I am also having this problem viewing a vob file >4gb on my PS3. Not sure if the 1.05 firmware fixed the problem?

No such luck.  I upgraded from 1.04 to 1.05, refreshed the  UPnP catalog, and the behavior is unchanged.  The upnpav.db is still being created/updated with the wrong Filesize for files larger than 4GB.

From the OP (me)
The 4gb problem has not been solved, but...
If you are trying to rip your DVD collection to store the video on the dns-323,
and use the media player dsm-520 to play files off the dns-323,
(where I discovered the 4gb problem), I found a solution that works for me.

I use DVDFab Platinum  to rip my DVD's, selecting "ipod" on the front menu.
Then, in ipod "config" menu, I select "ipod mpeg4" from the drop down.
Then change the "bitrate" to 2000, the "frame res" to 720x(whatever),
and I usually change the "volume%" to 150.

Ripping your dvd collection that way will give a very good quality video file thats under 4gb in size (well under 4gb).
And the screen fills a widescreen tv very nicely.
This is a .mp4 video file that the media player LOVES and plays smoothly. I also only use a wired networked connection, not wireless.
But you can try wireless. Wireless gave me stuttering some times. Wired plays the file smoothly.

Thats the work-around I use to resolve the 4gb limit (for my needs).
But it would be nice to see the 4gb limit issue resolved by dlink tech.

I am very sorry but I do not have any details for this in this department. I would recommend using some type of compression when recoding files you should not get files over 4 GB.

Testing should be easy. Do a backup of a video source and set the size more than 4GB.
Try playing the file from the DNS323. Is this so hard to do?

For me this issue is not so important right now but it will be in a few weeks when I'll move my HD video camera recordings to the DNS323.
I often work with files that are between 4GB-8GB.

If this is a bug please test and confirm it.

I'm afraid this is not the answer we're expecting from the DNS323 support team.

Thank you!

To me, their reply seems to indicate that it's not a high priority and/or it's difficult to fix.

ECF,
Are you saying you can't talk to other groups within the company to check on the status of a known problem? 

The last thing I want to do is turn my HD content into DVD quality.  Please fix this issue.

I am waiting for an answer I do not have details at this time

If recoding your HD DVDs using .h264 and .mkv and other HD formats it will not be DVD quality it will remain HD quality. .ts is a bloated uncompressed format if you are just copying the DVD files to your DNS-323. Recoding your files will save you much space on your unit for more videos as well. I would not recommend using .ts

How to you keep the menus and other "special features" if you are proposing to transcode DVDs to another format?

ECF,

a) I am using .mpg not .ts files so the extra stream bloat is already gone. 
b) I don't believe the DNS-323 would even serve up a .ts via UPnP, nor would a DSM-510 play one.
b) .ts streams are mpeg-2 compressed.  True, .ts might have multiple streams which may not be wanted/used, But I already took care of that (see a.)
c) Even if .h264 achieves 3x compression compared to Mpeg-2, anything over X time length is still going to be > 4GB and will get zapped by the bug.
d) I am not concerned about space.
e) I can use one of my other systems as a UPnP server.
f) Do I really have all the time in the world to transcode files that play perfectly fine from other UPnP servers?
[/rant]

All I want is  for ALL my media to be served up, AS-IS, from the DNS-323 so I can shut my power grubbing PC down.  The product page at http://www.dlink.com/products/?sec=0&pid=509 so nicely puts it as "This feature is highly convenient as it allows you to turn off a computer that would normally be needed for the same function.")

Cheers!

I understand, This issue is being looked into I have not gotten any details on it as of right now though.

We are talking about the UPnP AV media server of the DNS-323 which does not support the menu functions.

Any way to get an ETA from Development on a fix for this?

The following FAQ should be updated to state "as long as you use files < 4GB in size"
