Set-top Box

Post by Robert Paulson » Fri Sep 28, 2012 10:52 am

Anyone use a set-top box?

I travel a lot for work and many places we don't have the option for internet. So I bought one of these, The Argosy 2tb box. I've been using it for almost 2 years and I love it. But it barely does Youtube, and it doesn't do Netflix so it's almost just limited to things you own and download and put on it, nothing really streaming from the net.

To explain more, I use MakeMKV to rip the movies and I also have a NAS that I use to serve the movies to the box. I love that I never have to search for a DVD box and I can take the media anywhere. I can also download media from the net and play that as well.

Anyone use one of these they like more? I was looking at Boxee.

$nave has one. I built an HTPC...not cheap, but it really works quite well.

There was a big sale on old Google TV or Roku boxes not long ago on amazon or somewhere...might check to see about that with a quick search.

I have a couple. None are perfect, but I like the WDLive brand. I have the one with a terabyte disk installed.
