We have steered many of our clients to the purchase of the WD TV box for watching their home movies on MP4 H264 files. We love the open ended system that allows folks to play hours of their videos from film and videotape that has been saved to MP4 files or other digital formats. We’ve even posted it to our blog.

You are right, I like this device, I am encoding all my DVD’s so I do not have to open the player and change discs, also it will preserve the discs. I am using it primarily to watch movies, and I dont know why it took so long to make this aparatus.
