    BNI Mediabox alternative

    I bought a bni mediabox some time ago from play.com. BNI no longer exists so I wanted to know if there are any alternatives for the mediabox? I thought it was really good as it played dvix/xvid files on your tv via AV cables and had a remote.

    thanks

    Lifebox media player :thumbsup: Plus, type "media player" in to evilbay, there is loads of others depending on your budget. Alternatively XBMC :-D

    I run old xbox with XBMC on it and its works great, if you buy the HD Cables kit as well it will display in 720p can do 1080 but starts to struggle then.

    XBMC will play anything that you throw at it.

    Let me know if you want to know more.
