Which media 3D media streamer has the best & most friendly interface?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hello people,

I'm looking for a new media streamer. At the moment I'm using a boxee box which works great and is easy to use. But now I have a 3D tv and unless boxee has an 3d option it doesn't work with my tv. Probably because of the hdmi 1.3.
My new streamer must have an interface which self indexes tv shows and movies, easy to use and, nice to look at?
I'm thinking about the popcorn hour a400 but I find it very expensive in comparison to others.
Hopefully someone can give me some advice what to look at/ buy.

Thanks

Boxee can play SBS and top/bottom 3D formats, but not full frame-packed 3D Blu-ray ISO's. Re: UI, it's personal preference, but both PCH and Mede8er are nice. With Mede8er, you can additionally use nice community-made skins and 'Favorites' (shares) icons.

When you say a UI that indexes tv/movies, are you talking about doing this all from the player (i.e. no PC involved)? If so then PCH A400 is your only real option via their NMJv2 jukebox. With Mede8er you need to set up the jukebox from a PC

Hi Dbone,
I forgot to say that I stream from a NAS, so I indeed indexing without using a PC.

So a PCH A400 would be the choice. Just keep in mind that streaming 3D Blu Rays over the network is a bit problematic right now

Thanks!
And what's the problem with streaming 3D br's? The size?

Issues with network performance because 3D BRs can reach much higher bitrates then you typical 2D BRs (so could lead to a lot of stuttering, dropped audio, etc...)
