Wd Tv HD Media Player Should be Integrated Into All Hdtvs

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  May 26, 2009


I hope that in the future we can just plug in our storage devices into our HDTVs and access the stored media without the need for a separate gadget. I also hope that in the future I’ll have an HDTV. For now I’ll have to dream on, but HDTV owners can get the next best thing: Western Digital’s TV HD media player.

Setting the WD TV up is simple: just connect it to your TV – it supports HDMI and composite A/V – and then to a USB drive and voila, easy access to your stored media. The My Book external HDD in the picture is not included with the WD TV, but that’s a good thing since it helps keep the WD TV’s cost down.

The WD TV supports a ton of formats and codecs, like MP3, WMA, OGG, WAV/PCM/LPCM, AAC, FLAC, Dolby Digital, AIF/AIFF, MKA, JPEG, GIF, TIF/TIFF, BMP, PNG, MPEG1/2/4, WMV9, AVI (MPEG4, Xvid, AVC), H.264, MKV, MOV (MPEG4, H.264), MTS, TP, TS, ABCDEFG you get the idea. It also recognizes subtitle files. And of course, no HD playback device would be complete without full HD 1080p resolution.

Th WD TV looks like a nifty device for people who don’t rely too much on streaming content. You can order one now at Western Digital’s online store for $130 USD.
