    So after a long afternoon of testing, I can hand on heart say Poster Wall V3 is not so good. I know it is in Beta still but it is just dreadful at pulling the correct information. I switched back to PW2 and, after a little editing, managed to get the titles correct data. It drives me mad, I have 2 other players now but the one I use mostly is the Vero 4K and this is for functionality. What I will say though is this, even the new Nvidia's nor my Vero 4K cannot match the Egreat for Picture Quality. I just wish it had a better interface.

    I can't downgrade to FW android 5. I used " need to press the Reset button while powered-off, keep it pressed while turning it on and release it after several seconds. It should then start flashing" procedure . USB port is proper. Android robot passed and now almost 1 hour i have HELLOW on egreat display and EGREAT is loading on TV screen. I tried diffrent FW with android 5. Any ideas ? my FW was V.

    Good afternoon, today I have updated to version and I have detected, from the little I have seen, some errors.
    The most visible in my case is the language, if I put it in Spanish, I get it in a different language that I don't know what it is, so that the interface in Spanish comes out I have to put it in French, and it's a bit messy.

    The version 3.0 covers are very beautiful, but only if the title of the movies are in English, if it is in Spanish, for example, a big mess is made and not even one is right.

    I would appreciate it being corrected in the next review, as soon as possible please.

    Regards, and thank you very much.

    I don't understand why Posterwall 3.0 has such bad scraping for movie info? Poster wall 2 found 42 out of 44 movies I currently have to watch. One needed scraping again and it found it no problem. The other film in an obscure Korean movie and neither Kodi or Plex can find it so that's fine. Poster wall 3 found 29 out of 44 and 9 of them still can't be found using the edit function. Not only that, the data it scrapes for the mismatched movies is terrible. Hustlers, 2019 Movie, Posterwall 3 finds Trail of the Rustlers, a 1950's western. When you try the edit function it finds NOTHING else for Hustlers. A simple IMDB search using exact match find 4 movies called Hustlers. I want Posterwall 3 to work, I like the look, very much. There is also still Chinese Text when you choose to edit which, as someone in the UK using English Language I cannot read.

    The update is about problems with booting and shutting down which is crucial. Next to that it is all about PW3 which is common for both Android 5 and Android 7 so that development is at least futureproof.

    Try different sticks. Had lots of troubles changing Android OS versions myself. Finally it worked though.

    poster wall V3.0 does not see at least 20% titles, many titles are not recognized propely. lenguages .........; the only one advantage is quick loading but what for if i can not find many titles. in my opinion it is not good time to install V3.0 with v1.5.1.0.

    I did the update yesterday, and the poster wall 3.0 had nothing on it. I tried putting the hard drives in the path for them to find but it didn't seem to stick. Anyway, I use Vidon and that still worked after a reboot. Speaking of which, I didn't notice a faster reboot time or even boot up time on my machine. Still took at least 5 minutes to boot. I have an A10.

    Is there no responsible person who reads this and answers the questions of its users?

    You have a "crime" that does not check the software before launching it, for example the changed languages, problems with the V3 covers, the boot speed has not improved anything etc ...

    Anyway, possibly my opinion does not matter to any administrator, maybe it is time to change the player for another one with better support.

    Hello from Spain. I confirm what is published by Nestai about language selection in the settings. If you choose the Spanish language, text appears in German and if you choose French it is in Spanish. Because of that some covers appear in the other language that you don't want the one you chose in settings.

    Whereas when they're not on holiday, we can't keep up with the support they offer in these forums.....

    Well, I am done with my A5. I said it before, boxed it up, failed to sell it even though I was only asking £35. I dusted it off and set it up hoping, fingers crossed that this firmware would be something wonderful and it's just a dreadful mess. Its back in the box now and I am sticking with my Vero 4K+. Its a tiny box of wonders that is yet to let me down and most importantly OSMC is unbelievably supported and the forum communication is second to none. Been a pleasure guys'n'gals.
