Remote usage for folders

Pros: To the guys who say if you select a folder it autoplays the first file in the folder: instead of pressing the Select/OK button, press the RIGHT arrow and you will go into the folder without autoplaying anything. Just FYI.

Cons: see older review.

Great Media Player

Pros: Plays everything that it says it'll play. Had problems with a Divx DVD player but this player plays those files without problems. Easy Interface. Nice remote and nice that the remote snaps to the bottom of the player for easy transport. Interface is simple and easy to understand. Will also play slideshows of Jpegs and if you have and mp3 file in that folder it plays the music at the same time. I have a SDTV so I can't speak on the HDMI and upscaling stuff.

Cons: Comes formatted in FAT32 so you have to format it to NTFS to get the full 500gigs. A little hum but not much more than the DVR I have that sits beside it. Doesn't play quicktime or .mp4 or .h264 doesn't claim to but it would be nice. Would have given 5 of 5 if it did.

Overall Review: To the guy who says if you select the folder, it plays the first thing in the folder: Instead of pressing play/select on the folder, press the RIGHT ARROW and you will go into the folder without playing. That's in the manual. That's also a nice feature, if you have a bunch of small files in one folder just press play and it will play the entire contents of the folder.
