Need to add £6.60 for the postage so £71.59 in total.

Still a good price (Ebuyer is £74.99).

Good deal - but you will need to add a hard drive - there isn't one included.

I have this and you DO NOT HAVE TO ADD A HDD at all it can stream without it fine also it is a nas drive too.
#6
Great bit of kit, you can easily customise these too, I have changed the bittorrent client for a better one and added a newsgroup client to mine. The only bit I can't get working yet is jukebox add on like YAMJ but I'm sure I'll get there soon.

Plays everything I can throw at it and it support DTS too.

I have this.


Could you confirm whether this is noisy or gets hot, as suggested by CHR0M£D0M£? I'd only use it to stream from a NAS, but it'd be in the bedroom, so I don't want any fans or such.
Thanks.

As long as you realise the Sumvision warranty is worthless!

Good to know - but it can't be a NAS if you don't add a HDD!

Youtube has blocked these players (Licensing issues I think) and they have not worked for youtube for some time. I am happy to be corrected if someone can point me to a firmware fix.

Essentially the same machine but cant take a hdd, so its either a usb drive or the lan.

the next step up od machines are the playons which work with Yamj or the popcorn hour considerable more, but it works. If you cnat afford NMT then he playon mini seems o get beter reviews than the wdtv live or this. All have their champions though.

Use Noontec V8 firmware, youtube works ok with that >

This is information I've found on various forums, please research it more before flashing any firmware.

The Playon HDmini is on today only at £76 at scan and is a much much better machine than this it comes with a 2year warranty and a high quality HDMI lead full support for yamj and the software to set yamj up is on the AcRyan site which took me 5minutes to get working and is totally silent and cool running with regular firmware updates. I have a popcorn hour and the Ryan beats it hands down its much quicker supports every format there is ive never had it refuse to play anything even stuff the PCH has refused.

This for me is stone cold its ryan mini money its sumvision and is sold by a rubbish company why would you buy this when for £2 more you can have a player that has won every award there is with a 2year warranty and sold through one of the best PC shops there is, its a no brainer. The ryans on today only and you must click buy from the today only page to get the price if you go to the product page and click buy the full price will be charged.

ok ill go with what polly says. acryan are meant to be a very nice company to deal with for after sales support as well and they talk to their users via the forum. I would not underestimate the extra usability that having access to YAMJ provides.
#16
^ this looks good but i like the idea of a HDD inside with all my stuff on it, better just for kids to hit what they want with remote, Without the internal HDD then i would not want one, so the OP gets a hot from me
#17
thinking of getting one of these but would like to know a few things
firstly I have 3 laptops and a ps3 all wireless on an "up to 8mb connection"
if I make this wireless will it slow everything down more

also how does the youtube function work ie does it come up on the player or do you have to stream it from the computer

and lastly does it cause security issues due to it being wireless

With all these players the security is what you make it, i cant speak for the sumvision but the PCH and ryan will authenticate with wpa2 if thats what wireless security you are using (and you should be) with the ryan it locates the shares you make on your computer and you then just play them, no software required unlike the flakey PCH that needs MyIhome as its not dependable on workgroup mode, As for wifi its not a good idea even if its wirelessN streaming of 1080p his hit and miss over wifi and with any HD streamer you will want to steam 1080p and over wifi its going to stutter and play up now and again, its far better wired or or get yourself a set of homeplugs (Wired using a plug at each end and using your mains wiring to carry the data) or just get yourself a lowcost media streamer that wont play HD and you wont really have such a issue.

Your 8mb connection is your internet download speed you wont be using that you will be using your home network which wouldnt even need the internet plugged in, depending on what your router is it will either be wireless G or N wirelessG has a maximum speed of 54mbps and distance of 100meters, wirelessN has a much better range of upto 300 meters and a maximum speed of 300mbps so wirelessN is the one you want but to reach these speeds you will need wirelessN router and wifi cards and will be dragged down by any wirelessG cards on the network meaning its only as fast as your slowest connection and thats all on ideal curcumstances the further away you client is from its router the lower the speed you will get meaning its not ideal for streaming of HD media.

Fully agree, reasonable company is Scan and the AC Ryan is a superb unit. No fans, very low power consumption unlike the likes of the PS3. I just can,t find a negative, Why do people build computers for under their tv when this unit does the biss.

people build pc media centres like me becasue there are to many media centre boxs like this with very very poor user interface and untill somone designs a good user interface i will stick with my big pc.

he one that polly just posted imo.
#24
I consider these are all first generation player for downloadable divx, mkv, etc. The market is changing quite fast and online content will be the key in the coming months. For example, the ability to access Lovefilm.com or upcoming amazon online rental will be a key feature. Nevertheless, a HD player below £80 is a good price.

Voted hot.

Is this the same player, but cheaper through Amazon as you dont have to pay the postage?

#27
the sumvision boxes are cheap and cheerful but i dont think i have seen a company as bad as them at handling support or firmware issues - well maybe HDX were worse.

i personally would look at a european model such as PlayON or look at the south african Mede8er instead of these boxes.

hardly first generation :) while they may still be rubbish this sort of thing has been around and living in peoples front rooms for a good 6-7 years. Just a shame they still get the basics wrong

A.C. Ryan is: DTS (passthrough & downmix to stereo),; That doesn't sound good (pardon the pun).

Most Blu Ray movies are DTS.

I have a sumvision, I would not recommend buying one because it has 10/100mbit connection, which if you bought it to stream 1080p movies means its next to useless.

Also the menu system is the worst I've ever seen, and I have the latest update. If you have a large media collection at a decent quality I'd pick something else.

I actually had my heart set on Boxee box - but d-link have made it with a 10/100 ethernet connection instead of gigabit also.
#33
Always baffles me when people say 100Mbps is not enough to stream 1080p it's more than enough do the math and you will see. Usually there is something wrong with your set up. I stream 1080p mkv files across 85mbps homeplugs to my box no problem.
#34
Can anyone tell me, can I buy an Ac Ryan Playon mini, connect a hdd to it, and then access this over the network and play videos from my xbox 360? Thanks.
#35
Sorry for clarification that should be, stream videos stored on the hdd/playon to my xbox 360 which is connected to a tv elsewhere.

(sorry couldn't edit original post).

Mate I would love it if you could tell me how good the WD HD Live is. I am busting to get one of those but am holding out as I cant really find a decision-making review out there. Yeah I can find some pretty damn good reviews but I want somebody to tell me what exactly it does that blew their socks off.
I wanted to get the most expensive one (Plus I think) but couldnt quite work out whether it was worth it as all it seemed to have in addition to the model below it was some sort of streaming TV which I interpreted as only being available in America anyhow!!?!?!

All I want is a respectible manafacturer made media player that streams movies, music and photos (so media in general then!) from my NAS through my HDTV - and for audio through my home cinema system via the necessary setup. Not over wireless as I'll just connect it up to my network through my router so it obviously needs an ethernet port and one with a remote control - ideally with navigational menus.

Sounds fine to me - passthrough if you have stand alone audio receiver, and downmix if you want to play on your stereo TV.

As already corrected, 100Mb is more than adequate for streaming 1080p video. I have a gig switch and router but I had no problems at 100Mb when using that speed. Full 1080p Blu-Ray file with HD audio only peaks at around 40Mb/s at most.

There are reasons not to buy the sumvision but this isn't one of them. 100mb is more than suitable.
