Tip & How-To about Audio Players & Recorders
I have not yet found any stand-alone DVD player that can play nearly as many different formats of Movies, MP?'s, standard discs, USB, Flash Cards , External Hard Drives etc. as an old reliable P4 or equivalent PC can. Unless you want to pay a Kings Ransom, and even then you only get some of this.
I have a old cheap 2.4 GHZ with 1GB (4x256MB) RAM and a 40GB HD that I got from an auction for $50.00. Luckily it came with OS installed, a mouse and Keyboard. With a bit of Top Class Freeware, a PC remote controller, and a couple of cheap hardware cards, I'm like a pig in the proverbial, and loving it.
The best thing I like about it is, it's upgradeable and all you need to do is plug it into your TV, and also if you so desire, a good stereo or 5.1 sound system.
So for much less than the cost of an average MP? player, Multi DVD Recorder and Player combo, and their restrictions, you can have a host of features only limited by your imagination and plug ins.
You will have the Best Media centre in your neighborhood for a song.
If it breaks, it is cheap to replace, and the add-ons are too.
Great for the party room, or just sipping tequila's by the pool.
