Re: Ditching Shaw cable need media player ideas I have a WD TV Live unit. I like it for the most part.
Works well though some small issues like remembering where I left off watching program gets lost if the power shuts off.
Since power is so shakey where I am I put it on a battery backup.
It can also be a little stupid when finding network shares if the PC isn't on. Took 15 minutes last time to finally connect to my PC when both were on.
Also does not come with a browser built in if that is a concern. I thought I didn't need it but there was one time when I wanted it.
It does play anything I can throw at it wirelessly though I did end up running a Cat5 to the unit to makes sure.
