Was tempted for a second, but no network and only HDMI 1.3

Delivery to the UK is £6. Total £55.

I am not sure why anyone would buy this item. Sometimes it is about more than just saving a few quid its about after service such as firmware updates and warranty. You may well save £20 over a well known brand but at what cost really ?

I honestly think the days of these things are over, or very nearly.... I've had them all from freecom to Tvix to popcorn hour to WD TV to Asus O'play.... and now I have none, I started using my PS3 and then got my Samsung 50C7000 which plays everything from my NAS. The ONLY thing that might tempt me to get one is BD-ISO support but with no network it's useless......

Wow, so a £50 media box will be replaced by a £1100 tv. Good tip!

I think the point is that this £50 box will do a lot more media file-wise (better management, better file format support) than a £1000 TV.

If, lets say, you have an existing £1000 TV and just want to be able to play all the latest downloads then which do you go for, a £50 box or another £1000 TV. Hum?!

As to going for a better known brand, you'll find that the 'better' brands use inferior and outdated hardware, have crappy firmware support, and cost a multiple of this player.

But by all means get yourself down PCWorld and snap up a 'IOMEGA ScreenPlay TV Link Director Edition Media Player'. Early 2009 technology, negligible firmware updates ever since, and £80..

Blu-Ray players and games consoles are fine, but format support will always be limited since these items come from companies that hardly encourage the widest format support and the use such support is commonly put to.

My 300 quid Sony TV has replaced all the ramshackle arrangements I have tried in the past too.

Whatever TV you have it will still be much inferior in terms of format support and media management to this £50 media player.

And with a TV you are stuck with it unless you buy another TV.

Virtually no TVs have MKV or ISO support, and again very few or none support 7.1 channel lossless audio. Just looking at Sony's web site the video / audio support on their Bravia KDL-40NX713 (£789) is:

Audio: mp3.
Video: AVC/AVCHD/MPEG4

Which is fine if every file you ever want to play is one of those 3 formats!!!! Ace.

No, you use a DLNA server that is capable of transcoding!

bit late here but there's a lot to be said for this particular product in that will literally play everything, also about people using their tv's as media players would you really be wanting to use your tv's extra processing power on a built in inferior media player

most of the tv media players also have problems with header compression in mkv files (meaning you need to remux them on your pc!) - this device handles the files fine

I own the h1055 and it's flawless - not had one sync issue in over countless high bitrate DTS mkv's
