Hello all...it's been a while.
I've been toying with the idea of using a media player for watching my videos from hard drive as opposed to burning dvds. Now, I figure if anywhere I can find people with experience in digital video, it's here.
So here's where I'm at. I bought a WD HT tv model and it seemed to work well. I had no trouble watching my .vob files (on a "regular" tv). The only problem I had was reliability. It stopped playing files after a week.
I got a replacement and it died after two days. If you've hung in with my story of woe here, there's a point. And the point is I'd like to ask for advice if anyone here's had any experience with any brand of players, especially
on the reliability front. I've been eye-balling a player by Lacie and another by Argosy which can be purchased with built-in HDs. The first brand I'm familiar with and the second not. Though, brand name doesn't seem to
have mad a difference with my first choice. For the moment, HD video is not a big priority, just simple reliability, ease of use and that it can play pretty much any format though the "standard" ones are more important.
Thanks in advance for any advice.
