I have unfortunately run into my first problem with this unit. There's no Cube subforum so I'll post my problem in my thread and hope somebody can help me out.
I finally purchased a mini-HDMI to HDMI adapter so I can use the HDMI out function on this player. I plugged the adapter into the device and the HDMI cable into the adapter and television. I then selected HDMI as my TV format and selected TV as the Output Select, and the Cube's screen turned off as if the television was about to be used, but no picture showed up on my TV. Instead, my TV displayed the message "Mode Not Supported". Any idea on what is going on here? My HDMI cable works fine, and the HDMI input works fine. My TV supports 1080p. I can't imagine the mini-HDMI adapter has a problem. I am afraid that my Cube has the same problem I read about with the Ainol 8000 series where the HDMI would only output PAL instead of NTSC and therefore was not useable in North America for TV out. I don't see any options for resolution or PAL/NTSC type in the settings. I can only choose HD component, HDMI, and Composite PAL. The fact that there is a "composite PAL" option increases my fears.
Any help? Do I simply need to update firmware or something? Where can I get firmware upgrades for this player?
looks good glad that you purchased it now - a few questions
1)can it be operated by remote controller when outputting to TV easily ?
I haven't been able to test this yet due to the fact that I can't get it to output HDMI to my TV. See what I wrote above.
2)does it allow for ext subtitles [.srt,.sub/.idx,.smi ] to be displayed from files usually AVi/MKV - any issues displaying subs from mkv/avi/mp4 files if you noticed...?
I don't have any video files with external subtitles, but I'd be willing to test one if you can upload a sample video with subtitle for me to download.
3)can it also allow you to select audio from multi-audio file streams in MKV/mp4 files ?
I don't have any multi-track files on my Cube, but I see an option to select track while playing a video. Again, I'd be willing to test a sample for you.
4)can it be operated [viewing movie ,listening to audio etc] when connected wall outlet via usb-charger at the same time ?
Yes. If it's plugged into a USB wall-charger, you can still use it at full functionality. Same goes for the DC charger that came with my unit. However, if you connect your Cube to a PC to charge, it automatically becomes a USB mass-storage device and CANNOT be used to play videos/songs at the same time.
