Can C200 play an ordinary audio CD
Hi,
My CD player and my DVD player are requiring an update.
I wonder if I can use the C200 as a stand alone CDaudio player and standalone DVD player.
thx,

RE: Can C200 play an ordinary audio CD
Not yet according to the notes here:
http://www.networkedmediatank.com/showth...?tid=23731

But it seems to be a planned feature, so we should get it with a firmware update!

Edit: sorry yes, the CD player feature is actually already implemented according to that same note.

Quote:Some Important Notes!
Commercial DVD or Blu-ray Disc playback are NOT applicable for composite output

First Batch and Second Batch Users will find this in there package

1.) FLAC audio codec
2.) Auto Framerate
3.) Audio CD playback from SATA loader
Some words about it Point 3 already closed, so yes you can playback Audio CD's already from an SATA loader.
Point 1 and 2 are currently in progress, wont give a ETA but we are near ready.

RE: Can C200 play an ordinary audio CD
Umm... maybe I'm reading it incorrectly, but as I understand it, that says that DVD playback won't be possible via composite, and that audio CD playback is possible from a "SATA loader", which I assume to mean a SATA DVD/Blu-ray drive.

Maybe I'm looking in the wrong place...?

RE: Can C200 play an ordinary audio CD
yes thats it

Commercial DVD and BD wont work over composite
Audio CD works with an BD or DVD drive installed to an sata port

RE: Can C200 play an ordinary audio CD
Well, that's cleared that up. Cheers.
That was actually slightly arrogant of me... I didn't even think to mention the via composite issue, because I didn't think anyone used composite anymore. But, of course, some people do.

Werner, is this something that will be rectified through firmware updates, or will composite never be useable?

Yeah, I wondered whether it was licence-based.

Ta.

SD is still free of copy protection ('display protection') issues.

I hope SD never dies. its a small breath of freedom in the anti-free DRM laden world we now live in ;(

composite and s-video are lousy; but component is FINE. I hope it never goes away.

but the content providers HATE the 'analog hole'.

I love the fact that we have not been 100% forced into an all-DRM world.

please keep analog video alive.
