I'm looking to replace my KiSS DP-558 hard disk recorder/dvd-player* with something a bit more modern but I'm finding it hard to search the internet for the kind of device I want. Does anyone have any recommendations? I'm looking for something with at least the following features:
[*]Network/internet capability. Not-wireless is fine, as I've already got a cable there anyway.
[*]Some easy way to transfer files to and from my pc. Streaming might be an acceptable alternative, if it's very good.
[*]Plays various standard media file formats, including XviD
I don't need the ability to record to dvd's, and while blu-ray would be nice if it doesn't bump the price too much I can do without. I'm looking for something fairly classical, but if you think a media pc or even some this-gen console is the best pick, I might try that. A remote is a must though and it'd better "just work".
*I've had a love-hate relationship with the thing, and while it has some distinct upsides I don't recommend it to anyone.
