Once upon a time I watched movies on a computer monitor.
Then, arbitrary decision has been purchased and connected to the TV special, which replaced the small screen in this hard business. Watching movies has become much more enjoyable.
When a computer with a TV have settled in different rooms and the usual length of VGA cable was not enough, he was replaced by a DVI-HDMI and it was even better.
However, running from your computer to your TV has to strain. Did not save even wireless keyboard and mouse.
There has matured and the idea to get a separate devaysom. Buy some Blue-Ray/DVD player - it is not our method. Record each time the disc, disc in the drive to push - in our highly technological age is no longer fashionable, and just lazy. We had something else.
The first idea was to buy just one more computer, but it also must be picked.
The idea of the second -. nettop. ! . But the doubt in terms of speed.
And then. anton_k. suggested such a thing as an interesting. Popcorn Hour S-200. He took just as read. technical characteristics. It turned out exactly what you need.
American company, do, of course, in China. Send as much direct from China. The boys no longer cope with the orders, so send lots. It's only a month.
Device was immediately installed and plugged in the TV and the modem.
Very afraid of dancing with a tambourine around the network settings, but, lo and behold, it worked immediately. He checked the firmware update through the Net, download and install the latest.
Device network sees the ball well. Now you can.
Device understands a lot of codecs and subs. The latter is in a separate file and in containers such as 'MKV' ( there are certainly exceptions).
Device draws 40 gigs Blue-Ray images with no brakes on the software that not every player is able to.
Device can go to internet, but only through a specially created for his services. Not everything always works. , And not always necessary, but not a bad idea. He even has a built- Torrent client.
Device comes without a hard disk drive and Blue-Ray/DVD, but can be connected separately in a specially reserved for this slot.
Well, all this economy well managed with its own remote control.
Now we need to think in the direction of a good sound.
