Supported Players

Postby admin » Mon Feb 23, 2009 6:08 pm

I'd like to compile a list of players that are known to work with SwissCenter. Please could everyone post the players that they are using (if they have not already been posted) and possibly a few comments on how well SC works on them?

I'll update this list as we people post their experiences:

Players that work

Older Chipsets - Supports SD formats only with some internet radio
IO-Data Avel Linkplayer2
Netgear EVA700
Neuston Maestro M-500
Pinnacle Showcenter 1000/1000g
Pinnacle Showcenter 200
Pinnacle Showcenter 250
Transgear DVX 500E
Viewsonic HDMR-2000

PCH 100 Series - Supports HD formats (mkv) and Apple Trailers, YouTube.
HDX-900 NMT Player (Original firmware)
HDX-900 NMT Player (Popcorn A100 firmware)
HDX-1000
ISTAR HD mini 1.3
Popcorn Hour A100/A110

PCH 200 Series - Same as PCH 100 Series but also capable of Flash interface (in development)
Popcorn Hour A200/A210
Popcorn Hour C200


Players that might work (but have not been tested)

Linksys (Cicso) Kiss 1600


Players that have been tried and do NOT work.

IO-Data Avel Linkplayer2 DLNA - I have 2

and I noted that in the latest ubuntu it works like a dream.
I have an ubuntu touchscreen on my network and it acts like a mobile video player with SC. To clarify, I mean ubuntu as a client.

Hi Rob,

I might be worthwhile to increase the scope of the players list with server types (hardware and firmware/OS/server/PHP-version) to see which combinations work and which are not advisable.

Just a thought … :whistle:

Klass - I agree, but I'll start a second thread for server configurations (as any player that works with one server config should work with any other server).

Neuston Maestro M-500 no real problems to report

HDX-900 (flashed to Popcorn Hour A-100). I became tired of waiting for HDX to update the firmware so I flashed with the A-100 Jan firmware release. It also worked fine with Swisscenter when it was an HDX-900.

Using a Transgear DVX 500E. Drawback of this player is that it doesn't have a home button :) Other than that it works fine. Even though it's a 5-6 year old player it plays all formats without problems, execpt the high def stuff.

May be a good idea to list units that dont work as well
nice to have a list that all work but you dont know the faults with other players.
Pinnacle Showcenter 1000/1000g works Perfect
Pinnacle Showcenter 200 Works Perfect
Netgear MP101. I have never got the player to connect to to Swisscenter software, from first release till now. I have to use TwonkeyVision to connect
Many thx for this stunning FREE sotfware if you have a very fast internet connection for downloading TV series its getting close to having sky plus

Netgear MP101. I have never got the player to connect to to Swisscenter software, from first release till now. I have to use TwonkeyVision to connect

The MP101 is a music player only and since it doesn't have any video capabilities then it provides no way of navigating SwissCenter menus.

Hi, I can just confirm what you already know, that my ShowCenter 1000 works great with SwissCenter/Simese.

But as I've posted in the recent past, the new Beta 2.5... would not work at all so I had to go back to v1.47.

Hello,

I just created an account to let you know about another player that works with Swiss Center.

I've gotten my Viewsonic HDMR-2000 to work with your software. It's a huge improvement over the software the hardware came packaged with.

Thank you!
