    Default Compare Patriot vs. HornetTek Phantom

    Ok first off this was a box that I found after I already purchased the HornetTek Phantom MP-2020. My question is since they are very much alike, how do they compare to one another? Also if they play the same files how well do they play
    M2TS File (.m2ts) files. Thank you

    They don't compare, Phantom is a clone (i.e. exact hardware) with interchangeable firmwares. So just flash with whatever firmware available for the PBO and you should be fine.

    The main differences between the 2 available right now are:

    1. No rebate for HornetTek.
    2. Older firmware (P01/P02) and bootcode (16) on HornetTek.

    Default which would be best???

    Which FW should I use for my HornetTek? Also I DL a full blu-ray movie and removed the main part of the movie. VLC and my Hornttek plays it in a language other than english but Total media theatre plays the audio in engish. What can I do to change(fix) that so it will be in engish? Any and all help would be great. Thank you

    Try P61 bootcode neutral, or any firmware for bc16.

    Have you tried pressing the "Audio" button while the file is running on your PBO.
    Also I think you can re-order the audio tracks (make English the first one) using whatever software you edit the bluray image with.
