As many of you know, I have a first generation xbox as my main media box. I have Avalaunch and Xbox Media Center installed on it. It is getting pretty old and I want to upgraded it. I can’t play anything HD on my 47 inch plasma TV and that bothers me.
I want to upgrade to something that will play movie files from either a CIFS share. I don’t really want the thing to have a local hard drive, and if it does, I would like it to be solid state. Like a SD card or something similar. I don’t want to build it myself, mostly cause I am lazy and don’t want to have to fiddle with it.
I was thinking about canceling my cable, so I don’t really care about DVR/PVR.
I was looking at the Roku but I don’t know anyone out there that has played with one. Also, I don’t currently have netflix.
Any body have any ideas for me ?
