Surely i'm not the only one that wants this.

What im after and this seems hard to find, is

A box that lets me play my movies from my external hard drive
to be able to watch bbc iplayer, itv player, 4od and 5 on demand
And wifi because my tv is nowhere near my phone socket.

So what do will do all of this?


a laptop or android table with hdmi out

Wifi bandwidth will cause you issues, Homeplug is a better solution if you can't cable.


I've owned an android box, I posted reviews on youtube. They appear good on paper but the reality is a poor experience, the box wasn't up to playing SD videos let along HD or streaming flash websites online. I had the Kogan box with a 1ghz CPU. An android table with a Terga2 cpu like Motorola Xoom, Asus Transformer, Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 with HDMI out would be fast enough but cost about three times as much.
