Err I think the dumb Brit joke has passed you by!
Isn't in this' global world' everything connected or am I just on a bad LSD trip
Admit I did not get it as those names mean nothing to me.
Please enlight us.
I’m personally just waiting for better sort and grouping options and ability to use your own posters. I’m glad they’ve realised that the Max/Ultra models were not efficiently using their front displays and have sought to improve that.What I would like to see enhanced with Dune is subtitle features.
Yes, I always wonderen about the usage of that front display too. Zidoo is moving slow but steady improving theirs.

I posted the pics for you of the new firmware update and the larger front display on AVSforums, did you see it?
Also - not sure if this was answered - but the Dune database for scraped content - can that be exported in any way and imported to another Dune? I don't think it can be "shared" where both can bi-directionally synch to a "master" DB.
Use case is simple: I want to purchase another Dune 4K, but don't need a MAX. In fact, may want to purchase a couple, and have those synch to the Max where I prefer to do collection management.
I did and much appreciated. Gin addled senile that I am I completely forget
You can download a CSV of your collection and then manipulate in Excel, as I do. It is a relatively simple process as explained in the link below. Sadly that is for info only and if you own multiple Dune devices then you have to do multiple scrape efforts, unlike Zappiti where it is at account level which can be shared between machines.
Zappiti has an offline mode which allows basic functionality without going onto the internet. It is essentially a one time download of poster info from the Zappiti database to your own machine. Dune does not have anything similar and if their server ever disappeared I suspect it would work on an “Explorer“ type basis.Makes me wonder - and I 've not tried it yet: does the Dune need to ever "phone home" in order to work, even periodically? Have to block it from the internet and see how it behaves. Obviously scraping won't work, but more of a test to see if it ever requires contacting "central servers" to continue operating.
No not as far as I am aware. It’s now in the nature of these devices that they are reliant on the internet to a significant degree whether that be via manufacturers servers or third party listing sites such as IMDb.Is there any published information on exactly what Dune stores outside the device, and what features require an always-connected (or "online") mode? It strikes me that given the amount of local storage, needing to be connected seems unnecessary.
