First what country are you in? Because I see that sent from my IPhone is in spanish. I ask what country you're in because well at least in Central America things are a bit quite a bit behind. Also models maybe different.

How nice is this, making it also available to things over the net which it seems I can also stream if I wish too.

I think you meant to say Integrated Amp? Well actually we’re talking Surround-Sound receivers here.
I have a Denon AVR-X3400H and I bought this a couple of months before the arrival of the Denon AVR-X3500H.
As far as I know there are 2 main differences and whether you think these difference make the AVRX-3500H worth buying is a question that only you can answer.
I myself wish I could have waited the extra months. Unfortunately at the time I needed to replace my then AVR-2113 urgently as the whole device had crashed after an attempted firmware update and couldn’t be recovered.
So it was a clear choice for me at the time because everything in my lounge pretty much relies on the Surround-Sound receiver to function, replace the Receiver or go without Entertainment in the lounge.
Anyway back to the 2 choices you have outlined.
The AVR-X3500H has a Fono input stage and is Airplay II compatible.

accessible software for making video dvds?

goshawk on horseback
 

hello all,
does anyone know of any really accessible software for making standard video dvds? in other words, ones that will play in a standard dvd player.
as I have some downloaded tv series in video format, that I would like to make standard dvds out of, and some other video files that I would like to make a dvd from.
ideally, the software should be able to work with a range of video file formats, but I do have a video format converter program if this is not possible.
I'm using win7 ultimate 64bit, and either window-eyes or nvda.

Re: Reading Olympus DM70 filenames on a Mac

Well again I can only speak from my experience.
I Don’t know the particular recorder unit in question but I do know that on all the Olympus recorders I’ve had I have had no problem win removing the card and inserting the card into a Mac, Pc or whatever and retrieving the files for editing etc from there.
As you rightly say you have to set the recorder to use the SD card as memory before you start or copy from the internal to the SD card memory if the recording has already been made.

Depending on the class and speed of the Micro SD Card, there can be delays after record starts, meaning initial audio can be lost. Also, it is a significant battery drain if the unit is left in sleep for a period of time when storage is set to SD..

Of course, the other obvious problem is that you need to use a Micro SD to SD converter, to access the files, introducing further fuss.

If your machine has a SD Card slot then why not remove the SD card from the DM720 and insert it directly into the Mac machine so you can browse the files directly from there, may save quite a bit of time.

Re: Reading Olympus DM70 filenames on a Mac

Hi,

Accessing files does work on the Mac.

After hearing "PC Connection" you need to press the round enter button and it should show the DM 720 as an external USB drive.

If that doesn't work, go into the menus on the 720 and under system or device you should find details of the USB connection.

If still stuck, let me know and I'll dig out my machine and give more details.

Good luck
Tim

Re: airfoil for pc, is it accessible with nvda?

Yes that’s one way. The other way is to remember where the buttons are situated with regard to other items in the App. There are sliders - accessible - to adjust output volume for devices and so on so once you know the layout its Childs play.
