Girlfriend is looking into buying me a set top media player to connect to my older model 40" HDTV for christmas, saving me on power/heat from my gaming system being connected to the TV for mere media playback. i'd like help hunting down what model for her to get me, since i don't want her to get ripped off and buy me overpriced junk. while linking me to USA sites is fine to help choose a device, if you're going to comment on prices please use australian online retailers/prices. TV's res is natively 1360x768, but for media use it works fine at 1080i. 1080p support would be nice for future proofing, but not necessary. Requirements: bare minimum: .avi playback HDMI output. USB input 720p playback preferred: 768p playback MKV + H264 playback, upto 1080p content. NTFS support for USB drives. perfect: 1080i/p playback 10 bit H264 playback (does this even exist in media boxes yet?) subtitles on MKV/H264 SPDIF output for DD/DTS for my Z5500's wifi N out of the box. built in sata HDD port. edit: streaming support to PS3 over wifi. so far the best i can find is the patriot box office HD (bundled with wifi N adaptor) for $110 Au http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=172&products_id=12995 any other suggestions for devices? known problems with the patriot bo HD?
