Is there any Media players that play .iso files that have a gigabit network card. I would like the oplay, but have been reading some posts about it not doing so well with .iso files...

I know BD Iso support isn't a big deal to you, but even so the list of players out there that support BD ISO's with the full BD Menu supported is very small. Like 3 total.

I would take a hard look at the AC Ryan PlayonHD. It doesn't have a gigabit nic, but it does everything else you want better than almost any other player out there...and it plays .iso files with full menu support, unlike the wdtv. It also supports blu-ray iso, but with only lite menu support (for now). Plus you get internet radio, strong network support, can have an internal HHD for more storage...

Popcorn Hour a-200 running YAMJ.
I tried a patriot box office, WDTV, and then decided to stop messing around and just get the one I know works.
Put a 1.5tb hard drive in it, and loaded up all my SD DVD .iso's and it works great.

I just checked the specs on Popcorn Hour A-200 and it looks really impressive and has a host of extras compared to WD TV Live for $ 50 more. (not to mention you can mount a HD right in it)
I am still not clear on whether it will offer full dvd menu support for SD dvd's and for BD .iso files.
Can someone please confirm this?
I thought i had found my player in WD TV live, but now with the lack of menu support, I need to look at other options and there's a ton of them out there. I am sick of researching now, just want to settle on something quickly.
Key requirement for me is that once I put SD dvd files on the Media Player, the wife should be able to find them without hassle and be able to play them without much fuss. I don't have any BD rips yet, but I am sure they are coming so would want to be able to access them the same way including the menus.

The A-200 does not offer full menu support for BD ISO's. The Popcorn Hour C-200 does but costs more than the A-200.
For what you're looking for the Dune 3.0 is the only way to go. Pricey, $350, but does everything well, right out of the box.

Thanks for confirming that for BD iso's. I am assuming it still supports SD iso's. Also, you mentioned it does not offer "full support", does this mean that it does offer some support but not full, meaning some type of way to access BD iso's? And will it do 1080P resolution? It is strange but they don't list that anywhere in the tech specs.
I just looked at Dune and seems like a great all in one type of product and there is one with the BD player built-in for $ 450. (this may work out great since I have yet to buy a BD player)
I guess its decision time, either go with a Sony BD player + PH A-200 ($ 380 total minus the BD iso support) or Dune Prime 3.0 for $ 450.
Which setup would have the most versatility and ease of use? Any recommendations?

Do these media players that handle .iso files also handle VIDEO_TS folders?
Will WD TV Live play the largest title set from a VIDEO_TS folder?
