    Recommend a Network Media Playback device please

    We have two TV's which we show slideshows, but at the moment its only DVD. What we would like is a small box which could connect to our network and access media recorded via our NAS box.
    Looking for a good cheap recommendation please?

    Thank you.

    we used to use a nettopbox by onelan, but they are expensive for what we ended up needing, so now we literally have a really small acer revo (Acer Revo RL70 Nettop PC - Nettops | Ebuyer.com) thats sub £200, set it up to auto logon etc etc and simply point IE to a page on one of your servers that you can update change etc.

    I've just bought a WD TV Live for home use (around £70-£80) and full HD

    Its a cracking little box and easy to set up, of course if you've got an old PC and a copy of W7 - you could always use the media player
