Sigma 8635 - like WD TV HD rev1, hardly WD TV 3.

A good candidate for an Engadget "Keepin' It Real Fake" post. Some Chinese manufacturer has simply nicked the appearance of the WD enclosures. They even ripped off the appearance of the WD Passport drive. Trying to fool buyers into thinking it is a WD product.

It supports DVD .ISO, so no way WD has anything to do with it.

No networking, and DVB-T is not an American (as in not used here) standard. Pass. There are better choices.

Looks kinda interesting actually. If they can really fill the gaps WDTV & Live have, more power to them, knock-off or not.

Heh, it certainly looks like the WDTV, box and all.

And DVB-T - used by a billion people worldwide - clearly a big market for this.

If a carpenter makes a door he should get money every time someone uses it - he's also an "artist".

I don't know why more NMT manufacturers don't offer ATSC or DVB-T add-on modules like TViX. Adding recorded HDTV, granted OTA only, would make these players more appealing as all-in-one players I'd think.

Wistron Made the WDTV for Western Digital, Maybe they sold the design to another producer?

@talas, what can you tell us about a new wd player in Q 2?

You wait 4 months to make your first post and its an attack on a forum member for asking a question. Were you waiting for the right time? Weirdo

The Asus O!Play has an eSATA port and plays DVD ISOs. I imagine it would be easier to find one to buy, better supported in terms of warranty/returns, and probably much cheaper at $90.

Look who's talking. I was sarcastic as an answer to an obviously misleadingly chosen topic name, but you failed to recognize it and started calling names. Keep thy cool.
BTW it's way over 4 months, but I preferred to keep read-only, I've registered in October so I'd able to open attached files.

Add-on or with onboard DVB-T support, there will be several of these:

google

Egreat EG-M1

Novatron IAMM NTR 82/83

Ellion hmr-600h

I think these are all Realtek based...

Only problem it that the Asus is Reatek based and I require a Sigma unit for my needs.

Their A8HD Plus has a RTD1073 Realtek chip and ethernet
A8HD Plus still looks like a WDTV Live ripoff though.

Another media player with DVB-T support.
Unfortunately at the price everybody sells them, you can buy a separate descent media player and a DVB-T recorder...
