I have no idea about Netflix though, since I don't subscribe to it. Sorry.

The A-110 is what I have. It plays pretty much everything the WD plays. I feel like the scaler is a tad bit better in the A-110. I've only come across one type of WMV that the PH doesn't like but it doesn't play on the WD either. The two features that got me to pony up for the PH was the fact that it can play WMA Pro audio and the network access. If you're a computer tinkerer, setting up NFS is awesome. No more copying to portable hard drives. I just browse everything on all the drives connected to my desktop computer from my couch. After a couple seconds of buffering, I'm off and playing. Even 1080p 8mb/s files play fine over 802.11G WiFi. I'm probably gonna end up going w/ a wired network since I do get very occasional stutters. I haven't installed a HD in it yet cause I've been reading about potential heat issues. I've just been happy with network access. One caveat about it, the PH remote royally sucks. The button layout is horrible.

:) I've had one since last November. It's a great little device but there are some files that it doesn't play. I bought a Popcorn Hour a couple months ago cause it does a lot more and plays a few more types of files. But it costs a lot more too.

RE: The 360 & PS3, I think these gaming systems are on the right track as far as being able to serve as a media center. I've just found their support of file formats & codecs a little limiting. I don't have a 360 but I do have a PS3 and it's great when the files are supported.

mbaya: I can't help you w/ the delay, but I did figure out a trick to get clips in a folder to play sequentially. If you go into the options menu while the first clip is playing, select the "repeat" option (turn on the time display first to see what you've selected). If you set it to repeat all, it won't have the number 1 in the icon, then your clips will play sequentially.

Rome, the only WMVs my WD player chokes on are those that use WMAP (Windows Media Audio Professional) as the audio codec. It should handle most any video type unless Videobox does something really funky with their rips.

Try searching for an older program called GSpot (yeah, the name is very ironic considering what we discuss on this site). It hasn't been updated in a while, but it tells you the audio & video type so you can check and see if it's actually supported by WD. Probably not judging by your experience. If you have the VLC player, hitting control-i during playback will also give you some stream info.

Video conversion is very processor heavy, so yeah, it can take a long, long time. I have a 2.4ghz Cord 2 Duo and most videos process slightly faster than real time depending on the settings (i.e. a 30 minute clip takes a little less than 30 minutes to convert). I try not to convert video though, cause it makes a noticeable hit in image quality.

Anyone use a hardware media player on their TV?

One thing I've always considered doing, but never got around to, was playing some of the stuff I've downloaded on my TV. A year and a half ago I bought a Pioneer plasma and after watching some HD content and the Super Bowl, my next inclination was obviously to think about porn. :)

I experimented with plugging in different laptops and was underwhelmed. It's unnecessarily complex and not easy to control from your couch with limited cable lengths. I thought about building an HTPC (home theater PC) but they get pretty expensive, pretty fast for such a niche product.

Last November, Western Digital released a small box they call the WD TV that lets you plug in USB hard drives and play videos, music & photos from it. The music & photo playback doesn't interest me at all but the video playback was a gold mine. And the price was reasonable at $99. This thing plays almost everything you can throw at it. If you can imagine downloading the latest HD porn and seeing it on such a big screen, it's exactly the revelation you can imagine.

After having it for about 5 months now, I'm starting to think that this is a great idea and just ordered a Popcorn Hour A-110 ($215). It purports to play everything the WD does and adds a couple extra video and audio formats! It also lets you stream stuff over your network directly from your computer.

So does anyone else use their TV to watch the stuff they get online? Porn or otherwise?

You get used to having externals when you have a Mac. It's one of the prices we learn to pay after drinking the kool aid. Brainwashing does have its associated costs after all.

I did a quick search for that rack and I must say, if they ever made one like that with a FW interface and the ability to span them JBOD style, I'd be all over it.

Dontcha love it when almost-year-old threads come back to life? I think badandy400 needs a new pseudonym: bad_ASS_andy400. Seriously, that's some serious storage there, I bow down to you. Seriously. :)

My current setup is a 24" 2.4ghz iMac. But I've got like 4 laptops and 3 other desktop computers (most of which sit in my basement gathering dust). I thought I had an unjustifiable amount of porn storage, but now... not so much.

1 320GB internal, everything else external
2 LaCie 500GB FW800 drives (both have dual 250s in a striped RAID)
1 LaCie 500GB USB
2 Seagate 750GB Freeagent drives one USB one FW400
1 Seagate 300GB FW400
1 Maxtor 1TB Onetouch USB
1 Maxtor 120GB FW400
1 Cavalry USB SATA dock with a pair of WD 1TB Green drives
1 Simpletech 320GB 2.5" portable USB
1 WD 80GB Passport 2.5" portable USB
1 Iomega 250GB eGo 2.5" portable USB

That all adds up to something close to 7.4 terabytes. I haven't done all the math but I probably have about 2 to 3 TB unused across all the disks. I'd estimate about 2/3 of what I have stored is porn with the rest being music & mainstream movies.

Agree on the fake boobs. That's easily my #1 turn-off. I'd rather see natural A cups than fake DDs.

Even still... 2 gigs?? I can do that in half an hour if their servers are fast enough. Your reasons still stand.

If you join a site and then discover afterward that your favorite DL manager doesn't work, there's a Firefox extension called DownThemAll that's been known to work. I haven't needed it yet though. Since it's embedded into a real browser it's harder for sites to figure out that it's a DL manager.
