Anyone has WD TV? This is HD Media Player and will play from Blue ray rips(H.264) to pic from a USB HD. Check out:

Amazon.com: Western Digital WD TV HD Media Player: Electronics

More info at: MaddHat.com Blog Archive New WD Media Player Reviewed, Stripped Naked

Seems to be a nice product for our Plasma and LCDs

ANy reviews or pointers?

There is a thread on this, checkout

Mods: Can we merge these 2 threads please.

From what I see, if you can increase your budget Popcorn Hour is far superior. It can play a wider range of formats.
Moreover in future if Blu-Ray disks become cheaper, with a PCH if you have an external USB Blu Ray-D , you can just insert the BR-Disks and play it directly via USB.
WD , you have to rip the disks etc..

PCH also offers wireless n/w , Music can easily be streamed. HD video upto 720p it streams wireless, 1080 I think it may be slow.
