post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hello, i got rid of my PS3 and my 360 cant read divx anymore since it has been banned... I know that the PS3 what the best possible streaming way (i may be wrong to lol).

Well id like some suggestions of something that have HDMI and can play MKV, H264, X264 and handle DTS or dolby 5.1 and is 1080P.

Thanks guys

When your Xbox 360 is connected to a media center pc it can read SOME mkvs. I was surprised to see that it could but it does, I think DTS works too. I've heard good things about the Western Digital box.

htpc is the best, because it can support the most file types and can use very high resolutions.

WDTV Live Media Player OR Asus O!Play.

i personally like the WDTV Live player, but it doesnt have wifi.. If thats an issue, get the O!Play.
