Very new too this. I was just wondering if it is possible to connect an external hard drive via HDMI to the OPP 103 and use it as a server?

You can connect a HD via USB. The drive is not visible from elsewhere on the network, so the player is not a server.

HDMI is for audio/video, not disc access.

The player is also an SMB and DLNA client. New in the -103: It is a DLNA Digital Media Renderer, meaning you can push files to it from elsewhere on the network.

Yes, presuming the file format is supported.

Yes. Currently it is not in force for MKV or M2TS files, but I would not be surprised if the studios require that in the future.

Any suggestions for brand? I have a Peachtree Nova pre/220 with the 103 (in the mail on it's way as we speak).

 

If I understand correctly, I can remotely access whatever is on that hard drive from a smartphone and look at the content on the TV? Do I connect the HD via USB and the Oppo via Coaxial to the Nova Pre? I think that's right. Right?

 

I'm so new to this but it's awesome.

 

Would I be better with a mini PC? or a HTPC? I figured for the cost of a decent 1TB porable HD, how could I go wrong? I hope I'm understanding correctly.

 

Unfortunately, I ordered speakers from Jim Salk and it's going to be a while before I hear, or see, any of this. It's killing me! I'm learning so much while I wait.

 

You're all so informative and I'm grateful.
