WD TV

WD TV

A HD ­multimedia player in a tiny package — that’s what the WD TV promises.

Compact design

The WDTV is essentially a tiny ­dedicated multimedia player that supports a bewildering array of HD video content in addition to the usual list of music and picture file formats.

Just to give you a taste — for video, the WD TV supports MPEG1, MPEG2, MPEG4, DivX, Xvid, H.264, WMV and, most importantly, the new MKV (Matroska) file format.

Unlike most multimedia players, however, the WD TV doesn’t itself come integrated with a hard disk — instead the device comes with two USB ports, into which you can plug in any external hard disk drive or flash drive.

Apart from the standard ­composite RCA AV outputs, the WD TV offers HDMI output, capable of displaying 1080p video.

That rounds off quite an extensive feature set, and on paper at least, the WD TV sounds like the perfect little multimedia player for anyone looking to view HD content on a HDTV.

In use

Setting up the WD TV couldn’t be simpler, especially if you have an HDMI cable — hook up the power, connect the HDMI cable and then turn on the device.

The menu system is reminiscent of the PlayStation3 interface, as you get a bunch of vertical and ­horizontal scrolling icons which are quite self explanatory.

If you have a USB storage device, just copy the files into it and then connect it to the WD TV which will then scan the files on it and update itself accordingly.

The WD TV supports thumbnails and you should be able to see a list of thumbnails when you go into the video or audio category.

The supplied remote control is a pretty standard affair, with all the usual playback and navigation buttons.

The only issue I had right off the bat is that the infrared coverage is rather limited on the remote.

You really have to point the remote quite directly at the WD TV for it to work and even then the time between pressing the button and the WD TV responding is relatively long.

As far as video playback is concerned, the WD TV worked flawlessly for MPEG, DivX, Xvid and QuickTime files, and we had no issues with those.

Supported file formats: MP3, WMA, OGG, WAV/PCM/LPCM, AAC, FLAC, Dolby Digital, AIF/AIFF, MKA, JPEG, GIF, TIF/TIFF, BMP, PNG, MPEG1/2/4, WMV9, AVI (MPEG4, Xvid, AVC), H.264, MKV, MOV
Interface: HDMI, Composite AV, USB 2.0 Dimensions: 12.5 x 10 x 4.0cm (W X H X D)
