now menu display feature seems available (i might be wrong). if you purchase through taobao, you can ask them to add in full BD-Menu display function by indicating the need in the remarks before you place order. this is what i read from the update on 10/24. shop name is 海美迪旗舰店, if this is true, guess we can also activate the feature by our own.

Yep... Based on the Chinese wordings, it does translate into bluray navigation menu. That will be awesome. Egreat A5/A10 just kena dethroned as the most versatile media players considering their main attraction (feature) lies with its full bluray menu navigation. If Himedia Q10 Pro can deliver that as well at a much attractive price. This is indeed the most VFM media players from MIC at the moment.

Hurry up and grab it...

Yep...usually the difference is the HDMI ports (single vs dual), extra USB 3.0 port or more likely the HDD enclosure or the lack of it otherwise, the hardware, components and specs used for most media players all the same. BTW don't be fooled by the use of audiophile DAC chipset to mark up the price...first and foremost, I have mentioned it numerous times in the past and I'm gonna say it again...if one truly cares about audiophile grade sound performance, one SHOULD NOT even be considering using media player as a transport or a dedicated music streamer in the first place.

Well said and in addition ... not as a gaming monster too.

Received my box last night .. comes with android 7.

I saw play store and YouTube preinstalled. I suppose this is international version?

I dont understand how kodi works? Any kind soul can provide some instructions? I don't see any option to use the nice album browsing view with movie poster :(
