Western Digital TV HD Media Player

You have mounted that new flat screen to the den wall and only made provision for a minimum of other electronics like a cable DVR and possibly a Blu-ray player. Certianly no room for a HTPC, but you have media files, photos and music that you would like to play using your flat screen, right? So what to do. Enter the Western Digital TV HD Media Player.

 

With the item on the left the you will be able to play any of the media files or recorded movies you may have on your computer. It is very small and takes up hardly any room so it will be right at home with whatever provisions you have made for your other support equipment.

Add a USB drive and you are all set to load the drive from your computer with the files you want to play.

    Ok, and why did they not include an ethernet port?

    I don’t want to copy everything off my home network to some external hard drive, and THEN re-plug it and play.

    confused,
    I agree that it would be great to have an ethernet port. Hopefully they will come out with a model with that feature in the future.

    I don’t know why it was not included. My guess is they were looking at cost as well as there is an issue of the interface. It could be pretty complicated to come up with a friendly interface to select the source over a LAN with just a remote control as well as aditional memory required for the increased software. All of that could easily double the cost.
