only 2 knocks i've found on the pch:


1. it runs a little hot with some hard drives, other NMT have more aluminium or a fan and these are presumed to run a little cooler


2. cannot power on/off with the remote control, i'm unsure if any other NMT's can do this

My primary goal is to play H.264 .MKV files at 1080p. My AVR does not decode TrueHD or DTS-MA.

depends how important for you is _full_ support of Bluray rips (with all the functions of real BD discs) and playback of commercial Bluray discs of any region. This is not supported by NMT. Check this:

more expensive of course, but it's really _much_ more than Popcorn. TrueHD and DTS-MA are supported, 7.1 analog output is there. Also h/w upgradable (extension miniPCI slot and backside panel for changable connectors): can choose WiFi ver. n, Gbit or 2 x eSATA ports in addition.

This is the most important what I like. The rest you can check on Hi-Jack's site if you want...


The only real drawback here: need to connect HDDs to this model via USB.

If it's bad for you HDI has also Dune HD Center model which addresses this issue: http://www.hdi.co.il/fullhd_players/...hd_center.html

(the same f/w, but totally different design and HDD which can be instered inside like via mobile rack, with hot swap)

But more expensive...
