I still have and use 3 WD TV's in my home. I have a single 4K TV that I wanted to watch UHD H.265 HEVC files with to take advantage, plus I have 7.1 surround. I kind of hate the Android TV boxes because either the interface is too bogged down with streaming apps (My TV already has them all) or the image quality isn't great in 4K or the surround sound can't do the true 7.1 Atomos conversion.
This device is exactly what I was looking for. The HDMI transfers the sound perfectly as a Pass-through and the picture quality is true 4K beautiful on all of my test files so far. If all you want is a media player with a no fuss interface and plays pretty much everything, this is it.
EDIT: One star removed after using it for 2 weeks. The subtitles are automatically always on. The worst is embedded subtitles within .MKV files and sometimes you cannot turn them off. Hopefully a firmware update can fix this, but it's not likely (they will probably just make a new model).
Mostly, it's a fantastic simple player still for 90% of the usage.
Update: was 5 stars, now 4, we did buy a second unit for travel and it died tonight. Or more accurately, it became the living dead with no signal being sent and the blue “on” light unable to turn off. I hope it was just a minor bad wire, but now I’m not as jazzed.
I have 2 TBs on a powered 8 TB hd, and this machine reads everything! Idk what others are writing about scrubbing fwd or back, it’s super easy. The captions are easily turned on/off as well. The remote can also control the TV ( just 5 buttons, I mapped them to power, volume +/-, channel + and input). Blamo! Universal remote! Now we can take the player & hd on road trips and it’s our entire library!
I purchased this unit because our Smart TV would randomly turn itself off when reading the 8 TB hd. Problem solved.
I was contemplating a Raspberry Pi 4 as our home/road theater device, but this one is so easy to setup, navigate and operate that I just can’t justify the extra $$ and tinker-time for the pi. We plan on buying a second unit to travel with (as well as a portable hd) to skip the few steps of unplugging & packing, but that feels almost too decadent!
I wanted to like this product. It's a great size, plays all the formats that I need, easy enough to use.... BUT THE UNIT DOES NOT POWER DOWN when you press the power button. It kind of 'goes to sleep', sort of... what this means is that if you have a HDMI switch (or similar) the switch will not automatically switch to another input source when you 'power off' this unit. This is extremely aggravating as the point of the switch is to be able to use multiple HDMI input devices (satellite box, video games, etc.) WITHOUT having to do anything special like cycle through the input channels on the TV... it's nice to be able to turn on the media player and it automatically come up on the TV, then turn on the satellite and it do the same, turn on a video game console and it automatically display... and so on and so forth... THIS UNIT will not allow that. Once this media player is powered on, the HDMI switch is 'stuck' on the media player input until you physically unplug the media player power, or cycle through the switch manually. Another far worse drawback to this behavior is that the media player DOES NOT STOP READING your USB device (thumb drive, hard drive, etc.) so if you unplug your USB device without removing power from the media player you can corrupt your entire hard drive!!! I'm not sure how MYPIN didn't see this as an issue. I suppose in their minds this would be the only device you'd ever use on your TV, and that you'll never need to remove your USB device to add new content !?!?!
For these reasons, I would STRONGLY advise against this product. I guess I'll revert back to my MICCA product and deal with the unsupported file formats, at least the HDMI switch works and the unit powers down so as not to corrupt the hard drive when removed....
Overall a great player however, a player is supposed to be a read only device. I used my 2TB ext HD (NTFS) and it worked well then I plugged it back into my WINXP LAPTOP and it came up Unrecognised Device. Scared the hell out of me. I reset the drive by unpluging it. Got it back but minor misbehavior tells me there is misbehavior going on. Now the entire 2TB drive is suspect as infected. I recommend only using thumb drives that can be erased
This media player is awesome. I have a new Honda Odyssey and really didn’t want to carry a bunch of disc in my car. So I get movies into mp4 format and fit a bunch of movies in a 128GB thumb drive. The media player played all the movies. Sad to say I wish the Honda RES would be a better player. Money well spent cause my kids love it.
