are over 2 years old now and still get daily use and have not missed a beat...

but each to their own....
