          Works on both older tvs with composite in and newer tvs with HDMI in. Does not seem to play .wmv files. Interface is responsive. External Seagate GoFlex hardrive seems to work.

              Comments about WD TV Play Media Player:

              We bought this player for only one thing. We want to show photos and video on a projector for school programs. Of course we could use a computer or tablet but that would mean carrying more equipment and increased cost. On top of that the handy remote control offers increased ability to move around the room. All of the Internet features are not used and we don't know if they even work.

                Works as expected, unfortunately not an option if you are Amazon Prime Videos user. I mainly use this device for Slingplayer, in my second home. It works well, HD picture is very good. I have 2 of them for 2 different TVs.
