    Good evening ;)
    I can't find any info that tells me exactly what is displayed on the Dune LCD. Maybe I haven't looked hard enough. :blush:
    Can any D1/Duo/Prime/Max owners shed any light please?
    I'm guessing it won't display DVD titles but might display audio track info (not much use to me as i run Sonos zones through the house and a Dune is unlikely to be used for music). Anything else?
    Thanks. Stu :)

    It displays very little information of use to be honest. I was hoping for at least a clock, but I believe that is only displayed in standby (which isn't a very power efficient standby, so I don't use it).

    It does show the time position when a dvd/bluray plays which is slightly useful though I suppose...

    The Max shows fairly basic info similar to a DVD/BD player. If you know where things are on the front page you can navigate (just about) using the screen as will display the folder's names (and text scroll where long). It will display full chapter names within MKV files which I find useful for music MKVs where I have renamed the chapter names to the actual song name (using MergeMKV).

    Version "110511_2007_beta"
    Improved output to the front panel display.
    - Improvement: when playing content having no known duration (such as Internet radio stream), the title of the played item is shown instead of meaningless playback counter.


    Version "110127_2105_beta"
    Added support for showing specific text message on the front panel display (for player models having front panel display) on startup of FlashLite application.

    Version "101201_1626"
    Added support to play music w/o using TV, using the front panel display.
    - The name of the currently selected item of the file browser (e.g.
    file/folder) is shown on the display.
    - When playback of a file/audiotrack starts, its title is shown on
    the display for a few seconds.
    - The currently selected playlist item (when playlist browser is
    activated by pressing POP UP MENU RC button during playback) is
    shown on the display.
    - Long names/titles are scrolled through the display.
    - The new features can be disabled via settings in "Setup /
    Miscellaneous / Built-in Display".

    Added clock on front panel display in standby.
    - Clock is shown automatically when time is synchronized (i.e. time
    synchronization option is enabled and Internet connection is
    working,
    or a time server in the local network is used); when time is not
    synchronized, clock is not shown.
    - NOTE: Time synchronization is automatically enabled after upgrade
    to this firmware version. If not needed/desired, it can be
    disabled via "Setup / Miscellaneous / Time synchronization".
    - Clock is shown in "software standby" mode only.
    - Clock showing can be disabled via "Setup / Miscellaneous /
    Built-in Display / Show time on display".


    Mark.
