Patriot Box Office


Media streamers—devices that put your PC's video files on a big-screen TV—are emerging as the next hot product category, as more people look to move downloaded and transcoded movies from the desktop into the living room. Patriot's Box Office is a...

Wide file-format support; internal hard drive bay; HDMI cable included

Generic and clumsy menu; no Internet services; no DTS passthrough to receiver

With a street price of $100, the Box Office is competitively priced at the low end of the media-streamer spectrum. It won’t replace higher-priced alternatives, but its unique features and robust operation make it more than just a budget box.

Patriot Box Office Core


Patriot's Box Office Core is an interesting system for those just looking for an affordable, compact unit to use as a media playback device. The fact that it does not ship with a hard drive means that some assembly is required, but this is quite easy...

Compact size, Aluminum enclosure, Great set of content to get you started, Easy assembly, Open platform, Low power draw, Plays back all major formats, Usable Internet content browser, Fairly quiet operation

On-screen graphics do not do today's TVs justice, Slow at times, Remote control looks & feels very cheap, Not a very intuitive navigation (especially IMS), Not fanless

Patriot Box Office


A media player to bridge your PC and home theater.

The Box Office does function quite admirably at the task at hand after the few bumps and bruises initially getting it setup. It will play almost anything you through at it with great ease and even BD ISO's so Patriot says, although I never tested...

Patriot Box Office Media Player Review


The Patriot can pull your digital media from a variety of devices including a USB drive, a network device and the internal drive. It is truly a multi-functional device with good support for a large variety of multi-media formats. Although the plain...
