It probably will not have any local file playback. The network connection is via wireless-n. I found one product similar to this and powered via hdmi port itself. Not yet released and probably be better than this. Its Roku stick.http://www.engadget.com/2012/01/10/roku-streaming-stick-hands-on/
http://www.businessinsider.com/equiso-amazon-pre-order-2012-7 Although there are lot of mis-information in this link and is not a game changer at all in terms of what it is providing, what striked me as interesting is how power is supplied to the device. This is because my TV is mounted in the wall and gets power from a recessed power outlest, with only one power outlet exclusively for the TV. I can plugin this device to the HDMI port of the TV and draw power from the USB...
I also created a thread asking similar question with similar requirement like no transcoding, rich interface. No one replied yet, so it looks like at this point there are no perfect solution. However I have done extensive research after that and it looks like, your best bet without converting your entire library is to use the latest WD TV live streaming with some scraping software like thumbggen. Or you can wait for all these zombie xbmc devices being developed with sigma...
Currently I have all my media in a samba share. I have Sony blu ray player and ps3 which used to stream decently using ps3 media server or serviio. I also had a dell Zino in my media room which I was not using much other than as backstop when media streaming didnt work to ps3 or the blu-ray player. Recently I installed xbmc in the dell Zino and was amazed at its scraping capabilities and impressed with the dxva support. Now I am thinking of getting a low power NAS to...
I get lot of requests for firmware files for olevia 537h. So I have uploaded them. The firmware will let you use discrete input via logitech harmony remote.. which you can get in ebay for about $30. 537-B11_061218A_actual.zip http://www.mediafire.com/?purchy1yt8c89yb 237_242_437_537_542_Firmware Update Instructions_EN.pdf http://www.mediafire.com/?4hnlofadudq8a8j MTK_Tool.zip http://www.mediafire.com/?3at7sosqu4rgw1f USB_Drive.zip...
I have the BDP-S370 which is almost same as 470 without 3D. To get 5.1 audio from Amazon VOD, you have to go to Audio Settings ->BD Audio Mix Setting to off (by default its on). What you are doing is, you are telling the player to bitstream everything and not decode to PCM. Also to OP, I think sony BDP-S*70 would meet all your need except for netflix browsing feature. This also has BD remote app in iPhone, through which typing is lot easer.. useful for youtube app.
The outlet currently don't have any zino in stock. I wanted a basic zino for general computing purpose for my father in law. That tells me the demand for this box. I could have settled for an acer revo, but I wanted something with win 7 and DVD drive is a plus. I still believe and stand by my earlier statement ( in this thread) that for DVD or blu-Ray playback htpc can't beat stanalones in terms of error correcting or error recovery. For ripping htpc may be useful, but the...
You can buy the antenna from your local wal*mart and try it out yourself. Wal*mart sells it for $68 I think. You can return it and buy it online for cheap if you like. In any case, with wal*mart you can return the antenna without much hassles. Also, if running coax is hassle, you can always try the flat coax cable. I have mentioned it before too. Also, just for checkpoint purpose, I receive 11.x quite well after 8PM from Franklin Twp, NJ. 7 is always rock steady and 13...
You were at the right option, after "unchecking" automatic deinterlacing, you will see a slider with four possible points beneath the option. By default the slider is at Vector Adaptive, the next one at left is "Motion Adaptive" The other two are Bob and Weave. You should select "Motion Adaptive".
The deinterlacing option you have to set is "motion adaptive" instead of "vector adaptive". My config is win 7x64 (didn't do reinstall) with ccc 9.12, 3250e with 3200 gpu and 950q USB tv tuner connected to my antenna.
