Who knows better be sooner than laterI really can’t stand the gui, I have to click on many categories to get to my movies, not family friendly. My family like the zidoo GUI. I do like the picture quality but I might have to ditch it and stick with my uhd3000. Unless they have an update soon.
Any update on Dolby Vision output from MKV? I got loads of mkv rips from my UHD collection. Media Info shows DV layer on the mkv. Wondering if we will ever get this feature?

You can still do this. You can add network locations and apps to favourites (once at a location or app that you want to add, press top menu>add to favourites) and even have one of the favourites automatically launch at power on (from the power settings - I have mine set to launch Zappiti).
You can still press the info button whilst playing a film and an information box appears on screen that includes both the played and remaining time. Not the same I know but a workaround.There should be a way to show only the remaining time left, like in previous Dune players
Yes you can do that but I prefer to see it automatically on the display without having to reach for the remote. I’ve been asking Dune for this functionality for years and other brands have implemented it like Zidoo and Egreat players I’ve had in the past. It’s one of the reasons I prefer to use my Blu-ray player from Cambridge Audio rather than other media players I own from Dune and Zappiti.You can still press the info button whilst playing a film and an information box appears on screen that includes both the played and remaining time.

I'm lazier than you obviouslyWow! It really bothers you that much?!
I can't say that this bothers me at all. On the very rare occasion I want to know how long is left a quick press of the info button tells me - I don't mind reaching for the remote!
Follow-up... Movies seem stable and playback to me seems great. Honestly though i purchased this to be able to better manage my music library which consists of about 40k 98 & 192khz hi res flac files. I love the ability to have a video interface for my music library but so far this player falls way short IMO. There is no built in interface other than the HD player menu only option, you can't add audio files to My Collection, only video files. Kodi does not output to my receiver or DAC at anything higher than 48khz, the dune system itself seems to have many codec dependencies and breaks easily. I use all high end cables to both my DAC and receiver as well have done listening comparisons using the XLR outputs directly to my Tube amp which is what drives my main front speakers. That is honestly the best quality but i think due to the use of realtek it still falls short, audio seems a bit flat, shallow and hollow. I have also recently by fussing with the setting broke it for the 3rd time where the native hd player either using Coax/hdmi or optical will only now output at 48khz and no higher. Reverting back the settings in hopes of getting back to working state does not seem to work and now my only hope is to reset again which means setting all the streaming services back up again as well...Well, I just purchased this unit with the hopes that it be a good addition to my system for Audio as well as video. I use my Node 2i primarily for playing high definition audio but i really like the video aspects of this device. A little nervous how it will perform and how stable the UI is. The node is a great device as far as sound quality but overall the UI is not the best by any means and the initial setup was horribly painful when it should have been a simple hookup. I am looking forward to getting it. It just shipped out today ... stay tuned.
