Not bad at all, good price for a decent upgrade
Agreed, not a bad price to upgrade to quite a few new features. + heat.
Hot deal.
Does anyone know if you can view adobe flash sites with this?

i think there is a firmware upgrade which includes flash 10 support, i will try and find a link to it
It looks good but I would spend the extra £9.99 and get a Roku, this also has a Plex channel.

Roku isn't DLNA certified. Might make connection to NAS devices difficult or even impossible.

I actually think you best bet is to pay the extra and get a WDTV Streaming box, currently £77 pound, I know it is a jump in price but it does everything

you cant unless you buy the £99.99 one by the looks of it the cheaper unit just seems to change your TV into an internet tv by looks of it.
I forgot to say by the looks of it....

Me to.
Can u install xbmc on this?
Roku seems useless as it doesn't mention Web browsing, just a portal to whatever channels they are pushing
well just tried to ring my local store to check if available , but close at 6 pm so will have to wait until tomorrow
Another option is to buy a freeview HD box with the features built in. The HD-FOX T2 is often on sale for £60 has Iplayer, youtube and DNLA built in and seems to play most media I throw at it.

For a number of people though I image this would be a very hot deal.

went to two asda stores in cardiff, only the one stocked them and were sold out
Seems like a good buy if you can get one.

I'd guess so as plex started life as xbmc for mac. Plex is better IMO anyway
Does anyone know if I could use a wireless keyboard with my smart tv?
Would LG TV remotes would work with this box? If not, it's another £50 or so for the so-called "Magic Motion Remote Control" as far as I can see.

It can install the Plex client, so you would need Plex installed on a PC and it would stream from that.

Essentially it makes it a prettier version (with covers etc) of DNLA

Looks like your wrote that on a rubbish keyboard.
gort1951

LOL,

back to school for kick800 :0
Had one of these for a while until it started to crash regularly - often in the middle of watching iPlayer or streaming a movie. Replaced with a WDTV Live which is far superior, particularly in the video formats it supports (and was cheaper than the original price for this, although £40 is pretty good for the LG if (a) you can find one and (b) it works!).
Would have been better if it allowed you to stream your PC/Laptop HDD so you could watch all your movie downloads like the Popcorn hour allows.

BTW:Still Hot at this price.

I have two Apple TV2's running XBMC at home and love them, they pull files from my NAS without the need for a running PC. I also use a Sonos music system, again taking my iTunes from the NAS without the need for a running PC. Yes a different thing but another option and would be happy to give some advise on the setup

Edit: I should also point out that they run the US netflix and retain their original features, and what I mean is they can still be used as an Apple TV renting movies etc but now with the XBMC as an option on the menu, so simply and Apple TV with now more features

I'm always interested in devices such as this so like to weigh up the pros and cons (there are always both). So what exactly is wrong about his statement when he has looked at actual user reviews and ccs_digital seems to back it up?

1. try get a sammy br smart player for £40

2. Did he even look at the services this LG provides? it has loads

3. spelling / grammar is appalling
Edited by: "csiman" 10th Apr 2012
I am very new to this so please excuse me if i ask obvious/strange questions

1. will i be able to view websites such as bbc sport, lottery, ebay etc on this or is it things such as lovefilm, bbc iplayer etc only
2. I am looking at replacing an old desktop pc which I have connected to my sony hd tv just to stream movies/tv shows from project tv etc. Would this allow me to do this and would a wd tv be better suited for this?
3. Why is a wd tv better than this?
4. how would I type website address etc

thanks in advance
