i have a freeagent theater+ HD media player.
its not a bad little device, it will stream from my storage device via
UPnP or SMB.
you can plug in a USB drive or a particular freeagent external drive into
the device itself
the menu is a bit basic, and a little clunky.
plus i have never been able to get it to play a playlist from youtube.
other than that, its small, completely silent & low power.
audio out is via HDMI or optical.
video out is via HDMI, Component or composite.
no built in wifi, has an ethernet power.
