Now available in the UK is the Eminent EM7080 hdMedia RT Media Player, which as well as being something of a mouthful is also a standalone network media device.

It can accept your own choice of 3.5in SATA HDD – 'up to 1.5TB or larger' the company says! – has twin USB ports for memory sticks or hard-drives, and can either be connected to a computer via USB or on a network.

It supports streaming of both music and video at up to 1080P, has HDMI 1.3, component video, stereo analogue and optical/electrical digital outputs, and is on sale now at Amazon.
