Was in me local Asda's and sae this upgrade box placed next to the other DVD players. Went to checkout to see how much it cost and to my surprise, the lady said 25 POUND! It's brilliant. Has a browser, LG apps, and catch up channels. It was found in Leeds Asda. Unfortunately last one. Hooks straight up to your TV.

is lovefilm on this?

what wifi adapters would be compatible with this? would be a shame if you have to shell out another 30 40 odd quid for an LG wifi adapter or something like that, thats what panasonic made us do with our smart TV anyway...

Had one when £60 earlier in year and returned it next day. Sluggish, none responsive and a waste. If it can be hacked to install XBMC then it's a bargain!!

That's for the US. For the UK version all I can find on their site is this:

iPlayer, ace trax, Diva TV, Youtube

Not really.
1. Amount of "geek" you need to set it up to work fully. Not everyone is comfortable with messing around to get things working from command line - like the overscan options to get it to fill a display by default (at least on Raspian I tried). This is buy it in Tesco and plug it in.
2. It's more expensive - Power, remote control unit and receiver using USB I guess. has no WIFI like this device appears to list (not 100% on that if its a dongle extra as it says "capable" in one place but in the spec sheets lists the A/B/G/N capability. Plus a SD card of some variety - all required to get it to the same functionality as this device.

True the Pi is way more flexible overall, I would agree with that much

How does this compare to a WDTV Live Streaming Media Player?
