There are to many bugs at the moment. My A300 freezes during movies (in allmost every movie at the moment) but the sound dont.
The A300 is very slow whit scanning the 1,5TB HDD. And somethimes i have to wait a couple of minutes before i can choose a movie i want to see.
It bugs me that NMJ still doesnt work correctly and i only use search by file name.

Hi, I really don't understand why you want to dump your A300.
I have mine for a couple of weeks and works like a charm!
Really responsive and all movies just play perfect, with subs, DTS-HD MA, Dolby true-HD, menu's, the works.

I would rather check your set-up of your A300 AND your network/NAS/whatever...

I'm using a QNAP TS219p on a D-Link DIR-825 router with CAT-6 UTP.

When this doesn't resolve your problems I think you should RMA the A300, then I guess it's a hardware fault.

Good luck.

Stop bullshitting us please, if you don't have the freeze/reboot issue, i'm pretty sure either you don't have an A-300 or you never use it.

I don't crash either and I put the a300 through hell as the primary unit used to debug eversion. The main difference I can think of is I have never launched nmj at all so the scanner and what not is not running in the background

I also dont get get a reboot/freeze. I do get a dropped network connection that only a reboot fixes. And the occasional its in the screensaver and you push a button and it goes into standby. but that is rare also.

I am pretty sure I haven't had any spontanenous reboots, have had a couple of freezes though.

On a similiar level of annoyance though is I have to forcibly restart the device when it seems to get into a situation where it won't play any file which seems to happen a few times a week.

After restarting the PCH it works perfectly again. I had a weird one the other night where I just had audio on a file but no video, but after restarting it played fine - pretty similiar symptom I guess.

When it gets into the situation where it wont play anything it normally goes to a black screen after selecting a movie, then after a short period drops back to the directory listing.

I used to get the same kind of problem with the A100 as well (need to reboot to play anything), but at the moment it seems to be occurring more frequently on the A300. The A100 probably got more freezes though.

I do use the built in jukebox, but probably only 20% of the time at the moment.

Look all.... freezes and reboots will happen when the box is asked to do stuff it can't do.. Me I'm happy with the reboot as now I don't need to hold down the power button for a restart after an error state.
If you only run perfectly RIPPED media and not do other stuff during playback it will not freeze or reboot.

That said... anyone wanting to sell the A300 cause he can't make it work..... will make another user, who can't afford one now, very happy.Big Grin

Ok maybe i was a bit overreacting but this thing bugs me a lot after a view months. And mkv movies freezes a lot lately. I have to skip a minute to watch the movie further. And the NMJ doesnt work as seen on many youtube videos, it is stil one big mess after renaming all of my movies with renamer. Okay most of my movies are with the correct cover ect. But still there are enough movies which dont, and if the cover aint right the search for desent subs is gone but also the movie info. Besides the movie info is in English and i want it to be in Dutch.. owh well. The covers of my music albums in NMJ is still one big mess, after tagging 300+ albums! And the last two months i only search by titel instead of covers Sad can you understand my point here?

A friend of mine got a Mede8ter500x2 and it works like a charm. With a nice video and music wall, just what i want nothing more nothing less. I have the feeling that we are waiting a bit to long for a decent fw update from Symbian.

I never stream my movies i only use a internal Samsung Ecogreen HDD 1,5TB. When i start up the system i have to wait more then a minute or two after the thing, how do you call it?, stops circling. When the systems has a startup from standby it keeps circling and circling. The systems freezes when i pushes the buttons on the remote to fast, for example with music.

So maybe anyone could help me out here?

I think their is something not right with the filesystem on the disk or the disk itself.
are you using NZB get or torrent?
Long time to boot and bad inconsistent transfer streams...... Disk issue.

My guess: a big load of broken torrent or Usenet files that need to be fixed..... due to multiple restarts while writing to disk...
Gparted boot cd for your PC and plug the HDD strait in there..

and defragment while you are at it...

I only use torrents. I connect my laptop to the A300 to transfer multiply files. And at the same time i remove the old torrents that i have seen.

Still think your disk is highly fragmented and has broken files the filesystem is working on during bootup.
Torrents during playback can be to much, think of the open files and treads it needs to maintain..... and serve a movie!

Completely random sometimes when a movie starts to play I can't hear anything the only way to fix this is,if there is a second audio track, to switch to it and then return to the original. It's a firmware problem? I have the pop a-300 directly connected to my hdtv with hdmi cable and all the audio codec setted to downmix. Have anyone else experienced the same issue? It's not so important but however it's annoying

Yesterday i wanted to defragment my internal HDD from the A300. But in win7 it isnt possible to defragment it. Maybe because the player is written in Linux? My caomputer wont see the internal HDD from the A300. That is strange cause im using Ext2FSD to transport files whitout a problem.
I never download any movies with the A300.

There's no need to de-fragment an ext3 filesystem.
If you think there might be corruption, connect the hard drive to a PC and boot off a GParted live CD and check it.

math time. c-300 was released the 19th. chinese new year started on the 23th. ended the 28th depending on if people only took 7 days some people are allowed to take more days. so that leaves us a week time if everyone took only 7 days. Give them at least two weeks. I steady firmware is better then a rushed one.
