Stand-Alone Player/Device Links plus Chip-Set Information

Chip-Set Information Links
Just wondered whether it might be useful to have a "sticky" linking to the various chip-set information threads we have in this section of the forum.....

Listed in alphabetical order

ESS chip-set Information - For Std-Def Devices

MediaTek chip-set (MT1389xx) Information - For Std-Def Devices

Sigma chip-set Information - For Std-Def Devices

Sigma chip-set Information - For High-Def Devices

Zoran chip-set Information - For Std-Def Devices


Confused about MPEG-4 Stand Alone Players/Devices?
If so, take a look at the Stand-alone MPEG-4 (DivX, XviD...) Player Buyers Guide


Nero Digital Certified Devices
Fancy and stand-alone player that offers NeroDigital Certification. Then look here.


Media Streaming Devices
Or, if you're after a smaller device without an DVD drive but with network capability. Then look here.


Cheers

You mentioned the Xoro 4000 to have a ESS Vibratto II Device.
But as Xoro 4000 is the same as Siemssen 5000ND it should have a Zoran Device.

Hi ffreese,

Do you have one of these players yourself?


Cheers

I had the Siemssen SCO 5000 ND - but I returned it because of a bad loader.

Actually I own the Xoro 4000 and the Tevion 6000, which also is a Siemssen SCO 5000 ND clone.

U can find pictures taken of an open Xoro 4000 with Zoran here: http://www.dvdboard.de/forum/showthr...threadid=87158

Frank

Thank you very much Frank

I've amended my chip-set information. And in my NeroDigital Certified Device Information and Links thread, I've included the DVDBoard.de forum link you provided.

May I ask what you think about the player. And how well does it perform with NeroDigital encodes (in .MP4)?


Cheers

ND is the main reason, why I bought those players. As the three players are from the same factory, there are no differences in the behaviour between them.

There seem to be problems with some loaders - that was the reason, why I returned one player. Now I have two players with good loaders (fast, quiet).

All players play ND standard profile and also cinema profile (up the full pal resolution - 720 x 576) with AAC audio 5.1. Up to two sound tracks und two subtile tracks are supportet. I use this profile to back up my stargate dvdīs - with about 640k / 42mins they are damn near to dvd

Also chapters are supported by the players. I have 7 films on one dvd/r /rw. The players need about 30 seconds to scan a file after starting it. The seem to read the chapters. After this, the film starts and you can jump fast between the chapter points.

If you change audio or subtitles the player stops for half a second and restarts at the point you changed.

I have one player on a 16/9 tv - the playback of 16/9 in 720x576 is fantastic.
The other player is on a 4/3 tv - playback of the same files produces "eggheads". Does any one know, how to set DAR/PAR properly the ND-.MP4-files?

I also tested kiss players and buffalo link theatre - but both players didnīt play ND .p4īs ... So for ND the Xoro 4000 is at this time the best player avaylable. Does anyone know anything about the upcoming PackardBell DVD DIVX 450 pro? This player is not sold here in germany. It would be interesting, if this player uses the same hardware-platform as XORO/Siemssen/Tevion or if it is a different one. The Packard Bell is sold in Belgium and France.

Regards,

Frank

Thanks again for providing such detailed information about the three players. I was not aware they are all manufactured at the same factory!

I have to say, I prefer the XORO's design... so it's just as well the build quality is slightly better than the Tevion and Siemssen

Can you try the following "video only" samples with your players. They all contain AR signalling: -

4:3 AR Signalling ITU601 Test Encodes in .MP4 and .AVI Containers.

16:9 AR Signalling ITU601 Test Encodes in .MP4 and .AVI Containers.


Cheers

So it's working the other way around now?

All the encodes correctly AR in software (as you have Recode2 you can try them in Nero's ShowTime2 player).

Do any of the stand-alone players offer "4:3 and 16:9 TV output" settings?


Cheers

The Players are REALLY the same - the whole setup and look&feel is absolutely identical. If you only see playerīs output, you couldīt say, what player it is.

Every player has the tv-settings in the firmware (16/9, 4/3 PS & 4/3 LB). Those settings work fine for DVDīs but (on 4/4 TVs) not for ND. I aked Xoro to fix that bug.

I guess it might be worth trying some .MP4 encodes with the 4:3 and 16:9 signalling stored at the container level (and not just the video stream).... I doubt it will do anything... but you never know!

I will encode some samples and make them available for download


Cheers

EDIT: Okay I've generated a whole load of new PAL 720x576 MPEG-4/SP encodes (NTSC to follow) with AR signalling. All of which can be found here.

Thank you. Still no success on Xoro 4000 on 4/3 tv with 16/9 AR. Not with 16/9 flag in video stream nor with 16/9 flag at container level.

Anyway - great test files! Anyone developing DVD-players or firmwares should use them for testing! THANK YOU.

How bizarre... provided the player is set to 4:3 TV output, the 16:9 image should look perfect on your 4:3 TV


Cheers

Hi guys, what about the Sunplus chipset?
I was looking to buy a RJ TECH RJ-700DVX, but found very little info about this player beside that it use the Sunplus chipset and found even less info about the later. Got some light to shine on this?
