Excerpt: it's an ok little box.pros: i like how it has netflix and the ability to play more file formats.it has youtubecons: browsing through files is slow.it feels like u have to press the remote hard just to register the command.i found it hard to believe that the 50 dollar roku LT unit has better picture quailty than wdtv live streamer for netflix.
Summary: As an all around player I like my old O!play better, I like how you can set skip intervals on that one and skip through the files. HMDI audio passthrough seems better. I would be tempted to try the new one that does Netflix.
Pros: -Plays lots of formats
-Plays Netflix Canada
Cons: -Power up brings the user interface to it's knees while it rescans my NAS.
-Indexing doesn't seem very good, every single file on the NAS seems to show up as a 'new' file
-Can't handle indexing my music library, just hangs
-HDMI passthrough is horrible. Just didn't work for some files, but a recent update made them start working. Now however, I get deafening blasts of noise at random places that only stops when I stop and start the playback. Optical output seems OK
Excerpt: Het apparaatje is enorm, maar dan ook werkelijk enorm traag. Indexeert opnieuw om de haverklap alle bestanden op de aangesloten HD en ook de afstandsbediening werkt met 2 sec vertraging. Dus na elke druk op de knop minimaal 2 sec wachten om te kijken of ie 't begrepen heeft. Zwaar K.
