  1. Support for network adapters and network shares

    Support for some wired and wireless adapter chipsets.
    Support for playing media from network shares (NFS and Windows) and UPnP DLNA.
    Most of the work behind it's just done by custom firmwares, so it couldn't be so difficult to add.

        • feat: set framerate/fps based on source

          it would be nice if it chooses output frequency based on the source. ie 23,97, 24, 25, 29,97 , 30

          ofcourse it should take into account the compatibility of the TV, since some tvs dont support certain frequencies.

          should also take into account the analog connected TVs/WDs! For example if i have it set on pal, it should output in either 25, 50 or 60 fps (if im correct?).

            • IMDB synopsis/rating support

              As in thumbnail support, perhaps we could have the synopsis and rating in a file? For example:
              Lord of the Rings.iso
              Lord of the Rings.jpg
              Lord of the Rings.imdb

              the .imdb file could be a text file with info like:
              rating: 8.6
              release year: 2002
              director: Peter Jackson
              Running time: 179 mins
              <synopsis here>

              • support for Motion-JPEG codec in .MOV files

                I have a camera that takes videos in this codec/format and I can't play them on my WDTV. I have many hours of video recorded that I'd like to watch on my TV. And for some reason I have trouble converting this codec to any other "more standardized" codec.

                Many cameras use this codec...Nikon, Canon,...

                • Remember resume playback positions file even after power off

                  Just record them into the database at the actual disk! Then you can even resume your movie on another WDTV unit!

                  • Use Prev and Next or < and > to navigate chapters

                    It would be nice to skip or navigate through chapters in an MKV (and any other container that allows chapters) by using then Prev - Next buttons or the < - > arrow buttons.

                    It is a little cumbersome hitting options, selecting chapters and then going to the chapter menu and then looking for the chapter i want.

                    • Add Powered USB HUB support, please

                      With 1.02.08 Powered USB HUB support seems to have gone away. Although it was never "officially" supported, they functioned with previous FW versions.

                      Such an awesome device should not be limited to only 2 drives.

                            I don't think we need the progress bar displayed during pause (we can pop it up by pressing enter). Whike ffwding and rwding there should just be a little or no time display in some corner

                                  I'd like to see a simple shot-down timer implemented.

                                  Just something like 15,30,45,60,90,120min would be cool.

                                  It could be placed under the menu that you get while playing video (where you have subtitles, zoom,etc)
