Amazing FULL HD 1080p Media Player with tons of features and supports all HD file formats, MOST importantly for me, it decodes DTS sound which a lot of HD mkv files are encoded at, so you wont need to waste time changing file formats or cutting files down to a smaller size, just plug in any USB stick or hard drive and bing bang boom! your off!

You can even plug in an ethernet cable from your router or connect wirelessly and watch YOUTUBE, browse YOUTUBE, search YOUTUBE, login to YOUTUBE and favorite YOUTUBE videos on your TV!!!!

As windhoek says, where can you get Blu Ray movies (guessing .mkv files) from? I've used zml in the past which seemed alright but wondering if theres better/cheaper out there. Also how long before the '3 strikes and your off' law kicks in?
Thanks

(obviously I only need these files to 'backup' existing movies I own :p )

I've got two of these, probably as good as you are getting at the moment in terms of value and simplicity to use. It's not perfect,there are a few minor issues like every player at the moment, but I've had zero problems with mine, has played everything perfectly that I've thrown at it.

Simply use SSL encryption then they don't know what your downloading :thumbsup:

Its there if you want to move the drive somewhere else without turning off the media player. You'd eject the drive first same as you would if it was connected to a computer.

Doesn't your IP show up to anyone else you're sharing with? Bit Torrent or limewire type service, they all display you IP in the application, no? Or are you not talking about filesharing?

Yeah, or use a proxy server cos then they will never know!! :roll: No matter what you use the authorities CAN identify you IF they want to, all they have to do is find the source and see what traffic its had. At the end of the day, the data has to get to you your computer and the only way it can do this is to know where you are.

In the past they have targetted the UPLOADER as they are the source, but now they are changing to the DOWNLOADER (I suppose its a bit like prostitution, they try to take out the demand to eradicate the supply?!? A new breed of "ambulance chasing" law firms are appearing who will work very hard to find and fine you, for the "benefit" of the film industry of course (not to mention their fee!!).

If you don't want to get caught, don't download, simple as that!! There are so many getting caught out nowadays that the excuse loopholes are being closed daily such as:

"it wasn't me who downloaded it" - If it went to your PC, you've got to prove who had access
"my network was hacked" - Other EU countries are passing laws saying that YOU have to secure your network, failure = liability
"I thought it was OK as it was there" - Stupidity does not give adequate defence

My advice if you're still going to do it:

1. only download from storage sites NOT P2P (limewire etc) as with P2P YOU are UPLOADING whenever you download unless you change your settings which kills your download speed!!

2. Try to get files that are password protected so that its harder for anyone to see what the files contain

3. Don't download files like "Avatar_DVDrip.rar" as its obvious what the payload is!!

HTH :thumbsup:

Things like it doesn't play DVD VOB files with menus (although I've only tried once to play those kind of files and they did play the video), you can only fast forward through films, so it's a pain to jump about, searching for YoutTube videos can be slow but the youtube functionality is still ok to use, I've seen various comments from people, some more pedantic than others.

My wife loves it to and she is a great example of a complete technophobe.

Not a great deal. Its been that price at my local store for a couple of months.

Nice bit of kit though

All that you quoted before you mentioned point 1 is related to torrenting, just thought i'd point that out. And as you elude to with your point 1, there's more than one way to skin a cat. I think your point 3 is totally irrelevant as you have no control over the filenames!
