I’m a new user of you V-Mate. The idea of the product is really great… On the other hand, the product is “not ready for sale” because there is some really annoying things.
1- You can’t use the product without installing the latest firmware. The recording quality is poor and the refreshing is not fast enough. After updating the firmware, the product works well.
2- When you’re watching a video, if you press on STOP, you have to restart the video from the beggining. You can’t fast forward rapidly. To avoid this, it should work like a DVD player :
Pressing the “Fast Forward” button
1 time = 1x fast
2 times = 2x fast
3 times = 4x fast
4 times = 8x fast
5 times = 16x fast
6 times = 1x fast
Then press “Play/Pause” to play the video at normal speed.
3- When recording in full quality, we lose the TV image but not the sound. This is ridiculous! It should return to the “normal” television image.
4- When using the remote control and by pressing on any buttons, an icon corresponding to the button should appear on the TV to confirm that this button was pressed.
5- Sometimes nothing happens when playing a video . There is a blank screen. You have to press “Stop” and “Play” to retry.
6- There should be an option to clear the menu to go back to the TV without powering down the device.
7- It should have a place where we can see the free space on the flash card and an evaluation of the remaining time according to the selected quality.
I hope you will upgrade the current firmware and add those options to your product.
