Philips has a new Media Player: HMP3000. See: here (http://www.philips.nl/c/blu-ray-dvd/hmp3000_12/prd/nl/?t=support) and here (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j6kya0emumQ).
So they now do know how to get compatible with multiple file formats.
A media player with Network connection (DLNA compl.), with (fast) Net TV and with internal Harddisk that would be ideal.

Hi,

interesting. But two thinks:

- no Easylink? Didn't find any information about that
- Soundsystem DTS 2.0 (Stereo) vs. Audio Support DTS?

Easylink is supported. See 2nd page of this document below "Convenience":

It confirms what I've told here a few weeks ago.
Philips, like other manufacturers, don't allow the TV's internal media players to do much, because they want to sell you another box.
Here it is.

You are right, this should be standard inside the TV. It is just a very small box, there is space enought in a large screen TV to add it. I'm curious if the next generation TV's will have this embedded.

Since we do not have this in our current TV's, it is nice that these media converters exist. You can just dump your audio, video & picture data from your PC to an external hard disk and via this smal box you can make it playable on any TV. It is not expensive.

What our TVs already have inside is more than enough to do what this box does.
It is limited by firmware, on the TVs.
There is no reason why our TVs can't decode all audio codecs and can't display subtitles.
Well, there is a reason - they want you to buy another box.

I'm really disappointed with Philips for this. I will NEVER buy this system as protest against bad service to long-term customers.

Hi,

I cannot find the subtitle shift option - this should be integrated for 21:9 TV users...

Dear Philips,

another question. Can you explain what "DTS 2.0 + digital output" means? It's written in the manual.

Just found out about this and is very impressed that it can handle so many formats. I didn't expect this sort of thing from Philips.

If any of the next year blu-ray models from Philips that can handle all these formats (like OGG & FLAC as a few MKV files use those for audio and all the subtitle formats), I will buy it for sure, even if it cost twice as much as these media players. Please do not disappoint me Philips!

If anyone has information please reply to the question on the media player Philips HMP3000/12
- Is there support sound format decoding
Dolby TrueHD 5.1 / 7.1 ...?
- Is there support for audio formats: DTS-HD High Resolution Audio, DTS-HD Master Audio, Dolby Digital Plus ... ?
- Do you support flash movies in the format SWF ...?

Asus O! Play Media Player MINI uses the same chip Realtek 1055 that Phillips HMP3000, has the support of all of the above, except for playing SWF files...
The price of Philips MP3000 and Asus O! Play MINI approximately the same...
I want to buy one thing but so far cannot make the right choice ...

Thanks in advance for your answers...

Hi,

for what do you need a keyboard - as far as I know, the device does not have Net TV...

I am presuming that this particular unit goes by the name GM1000 (non-wi-fi) / GM1001 (wi-fi) in Australia!? Can anyone confirm?

Is there is a possibility to connect a Hard drive with USB3.0 connector to HMP3000 . I recently have bought this kind of hard drive , thinking that my HMP 3000 will read files from it , but unfortunately HMP3000 does not recognize it ....
Can this issue be fixed with some software upgrade , or this is a hardware disadvantage of this media player ?
Thanks in advance :)
