Hi , Im new to this forum.
I must say that I found a lot of interesting and useful things in it.
Im using WDTV media player from december mostly to play back HDV video with outstanding results. In fact I replaced a dedicated PC (U$S900 value) in my Video Room, with a significant improvement of performance and quality. I love this product.
I have it connected to an  HD projector in a dedicated room.
Again : Thanks for the idea of forming this forum.

Hello, everybody. I am Greg from the Detroit area, and I just got my WDTV last week. Quite simply, I love it. Western Digital is first to market with a HTPC killer, and having bought this thing, I'm really glad that I didn't go through the expense and trouble of putting together a home theatre PC.

I get the impression that I use the device a little bit differently from a lot of folks here, in that I prefer to use a simple flash drive instead of a dedicated USB hard drive to store my files. Anime files-- specifically 720p MKV files-- are my poison. I support the domestic American companies by buying licensed DVDs on these shores, and enjoy the new stuff as it comes off of Japanese TV via the fansubbing groups. Even on a simple budget Olevia 37" TV (which is actually "768p" rather than 720/1080p), files look great. (I'll buy a huge Samsung LED TV when I'm independently wealthy.)

Now that I have this thing, I want Hollywood to catch up and offer us the opportunity to buy DRM-free 720/768/1080p movies and TV shows in high-bitrate MKV format.

Avijeet - Thank you for the warm wellcome, in Romania i paid for it 110 EUR, that's the lower price for WD, but comparing to Popcorn Hour witch is 240EUR, and Tvix 6500 - 340 EUR, the WD it's awsome , i mean comparing price/quality. I agree that bouth tvix and popcorn are a little more advanced than WD ( DTS decoding, LAN, autorun, lcd display) but i don't need them, that's why WD fits perfectly. I am a stereophile guy, i use a CEC 330 stereo amplifier, two Triangle standfloor speakers, and a Harman Kardon DAC. I output the sound from WD in my DAC trough optical output , and after that on amplifier. I will open the WD soon to see if i can improve the digital output quality, and if i'll succed i'll tell you what i had done. Music it's the only thing i am using this media center, i rip my cd collection, and listen them hours and hours without getting bored ( 12 tracks on a cd - sucks) :D
Cheers bro .... !

Just joined this group. I have two 1tb MyBook drives and the WD TV HD unit. The unit is attached to my Sanyo 42" HDTV with a HDMI cable. Currently have the 08 beta version running on my unit. I have all of my movies in VOB format (a single file).
