KISS-DP600 - HD Media player - £139.00

Here's a DVD player that will play pretty much anything you throw at it. I was looking at these a few months ago for £250.

I think KISS made these orginally, but they were bought out by Linksys.

will it play x264 (.mkv) files or wmv-hd files without any conversion?

edit: seems it should play wmvHD with an update but no support for divxHD (.mkv) files.

If there is a player that can play mkv files, then I want one!

My media centre PC does, it cost me £500 though ;-)

That being said, I only have a couple of .mkv files on it. I prefer to use DVDShrink to compress my DVDs. It keeps all DVD features intact (menus, chapters..etc).

hey refaey, what tv tuner do you use?

I've got a nova-t-500 dual dvb-t but the dvb-t reception where I am means jerky playback sometimes.

I think i've got a satellite cable coming in to my flat so might try the nova-s plus or perhaps go mental and get the hd version

I've got one of these - great (non-HD) media player but a shocking DVD player. If anyone wants a good player to stream Xvid and the like from their PC then I'd recommend, anything more than that then I wouldn't. Poor support from Kiss too.

See http://www.mpcclub.com (DP-600 forum) for the whines and whinges related to this player.

The best player is a D-Link DSM-520.

It is full HDMI and can stream wireless in HD.

Last week they also added Active TV so you can stream over 200 TV channels to it.

It's the best media player I have bought, it ever plays xvid and divx files.

However there is a new player D-Link DSM-330 which will release at the end of the month.:whistling:

£200, I'm interested. Fancy giving me a spec?

The SilverStone case I want, cost £115 alone.

Of course it will

Don't tell me you still use optical disks for DVD playback? It's 2007, there is no need for such nastiness

Huh?

I presume the case price includes a Motherboard & OS? or is it me that's missing something here?

If your going to make your own HD Media Center for £200 just don't bother! you'll struggle to build anything to do the job - you'd be better off buying a couple hundred quid+ PC from Dell which may just about manage.
#16
You don't need Windows for MythTV - get Fedora Core (free Linux from Red Hat) and install MythTV. Not the easiest thing to install and configure, I must admit.

As to motherboard issue, the case is a barebone, so motherboard is already there.

You can just soft mod an old xbox with XBMC and it will play these and just about any other media type (ISO, DIVX, XVID etc) no problem. Won't give you HD output though.

Preowned Xbox from Game - £35
Old copy of Splinter Cell - £1-3
Xbox Memory Card - <£5ish off ebay.
Software - Free
Small amount of technical savvy - Priceless
New pants (for when you think it hasn't worked) - £5

I have 2 of these playing media from an old (really old) PC acting as a file server.

i just built two media centers using this £39 case (read the reviews before you think it is rubbish):

http://www.ebuyer.com/product/125291

it is a really good case and has 500w PSU.

i bought this £28 VGA motherboard - apparently it supports quad core ( http://www.ecs.com.tw/ECSWebSite/Support/CPU_Support_Model.aspx?detailid=704&MenuID=69&LanID=0 ) :

http://www.ebuyer.com/product/133068

and purchased this £40 core 2 duo because it overclocks like nobody's business.

http://www.ebuyer.com/product/127249


comes out to approx 39 + 30 + 40 n (109 pounds) now all you need is a

30 pounds for 160gb harddisk (http://www.ebuyer.com/product/130408)
16 pounds 20x dvd writer ( http://www.ebuyer.com/product/132560 )
12 pounds for 512mb corsair memory ( http://www.ebuyer.com/product/92875 )
£18 dvbt usb dongle ( http://www.ebuyer.com/product/128575 )
£25 wireless keyboard (http://www.ebuyer.com/product/104608)

this comes out to 210 pounds for a fully upgradeable system that can be easily oveclocked.. okay it is 10 pounds more than i stated but you catch my point e.g. you can get a cheaper CPU.. (i am sure you can get cheaper wireless keyboard but the one i stated is excellent - works for months withou changing batteries and is ps3 compatible..

you will need one case fan too..


but if you got spare stuff lying around the house the setup might come in cheaper and works amazingly well..

Hhmm, yeah saw the barebones thing but ouh the hassel.

I've built my own rigg's since year dot but had enough of all that to be honest.

I bought my old folks a Dell C521 recently, £211 delivered (the latest Dell offer on the board is a much better spec than the c521 btw) and it can play HD content (.mkv) without much trouble, in fact no trouble - I chucked a £55 Nova-T 500 in it for them and the machine is used every day to watch/record TV though M$ Media Center in their living room - I on the other hand spent over £500 on a HP Slimline s3050 and it does exactly the same job (bit faster, granted).

All depends what you want really, but yer pay's yer money takes yer chances.

I have an old Hauppage 150 card. I only use it as a capture card because I have a separate satellite digital receiver that is connected to a motorised dish so it can receive all freeview channels when pointed to Astra 28.

Well, I built mine four years ago when no one heard about media centres in the UK, that's why it cost so much money at this time. It's a powerful machine though that I also use for other things; it's a web server, an FTP server, a mule (running eMule and used to run a BitTorrent client until recently).

But you are absolutely right, you can build a media centre for around £200 today.

What was the Commodore CDTV in 1991 then? ;-)
