    HD Media Player help needed

    Right. Well i have an external hard drive which is USB which was packed to the rafters with MP3 and High Def WMV (this used to be connected to an Xbox360 which i have since sold on)

    My PC is upstairs so running HDMI cables etc around the house is a no no. Basically, is there something i can buy, quite cheap which i can connect this drive to to run all my films in HD etc to my TV?

    Ive seen media centres and the like but these are well over £200 which is not really what i want to pay. I just want to connect my drive to something and be able to output HDMI and maybe Optical out. Is there anything anyone can suggest?

    does this run standalone or do i need to use my PC as well? Because ideally id just like to connect the drive to it and away we go

    Stand alone, connect your HDD via USB, connect an ethernet cable and away you go

    Shows up on your windows machine, map it as a network drive. (if you want to obviously)
    Runs 1080p .mkv's lovely
