So I'm looking for a media CENTER more than a server. Like a stand alone box that I can plug a HD into and play my BD backups (some are cinavia protected), dvd backups and some avi files. So far I've backed up the entire BD disk on HD, but unsure if the media players will play the folder or I need to extract to ISO. Been reading about full menus and ISO's but I'm getting pretty confused on which player did what.
Don' t really need the server side, not streaming from a computer. Just would like to plug an external HD and go. Netflix is done on the PS3.
I've been playing with backing up Bd's lately and of course run into the cinavia problem with the PS3. Thought about going with a stand alone BD player (sony 550) which is cinavia free right now, but at some point Sony will update there firmware to enable cinavia.
Read on the WD Live forums that someone posted WD's firmware just incorporated cinavia, not sure if this is true or not.
I do like WD, only because it's cheap at $70. Not looking to spend a fortune if possible. However, I would like a quality picture with HD audio.
Right now I'm Ps3 > DVDO Duo > Denon 887
Thanks very much !!!!
