I consider myself a patient man, but the delays of the Dune TV-301 reaching our shores and the recent nagging from my good lady (to convert films to so they play on the PS3), are forcing me to have a re-think. I have the 301 on pre-order, but (through no fault of the supplier ) it's been on order since September. Well... that was supposed to be my birthday present in mid-September I am just not sure I trust any lead-times that come out of Dune anymore, so I want to have a backup plan. I think I will wait until the end of January and then jump-ship... I have spent far more time than I should have done reading threads on the forum about Dune's and my head is starting to spin Option 1) I could get a cheapy player (something like the £28 Sumvision units ) that play most formats apart from ISO. Wait for the TV-301 to arrive and then then use the Sumvision in another room. Option 2) Forget the TV-301 and just go for another Dune unit. I am sold on Dune, despite there annoying lack of accurate communication to end users and dealers This is a rather long post, but really I am leading in to another "which Dune model should I go for?" thread - The Smart D1/H1 is the obvious choice, but I am concerned that although it will certainly full-fill immediate requirements, it's got the "current" 8642 chip in it and I believe it's not upgradable. I'm concerned that this model will have a shorter life that I would hope for and I do like to have the latest tech - The HD Duo Pro. Same chip, same issue as above? Is it upgradable (which would sway me)? Seems a bit of a waste of cash as I don't intend adding an internal HDD. Everything will stream from my NAS. I see there are more connectivity options, but I doubt I would make use of them. - The HD Max. Ok, we're getting into some serious cash now and more than doubling the price of the TV-301. Same chip again, but I think I read somewhere this is upgradable? What else do I get for my hard-earned cash over the Smart series, apart from a BD drive and nice upgrade board capability that Dune don't ship any options for For anyone who has stuck it out, to the end of this post, I thank you I can't be the only one thinking along these lines. In fact I am sure I am not! Thanks.
