    Tip and a question

    Tip:
    www.demonoid.com is open for new registrations after a long time

    Question:
    How do I replay torrents that have been constructed from HDTV or BluRay programmes on a normal television set?

    You want a media tank. They will plug into a normal TV using component cables (like a normal DVD player) or into an HDTV via HDMI.

    I have the Western Digital TV media tank bought in Panthip for 4,000 odd Baht and it plays all of the files I have fed through it so far. I download then extract x.264 files to my external 2.5" HDD and plug it into the media tank via USB, which is in turn plugged into the TV via HDMI.

    It has been a worthwhile investment and I have almost 2TB worth of HD content so far.

    yes, it is a nice little product, almost bought one, but decided to go with my Mac-mini instead, more open

    also the Western Digital will drop frames when playing certain HD, this is particularly true for 1080p or 1080i

    The mac-mini will swallow everything, it's a nice little file whore

    Never noticed any dropped frames even with full 1080p blu-ray rips over 14GB.

    I had the X-Streamer before and it was inferior IMO.

    maybe with higher compression they will drop though, I think the 10GB 1080p I tested, the pics dropped quite a few times
