Thread: Network USB Media Player

  1. #1

    Default Network USB Media Player

    Hi,

    Looking for a network USB media player. But not sure which one is good.

    Short listed models are:
    1) Astone Media Gear AP-300 Full HD 1080p Home Media Center
    2) Astone Media Gear AP-110D USB & Network 1080p HD Media Player
    3) WD TV Live

    Not considering Seagate's solution cos it is a docking station compatible only to Seagate's portable HDDs. I am using WD and others.

    Do share your experiences and views.

    No one owns/uses any network media players?

    Note that when considering such a device, check if it is able to play DTS encoded videos. My brother has a WD player (can't remember exact model) and it couldn't play DTS encoded videos on its own (meaning without an AV receiver capable of decoding the DTS signal).

    I'm using an eGreat M34A. Thus far it's able to play all formats I've thrown into it.

    :Later,

    The Astone offerings can play DTS encoded files. Looks like either one will be the choice.

    Just check with a friend, for WD offerings, have to do a firmware upgrade then can play DTS files.
