  • I like the SnaZio Net DVD Cinema but it doesn't support WMV HD
  • I like the Buffalo LinkTheater but it doesn't upscale regular DVDs
The Zen player (from Australia) is currently being delayed until October 2005 because it has HDMI output and the standards are difficult either to set up or adhere to (according to Zen), but if you want HDMI then the Zen will be your best bet. It'd be mine too but October? I can't wait 'til October!

The new HD Snazio SZ1350 is delayed again, no date now. Buffalo, I dunno, just doesn't seem to be as good as it should be.

The Linkplayer2 now supports WMV-HD files with DRM copy protection.... The new June 3rd firmware is amazing this player plays it ALL!!!

Increbibly high bitrate files.. and it plays 1080p WMV-HD files perfect!!! You just stream the file to the server using Windows Media Connect and it loads without a hitch! Runs perfectly smooth.... I myself don't really use WMV-HD, but it supports .TS streams VERY VERY WELL! Pick it up now.. if your in Canada here is an awsome place...

It does not have DVI only component but don't let that fool you, I have a Hitachi 46F510 with DVI & Componenet, 1080i component looks amazing.... who cares if its not DVI....

I record HD movies from Dish Network HD satellite receiver to my PC as MPEG2 transport stream 1920x1080 then burn them to a regular DVD-R as MPEG2 TS files, usualy it take one double sided DVD-R, So I want to play back those movies without turning on the computer which of the above players can play my discs.

I still cannot get the DRM-protected WMV-DVD's to play flawlessly on the iodata. Even with a beefy 3ghz cpu serving the licence through Windows Media Connect video plays but is very choppy and audio sync is off. The most flawless video I've seen play was MAYBE 2 minutes of the Coral Reef Adventure WMV-DVD.

Has anyone played these WMV-DVD's start-to-finish flawlessly?
the other method is to somehow crack the drm-protection (which is causing this mess in the first place) but is proving to be difficult.

I am pleased with the LP2 with all of it's other capabilities but not at all with these (rather expensive) WMV-DVD's I've purchased.

1. Zensonic Z500 cannot upconvert through component.
2. has a lot of DOA issues.
3. Not available worldwide.
4. Has no support of NTFS partition of attached USB2.0 hard drive

However:
Snazio Net DVD Cinema HD SZ1350
1. can upconvert using component and can be made region free.
2. No widespread issues.
3. Available worldwide.
4. Has DVI output.
5. Plays WMV9 HD, HD Divx, HD Xvid, .ts files
6. decodes WM Audio Pro 9.1 and can output it with supplied separate 5.1 audio outputs.
7. The only player which supports NTFS partition of attached USB2.0 hard drive
8. Plays double layer DVDRs perfectly.
8. Cheaper, than Zensonic 500.

Avel Linkplayer2 and Buffalo LinkTheather cannot be considered as competitors.
Buffalo cannot upconvert commertial DVDs at all.
Avel has no wireless support and cannot play double layer DVDRs.

So the choice is yours.

Digital CowBoy may be your right choice. You can choose either a DVD or HD drive to put inside, and out comes a full HD video (1920x1080). Connect this to your HDTV set watch all your ripped movies. The formats supported are: "Mpeg-1/2/4, DVD (IFO, ISO, VOB), WMV-HD, MP3, WMA and OGG.

By the way, I have never used this DVD player before, I just find this DVD player through Google, I hope it can help you. Good luck.
