Insulting or praising the devs probably has nothing to do with whether or not a feature gets implemented. Developers don't make these decisions (other than say, "What you've asked for simply cannot be done, either at all or in the time frame or with the resources you've assigned to it."). These decisions are made by the developers bosses. I know as I'm a developer. I don't work on what I would like to work on, I work on what I'm told to work on.
That said, the ability to recognized multiple drives in USB enclosures would be the one new feature I would like to see added in this next (and perhaps final) firmware udpate (if it's ever released). Beyond that, the unit does everything I'm interested in doing and does it well. I'm only interested in a media player that decodes video (particularly Blu-Rays and DVDs ripped to ISO format) with full functionality (all menus, etc.) and either decodes audio or bitstreams it over to my A/V reciever for decoding (including all Blu-Ray and DVD codecs plus stereo and multi-channel FLAC files in a variety of higher resolutions), does it from locally attached eSATA or USB drives and has a functional user interface. For my limited needs, this box rocks. I'm not into streaming video or audio, hooking into a home network of playing oddball video codecs, which this box may or may not do well. That probably puts me in the minority of users, but I'm largely pleased with it.
