WD USB Media Player !

I have always wanted to watch stuff that i download on my tv, for ex Series like Scrubs, Futurama, Family Guy, Reaper, Grey's Anatomy, The Meantalist and so on, as well as all the movies. So when i went with Overwhelminginsanity to Eureka to see if they could hook me up with one of those dvd players that has a USB port, they told me the max that their DVD players could ahndle was 8GB USBs. I then forced my friend to drive me to Al Ghanim Electronics in Marina Mall. When i got there the sales man told me they didn't have any of those Dvds but they had a seperate Device that was made specificly for what i need. It was a Machine that turned my External Hardrive into some sort of Media Player for TV, which is exactly what it was called. Western Digital TV and HD Media Player.

So i got it, unpacked it at home and hooked it up, it was pretty simple. Once i eventually connected my 1 TB external, started going through the menu to see what is what and it was very User Friendly.

Everything was going great i watched an episode of Scrubs, and Lie to Me which togeth might have amounted to an hour and 15 mins, i decided i was going to watch American Psycho since it was highly recommended and 15-30 mins into the movie everythin shut down and rebooted. You can imagine how fustrating it can be. Whats more when trying to get back to the place in the movie i was , it took ages due to slow fast forwarding. The rebooting happened Several times and i guess its possible that it wasn't ready for a 1TB External but i am going to take it back to Al Ghani Electronics today and see if they have a solution. It was perfect but for those two things.
The rebooting and the slow fast forwarding.
If it is because myexternal was too large then i guess ill use a smaller external because this device is pretty useful.
It's priced at 34kd after discount yet im not sure whether to recommend it to Heavy users.

  1. Reaper is in trouble, its creators are leaving. While this doesn't look good for our show, you can still let the CW know you want Reaper to continue even without them.

    Please don't stay silent. They'll never know how much you'd like Reaper to stay if you never tell them. Tom Spezialy's still around, and lots of shows do just fine even after a change in the guards.
