wklie: Those interested in finding out whether a PC can access the files inside MTV3700 may try to google "Magic TV NFS mount" and use google translate. Keep in mind that since HD recordings are encrypted by MTV3700, they cannot be played back on PC.
bfginger: Can anybody confirm that the Magic TV 3700 does not do 576p50 over YPbPr / component?
nigelb999: It's extremely frustrating as I have to sit there constantly turning the volume up and down throughout the whole show. When the commercials starts up it's even louder still!
wklie: New BETA firmware 6.0 beta1 for testing only, may be buggy:
- Support EXPERIMENTAL Network sharing
In Magic TV Gadgets -> Network HDD:
- Use Network HDD will let you play recorded programmes from other MTV3700 running network server on the network. This will slow down the access of Recorded Programmes List due to network access.
- Network HDD Server will run a server to provide recorded programmes to other MTV3700 that uses Network HDD.
- This feature is primarily intended for LAN connection. Although WiFi should work to a certain extent, it is not likely to be fast enough for some programmes with higher bitrate.

As an experimental beta firmware, this firmware may be removed at any time without notice.
BS: So this firmware doesn't inprove the stability of the playback when the transmission has pixalated video, have others had the problem, if the video isn't perfect the player will freeze and fail to pass over some glitches, I have to jump back 10min then play it for a couple and then jump forward 10min to see if I can get past the glitches. it seems strange that other machines just play the bad patches with all the pixalations and just keep going, but not the Magic TV 3700 it seems to need perfect video.
