Still chasing a replacement for my Western Digital TV Live player.
There seems to be a lot more of thes devices available now than when I last posted this question, hence my asking again.
First I'll restate my requirements.
All I want is a gadget that plugs into my TV, will accept a network cable that hooks it into my home LAN, and has a USB port to accept a nearby USB-docked 2TB hard drive.
These three facilities are pretty much all that my WDTVLive does for me, so they're all that I need from a new player.
It was suggested by a poster in my earlier thread that I use a Raspberry Pi, but I'd rather have something that requires less fiddling to set up.
The NVidia Shield looks pretty good, albeit a tad over-qualified, but it's fairly pricey.
Suggestions would be appreciated.
PS: Please don't hesitate to mention your own gadget that you only use for streaming video. As long as it'll also do what I want, it could be quite suitable.
