ISO playback froze
I was watching my first ISO file on the PBO last night, and at the 2:12 mark it simply froze. I was able to go back a few frames and then go forward, but it froze at the same spot. (I was able to play the same ISO file without any problem on my notebook this morning). I played with the go-to function but it would start to jump ahead by huge amounts after a few seconds and would inevitably end up at the end of the movie. The scene selection doesn't work either, it just starts the movie from the beginning no matter which scene I select.
Any ideas or is this a known issue?
Are you playing it over the network? If so, wired or wireless?
I'm running it from a locally attached USB Drive.
FYI, it also froze at the exact same spot when playing on an ASUS O!Play, but unlike the PBO, the O!Play lets me go to specific scenes and chapters. Is this something that Patriot needs to address in its firmware?
you can try the goto function
I tried goto several different times, all it did was kick me back to the main menu. The ISO movie showed as 1 chapter on the PBO, whereas on the O!Play, it correctly identified the 31 chapters and allowed me to jump to scenes from the scene menu, something the PBO would not do.
I tried another ISO file which played perfectly on the O!Play, including scene selection. This time it played fine on the PBO, including scene selection. BUT, once I had selected a scene and started playing it, I pressed the stop button and went back to the file selection menu. When I selected the same file again, it errored out with "invalid file". I tried this a few times and even tried rebooting and disconnecting the USB drive, no joy. It looks like it has corrupted the file.
To be honest, I really want to like and keep the PBO over the O!Play. But every time I get one step forward, I get sent two steps back.
