According to useless_57 in the above thread, it does not play x264 encoded files.

Not sure why they show the package coming with component A/V leads when it has an HDMI output?

OK, so you can arguably pay a bit more for something better, and a lot of TVs have similar functionality built-in, but not all do - so could be useful for some people. At a tenner delivered, looks to be pretty cheap (and as it's not coming from China, at least you get a UK power lead).

With 10.1% TCB available, this effectively brings the price down to just £8.99.

Yep - just for clarification, this is a MEDIA PLAYER that plugs into your TV and you can play media files (pics, audio, video) from a USB flash drive or an SD card. It's NOT for streaming media or for connecting your mobile phone / other device.

Fair enough then! Bargain for the simplicity of plug/play.

If one were really strapped for cash or couldn't wait for delivery this could probably be done with some freeware by re-encoding the file via an upscaling setting.

Sorry, I'm no expert in the field but I think you're missing the point of what this device does. It allows you to play media files from a USB flash drive or SD card on any TV / monitor that has an HDMI input (although as I said originally, I'm not sure why the image shows component A/V leads - you can only see one end of the leads so I don't know whether they have the same connections on the other side and whether the media player supports this type of connection - ie for really old TVs that don't have an HDMI input).

Hi, no not missing the point, I understand that this is intended for 'upscaling' smaller screen resolution content (lets say 720) to full 1080 - the device/storage capacity is irrelevant to my last comment.

Yeah, upscaling is one of the features of this media player, but the basic premise of the device is this:
I've got video files on a USB flash drive.
I've got a TV with an HDMI input.
I want to be able to watch my video files on my TV (whether "upscaled" or not).
You originally stated "If one were really strapped for cash or couldn't wait for delivery this could probably be done with some freeware by re-encoding the file via an upscaling setting".
But no amount of re-encoding will allow me to plug my USB drive into my HDMI port so this can't be seen as an alternative to buying this device, which is what you seemed to be implying (or it's cetainly how your post reads).

Anyway, I think we've managed to clear up any confusion. 8)

In that case wouldn't it be cheaper to connect a laptop or PC with the card/USB plugged in to the TV via VGA? Or if no VGA port, then VGA to Scart?

I dare say there are numerous possibilities but I don't have a laptop and my PC is a long way off my TV (plus this device will allow me to watch video files on my TV without having to boot up and leave my PC running all the time) - which is why I've ordered one.

At the end of the day, it's horses for courses and this looks to suit my needs (and possibly others too). ;)

How did this work out ?

Was it OK? Is the user interface OK for kids to use ?

Pretty pleased with the picture quality and it's fairly straightforward to use (which is just as well, given the usual "pigeon-English" instructions!!!). The remote control isn't terribly responsive and you have to hold it quite close, but all-in-all you can't grumble for a tenner. :)
