No, im not talking about the headphone port(It's fine though). Hooking up the playbook to my denon with hdmi is beyond cool. I know you couldx do the same with a number of other devices, but playing .wav's of poets of the fall is surreal! Share your media expierences.
I too have been very pleasantly surprised. I've had the PB hooked up to my Onkyo 7.1 receiver, which in turn spits HD out to a 50" plasma. Sound is stunning & with HD content the picture quality isn't bad - even on such a big screen.
If RIM enable USB OTG (fingers crossed!!) I plan on transferring a load of films/music to USB sticks & using the Playbook as a media centre hooked up to the 19" HDTV in the caravan. I know my favourite caravan site has a wi-fi hotspot so if I'm in range I'll be able to get video on demand too!
HDMI in the car would be nice but I don't need it. My car has a USB port in the glovebox & the stereo will read audio files from phones, flash drives etc... I haven't plugged the PB in to it yet though.
I for one have personally been lazy and not bought a Mini HDMI cable. BUT..I have a Blackberry bluetooth reciever connected to my Sony 5.1 Home Theatre System and by GOD... this baby blows quality sounsd through bluetooth. The clarity is impeccable! I was blown away by that. And I can have the PB more than 30 metres away and it still conncted to the bluetooth perfectly. I must say mybiphone and BB handset did not hold on that far. Awesome work RIM...
What kind of audio player app are you using ? I have tried the stock one of course and its pretty good , although I haven't figured out how to move tunes up or down within the single playlist it allows ...
I upgraded to beta and tried winamp , which was quite buggy (not sure which version I tried) and it failed to read the meta-tags for the artists.
Can anyone recommend a working audio-player that has things like adjustable playlists , equalizer and possibly streaming audio capability ?
Thanks in advance.
Here's an example android music app that is the kind of thing I'm talking about:
IMHO I would expect nothing but an industry leading mulimedia experience by BB 10, if not sooner. Explore the following link below and have a better understanding as to why your ears.......and eyes are exploring so much multimedia pleasure. I for one was blown away by the multimedia experience on PB , powered by QNX. More and more QNX intergration on the horizons IMHO ofcourse.
