    Hi all,
    My first time posting here :hiya:, hope someone can help.

    i have recently purchased a Samsung SmartTV and noticed that it picked up a media server that is built in to my 2yr old WD MyBook :) i have now put my movie collection on to the NAS and its fantastic but i still use my old (non-smart) TV i would love to be able to access my media server on that to.
    Does anyone know of a HDMI DLNA Dongle (ideally Wi-Fi) that would enable me to do this? Not so bothered about internet etc. just LAN streaming

    Media server is Twonky NAS version 7

    Thanks

    WDTV Live is what your looking for, has wireless built in, HDMI + composite video output, will play anything you throw at it.

    The only dongles out there are Android sticks which can be a lot more messy, I'd stick with the WDTV for simplicity's sake.
