felixgun Posted July 30, 2010 Report Share Posted July 30, 2010 felixgun - thanks for the reply, but what I meant was, can the Z110BT play .avi files straight from torrents without conversion? Just copy to SD, stick it in, and it plays? And by DVD Menu support, what I mean is can I rip a DVD into AUDIO_TS and VIDEO_TS, then copy those files to SD card, and the Z110BT can play them with full navigation of the DVD menu? With my current setup, I have a WD TV Mini connected to A/V inputs and I control it using its IR remote. It's not entirely convenient, but the WD TV Mini will play DivX and Xvid .avi files right from torrents without any kind of conversion, just copy to flash drive, plug it in, and it plays. WD TV Mini does the same with DVDs when AUDIO_TS and VIDEO_TS are copied to flash drive. I am also able to plug in an external HDD to it full of ripped DVDs and play them individually. It supports DVD Menu so for DVDs of TV shows, I can select the episode I want to watch or use scene selection. I was hoping the Z110BT would have those kinds of features built in. No the .avi files straight from torrent -> straight to SD do not play without conversion.. I personally have tried several (I have lots) just to make sure it wasn't that one .avi, and still nothing. If you rip the AUDIO_TS and VIDEO_TS from a DVD and stick it on an SD nothing will happen (including using the full navigation of the DVD menu which would be awesome). The only time you can use the DVD menu is when you are actually on the DVD input of the Z110bt. Otherwise you have to use the controls on the SD input. The SD file formats are very limited. If you rip the full uncompressed DVD and then convert to one of the "working" formats (according to the manual), it MIGHT work... depending on what tool/program you are using to convert. I also looked at the WD TV Mini and yes all of those features would be awesome in the Z110 but none such features exist. I would get one but then I would have to find a place to put it in my tahoe and i've run out of room behind the dash from all the extra components (HD Radio/MSN Direct/etc) and doesn't look like that would fit in my glove compartment where my iPod touch/USB ipod cable goes. Plus you would have to get an AC/DC converter plugged into your battery/ugly external cigarette lighter charger to plug in to run it for the extra power. How exactly do you have yours set up in your car? Quote Link to post Share on other sites
