    I bought mine with AMEX, but unfortunately, while I was sitting around waiting for Patriot to (neglect to) fulfill their promises to their customers month after month, my 90 day window for a hassle...

    I'm with you, Seryoku. This fiasco is fairly close to, if not outright fraud. I have emailed them about this in the past, and they have said that they don't offer refunds, but would be willing to...

    While it's good to see some sort of activity going on at Patriot, this is a point release, not a major overhaul that the 3.x designation would imply. Unfortunately for all of us who have spent good...

    We had a thread going discussing that exact question, but a Patriot employee or other moderator took it down. They don't have time to post or support their product, but they have time to censor their...

    I think someone must have also accidentally deleted the rule that says that Patriot employees aren't allowed to post any updates, information, or firmware for their product to the forum after July...

    Don't kid yourself. He not only still works there, he posts daily all over the Patriot forums, just not in the Alpine section, because let's be honest, they've likely all moved beyond caring anymore.

    When this, or a host of other problems occur, check the date/time on your PBO. It has likely changed the date to something at the early part of the 20th century, or something in the near future when...

    RMA for a full refund of your purchase price. Hell, I bought mine from Amazon, which still lists the unit as including Optical Audio out. Taken verbatim from the text provided by Patriot, no less.

    EV - You, as well as everyone else on here should absolutely leave feedback regarding your experience online at the retailer from which you purchased your Alpine. It is ridiculous enough that this...

    I can confirm with near certainty that the issue is related to units not connected to the internet at large but to a local area network or no network at all. My unit is connected only to a usb drive...

    I can confirm that Method 2 (option 2) works as well, however I could not get Method 1 to work because of a problem with the terminal. My terminal app (term.apk) will not recognize the '>' symbol as...

    Snappy, I find that I am having to reinstall this every time the unit is power cycled. Any ideas, or is this just part of the bug set in the firmware that causes the Alpine to forget the date and any...

    Forgive you? Assuming you are not secretly a Patriot employee, I'd say they should thank you, or maybe even put you on the payroll! You manage to respond here more than Patriot does!

    Third

    I will third your disappointment. This unit feels more every day like a colossal failure for a company that up to this point has provided me with well-built and dependable products.

    Hmmm. I'm a bit flustered, because as others have noted, the mockups of the rear of the box provided by Patriot were labeled "Audio Out".

    More importantly, it seems from the earlier thread that...

    Audio out jack only sending one channel

    I recall from an earlier thread that the Audio Out jack is actually an A/V out jack (with composite video).

    24 Hz Video?

    Hi,

    Just received my Alpine today from Amazon. I've been a long-time owner of the PBO Core, and I have to say - at the outset, I'm a little disappointed in the Alpine. A lot of features included...
