I 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?

If you have plex server than the Nvidia Shield Pro 2019 with Plex can playback DV in MKV and MP4.

I moved away from the Dunes now and wanted to start using my Plex and Emby server (as they do automatic cover art, watch lists, series link etc) I have them running on my NAS and the Nvidia Shield Pro is the best device for Plex and Emby and as it is an offical product with proper Android TV (not a folk) and DV license it fully supports Netflix in DV and Atmos etc.

You should be able to add favourites to desired folders

If you are mapping network drives (eg NAS/PC) then you can map it to the point you want it without going through the whole network icon and browsing the network location.

Dune has not updated their interface for a very long time (well over 10 years) but felt their software was solid compared to the competition but I believe that has changed now.

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).

Can zapitti GUI or skin be installed on Dune hd vision. If so that would be a whole lot better. Maybe I’ll keep it then.

I recently bought this player, and I like it, but the front panel display should have more options! Is there a way to turn off the always on clock? Even if the player is off, the clock still displays. Also, the movie progress display is unreadable from across the room. There should be a way to show only the remaining time left, like in previous Dune players, rather than the tiny screen with the file name scrolling all the time. Also, you should be able to disable the display all the way if you want to, right now there's no way to turn it off.

The clock is displayed when you turn off the player because it's not really turned off, it's just sleep mode. It's how it works, sorry I don't have the English menus: Parameters>"Miscellaneous">Power management>POWER action> Turn off or Sleep mode. As for what's left, I agree with your analysis.

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.

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.

Wow! 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! :)

I'm lazier than you obviously :)

It is one those value added features that helps to differentiate players. Often requested and with Dune for consideration, again!

I think the front panel display should either be useful (readable from far away) or all the way off. Right now when watching a video you can't do either. Also, why are they showing the filename on the display at all, I never forget what video I am watching, I only want to know how much time is left. Dune, please add this feature! Thanks. :)
