Below is the information for "non-ATV" models of Dune HD media players which do not have Android TV certification.
The main purpose of non-ATV Dune HD media players is playback of high-end audio/video content from local sources (HDD or NAS) with the best possible quality and convenience, using the preintegrated and optimized built-in software, which is available "out-of-the-box", w/o the need to install and configure any apps.
In these non-ATV media players, support for Android apps and streaming services is only an additional extra function. Many Android apps and streaming services work, but some apps may not work or may have limited functions, because of various reasons, such as: licensing restrictions, technical incompatibilities, apps not optimized for the hardware/software platform used by non-ATV Dune HD media players. We try to improve compatibility with various apps / services as much as possible, but this is possible not in all cases.
In some aspects, non-ATV Dune HD media players actually try to provide advanced support for Android apps and streaming services (which is often absent on other Android media players). For example, among media players based on the superb Realtek RTD1619DR media processor, Dune HD media players are the only products with automatic framerate/resolution matching function supported for Android apps and optimized in special ways (such as: prevent video mode switching when video plays in a preview window). Also Dune HD media players have an unique integration of links to content from selected streaming services directly into the main menu of the media player (see New GUI).
If you want a guaranteed and best possible support for various Android apps and streaming services, use an AndroidTV/Netflix-certified media player.
