The remote control has a next button but it does not work even if the file online menus (mkv, BDMV etc) have Next Chapter option.
I don't have this issue with Popcorn remote control.

Guys, you have to more specific with your line of questions...for instance, pls state the type of media files (e.g. BD ISO or MKV, TS, MP4 etc) For the MKV files, it really depends on whether there is any inclusion of the Chapter markers to begin with. NOT all mkv movies comes with embedded chapters. Please hit the Option menu to bring up the left menu and go to Chapters and see if there is any Chapter markers avail. If there is and hitting the Next Chapter doesn't work, report this bug in the Egreat community forum or comment here so that I can consolidate and forward it to Rita of Egreat.

For BDMV and BD ISO file, I have no problem with the chapter functions based on my personal experience with about 7 to 8 BD ISO files I have been playing... But I do agree with you that for Mkv files, its a hit or miss. Due to the different software used for encoding the mkv media files, it becomes hard to find a solution to it. One way is to do remux it using mktoolnix aka mkvmerge utility to add the chapter markers to see if it works. I haven't have the time to do remuxibg these days.

And I also agreed with you that in terms of stability when playback Mkv media, PCH is still the KING!

my A10 arrived today and I'll get a chance to fumble around with it when I get home this evening. my primary use case is to play files that my Oppo 105D can't handle. this would be the 2nd android device that I've ever owned - the first being the Onkyo DP-X1, which is a pretty cool DAP. most of you guys here seem to be very savvy with Android so do share with me some of the essential apk that you guys have installed, to maximise the capabilities of the Egreat. thank you :)

Hi All, may I know anyone here have try to connect and transfer file from window 10 to egreat A10 successfully?

I am able to view egreat in my windows network explorer, however I am not able to access. I have a 4 TB 3.5" HDD attached to A10, both A10 & Win 10 are in the same network, also checked all setting in A10, believe samba setting is tick.

you need to change the audio output setting in your AVR for this to work.  and make sure your TV setting for internal speakers is set appropriately as well.

ARC is to send audio signal from TV to AVR, not the other way round.

have any of you guys experienced the red LED light suddenly go off when the unit is in standby mode? I witnessed this last night. the red LED suddenly went off when the unit was in standby mode. later on it came back but it was flickering on and off. eventually it came back on for good and this morning when I checked, it was still on.

what could this phenomena mean?  :o

There is a possibility that your Egreat media player has been "compromised"...hacked if you are connected to the internet 24/7! Did you ever switch off when not in use?

do you mean the physical switch at the back of the unit? it has been on since I got the unit. i then use the remote control to switch the unit on/ off. do you physically switch it off whenever it is not in use?
