The Western Digital 1080p TV LIVE Streaming Media Player With 500GB Hard Drive is a B&H kit consisting of a WD TV LIVE Streaming Media Player and a 500 GB My Passport Essential Portable Hard Drive (Black).

The TV LIVE Streaming Media Player lets you experience your treasured media files or games on a higher, more immersive level. Play music or games, watch video or movies, or view pictures on a 1080p HDTV or a regular TV, instead of just on your PC, and use your home surround sound speaker system! To facilitate connectivity to these external devices, the media player comes equipped with an HDMI port, a set of RCA composite ports, and a digital optical audio S/PDIF port.

Since the player supports 802.11n Wi-Fi and features a built-in Ethernet port, you can connect it to your home network wirelessly or via an Ethernet cable. Afterwards, the media player will search and collect media files that it can play from your computer or connected network hard drives. Additionally, because the media player has 2 USB ports, it can play files from a connected external USB hard drive. If all of this sounds simple...well, it should! Navigating with your TV and the media player is even easier with the included remote.

The My Passport Essential Portable Hard Drive from Western Digital is your answer to sleek, 'future-proof' portability. With this bus-powered drive, you can have up to 5Gb/s USB 3.0 speeds with complete backward compatibility with USB 2.0, allowing you to take full advantage of your drive immediately while still ensuring future usability.

Comments about Western Digital 1080p TV LIVE Streaming Media Player With 500GB Hard Drive:

Right out of the box, it refused to connect to my local network. After digging around on forums, found that I had to disable media streaming in Windows 7?! Why am I having to dig through forums on day 1???!!!! Finally sees my server, for a second. Then I changed menus from Videos to Pictures, and it lost the source! Have to reboot to get it to see the network again. You can't give it the IP of your shares either, it has to scan for them. Which takes FOREVER! Worst media player ever. Also the remote isn't RF. The menus are slow and clunky. If WD had started their business with this, they would've died out long ago.
