Hi all
I own Oplay (Ver1) for atleast couple of years now and very happy with it.... I tried WDTV Live and did not like it so returned it because of GUI and some other problems over Oplay..... Any advice form some one who owned Oplay and liked something else on Oplay.
In Oplay if you want to change the audio from AC3 to normal you just hit "SETUP" button and movie stops right there and you chnage it from AC3 to normal or vise versa but in WD you have to stop the movie and then click one million buttons to get to setup and then again return to movie and start all over again.....
I am in need of recomendations for some other box that you have used and liked it......
Thanks to all in advance

Boxee Box, A300 from PCH. The Dune players are nice but way overpriced.

6. How much does Boxee cost?
Boxee-powered devices start at around $180, Popcorn Hour A-300 - $219.00, dune hd smart h1 ~ $262 - overpriced? I vote for Xtreamer SideWinder 3 ~ $176

I would not buy an xtreamer product for more than $100 with their string of broken promises...

There is a reason why the Dunes are more expensive... THEY WORK!

in your opinion.. boxee box should not even be mentioned in the same paragraph as the popcorn hours and dunes until they fix the sudio issue..

Apparently you have never "thrown" a blu ray rip with DTS-MA audio at it or you would not be so happy...
