I was looking for a Media Player that 1. accessed my videos, misic and photos stored on my NAS easily 2. was simplicity itself to set up 3. had a really easy to use user interface 4. gave me access to a wide range of media-related apps.

This Western Digital TV HD box is really amaziing
Plug in a USB hard drive (or two) and it will automatically sort and index whatever is on the drive for viewing directly to your TV through an HDMI cable.

The remote is not 100% but is simple to use and the on screen menus are very pleasing. I have two WD... (read more)
