Does a job - but
on 2 February 2011
This Xenta media player is in many ways surprisingly good. It plays all my avi files through the Tv with no problems in quality or reliability and for the price that is good, just stick your movies on a usb stick.
In theory you can attach any usb device and even a hard disk but heres the problem. The remote is appalling, you cannot pause movies and can only skip forwards or back by 2/4/8/etc times, it is very difficult to be sure which buttons you are pressing and all to easy to stop the movie, (there is no resume)
In addition to this I find most subs wont play in spite of there being a sub button, the subs sometimes decide on their own to work but rarely.
The file system management is awkward and illogical and the system finds all types on your input device, so if you had 10 movies on a usb stick in different folders it would find them all and display them under a movies tab, you then scroll through having no view of the folder info. Imagine trying to scroll through hundreds of movies or more likely songs to find one item, you soon get fed up.
Does a job just but useless if you are serious.
