So can you just add a usb drive with films on it and watch them or do you need to add some sort of media player device to watch the films?
#4
Sounds like you just select usb from the remote and then play.
Not sure why it's being voted cold, the alternative is a bush scart freeview that doesn't do anything clever.

Looks like a good device, price not amazing but hot anyway!

Thanks

what is the benefit of this over a £15 freeview box (apart from being £15 more expensive!)?

I guess that there are two benefits.
Firstly, this is much smaller than a normal box which may be useful of you are space constrained.
Secondly, it allows an easy way to connect a drive full of divx videos to be attached to your telly.

Note that I don't know how well it works as I have not used one.

I think its that you can watch films/photos/music off a USB pen through this.

There is a pdf user manual on the 'specifications' tab, but the pages which tell you about the USB bit is not displaying on my computer - anyone have the same problem?

You can put films on a usb stick and play them through this device. It's an average price for what it does, but the advantage is the size of it! you can easily carry this around with you to watch films at friends houses who don't have divX players!

I had the same problem but updating Adobe Reader resolved it for me. Click on 'Help' within Adobe Reader and then 'Check for Updates'. Page 11 of the pdf is then viewable.

I think this sounds like a good thing for say a bedroom tv. Just could do with knowing how well the divx files actually play on it?

For me the advantages of this over a cheap freeview box are that you don't have to physically see it and cuts down on wiring a bit.

I probably wouldn't use the usb too much but. Maplin do a scart adaptor without the USB for £25.
