By all accounts quite good although there have been a few reports of software glitches & bad build quality.. there's an extensive thread about them over on AV forums

An enclosure version is also available elsewhere for about £10 more, and can act as a samba based NAS server.

Do yourself a favour and get the WD TV Live,build quality is far superior as is the picture quality,I got the Dell deal £82 delivered.

seems a good deal to me, unless anyone know other branded media players that support rmvb?

Alternatively, get the: -

or get a REVO pc which is a bit more expensive, but a great media player with XBMC

no, rmvb and mp4 are totally different.

The picture quality is 'better' on yours is it? :thinking:

I have just returned it last week due to lack of support for flv files downloaded from the net!
It doesn't have the nice menu like the WD HDTV series. But it has a good facility that supports multiple USB sources connected to ONE USB port via a USB hub that is lacking in WD one.
It also provides a wider range of internet based services than offered by WD HDTV Live, although I had no internet broadband to try them.
It also were crashing few times on remote control response and had to be hard reset by disconnecting from the mains.

I couldn't find any official/unofficial firmware upgrade for it.

With so many players to choose im now confuse which one is the best thanks for all the feedback.

Popcorn Hour all day every day, stick a HDD in it - no more leaving a PC on for streaming etc as well so more efficient and it plays everything I throw at it...including catch, roll over and belly tickles!

xtreamer for me plays anything you throw at it.....put a hard drive init and away u go 99.00 for this....

Ye it does.

popcorn hour, revo, wd live, they all do the same ****. you still need to dl stuff to your pc first, then transfer to one of these devices(bar revo). there isn't that much difference. Personally XBMC all the way(get a revo). But for those wanting hd in the bedroom or connected to your tv and don't need the hassle of setting up a media PC get this, popcorn or WDHDTV live.

got mine from ebuyer for £65 a month ago, plays almost everything and the HD videos look really amazing, already filed my 700GB HDD

Yes the WDTV Live does play ISO files, I've got one and it is really good, but I wish I bought a Revo instead.

Xtreamer is useless, it has more issues with every firmware update.
Hope this is better.

I bought the WDTV v1 over a year ago when choices were much more limited. If buying today, I'd consider the same item for sheer ease of use and good support officially and unofficially.

If you could not be bothered with setting up networks and mainly play MKVs via a usb device, then you can do worse than getting the WDTV.

Can someone explain to me what a 'media player' is?

Is it for plugging into yout tv? You put music and films onto it from your computer, then plug it into your tv to watch it?

Anyone know if either this of the WDTV Live support dvd menus, e.g. dvd ripped to TS, VOB and IFO?

a good deal and a good media player.
be aware better is available and the company isnt that good at firmware updates or customer relations

Be sure to check out..

Yep, that's what they are for.

Wicked Lester;7902118

Yep, that's what they are for.



In addition to that, some of them have built in hard drive and also allow you to plug in external hard drives and come with other features like youtube and bbc iplayer etc.

From the research I've done to date, the Hisense looks like it does more & does it better than anything else:
expansys.com/d.a…127

Note that I have not bought a media player, but from the AV forums I've been reading (100s of pages), this looks like the best bet . . .

As an extreamer owner since day one I have to take exception to this. Whilst it isn't perfect it's no worse than any of the other media players out there and other than delay on movie jukebox and some issues with upnp it's working perfectly for me after some bad experiences with other media players notably the WD

I've got an older Rapsody N35 (N36 firmware) and love it, with a hard drive inside It supports NDAS so shows up as a PC drive, so and just drag and drop files on to it. Plays a stack of video formats, plus music and photo etc.

This looks worse to me. Sorry, but I've had no serious issues with my Xtreamer. Superb value for money.

Got the enclosure version of this last month, and have to say it's the best £78 I've ever spent. Plays absolutely everything I've tried, including flac.Got it connected up to a samsung 1.5 tb story h/drive for my collection of mkv's. It plays them smooth as silk, and the picture quality is great. Yeh you could get the popcorn, and they probably have a better back-up and forum help etc, but not at under £70.

So how do you do the youtube thing with this?
Also, what would youtube vids look like when blown up on a large screen?

just realised ebuer have the wd mini £43.93 which plays rmvb but only supports 1080i ebuyer.com/pro…737 or £44.99 at playplay.com/PC/…tml?&_$ja=tsid:11518|cc:|prd:12980245|cat:Hard+Drives
the 1080p version is £50 shop.bt.com/pro…tml
This asus one seems even better but costs a lil more at £80 has 1080p and esata connection scan.co.uk/Pro…gle

Be careful, this will not allow you to add a hard drive to the unit. you can use an external hard drive, however it cannot be used as an enclosure for a hard drive.

I found out the hard way, i returned it and bought the wd tv. Great product, has played everything i have thrown at it, including mkv files.

the sumvision has problems with large harddrives and the rate of firmware updates is awful, the harddrive problem has been happening for months with no update to address it:(

How easy is it to add a HDD to the WDTV version internally and will it play X264 files???

Cheers
Hk

the WDTV takes an external USB drive, you cannot add an internal one to it.

It does play X264 files

I really cannot see the point of a WDTV mini. Surely the point of a media player for 90% of their owners is to play mkvs, which the mini cannot do.

The Popcorn Hour can download stuff for you too - no need for a PC. I have one, but wouldn't recommend it to anyone - good PQ, but lousy UI (and support),

Yes good point all in one download and play is really what we need, like wd but ability to download direct.

Guess it will be the acer's then????

another happy WDTV user here.
