Anyone out there with a WD HDTV...?

May sound like an odd thing for such an NMT "fanboy" to ask about...!

... but I've had a wee faff with one of these a couple of times, and found them to be pretty good for the money. I'm considering buying one for my girlfriend for her birthday, because she's just bought herself a new TV. I'd buy her an A-110, but it's more than twice as much, so...!

[cough]

My questions are:

1). Does the HDTV play VIDEO_TS DVD rips? I expect this is a silly question, but I've learned to assume nothing...!

2). What's the interface like? It doesn't need to be as gorgeous as YAMJ, but is it fairly self-explanatory?

3). Is there anything I should know about it, good or bad, that a seasoned user can advise upon?


Thanks,




DH.

Hmmm,...
Was not even aware of this product. Looks like a pretty good deal for the price,... but for this quote;

"Combined with a My Passport portable drive (sold separately), this player is the most convenient way to play HD movies or user-generated videos, listen to high-quality digital music and show high-resolution slideshows of your family photos on your TV."

Makes me wonder. Lowest price for both that I could find was just a bit over $200. Looks like you can get an A-110 for the same price.

Re: Anyone out there with a WD HDTV...?

There is a thread on this device here.

While I don't own one of these yet it is at the top of my Christmas list.

I have already been backing up my DVD collection to external hard drives so all I need is the player itself.

Wbassett doesn't own one of these either, he uses a PS3 as a video server, but a relative of his does and he helped him set it up and was quite impressed with it. At the moment it is the biggest bang-for-the-buck for what it does.

I don't have one, but the word on the street is that the WD tv has one of the most comprehensive codec libraries out there.
