At first it is only your media player, and then you connect it to your TV and it magically transforms into a device that allows analog video input from your DVD or cable box.But no, there is a whole lot more from the Neuros OSD Linux Media Recorder.
It can encode video in various formats for from your portable devices like PSP or mobile phones.
Also, it could work as your external hard drive where files can be stored and played either by using media memory cards orÂ by using a USB external hard drive plugged into it.
However, the really special part about this one is the wealth of ports and the completely open source firmware. You get analog video/audio input and output, ethernet, USB, infrared, serial, two card slots to accommodate CF and SD/MS/MMC cards, plus a full-function universal remote.
