just buy a media player. fit what ever size hd you want and it plugs straight into your tv. cost about £30 off the bay. saves loads of money in dvd's in the long run...

here's one.

need to get your own 3.5" hd though.

basically its a hard drive that you can plug into your tv and it allows you to play movies, music, or show pictures. it sorts out all the de-coding and data stuff for you, so all you do is download stuff from the tinterweb onto your pc then move it over to the media player and then pug it into your tv.

the bit you buy is just a case with some software that does all the decoding. you then just fit any 3.5" hd into it, allowing you to choose what size you need. my one has 80 gb on it and holds loads of 'backup' copies of dvd's i have 'mislaid' :wink:

you can pick up 80gb hard drives for about 20 squids. like this one...

or is it solder in job?

usually a film of about 100-120 minutes is about 800mb so around 10 full length films.

the drive itself is just plugged in.
