Thanks scott :) Can I just say I have been using the beta release since it came available as the windows 7 support for me has saved me a lot of grief... So much so that I was even putting up with the slow .mkv starts.... Now this pre-release is out im over the moon :) so thanks.

I know you guys were put behind by the bricking issue so I hope my fellow WDTV owners can be a bit patient for you guys to get back on track... the beta release and now this pre-release is great for moral.... Looking forward to the next official release so all the great developers on this site will base their mods and customwares on that.

Cheers and thanks  ;D

dvd navigation would be really nice :-)
+ Hope for a b-rad-version of this soon since it may fix my CRT-overlay problem (cut-off videos on left/right side)

Yeah, DVD-navigation would by nice. However, it's not working (yet) in this pre-release (not for iso's and BDVM-folders).
Installation went smooth. I didn't try a lot of things, because I had to go to work. But everything still seems to work :)

BTW: thnx Scott for the new version. I hope it will be official very soon, so B-Rad will include this in his version :D.

1.02.19, eh?

Hm.. so what happened is:

1.02.14:
People: Yay, beta!

1.02.15:
People: When is the next one out?

1.02.16:
People: Why isn't WD releasing a new version!?!

1.02.17:
People: WD sucks - we are getting a popbox!

1.02.18:
JayAllan: ENOUGH - behave or I'm going to beat you all up!

1.02.19:
People: Yay, beta!

 ;D

If you think there is something wrong with your WD device contact them and then act upon that: Either wait or move on - don't whine here - this is not WD's board. If you have a problem, start a thread and ask - perhaps someone knows the answer.

Well mkv start is back to a few seconds.

You can indeed move the subs, but it doesn't seem to remember where you left them. (And I can't help feel its a waste of few buttons to use them for this)

And it still doesn't correctly play the mp4s from revision3s podcasts (http://revision3.com/forums/showthread.php?t=31691&page=2) - the image plays at 3-4 times normal speed, whilst the sound plays at normal speed.

Why? I like them - though the bug of a transparent border is still there. But now you can change the font size to huge (for soft subtitles - guess this means we are going to have to rip all DVDs to get better resolution!)

But if its an option I wouldn't mind.

In my opinion the font of popcorn and xtreamer are better.

I'm looking forward to this. Any estimate on when the final release will be out? Are we talking days, or weeks?
