    Does anyone have any more info about this beauty: http://www.tvix.co.kr/ENG/Products/TVixHDM5000U.aspx
    Looks almost like a dream come true, Networked, USB 2,HDD etc. Notice the DVB-T/ATSC tunerbox option. And yes it has DVI!

    I have heard that it will be released sometime in August, maybe someone knows the exact date and price.

    Obviously designed for the North American market ; of passing interest to the main users of this forum though - we are nearly all in Europe.
    Worth posting in www.avsforums.com (our USA equivalent).

    Scart through optional breakout box.. ie. it doesn't actually have scart.

    DVB-T through optional external DVB-T tuner.. ie. it doesn't actually have DVB-T.

    It's rather like the other multimedia boxes which are available (minus wifi, which I'm not sure is that much of a disadvantage).

    My main issue with it would be it looks like a dustbin... without pricing it's not really possible to make any other judgements.

    Yes - reading the FAQ the SCART output is only via a cable - and thus limited to composite or S-video quality, with no RGB option it seems.

    I suspect the DVB-T receiver is probably "coming soon"... I'd expect ATSC first, given that Korea is a mainly-ATSC region. (DVico, also in Korea I think, launched ATSC stuff a long time before DVB-T stuff)

    I like the look of the unit - but not necessarily the way you dealt with Chris' comments...

    In fact I did follow the link.
    I just didn't expand on why I thought it of limited interest to the European market - but others have subsequently done that for me.

    (currently playing with a Nebula USB DigiTV Freeview box which won't run off my Dell D600 laptop, with or without being docked ; docking gives you a powered USB hub but doesn't fix it - that's why I never replied earlier )

    The main thing with this one is obvioulsy, the High Def. possibilities. and hi-def. movies in .TS and .WM9 are easy to get if you know what yore doing. So why would anyone want to use Scart etc. witch is not HD compatible?

    The ShowCenter 200 does this also, as do several others - this is by no means a unique device.

    It's be interesting to compare (I strongly suspect it uses the same chipset), but until they're released (there's not even any projected pricing yet) it's just basing specs on adverts, which is a bad idea... wait for them to become available first.

    Hi

    Has anyone on the forum got a TViX HD M-5000U?

    If so it would be great to see a review on how it handles .ts files and other HD material :)

    NTFS file support for USB is very interesting. No more 4gb limit.

    Great review by Hi-Jack :)

    I have to admit it pushed me into going for the TVIX HD M5000U, I'll report my findings in a few days.

    Well I've been using the TVIX HD M5000U for just under a week and it’s been a pleasurable experience :smashin:

    It’s played all but two HD files I've got including all the High MB NASA ones faultlessly and all my .ts files without a hitch, all in all very pleased with this HD media player and the DVI connection makes a noticeable difference over component.

    My only niggles are a pretty backwards way of connecting to the pc to the box as reported in the High-Jack review, and a little more support for all us non-Korean users.

    Apart from that it’s a very nice bit of kit that does what it says on the box, its also built to a better standard than first thought :thumbsup:

    Good to know at least someone read the review :)
    We put a lot of work in those... we re-reviewed it a couple days ago as the
    old version made in March was outdated...

    In my humble opinion, there's nothing better in this range of products at the
    moment. only item for discussion is taste, you either like the design or you
    don't... :)
