This seems like a good product for a great price. Read somewhere that it does not play mkv files though so not sure how to get HD movies on to it?

Not DivxHD or ,mkv

Just regular .avi files, which have high res movie...?

Think HD .avi files are ok by the looks of it. mkv's need to be re-encoded though which is a pain tbh.

looks good but I suspect its the 350 version as there is no mention of the HMDI port (on the 450 only) which I would expect.
Details here
Differences between 450 and 350 here
Datasheet here
Firmware updates here

Useful link on original product (use at your own risk) here also include interesting NDAS software...

Fantastic, support uPnP so it should serve my MusicPal ! Yipee..

ive got 2 of these already , they are brilliant if you want to watch divx/avi/mpeg etc.. but wont play .mkv files..
also if this is the 450 version then it will connect to any DNLa server as well.
#9
Giving it a go....Been after a network media player for a while and for 70quid with built in wireless gotta be worth a shot.....not that bothered about mkv to be honest so no probs there...Thanks

Yep - think you're right with the model. Also appears to be a rebrand of the Mediagate MG-350HD. Deffo no mkv compatability now or in the future.
#11
nice find...final chance to buy from tesco
#12
If I have one of these and connect it to a set of active speakers or a hifi, will it play MP3s? How do you search for a track to play without a screen?
#13
***idiot alert***
so i stick media on the HDD of device and connect to tv via component or whatever
mediaplayer is always on so can access it from any PC on my network at anytime
2 PCs can access it at same time
If i want to play something from a PC i can stream via wireless connection (router nowhere near tv so no etehrnet for me) and wireless is more than enough for dvd quality

what about .iso/vobs?

am i probably better off with one of those 20 quid sumvisions via hdmi with HDD attached if dont need HDD visible on network at all times?

thanks in advance!

what about .iso/vobs?

thanks in advance!


There's this from Tom's Guide...

A DVD drive can be shared on a host computer and it will show up on the MG-350HD and play files- however, Store-bought DVD disks do not play. I tried several different DVDs representing different copy protection strategies. The MG-350HD cannot handle any copy protected DVD disks. Homemade DVD disks that do not contain copy protection such as DVD backups and home movies will play. Also unencrypted VOB files (The file type associated with DVDs) will also play.

Does that help?

hmm i was looking to put either iso or vobs on the device or on external HDD connected to it so i could get rid of (store) my dvds elsewhere and have PC off.
so from what i can make out i cant do that and would need to convert it which is a bit of a hassle (want subtitles to stay) and an extra step.
so yes i think helped, thanks :)
#16
I guess you will have dealt with the copy protection when ripping the .vob files so in theory they should be accessible via the Media Player once unprotected.
#17
This site's costing me a fortune....
#18
Just for those that were interested...Just picked mine up and it is the 450 and not the 350, happy about that as I was considering returning it if it was the 350 without HDMI!
