    That is amazing!

    Exactly what I was looking for.

    It can do so many cool things.

    I just looked into Pivos but do not think it is as good for me as the one you have mentioned.

    On my other TV my Dune works great for me as my smart TV.
    But no netflix as of yet.
    No problem to me.

    I also question if the WD Live box would even play my files.

    Most appreciated....

    Hello,

    The manufacture just emailed me again and told me this device does not play these types of files.

    Containers to be more specific.

    Was just about to place an order.

    Now I am confused.
    From looking at SLY Soft Fourm it says ANY DVD HD puts videos in M2TS and EVO containers.
    BR menues should be supported with Android device.
    Highly doubt WD Live can.

    What can you tell me?

    Thank you

    Yes,

    I see that it should play the files I am trying to use.

    But I think Tongs007 really has an excellent point.

    An Android TV Box should play these types of files and does so much more than WDLive.

    It would seem to be poor choice to go with WD if in fact Androied box can play these files.
    Android Box you can add players to it.
    Not so with WD.

    Thank you,

    Great!

    Exactly my point.
    One can not add VLC to WDLive.
    That is exactly why Tongs007 keeps talking about Android box.
    Turns out I was speaking with another Android Dist.
    Not the one who distributes ATV devices in USA.
    I am trying to contact MyGicaUSA about ATV 1200 which is not listed on their site.

    Thank you

    yes the ATV should play the files mate
    and i dont even have VLC installed on my box as the box plays my files with itss own native media player (which is the same as the ATV as i flashed my sumvision with the ATV image)

    As I thought.

    If for some reason this device could not play these files I cauld add WLC WM Real Player.
    That is why WD is not the best option.

    Today I am going to try to contact MyGica USA regarding ATV 1200 model.
    They do not show it on their Web site.

    I have been having dificultie reaching them.

    Most appreciated

    I see that Mix Shop is somewhere overseas.

    I woule like to purchase from USA in case I had trouble with it.

    Still trying to contact MYgica USA.
    Wondering if ther ATV 1200 is the same as Mix Shop?
    There is alos Geniatech and ATV-nx2 available in USA.

    Let me know what you think?

    Thank you

    No problem scorpNZ,

    I am sure the WE Live device is fine for most needs but I seem to need something different.

    Thank you

    Hi everyone. Recently I have been only using VLC, I know it looks pretty outdated but it works without any problems and open умкн single format you can think of. So this one is the best at least for me.

    Welll,

    A quick thank you to Tongs007.

    This device is so much better than Roku.
    It just so happens to play all my files on my HD.
    If not, I could use VLC.
    But have not figured out how to use VLC with it yet.

    This little device is amazing.
    So much content to choose from.

    Yes,

    the remote is so quirky but it does work.


    For some rather odd reason.

    I was not interested in Google TV.
    Now it is Android TV.

    this is probably the best purchase I have made in quite some time.

    Most appreciated,

    mrbear27
