Mevis Mediabox - Any experience

Hello all,

We're moving and with it the wife wins round 1 of the living room wars. This means my 1TB GeForce 8800GTS, 2GBRAM Intel 6600 mediabox gets relegated to the office :mad:

To replace it I am looking for a low profile wirless box I can plug into my Philips 37pf9731d "almost full" HD TV and Yamaha RxV-557 amp. I'll copy the HD video and MP3 files to it by wifi.

It has to play 720p HD films smoothly, have HDMI and optical out, the firmware has to be updatable, have Wifi (g) and the interface and remote user friendly.

That said I have only found one such box, the Mavis Mediabox (www.mavis.ch). Rapsody don't do wifi and HDMI yet.

Has anyone had any experience with the Mavis box?
Can you suggest any other simple solution or other similar spec media boxes.

Thanks,
James

Just bought the Mevis mediabox and I guess I'll return it tomorrow :( It hangs all the time, I guess it doesnt like the files with "_" inside. Well - it sucks, many photos have this character inside.

It's not the only moment it hangs and you cannot turn it off in this moment, you have to unplug the power cord...

I'm using WDC, 1TB. Well, we'll see.
