you can get teh WD tv for around £80 and play .MKV

As i mentioned in my post this is a very portable player, the smallest media player you can buy, to store a .mkv movie you would need between 4-8gb on a HD, even more at full HD, as you mentioned the WD is £80+ this is £65, no comparison really,

no rmvb or mkv, lukewarm for me. the wd tv on play is much better.

I think you are missing the point of the player, rmvb is a limited extension and how often do you dl'd full .mkv files with our current broadband limitations and speeds? people bang on about.mkv extenstions but you can bet that 99.9% of all files downloaded are avi. etc, not .mkv, i have a Popcorn Hour that plays .mkv but hardly ever dl'd them due to the size, tbh the only ones i have are "300" and "The Dark Knight". and at 1080p they use up a ridiculous amount of space,

i think you are missing the point of the wdtv, it's ~15 quid more and plays alot of stuff brilliantly.

it has regular updates to firmware and a nice UI. i certainly wouldnt trade my wdtv for this and a £20 note.

i only get .mkv on 50mb virgin so no good to me

When was the last time you downloaded a .mkv file and who is your ISP?,

This thread sounds like it should be in AV Forums!!! ;-)

Not sure why you are trying so hard to justify this deal m8?

People will just vote cold coz it doesn't play this and that when they've prob never even dl'd one anyway!

Just let them get on with voting cold and leave them to it! :thumbsup:

I only download mkv also :thumbsup:

Unless the films HD rip isnt available i will get the R5/DVDSCRNR

But i like my films in high def.

So 98% of the time it will be mkv.

I would say one of the main advantages of .MKV is small file size, achieved by efficient H.264 encoding. For example a 350mb .MKV encoded properly can often be of a equal or better quality than a 700mb XviD/DivX .AVI

This is why .MKV/H.264 playback is necessary in a media player like this

If it is encoded as Full HD then im afraid that it will NOT be full HD or 1080i or even 720p, you can encode a file within a .mkv container but its never going to be HD, so you are trying to say that you can achieve HD at 350mb, tosh, we are talking about a player that can handle HD not one that can downcode in .mkv to 350mb,

Exactly, so to download a HD rip would take between 4-8gb, even upto 32gb in full hd (1080p)

I'm not talking HD i'm talking small filesize, which is useful for two reasons; storage limitations and bandwidth limitations. This is how I see it; if you want to be able to play the average DivX/XviD file buy a £20-30 DVD/DivX player that will do this task just fine for half the price. And If you want to be able to play a wide range of formats including the versatile .MKV format you need the WDTV player at around £80. This product is in the middle ground price-wise and has the benefits of neither of the above mentioned products thus making it poor value for money

Can anyone recommend a media player that be used as a link between the sky+ box and my western digital hd so that I can rip my sky progs to avi to store on the hdd and then use on mp4 players etc.

Don't think you can access the video stored in the Sky+ box directly i'm afraid. The only way round it is to record to DVD-RAM and then transfer it that way.

You need to get an Archos and a docking station, you can then record anything playing on the TV onto that :thumbsup:
