After a nice weekend

We promised ourselves to start or end a good day with Champagne or a Cava ;-)

We are again busy with firmware(s) … it never stops ;-)

People do not know what ROT13 is .. I wrote somewhere a sentence, but no-one did notice it yet .. It has a easter-egg / feature / functionality hint in it ..

Testing some features/ functions of the CFULLHDMA after some feedback users

I’ve received some new files which are not playable … it’s good to get a lot content to see if it’s playable yes or no ..

Let’s make it available to some people .. ;-)

CFULLHDMA 1.09.04 Firmware [beta]

v01.09.04 [beta testers version]
this version is only interesting for those who want to play with NFS …

1. support NFS (experimental)

Support for NFS shares is added through the iMEDIA menu button
Add a new station: give it a name and enter for the address
nfs://ip-address:/path
for example when using CH3SNAS with NFS you can enter nfs://192.168.1.20:/mnt/HD_a2
when pressing ok you will notice that the ICON is still a blue circle, go out of this menu and go to the main menu or ie. setup menu. Re-enter the iMedia folder and the blue circle is changed into a folder. When entering this folder the actually mount of the NFS share is being executed
and you can access the NFS shares you have created in your exports file.

sidenote: if the icon has changed in a folder through the BGM button you can only edit the title, if you need to change the path, you have to enter a new station. If the icon is still the blue circle you can edit all through the BGM button

this feature is experimental and we are checking how to make it more userfriendly. But hey .. NFS itself is not really userfriendly ;-) its for linux geeks only, no linux box/nas no NFS

2. remove PowerOff warning/error message
3. fix small avi ( ~10M ) segmenataion fault issue from NAS

People who want to beta test can apply with a valid e-mail address in the comments.
