Its a cool feature, but I cannot for the life of me think of an instance when I would use it. 99% of conversions, even bluray take no longer than an hour and the disc ejects. Fab will also shut your computer down upon completion, so just for me it would nice to have but I do not think I would use it much.

Simply pandering to the GenXers that are too lazy to get up from the couch, leave their cheetos and Game of Thrones, and check their PC in the next room.

My vacuum cleaner also tells me what its doing via my smartphone. At least that’s relevant information to me.

Just ran a few more tests, but this time, other than only doing conversions in the converter module, I did add some other tasks from the Copy, Ripper, and Creator modules. Here are my new findings:

  1. First, I added a piece of MKV video into the Converter module and set it to convert it for my Nexus 6p, and then I grabbed an ISO (DVD) from my hard drive to copy the main movie only also as an ISO – the Remote app works flawlessly and I can check all the information;

  2. Then, I used the same ISO in the Ripper module to add another task, to convert it to my wife’s Galaxy S6, and the Remote app worked without an issue;

  3. Next, I dragged two pieces of my MKV videos into the Creator module to create a DVD ISO file, immediately after I hit the Start button in that module, (this is exactly when I met my first problem) all the task information on my Nexus phone just silently disappears…:rolleyes:…what was even more stranger was that when I manually cancelled the task in the Creator module, and reconnect the Remote app with DVDFab PC client, the other task information showed up again…:rolleyes:… It looks like there is currently some issues between the Remote app and the Creator module, hope this get fixed soon in the later version. :bigsmile:

Cheers, guys!
