Why don't you have a look HDVP-2? http://mp4nation.net/catalog/index.php? ... cts_id=386
If you plan to hook it up to a TV anywhere you go. See my review here if you need more info. viewtopic.php?f=68&t=17695
I actually was reading over your review of the HDVP-2 and most likely WILL get that unit in addition to the Ainol. I just wanted to have a portable unit that I could have a sort of.. dual purpose if you will. Right now I don't have the $$ to buy both but if I did I certainly would. I'm still reading over your review of the HDVP-2 but so far it looks perfect for my application.
Currently, for streaming videos over my network I use my PS3. I'm streaming videos from my external hard drive that's connected to my PC. I use this free software called PS3 Media Server (you're probably familiar with it). I don't have any issues with it so far but I'll be getting another smaller TV for the bedroom and I don't want to fork over $300 just to stream my videos over to it. That's where I'd like the HDVP to come in.
For now I'd like to use the Ainol just between two locations. I probably won't use the streaming all that often. I just wanted a PMP for my every day out of the house situations.
I had just posted in your thread about the HDVP-2 last night but thanks for writing that extremely detailed review. I'll probably have a boat load more questions with regards to that hardware as soon as I pick it up. I know originally I had wanted something like the western digital media servers but those are too expensive for what they do (or don't do). I'm definitely looking into the HDVP-2 so I'll be referencing your thread as soon as I get that.
Hello. It should work fine. I'll verify tonight with my 1TB Western Digital Elements External hard drive at home. I'll hook it up to the Ainol and see comes of it. (this is a V8000HDW btw. but it uses the same SC9800 as the V9000HDG so it should be comparable).
Thanks! I'll be looking forward to your response.