I use these units for a few different uses. One is they are an excellent car media player for replacing antique DVD player for rear seat entertainment systems. They also make excellent information kiosk players. They are extremely configurable (options like auto starting a photo sideshow at power on, or playing a video, etc), offer plenty of output options (composite video output for older displays that don’t include HDMI, digital coaxial audio out, HDMI output. The onscreen menus are fast, easy to navigate and very intuitive. Offers lots of media storage options like built in microSD card Slot to keep it compact and self contained, or dual USB ports for connecting massive capacity external Solid state hard drives. What we really like about this unit is that it includes a powerful processor and plays/scales any video format we could throw at it including H.265. Also it Includes a remote IR receiver as standard, so you can hide the unit anywhere and it will pick up the remote signal without having to buy a separate IR repeater. It has an aluminum chassis and does not get burning hot like some other units we have seen. But I think the best thing of all that makes this product stand out from the rest is the company that makes this unit truly does stand behind it with excellent email support which is very responsive and they do provide excellent support for any technical issues.
I'm impressed with the quality of this product. It does everything as advertised, although it might take you a little while to figure it all out: the user manual is pretty much useless. An example: the only mention of the Coax jack is to say that there's a Coax jack. Nothing else. And there's no description of all the options in the on-screen "Settings" menu. The good news: "nice wealth", the seller, is very responsive if you send them a question. I had an issue with DTS and DD audio, and they replied within 12 hours with the answer.
I bought this to replace my old WDTV Live, which was starting to fail. I also wanted a device that could play the newer H265 files, which the WDTV couldn't. The MYPIN seems to handle every video file type you can throw at it, and it does a good job of delivering the correct audio format to my receiver.
The on-screen interface isn't the most elegant, but that doesn't really matter. Bottom line is that it works, and it works very well. Provided you can navigate the user manual. :)
The Mypin was a pleasant surprise, I am using it on a 1080p TV with a combination of FAT32 and NTFS external portable hard drives and USB flash drives ranging from 32GB to 5TB and it handles all with incredible responsiveness. I bought it as an upgrade to a WD TV media player mainly to play X265 videos and MP3 music, I can confirm it plays H.265 and H.264 MKV, MP4 video files extremely well, along with built-in and external subtitles. Greek subtitles are also supported. At $65 this 1 is well worth buying.
There is room for improvement, Mypin should make the following changes in the next version: - get rid of the AV, coax ports and add an SPDIF optical port -Simplify the remote by removing the numeric keypad and TV control buttons, add shortcut buttons for scrolling up and down files 10 at a time -Improve AVI playback, some AVI video files that play on the WDTV didn't play on the Mypin (although 90% of AVI's I tried did play on the Mypin) -Allow for scrolling up from the 1st file in a folder to the last file, right now you can't go from the 1st file up to the last file and when you are dealing with hundreds of files in a folder that can get really annoying.
4.5/5 rating for me.
First off, anyone who is familiar using media players, you would agree that this player is quite adequate to meet all your needs. I have used WD Live media player for years and I must say that the MyPin remote is not as intuitive and need getting used to. The instructions for MyPin is not helpful either. Having used the "Stop, Pause, Play, Fast Forward/Reverse" buttons on the WD remote, I find the MyPin not as functional. Although there are other buttons that will perform similar function, they are not so obvious. Overall, I am satisfied that the MyPin player produces such impressive 4K image, reads H265 files and sold at such an affordable price range. The only complain I have is the continuously blinking light from my external HD even when the MyPin player is turned off.
Set up very quickly and ran a number of video files from a Thumb Drive. Really like it except the buttons and function of the remote can best be described as cryptic. Truly an event of discovery and perfect for the individual with nothing else to do. This device needs a manual. I will discover more attributes over time, I'm sure, and I think from what I've experienced thus far, the frustration will prove to be worthwhile. Really like what I see when good things happen through the remote.
I bought this tiny player as a substitute for having to use my laptop as a source to play video files. This media player reads from my USB exfat formatted harddrive as well as from a exfat formatted micro sd card. The response is quite fast and the quality, (in my opinion) is very good. I connect this device to the television using a HDMI cable, the picture and audio are excellent. The remote is handy and worked flawlessly, in fact, my package included a IR receiver so the player can be located in a cabinet with only the receiver in view. I certainly recommend this product, I am very pleased with this purchase.
