I can't seem to find the ideal player. I really have minimal requirements. Can any of the players meet these:
1) plug directly into hdmi (tv doesn't have usb)
2) mirror my computer
3) stream videos from my computer, but not mirror
that's it. I don't really care for netflix access or anything else. I was thinking my best option may be appletv with airparrot, but since i have a pc that only allows for mirroring and not simply streaming.
Guts of Android tablet minus the display with a HDMI output instead. Full access to Google Play store unlike official GoogleTV boxes so you can get stuff like Splashtop and other display mirroring services.
You can use a USB wireless mouse and keyboard to control Android.
