Bear in mind that this is Pre Order Item (Item currently awaiting an ETA.)
Some may say that Popcorn Hour A-110 is slightly cheaper, but then it doesn't support SD cards. Anyway, you still can't get this one at the better price, can you?


Other than DRMed files, itll play anything; massive storage capacity; picture quality is excellent. The latest firmware version NOW includes DTS to Stereo Audio Playback Support.

The HDX-1000 is a new network media streamer that supports the most demanding video codecs available today. It's powered by HDMI 1.3a that supports pass through of high definition digital audio, such as DTS HD-HR, DTS HD-MA, Dolby Digital Plus and Dolby True HD.

With the HDX-1000 you'll be able to stream and display your HD and SD media through your home network as well as from NAS, USB HDD, memory stick, memory card and internal harddrive.

Itll even play ripped DVDs and Blu-rays, the latter at 1080p/24fps with HD audio intact. The only files it wont play are DRM-protected ones.

You can play files directly from a PC or NAS device on your network, or you can transfer them on to the 1TB hard disk (its also available in 500GB and diskless forms) using the Ethernet or USB connections.

In fact, once theres content on the HDX-1000, it can act as a NAS device itself, sharing said content with the rest of the network. It even has its own BitTorrent client for downloading files directly.

Performance with video is excellent. Through HDMI and Component the HDX-1000 has support for up to 1080p resolution, making it possible to display high resolution videos and picures on your HD-TV.

HDX-1000 has an exclusive aluminum casing and sports a number of Audio/Video connections, card reader, support for 2.5 or 3.5 SATA HDD, BitTorrent P2P downloader as well as a hardware power ON/OFF switch.

Very similar to the Popcorn Hour A-110 Networked Media Tank, but with SD card support.

I thought that this site is for sharing best deals/prices for particular items. There are some people who would like to stream HD content. So in my opinion if you are not interested in one of these, you shouldn't vote. Voting cold just because the item is not useful for you missing the whole idea of this forum.
This is the best price around for this equipment and it will be delivered when they got it back in stock at that price.

Well, I personally didn't vote. I know it's frustrating when people vote … Well, I personally didn't vote. I know it's frustrating when people vote something cold, when you think is hot, but everyone has opinions. Oh and by the way, from my experience I've found that stating that it "should be hot" makes people vote it even colder. And also AFAIK it's against the rules to post items that are out of stock...And as I said, I can stream HD content over my network to my Xbox 360. So if anyone has an Xbox (and quite a few people do), £160.99 isn't justifiable really.



Yes but converting them to mp4 then splitting them in to two files is an absolute PAIN!!!
I just got a Sammy 7 series that supports my much loved MKV files so I have no need for this. But it's a great price for a HD Media Streamer.

Is that a TV that has a network connection and supports HD files?

Cheers, Des.

Yes. It sure does. Also has online widgets

le46b650 is the model number.

Sorry I meant 6 series. (Typing on my iPhone)

Thanks for that, I'll have to investigate further.

But at first glance, it won't do, as it uses DLNA I can't prevent kids from viewing non-kid films/TV etc on the server.

I will investigate further though as I like the concept, and might be able to use widgets to do some other stuff like callerid and email alerts etc.

Cheers, Des.

It has built in stuff as well like a cook book and childrens stories.

The widgets are yahoo widgets, there are only a few available.

I think there are a few reasons;

1] It's unproven, there are a lot of these types of player flooding the market right now. It's a lot of money for something that may have a lot of bugs at launch. Wait for the user reviews.

2] The Popcorn Hour is cheaper and does the same job. I don't think people mind about the absence of an SD slot :whistling: I have a WD TV, even cheaper.

3]It's not in stock. And furthermore, the cheapest price doesn't automatically make it value for money.

Good price if it was in stock.Popcornhour is not cheaper when you include delivery.
