Also a DVD burner with lightscribe.

It's worth the money, but I'm waiting for BD-R drive and discs to drop in price so I'll pass.

Got my hot vote though.

Awesome drive, brought one a few months ago.

As jukkie mentions waiting for price to drop on recordable media but at least you can buy bluray or ultra cheap HDDVD safe in the knowledge that you can play them.

Partner this with Any DVD HD.

Ok folks, silly question number one: Assuming I got one of these and fitted to my PC, what's the best way of getting the output onto my HD TV, does it have a HDMI output to run direct to the TV? I don't fancy streaming HD content by wireless, I have enough issue with small file transfer.
#4
I doubt very much you will be able to stream HD content over wifi, theres not enough bandwith.

Ive heard that HD will transmit via a normal monitor cable though, you dont neccesarily need hdmi or dvi but im sure an expert will come along soon enough and put that straight.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HDCP

HD DVD, Blu-ray Disc and DVD players (with HDMI or DVI connectors) use HDCP to establish an encrypted digital connection. If the display device—or in the case of using a PC to decrypt and play back HD DVD or Blu-ray media, the graphics card (hardware, drivers and playback software)—does not support HDCP, then a connection cannot be established. As a result, a black picture and/or error message will likely be displayed instead of the video content.


Basically your graphics card must support HDCP (usually by DVI or HDMI) and the cable you use must be a digital one obviously (HDMI to DVI, DVI to DVI etc), and the input on the monitor must support HDCP. Just because a computer or monitor has the right input/output jack it does not mean they support HDCP, so be very very careful! (Read below for a way around HDCP)

Also you have to have a pretty good machine to run this stuff, not sure of the exact specifications but no e-machines basically, no way around this one. There is however a way around the restrictions imposed by HDCP, go here for more information on that.

As mentioned above, use AnyDVD HD and HDCP is completely bypassed.

not a great price, you can get a reader off scan.co.uk for £85.

Forget wireless for streaming HD, if you cant put some cat5 cable try the HD 200mb/s Homeplugs which network between your electric sockets.

Might aswell buy the blue ray writer for £50 more

Not a bargain - can be had quite a few places for under £100

I must say, OCUK always seems to be more expensive than most.

HD Streaming over wireless is a non starter in the main .. However I can stream 1gig files to my xbox without slow down.. ( TV episodes ) .. As soon as that is upped to 4gig files its a nonsense.

I was looking into the wired connection via the electrical sockets but there looks to be a lot of variance over the speed that you can get which calls into question HD material.

Stand alone x264 player would be the way forward if anyone knows anything about one ..

I get scan delivery for free.....(Scan are a great company)
Check out the forums of av (remove the 'of' and put av at the front)

Didn't know if we could post other "competitors", though, they are not really.
Just an excellent place to overload your brain with information.

Customer service at Scan was absolutely shocking a few years ago. Is it any better now?
