Does anyone know of good external hard drives with straight to tv play and where to find them in Toronto, Canada? I had been looking for a way to ease the amount of disk space my many video files were taking up when I found the INOi HD370. After a little more research, I did find other models, but from brand names that I had never heard of.
I do know of media extenders, like the D-Link DSM 3-20 (I was even able to find it at Staples), but these incorporate DVD players and I really don't need this added feature, or other ones like being able to stream video, etc from the computer. I also have heard about internal hard drive enclosures like the Mvix Wireless HD Media Center that enable the straight-to-tv play.
Okay, problem is: I'm pretty much technologically challenged. I think I would basically need a hard drive with the ability to play media files on a television, without any excess features like streaming or dvd play. Internal hard drive enclosures sound like a good idea, but the prospect of having to install a hard drive by myself is seriously daunting.
What would be a good model for a layperson like myself and where could I find it in Toronto?
