    Not the usual computer stuff that gets asked about in here but...

    Does anyone know of any media streamers/players that have support for a usb dvd drive and and play proper dvds?

    I have a smallish shelf, so a normal dvd player is out of the question, most media players seem able to fit, but can not seem to find any that can play dvds.

    Can anyone point me in the direction of something suitable?

    I think the Popcorn Hour C-200 can... but it's not small.

    As above, the PCH NMTs work with USB DVD drives, the WDTV does as well but only with custom firmware.

    PCH = too big im afraid...

    from what i have read the WDTV works with a dvd drive yes, but will not play proper DVDs, it will only read avi and divx files etc...

    have just been looking at the itab 36hd and its newer brother the itab 38hd, but at 239 for the later...

    would be nice dropping an SSD into that
