Does anyone have any experience using standalone media players for video installation?
It would need to be able to loop high quality PAL video without showing any interface.
silent (ie fanless) system
needs to loop unattended for hours at a stretch
120/240v power source
HDMI/DVI or Component video out
enough space to store 30 minutes of 720x576 25fps (PAL) video
or better: HD (PAL hdtv is 1920x1080)
--here are the contenders--
Popcorn Hour networked media tank
AppleTV (does it do PAL?)
Iomega Screen Play
MediaGate entertainment server
Xbox hacks, ie: Xbox media center
custom fanless system running Linux-based media system (eg: geexbox)
