Nice reduction now the new version is out.

The specs you have listed are for a different model ,this is the mini player and doesnt have HDMI,

This is a new version of the original model.
Its smaller and the outputs are different. In fact it looks like there is no HDMI - only component and composite

Hi
Thanks for posting. And welcome to HUKD.
It is good practice to also add the merchant and price to the title. It helps people who are just browsing through. And in my experience your post will get a few more “hot” votes.
Emmajk42 / Juliet_Bravo wrote a couple of very comprehensive and excellent guides for newcomers to HUKD here: - hotukdeals.com/ite…ne/

They are well worth taking a look at.
Again, thanks for posting, and welcome to HUKD.
Kind regards Andy

If it don't have a hdmi port then how can it be hd ?

Through component

Wrong description -this is the new cheap 1080i

edit or expire this i nearly bought it thinking it had hdmi

Yes I just looked this model up - it's not even a new version of the older model - its an entirely new model as it only plays SD content. Sure it upscales that SD content up to 1080i BUT it does not play HD. This product is quite misleading.

get this instead: Western Digital Live 1080p Internet Media Streamer Television :-)

this looks like a better version amazon.co.uk/Wes…CK/ for £69.87 has HDMI and is 1080p instead of the 1080i
according to Amazon 66% buy that.
