I just received my Cinera with FPV yesterday, and have now had a day to test it out There are some very good things, and some bad technical problems.
•The resolution is fantastic when viewing 3-D still photos. This is by far the best compact digital 3-D viewer I have seen so far, with no screendoor or herringbone effect.
•WiFi setup was simple.
•Easily paired the Cinera with a bluetooth speaker and gamepad. Easy to control with either the built in control buttons or the external gamepad.
•The arm is great. Very easy to set up and very comfortable to watch for long periods.
•After factory reset Youtube (2-D) streaming works.
•Netflix streaming works.
•I am able to transfer my own 3-D video files directly to Cinera via USB, and playback works via VLC and MX PLAYER (with aspect ratio properly set to fill screen)
•3-D Playback also works from USB stick and micro SD card.
•3-D Playback of video over HDMI works.
•Able to use AIRSCREEN app to miracast (2-D) from phone to Cinera.
•The left view in my Cinera has a dead pixel (shows up white on black screens). Visible during both android use and HDMI use. Factory reset did not resolve.
•Right view has hot spot in upper left corner, very visible on darker images.
•Synchronzation mismatch between right and left views. They appear to be about 1/120th second out of sync. Very visible on any video with fast motion, paging through menu, etc. This causes temporal 3-D distortions and makes watching both 2-D and 3-D videos difficult. Factory reset did not resolve. Visible in both Android and over HDMI.
•No audio over HDMI. Factory reset did not resolve
•Youtube 3-D does not work properly (known bug)
•3-D mode does not work in AIRSCREEN miracast app.
• FPV does not fit my head properly. Without Cinera it is fine, but with Cinera attached It is too front heavy, slides forward and bears all of the weight on the unpadded nose bridge. I have tried positioning the rods and pads numerous ways, but cannot find any setting where it will stay on my head.
• Use of Google Play for Android TV prevents installing numerous mobile apps including Chrome browser, 3D Steroid Pro, VR Player Pro, etc.
•No support yet for frame-packed 3-D (Blu-ray) or over/under 3-D.
I really want this device to work. I am sure that there will be future firmware and software updates to address playback problems. What should I do about the various hardware issues with my unit?
