So we are not talking about BestBuy the store.. here in the US. Also, im afraid to buy a media player outside of the US because obviously I don't want the PAL standardalexeames wrote:I've recently acquired two of these best buy easy home dvb-t hd dual to convert our older TVs in holiday home to digital.
They are about the price of a RasPi model A and seem to offer similar media player functionality. Of course, you get a full set of Codecs, a TV tuner, record and play from USB devices. I'm trying to resist tearing open the case to look inside. You don't get to mess with Linux though.
I saw one in a shop in Lodz, but couldn't believe it would be any good at that price (109 zl ~ £20, $30). Checked it out on the web and they get good reviews. Best Buy seems to be a Spanish company.
It does Never Twice the Same Colour as well.Ampix0 wrote:

You know, I work at a bestbuy, and I never knew they had a model without the 1TB hard drive, this is much more affordable, and wow, even plays MKVs? that's insane. I am pretty interested, shopping around now.fredjam wrote:Check out the Western Digital WD TV Live, if its available in the USA.
I just bought the new WD Live TV. I think the wifi capability is worth it since ill be able to FTP to is easily. Also I read there is a torrent client. I don't have another extra portable HDD (i need my external on my PC). but assuming I end up liking the way it functions ill trade up to a portable HDD from the flashdrive im about to put in lol.dancytron wrote:If you want even cheaper, you can get the original WDTV (no network support) for $35 or so on ebay.
Both versions are well hacked with homebrew operating systems. I've had my original WDTV since they were they were new with a network dongle running off NFS shares on my PC.
