Recently switched to recording over the air TV and needed a media streamer. I tried Asus, BriteView WD, Boxee Box, and the old Popcorn Hour (a110) box. Here is a summary of what I found:

BriteView

o This is the streamer I kept
o Plays everything (except for DVD VOB directories)
o Doesn't show subtitles automatically (needs to be turned on per show)
o Plays audio through HDMI and optical simultaneously
o Audio control available on the remote
o Best remote of the bunch
o Can't play VOB directories, although it can play ISO files

Boxee Box

o nice looking device and remote
o can download DVD box art if the files have exact names in the right format
o RF Remote doesn't require line of sight and is very responsive
o Slick, smooth interface (but menu system is convoluted) and too few dedicated buttons
o Very responsive
o Has problems decoding Dolby Digital Audio from a variety of file formats
o skipping problems for HD TV recordings (.

I have previously tried WD TV (1st generation) and CinemaTube and compared them since these were the media players having similar features at similar prices. Despite WD TV was the most popular media player, I had shown that CinemaTube was the winner.

Read my review for CinemaTube here:
http://www.amazon.com/Brite-View-BV-5005HD-CinemaTube-Multimedia-Downloader/dp/B002CNOYRS/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1280036605&sr=8-1

Now that both WD TV Live Plus and CinemaGo are out to fight, I can see CinemaGo is still going to be the winner for similar reasons. Although this time I did not try WD TV Live Plus (I didn't feel to), but after comparing their available features, from my previous experience with WD TV and CinemaTube and current experience with CinemaGo, I must say it will be hard to get a better product in the market at this price point.

Don't care about wireless? Save money then! You can get CinemaTube Mini now for less, which is nothing but CinemaGo sans wireless. You can still buy a wireless USB adapter in future to make it wireless (Brite-View recommended adapter desirable).

Read my review for CinemaGo here:
http://www.amazon.com/brite-View-BV-5005HD-Mini-Networking-Multimedia/product-reviews/B003TUB2VE/ref=cm_cr_pr_recent?ie=UTF8&showViewpoints=0&sortBy=bySubmissionDateDescending

CinemaTube Mini can do "everything" that CinemaGo can do!!!

NOTE: Muzee now offers some TV channels for free! I liked some of the channels and added to my favorites. Quality is standard internet quality. Parenteral control can be done by using a password.

Some bugs need to be fixed through firmware updates:

As someone else also reported,
# ISO's DVD menu is still kinda buggy.

If you are smart, stay away form this company. As some other reviewers has said, this company would rather release new hardware then update their current product lineup. I've had their previous product and was one of the early adopters. When this company started, support was great. I took a chance on this new company and bought their product. It was by far from perfect, but I believed in their promise of firmware updates. Instead, a few months later, they came out with an official press release saying that the hardware was no long being supported. This was just 7 months after I bought the unit.

So at this point you may be wondering how many updates they've actually made? Two. And none of them fixed the issues with the units such as network connectivity, bit torrent download, youtube....what did they update? The UI graphics... I guess they thought that was much more important.

So, buy this unit if you are okay with this company telling you that they have a new product with the features you were promised for your unit after you've spent $120. Hey at least they offered $20.00 coupon as an apology. Apparently that makes people feel better.

this product should be labled "buy AS-IS"
I reported the problem I had with this product to brite view via email
since the product was purchased only 6 months ago, and was still under warranty,
I was provided RMA# and an address where to ship the player without any accessories.

after Brite View received the product (I have proof of UPS tracking report), I never heard from them again. They even stopped replying to my requests.

If anyone is looking to buy this product be ware!!!!
buy the product only if you feel that you'll never need their help or if you don't mind throwing $100+ away.

Amazon is great!

Brite View is Horrible!!!!!!!!New Arrival! brite-View "CinemaTube Mini (BV-5005HD Mini CT)" 3-in-1 1080p Full HD Networking Multimedia Player/Streamer/Torrent Downloader, Black (HDMI cable INCLUDED)
