    Thanks E_CS. :)

    Will give it a go at least. I must say my Egreat's are mainly collecting dust now as I moved to OPPO+Zidoo.

    Thank you so much E_CS for all your support here in the forums.

    I have a favour to ask. I'm sure you've read the problems I mention with PW3 in the A5 thread that prevent me from being able to use the latest player versions. Since from my understanding you have communication with egreat developers, are they aware of these issues (awful management of series episodes, latest uhd full blu-ray discs crashing and others) ?

    If so, is anything being done to improve the situation? I've tried many versions of PW3 over the past year or so and there has not been any improvement.

    Thanks for any help!

    Egreat PW3 like Zidoo HT 4.0(3.0) use same server for scrape both suffering of not care about year of release.
    Zidoo HT solve this problem with support of reading information from NFO files, Egreat doing this only on PW2.0.
    Between in last more than a year are very few words exchange with Egreat Team.

    I'm looking forward to hearing your views. My A11 has been off for some while now since coming to terms with my Zidoo 1000 Pro. I am interested in music playback comparisons between this new Egreat firmware and the Zidoo and also, as I've more or less decided to devote my Egreat to Photo playback , how it stacks up again with the Zidoo in this regard.

    Thanks

    I do like the Music Player GUI plus smartphone APP on Egreat but unfortunately it still does a bad job on HD-Audio. Zidoo recently did something about Picture Player after many years and now is doing a better job than Egreat there too.

    I may be tempted to re-use an Egreat as Emby/SMB Server? That works well after moving up to Android 7 with my setup. Emby is actually very nice compared with Egreat PW3 and even Zidoo HT 4 movie/music libraries.

    Just ordered an UHD3000 (forgetting about the very similar A15) as it seems to produce a very good sound via 2CH Analog. It even matches up very well with an OPPO 205 on that.
    Zidoo MP needs a lot of work for the presentation/navigation but basic 2CH media playback is going well. Just use Media Center to select an album myself (phone APP or TV).

    Updated to v3.0.7.1 FW which went without problems. No idea what "3. Fix known problems" is about? Issues with Front Display Level and FAN settings not being stored remain. Also AK86 via Bluetooth works the same as before. :(

    I have the impression Music Player is more stable now as I did not see a few annoying cosmetic errors in the GUI thus far.
    Moved A10 to my living to test also HD Audio reproduction: Now both 88.2 kHz and 96 kHz sample rates are handled native but 44.1 kHz still comes out as 48kHz just like high rates 176.4 kHz and 192kHz. The very annoying double sound/play seems to be solved (did not hear Native playback + Android playback anymore).
    SACD sound still comes out via Android at 48 kHz but plays both 2CH and 2CH/MCH ISO's. Putting SACD playback in the background still leads to a double sound.
    So for those using A10 as a Music Player it definitely is worth updating! :)

    Thank you @Nice Monkey very much appreciated. Will v3.0.7.1 FW be ok on my A11, do you think and will it Wipe anything when I install?
  9. Nice Monkey

    Nice Monkey Active Member

    There is no A11 version yet. E_CS always nicely makes 2 versions with/without wipe.

    I don't think for 44.1 can get something else then

    access: RW_INTERLEAVED
    format: S16_LE
    subformat: STD
    channels: 2
    rate: 48000 (48000/1)
    period_size: 480
    buffer_size: 960

    with that SoC, probably this why everyone add a dedicated DAC connect on USB interface on newest models.

    I thought A11 had a DAC added already for RCA output?

    upgraded successfully
    The first 15/20 minutes was a pain!!!
    No info or life signal from the player
    After that, I can say ... WOWWWWW
    Faster than ever, GUI is nice
    I can confirm that the brightness od the egreat display is not working as it does. Even if I set to 2 level, it show more light level (I have to confirm the flagged 2 to have the right level)
    In FILE mode, the HD is shown as SD device
    I have some trouble playing music: FLAC mutlichannel are recognized as stereo PCM: any tips for audio settings
    DTS -HD is good

    You need to use Music Native Output and set HDMI Output to RAW in Android Setup.
    Try the APP with music it is great.

    only to let you know.
    I have installed this CFW version (3.0.7.1) into my A10 (with stock 1.5.1.0) and everything worked fine (except some issue with audio format recognition)
    I have been lucky, or this CFW version is also good for A10?

    It is for all A10 models. Using it also with an original A10.
