I currently use a Dlink DSM-330 which I am considering replacing with WD TV HD Live, and I wanted to check a couple of things. One is that on my DSM, it decodes on my PC, and displays on the tv upstairs requiring specific codecs to be loaded on my home PC. The problem is that the .mkv file codec conflicted with what was required to play mkv files on my ps3, which is very important and as such I don’t want a similar situation with the new box.
Can someone tell me if I require codecs on my PC to use WDTV, and does anyone use a wdtv live and ps3 to play mkv H.264 files without conflict?
Also I see my retailer bundling the Belkin N+ USB Wireless dongle with them for a discounted rate, will any brand do or does it need to be specifically one of these? Has anyone used these dongles and played 720p and 1080p videos’ ok?
Any other gotcha’s I need to worry about. I run Windows 7 x64 on my 3 PC’s.
