    Multimedia Player

    I have been looking about for a Multimedia player for the house so i am not restricted to watching things in the bedroom tv or PC monitor, So ideally it is for the living room. There are alot around and im not sure where to start. Can anyone who owns one recommend one, preferably one with a nice User Interface if they do them.

    Thanks

    Modded Xbox with XBMC ;-) Plays just about anything, but some people have issues with the fan noise.

    This had crossed my mind, just a bit big. Was looking for something that can just sit nicely on top of the digi box

    Well have a look on Ebuyer and Maplin then as they do MM drive enclosures. Not sure if they're any good though. Just reading the reviews etc is probably your best bet.

    I got 2 of these from SVP, work great, now on clearance for £25 + delivery

    These are great , there the very same ones I bought at maplin early last year for £39.00 each . I initially bought one and fitted a 80 gig HDD into it and thought it was so good I bought another.Has a remote and all the cables and power adapter . All you do is fit a drive , upto a 500gig , create 4 folders : Files:Music :Video: Photos ,fill up the folder with stuff from your PC .ie mp3's ,video files like vob's/avi's/divx etc , jpg's . Plug the unit into a PC monitor , plasma etc and play your stuff back on the screen . Not only a Media player but acts as a back up drive too.
    Great init !
