Summary: I heard about this product from a friend of mine. This product was able to play all formats I have. There were files that the audio were not playing. I had to download some upgrade from the internet and did some adjustment on the audio settings and after that it was all wonderful. The best part was the HDMI output and I connected it to my 7.1 surround sound. The video is fed through an EPSON projector on 120" screen. It is perfect.
Summary: This thing is really amazing. It has played everything I have thrown at it, even BD ISO files. The Blu-Ray video (1080p 24 fps) and audio (DTS-HD MA and Dolby True HD pass through) is incredible. But...and this is a major but...this gadget is not a plug-and-play device. It must be configured to do what you want it to do and that is not always intuitive or easy.
Summary: This is a monster of a player. At a size of a bulky DVD/Blueray player it surely is large. Don't let that bulkyness fool you! This networked media tank (NMT), as Syabas calls it, plays everything you can throw at it. Bought a rear fan to cool the thing (not needed) but to be on the safe side as one of my previous media playeres got toasted. Firmware updates are easy and frequent.
Summary: I had a WDTV Live Hub prior to this, and decided to take a chance on this unit, after becoming frustrated with the inept blu-ray ISO support by WD, and the way the music browser presented music. I had a couple of Blu-ray ISO rips that would not work very well on the WDTV Live Hub. Even when copied to the local disk, which took forever. I got an internal disk for this and I've not used it yet.
Summary: I have it for more than year already. Got it when they came out last august. Never had any of the issues that i am reading about. Watched hundreds of movies on it. Added 500GB HDD and bluray drive. Got it with IRK-200 and i am using it CAT5 cable so no issues with networking. I will get 2 more for presents to my family since the firmware is already mature enough. And PCH are kind a keeping it updated.
Summary: I bought my PCH from Amazon 5 months ago. Things were a little rough at first. The firmware back then couldn't reliably play BD rips from SMB shares, and I had to add a hard drive to the PCH for local playback. Also, the PCH had to be rebooted a couple times a week. With the new firmware that came out 2-3 months ago, life is really good and reboots have become rare.
Summary: This box rules, I like all the apps that you can load. I even made my own RSS app and had it loaded to the box. I have canceled my cable TV and now only watch my popcorn hour box. This box I hope is just the beginning for these guys. Please do us all a favor in TV/Movie/Music land keep these boxes coming.
Summary: This hands down is better than Seagate media\WD TV Live Media Player it plays EVERY single file I throw at it and has Internet Radio, with Netflix and YouTube coming soon was just announced. I bought almost every product to compare and in the end, this is the most expensive but it by far the best looking and feature rich of the bunch. The C-200 has plenty of room for 2 internal Hard Drives and you can add a BluRay drive to it if that's your cup of tea.
Summary: I got the C-200 about 2 weeks ago and WOW what a great unit! The bad reviews on here are usualy user error. They are usualy the ones who download there "backup copy" (Caugh) and to find out there are a ton of junk encodes out there. There are a few issues that are being worked on by sybas that come out as F/W updates but nothing major. The suport is great on the NMT Forum and alot of good info on there to read. All in all I love this player and I would buy another.
