First timer here. Cracking price considering you get a media player 1Tb hard drive and free delivery. This has been about £90 mark on amazon, they had dropped their prices but this beats it by a few pennies. Remember to buy an HDMI cable for it though

cheers

For the sake of 13p I would get it from amazon .

Great price - heat added.

NICE ONE HEAT ADDED

So is this the same as the "Live" version but with an internal 1TB disk ? i.e. the same chipset.

I wish the ones with LAN would come down to this price!

No, it's just the media player version without the live but with a 1tb hd .

I don't need the LAN connectivity (it's for my wifes parents) so that's fine, but do you know if it has the same chipset as the Live or does it use the older pre-live one ?

Does it also downsample DTS to stereo (didn't see that in the info above).

Could someone tell me what this thing actually does? Is it a sort of glorified 'dvd player' or does it have more potential than that?

Ta.

Info is a bit limited but it seems this does not even support DTS nevermind downsampling it.

great price if you can live with that restriction.

If its the same chipset as the older none live version it won't handle DTS at all, you have to convert the audio to AC3 (or something similar). Takes about 5 minutes for the average movies length file.

Anyone know how you load files onto it ?

Do you have to move it and its psu to the pc, or can you transfer off a usb stick or hd?
