Is this as good as Apple TV?

Can XBMC be installed on it?
NX3#5
XBMC, no

It can do 1080p, ATV2 can't, is it better ? It depends what you want it to so get more specific.

Looks Slick

I've had this for couple of days now.

Forget the Apple TV deal, this literally destroys it.

UI is the newer WD Live Hub one and actually looks decent.

XBMC, no


I'm out :(

Have they fixed auto-framerate on this newer box? Currently the latest WDTV Live firmware doesn't automatically switch to 1080/24p when playing a Bluray rip.

Still no BBCiplayer I see, despite the year old Viewsonic VMP74 having it, which is almost identical inside and even has the same processor - cold (and I own the original WD TV Live Mk 1!)

why is this any better than other players such as the Ac Ryan. It is only usb 2. Am I missing something.

And you NEED USB3 because?!?!? I play 16gb BR rips on my WDHDLive and its FLAWLESS, am I missing something or do some people insist on features that are just not needed?!?!?

As for the Ryan, I chose the WD based on forum feedback, main thing for me was good support and plenty of forums. Have a look at Canon and Nikon and you will see that sometimes the only difference between two products is personal choice ;)

And one you get it ... make it better by putting custom firmware on it :)
Takes a bit of tinkering if you want movie sheets up etc (search for it on youtube) ... But looks spot on and worth it :)
