    Hi Guys,

    I'm looking for a set-top box media player with the ability to use an internal hard disk so I can copy media files over to it from my PC via RJ45 and USB2 (not bothered about WIFI)

    I would pref an IDE drive (altho would consider SATA, just means buying a new HDD) and an HDMI connection

    Must be able to play the likes of....divx, vxid, vobs, dvd isos, MPEG2-TS would also like 264 but not a deal breaker

    don't require a DVD drive

    any ideas?

    Thanks!

    For high definition videos yes, its the bees knees. But for standard definition, its a lot to be desired. If you're looking for a mixture of both, the TVIX 4100SH comes out on top! Only lacking slightly in the HD front because unlike the LimHD200i it looks a more than just HD.

    Have a look at these reviews. They're probably the two best on the market right now but not easily attainable in the UK market:
