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.

thanks!

Any Android TV device can with splashtop installed for mirroring your PC, though how well it works is another matter.

Pivos XIOS if you want something that runs XBMC as well reliably under Android.

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.
