my first posting guys go easy...

What's the difference between this and the Apple TV?


What's the difference between this and the Apple TV?

Apple TV has an (arguably) nicer interface, and built in wi-fi; and provides integration with iPhones, iPods and iPads through Airplay. But only streams off the net or an iTunes library, and only in Apple-supported formats, and only at 720p

This is cheaper, plays (far) more formats, and will play them at full 1080p; and can play from a range of servers / file shares / USB drives. Haven't yet found anything this wouldn't play

I have one of these and can't fault it barring a few minor niggles in a few firmwares but really it plays pretty much anything I give it. It can even tell you the weather now too.

just ordered guys can't wait to receive - recently got a blu-ray player for first time LG BD550 £60 from RGB Direct - great player but stopped playing dvd's after few days - got for MKV format - so not gnna bother with dvd's anymore can't wait to get streaming with this. I've also got 4 homeplug adaptors now from Ebuyer which do an amazing job and def better than wi-fi!! Any tips for using this box appreciated!

so to be clear on this. i can play a film on my Laptop and this thing will wirelessly xfer the film to the plasma TV?

No tim.. you plug your hard drive or ethernet cable into this and it plays on tv via hdmi!

Coming up as £77.84 so I think its expired....
