Eminent hdMEDIA EM7285

It may not be pretty, but Eminent's EM7285 network media player is certainly advanced. Built around the Realtek RT1185 chipset, it's compatible with a huge array of files and formats. The player ships sans hard drive, but one is easily loaded into the...

Cyclone Primus 2TB Media Player

I have two of these players,1tb and 2tb. The 2tb player is now completely unusable as it refuses to recognise the hard drive either connected to computer or television. The hard drive is perfectly okay so obviously a mother board fault. On doing an...

Edision OS MINI DVB-T2/C

This box with a T2 receiver is a very bad idea. The Linux system is called Enigma2, it has a very poor sound driver for UK HD terrestrial channels, low volume and poor quality. It is not just a problem with this receiver, any Enigma2 receiver is the...

Philips NP3700

Possibly the best dedicated audio streamer around for less than £200, but it isn’t perfect

Samsung SMT-S7800

If, like me, you love technology (and raw fish) it's impossible not to like Japan, so the addition of the excellent NHK World channel to Freesat's meagre portfolio of HD channels is a welcome boost to the platform on its third birthday.

Philips HMP4000

We have 2 of these, both from Dick Smith, and both have the same annoying habit of sometimes just going into standby mode as soon as the music or video stops.... & once a unit does go to sleep, there's a 50/50 chance that it'll have to be turned off &...

Avermedia Avertv

The AVerMedia AVerTV Express HD DVR has potential, but it is very CPU intensive. If your going to use this correctly you are going to need a very powerful, and expensive, laptop to run it on. If you already have one, then great, but if not the cost may...

Western Digital TV Live Hub

The hard drive company has refreshed its streaming hardware, releasing two new boxes with improved capabilities that seem intent on out-Rokuing Roku.

Review updated 27 Nov 2012 I've always wanted a media player that will stream my blu-rays and DVDs and this does it. It is easy to set up and the performance is fair. It will stream only some blu-rays with HD audio perfectly. The interface is clean and...

NETGEAR Digital Entertainer HD EVA8000

Like MediaGate’s product, the EVA8000 can act as a USB host, but its port is conveniently located right up front. And unlike the MG-350HD, Netgear’s box can stream digital photos and digital music at the same time (it loaded images much faster, too)....

Recently we had the opportunity to review the Playon! HD and Playon! HD Mini network media players from A.C. Ryan. We were very impressed with both players given their ease of use and ability to play any media we cared to throw at them and the only...

AC Ryan Veolo

The AC Ryan Veolo manages to deliver something unique right out of the box. By using the Android OS, it manages to offer a range of features usually not present in most media hubs/players. With the operating system you get all the advantages of a...

Panasonic Smart 500 GB HDD Recorder with Freeview Play

This is a potentially good product--ruined by the poor HMI (Human Machine Interface-graphics), in particular the EPG--very difficult to read on a 47" TV from approx 18ft away. No such problem with my old Humax PVR-9200T --has the best graphics and HMI...
