This unit sells at the same low cost as the WD and looks much more capable.
Check it out at http://www.xtreamer.net/
and let me know what you all think?
This device has all what we need in WDTV you are native english reader try find a review and experiences or other customer feedbacks WDTV has a good picture quality and good sigma microcode but there is missing support for network / I am repeating always this was a fault. Xtreamer is RTL based special edittion custom chip Sigma isnt open but is well tested
who will buy Xtreamer and compare it with SMP86xx player
))) ? I am interested in
I am looking for open platform longtime with access to player API and I found long time ago this device this year will have new media chip is more expensive then Xtreamer but is fully open! SDK python script etc
Disadvantaged are price and power consuption
Power Voltage: 12Vdc
Operating (Playback): 20W
Operating temperature (max): 45°
Sigma 8634 will be upgraded on 865x this year.http://www.blobforge.com/
this device has also native HTTPS streaming support from PC current model is baed on SMP8654
