Thanks for the replies!
With future proof I mean.. I don't have a fullHD tv but I still want 1080p support so when I buy a fullhd tv, I don't have to buy a new media player. And I have a 2.0 audio system now, but I want it to support both aac and ac3 5.1 so if I want to upgrade to 5.1 then I can. You know, things like that. That's what makes the media player future proof to me.
Yes my budget is limited, but I want to get the best I can for $150.
For now I think it's between wd tv live gen3 and popbox v8. I can't find so many english reviews of popbox v8 on youtube, but I'll see if i find some more text reviews. I will also compare the specs. I'm gonna read some more reviews about them and then make a pro and cons list.
Is there any more player I should take a look at? Is there and coming media player just around the corner that I should wait for?
