Hi Everyone, I'd like a bit of advice about the Western Digital WDTV and a few other HD Players.
I've got lots of MKV files that I would like to playback on my HD Tele, however I can't make my mine up on which player to buy.
The most popular one seems to be the Western Digital WDTV (Around £65), however after an hours worth of reading reviews it seems the WDTV has problems with MKV files with 5.1 DTS and gives no sound, therefore each files needs to be downmixed to enable you to hear it, also theres lots of problems with laggy menus and other issues, that said theres also a lot of good reviews too.
The box I'm considering is the Xstreamer which is around £99, this has inbuilt wifi which would be useful, but doesnt have as good menus as the WDTV.
There are other models but I'm really stuck on what to get, I've been having a good read and some have opted for a HTPC but I don't want to spend a fortune nor do i want anything bulky, the PS3 and xbox are not an option as they dont play MKV files straight off their hard drives, trust me if the PS3 could do this then I would swap out the internal hard drive with a large 1tb one.
Has anyone any recommendations on what would be the best option
