Summary: Update 1: I am changing my review from 5 stars to 2 stars. This thing is just plain awful. Shows files that arent even on my drive, SLOW INDEXING, remote is worthless....overall junk. Returning it soon. If you really want a HTPC, build one yourself and run Boxee..... This bad boy works exactly as portrayed. Minimal network setup, ease of installation, and sleek looks all make this a great media player.
Summary: I was having problems with movies disengaging while being played on my Western Digital multimedia player (WD). (They'd just disengage & go back to the main menu, for no apparent reason.

Summary: This is a product for highly qualified installers. A senior citizen like myself is left having to get expert advice due to the poor quality of the instructions. They should be as simple as possible not assume extensive familiarity with the media. Also, if you enable HDMI sell the unit with the cable. Charge extra but don't confuse the issue.
