Hi,

I am looking for a wireless multimedia player to stream movies and photos or even music from my laptop to our LCD TV.
I found so far two models, both would be good, but I was wandering if anybody has any other recommendation or any experience with these.

1. Tvix HD M-6500A

2. MVIX MX-780





I is a kollege stoodent. Bee nice.

I have the same question. I have a D-Link DSM-320 Wireless Media Player. Everything plays fine except XviD avi's which it doesnt support. The latest XviD files play pretty good but depending on the encoding compression, some avis play perfect and others with a lot of stutter which means i have to set it to transcode but the output is mpeg and noticeably horrible quality.

Might nosey those 2 models also Aloha :)

I have a popcorn hour a100 - Not wireless - But does work with a USB wireless adapter apparently.
As far as video playback - I think its great! Check it out at www.popconhour.com i think?

Plenty of user reviews on utube/cnet & also they have a sub forum here.

Cheers

I've read some comments about the Mvix yesterday and I dont recommend that.
Many people said it has a lot of bugs, the company doesn't do proper firmware updates, etc

I believe we would have the same issue with the Tvix which is made by Dvico.
BTW both products made in Korea.

After all I migth stick with Lacie's media hard drive players: LaCinema Premier or LaCinema rugged. No wireless though.

The new Popcorn Hour A110 looks very very reasonable.

Thanks a lot for the thread.

I'm thinking of getting a multi media player as well but still looking around so I'll definitely be keeping an eye on the info here Smile

Have owned and used a Mediagate 350 for the last 2 years. Never had any problems, plays most file types and firmware is updated on a regular basis.

I believe the 350 had been superseeded with a HD version now and the MG800D which supports N wireless and built in Torrent client.

I found the Western Digital's Media Player a good solution too. And it's the cheapest.
