Ok so it doesnt have HDMI output but for 20 quid you cant complain for what is does. Also supports DVD ISO images. You cant go wrong for a simple media player with network supports and internal hard drive support.

can i record from sky to this device?

I have done that just to try the function. It seems to works ok.

I have ours in our daughters bedroom. Its not sexy to use (basic) but does the job. Its connected to our network so I can either stream or move media on to the HDD I put in.

I replaced a Sumvision Aqua media enclosure with this. The remote isn't as nice to use and this has a fan so has some noise. I wouldnt say its a pleasure to use but I am pleased I purchased it.

looks like a good find...like the record bit as well....

With mine it crashes if I try and record to HDD. But works fine recoding to a flash drive.

do you know if it plays full hd 1080p mkv video files? i have a netgear which claims it can but apparently it cant, so if this one does, then i'll defo go for it... great deal...love the record bit if it works

You need to amend price.£24.16 incl delivery.
Looks a good bit of kit.

Does this need to be physically connected to the router?

Kazaam, it goes near your tv.

But what if u want to stream data to it to playback on ur tv?

If you want to stream to it you either need an ethernet cable, wireless ethernet adapter or a compatible usb wifi adapter.

You can play video off a usb stick with the emprex, but it's much bigger than the xenta and I'm not sure about subtitles.

thanks 4 ur help! much appreciated

After much deliberation I decide to buy one of these having recently put in a cabled network. I needed something to stream movies to an old TV in a back room mainly for the kids to watch.
I have to say that for the money this is a very good buy. So far I have only ran standard avi files through it from my neywork but it works flawessly with no stutter or lag. Picture quality is very good and fan noise is minimal. I haven't updated the firmware yet as someone told me that the new one lost your USB support - perhaps someone on here could confirm this.
I have now added a hard drive (SATA) which was very easy and have ran films and MP3's from that again with good results.
Down sides would be the remote and the interface being a bit clunky but not deal breakers at all.

All in all for 20 quid I am very pleased with this device and am considering buying another one for a bedroom.
