Green artifact reports only seem to appear on the DVI output with ?poor quality DVI cables? being the culprit. Since I use component video, I have never seen this issue.
I do not work for Tvix but own 2 units and am looking at a third.
I work in the Automotive industry.
I have owned roku, iodata, buffalo, dlink, mediagate, and linksys product all of which were not acceptable for my purposes.
You need to do your homework, however hard and time consimung it is and decide what you want based on the info you have at hand. If you look in the forums you will see pics of my setup's. I have never had a problem with my 5000's and things are setup perfectly. Since I have found a solution that works perfectly for my purposes and I wasted a lot of money on other inferior products, I have stopped Beta testing for these manufacturers. (At least until devices appear with h264 support).
If you did do the research you would probably find the 5000 is the generally considered the best player on the market for this useage. Look at the threads and number of postings. The Helios seems to have a lot of problems? Please point out which player is the best and why for this useage pattern???
No green jaggies, no freezing, no FF/RW, no network connection issues for me.
