I have made these requests a while back and sadly they weren't implemented in V4, so I'll list them here again, just in case they were forgotten... :)

1) Please display the network path for each title in the MyMovies app. This is crucial to know on which server each title leaves, so we can switch it on if necessary.
2) I understand that WOL isn't possible from the MyMovies app, but if it was, it would be great if we could implement it. It would make the above less necessary.
3) Please give us an option to set the app so that when there is only one disc that is online for a title, it plays directly instead of asking which disk we want to play (ignore offline disks). It's really annoying to have to select a disk unnecessarily. I have had to delete the unused discs on all my 3D and UHD Blurays (those I play most often) and lock these titles, which means that I can't contribute to the database anymore for these titles. It would be great if we could get this "ignore offline titles" option, so that I don't have to do the same for all my blurays as well. From now, on when I get a new disc, I'll contribute the data only for the main disc I use for playback, given that I can't keep the others. There is no point wasting time contributing the disc ID, chapter info etc for the other discs, which is very time consuming, if I have to delete them anyway, as can't keep the info for my own use.

Thanks for considering these changes (ideally before V5)!

Hopefully, I'll be able to unlock and update my 3D and UHD Blurays soon to get the unused discs back and start to contribute again for all the discs!

Any chance to get a reply regarding these requests? Thanks!

Is anyone reading these forums or is development stopped for the iOS app?

I'd also like to add one more request to the first post, which is the possibility to select the default playback mode (full or BD lite). There doesn't seem to be a way to select a default playback mode in the Dune settings, you can only select it when you select a title manually in the Dune interface.

Being able to set a default playback mode in the app would be nice, as there are bugs in some Dune models that are only present when playing full menus. Playing BD Lite by default would allow to avoid these bugs when we don't need access to extras/episodes/alternate versions.

Also unfortunately the trick of deleting the non-used discs in the local database doesn't work as the app seems to use the communal online info for these titles, not the info saved on the local server. Obviously it's not an option to delete the discs on the main database, especially if the disc info has been provided or if the disc is locked.

So to sum it up, please could we have the following features implemented:

- If WOL can't be implemented, please could you display the full network path somewhere, so we know which server needs to be switched on in order to playback a specific title?
- Option to play only online titles, so that a choice between discs is not offered if only one disc can be played
- Option to select the default playback mode (full BD menus or BD Lite/main movie only) in the app (with three choices: Full Menus, BD Lite, Always Ask)

Thanks for considering these!

Hi,

It is not always we reply to feature requests when busy - but we are certainly very much still developing.

But unfortunately, I do not think that there will be priority in the things mentioned here, as our statistics shows that remote play, and the things involving media players are used by a very, very small percentage of the users - therefore our resources are better spend on functionality that will help the majority of users.
