oh no....!!! i supposed this means that the player (nor any other brands) will be able to support PPS...?? that is really bad news indeed!!! *ponders if i should still buy*

but i wonder what is the definition of "non-PC" ... these days devices are converging and if you setup a box using PC parts and add in a remote control... add in HDMI output and plug to ur HD TV... does that constitute as a "PC" or a "non-PC" ...??

Dear all valued HiMedia HD300A and HD300D users,

As you may have noticed, from this morning (Dec, 18, 2009), you have encountered "Can't Play Media" problem for PPS.

As your local agent,we would like explain about this problem.

Firstly, If you can read Chinese, this is official announcement from PPS.tv today:

  2009年9月4日,上海众源网络有限公司(下称:众源网络)针对部分电视机厂商未经上海众源网络有限公司公司授权,擅自对外宣传能使用PPStream软件在线观看作为卖点进行互联网电视的生产、销售和宣传的侵权行为发表了严正声明。近期发现仍有非PC终端的硬件集成或服务提供商继续以能看PPS网络电视为其卖点做大面积宣传,对此众源网络发表郑重声明:

  一, 众源网络没有授权任何硬件厂商,生产销售具有PPStream互联网数字电视功能的硬件产品,上海众源网络有限公司也不会对此类产品进行任何的服务支持,。由于未得到众源网络的授权,此类产品无法使用PPStream的任何服务。所有打着PPStream旗号进行销售的公司是为其一己之私而不顾消费者的利益,PPStream严厉谴责此类行为。

  二, 任何非PC终端的硬件集成或服务提供商,不得擅自将PPStream客户端软件移植、嵌入或以其它方式用于通过互联网连接电视机或机顶盒等电子产品向电视机终端用户提供视听节目服务,包含但不限于使用PPStream的海报,图片等服务。

  三, 对于擅自使用PPStream软件或内容的非PC终端厂商,众源网络已经启动法律诉讼程序,此类厂商必须停止宣传,删除相关功能,拒不配合的将承担更严重的法律责任。

  四, 2009年12月18日以前,上海众源网络有限公司将对ppstream软件进行强制升级,以屏蔽未经授权的非PC终端厂商的擅自使用PPStream服务的行为。已经购买此类产品的消费者可依《消费者权益保护法》维护自身权利。

  五, 上海众源网络有限公司,是PPStream软件的唯一合法的拥有者,除本公司外,所有以PPStream名义进行硬件集成、产品销售、在线服务的厂商均为假冒,请有关各界切勿相信,以防遭受不必要的损失。

  最后敬告消费者,切勿购买类似产品,以防蒙受损失。如发现类似产品或宣传,请直接投诉至:tousu@ppstream.com。上海众源网络有限公司将透过法律手段,确保贵我双方的权益,谢谢!

上海众源网络有限公司

We have contacted HiMedia and PPS in the first time today, PPS and HiMedia told us: Recently they found many unauthorized media players to take advantage of PPS Client Program, in order to protect the rights and interest of authorized PPS Media Player,such as HiMedia Players, PPS decided to upgrade their PPS Client Program and stop PPS service for all the media players first, then issue new version of PPS Client Program ONLY to authorized Media Player, For your information, We have confirmed with PPS and HiMedia,HiMedia Media Players are authorized media players

So it will take some time for PPS to issue new client program to HiMedia and for HiMedia to integrate it to their next version firmware.

We kindly seek your understanding and patience.

We will keep all of you updated with the latest PPS status.

Once again thanks for your support!

Best regards

I bought the player on 17 Dec (Thurs) and is able to access PPS (a pin to scroll through 120+ page to find the serial). I did not switch it off for fear of having to scroll through the entire 120+ pages again. I am still able to access PPS last night so I am wondering if is a firmware thingy or I am just lucky?

Hi,

Called Micheal just now and he said got enough stock for 300a. Plan to visit him and c t stuff.

Here is a side track; I got a R668 during the sitex and discovered that it only support 720p & 1080p on componet and HDMI, which it can't play on my CRT TV. Only manage to show on monitor after using a converter.

Thinking to let go at s$85. Those who's interested PM me. Everything remain as close to new.(although wrapper opened already..still consider new mah..) The HDMI cable which came with the set has gave to my cousin. I replaced with another HDMI cable. The set with the original receipt also. A pic is shown.

Hello guys,

Would like to check:

1. When you stream BD (abt 40GB movie) from network drive (NAS), is the playback smooth?

2. When playback audio, how to make it plays all the files within the folder?

Thanks.
