Ok, lot's of users love the PBO, but I could not get over how lame the user interface is. Seems Patriot has stopped supplying any future firmware updates for it as well. Last one was Mar 2011. Ended up purchasing a WDTV Live Streaming which I prefer over the PBO.
I seriously recommend this to all your family,friends,and Co-workers before they take it from you. lol!Controls are simple to operate.Small,lightweight,and durable.Case isn't plastic.Make sure to pick one up when it's on sale quite often.
Had trouble getting this to recognize the files on my file server, but after going through all the sharing options a second time I got everything straightened out. Works great so far. Nice picture, sound is good and the remote works well.
Decided to buy this because my TV only recognizes videos in .mpg format. So far it's performing great (except for the networking bit I mentioned earlier). Haven't tried installing an internal HDD, just been running everything through the USB so far.
Although PBO player is one of the cheaper players out there, still this does not mean it lacks any capabilities of other expensive media players. I did notice however though playing very high bit-rate mkv files through the USB connection did cause some lag in playback and some freezes at random times. But other than these small nuisances, this player has my stamp of approval, get yourself one while it is on sale
Nice unit but nothing special. Very similar to Asus O!Play. I does not save my TV settings for some reason. Tried many different combination but it always reset TV setting to 480i. Very Annoying.
