Pete, these are due in tomorrow, does that mean they'll ship straight away? What are the stocks and pre-orders like?

Cheers, Matt.

micom-online any good?

none in stock but priced at £96 delivered
hmm i would say go for it and take advantage but i never heard of this company before so its a bit risky as there is no chance they can sell at that price its under disty (supplier cost) and way under mine and im going very low as it is.

Looking for a media player which I can watch using HDMI - HD picture, 5.1 sound, etc on main plasma but at the same time also distribute composite feed to other rooms.

Do we know if this can be accomplished with the WDTV?

i cant give prices or links to the scan website - as its not allowed
Actually Pete you can, if its a direct answer to a question by a member, in this case whats the price:

AVForums rule 7 states the following:
AVForums members must not solicit business from within posts. An example of this is saying 'We sell...'. Soliciting business undermines paid advertising which keeps these forums running. Retailers, manufacturers and distributors are invited (even encouraged) to post information about products on the forums provided it is factual, is generally for the benefit of forum members and doesn't break this rule. ‘Assured Advertisers' have a limited amount of latitude within rule 7.

Rule 7 exists for two main reasons:

* to stop spam. Nobody wants to see people posting adverts in threads.
* to maintain AVForums' revenue streams from paid advertising.

As an advertiser, rule 7 can be a tricky one to judge (as well as implement by the moderators). Nobody may solicit business in posts. This extends as far as us preventing a retailer from letting people know when they have stock of a product.
However, there is a situation when rule 7 can work against the ethos of the forums. Let's look at a reasonably common example. Someone asks for a retailer in their local area. One of our advertisers is not allowed to reply to their question yet another member is allowed to recommend a non-advertiser. That seems very unfair because advertisers with AVForums are putting in the effort to contribute to the forums, yet are gagged by our rules and are unable to help a poster.

Our Assured Advertiser scheme allows advertisers to reply to direct questions with answers which would otherwise break rule 7. These replies must answer the original question(s) and may include a link to their website provided the link is relevant to the answer. AVForums reserves the right to amend or delete any posts by assured advertisers which break any of the forum rules.
Its just if its not in a direct answer to a question, its then seen as just advertising.

Heres Your answer from a new owner of the WD LIVE ON avs..Spider 2K..


just picked up one this morning to compare it to my pch-a110. i plugged it in and it saw my NV+ just fine, plays every video i had on there without fail.

i tried a couple of files the pch-a110 wouldn't play properly(DB bleach has issues, taka naruto wont play sound,and the new db bleach movie would lose sync when pausing or skipping forward/back). the WD live had none of these issues.

im going to give it another few days of testing but this may replace my pch-a110. the reason i chose it over the previous version was the internal drive bay and networking ability. now that i have a 6TB NAS the new WD live may be my preferred player.
