AOpen XC mini MP45-BDR (Limited Edition)

I found a really small remote sized keyboard that works great!


Funny that when I pick this remote up the dogs go nuts… it has a built in lazer pointer and they love to chase the dot!





OS is Windows7 32bit 

SlySoft AnyDVD HD ... works great ... takes care of HDMI/DVI play issues such as PowerDVD HD saying your hardware is at issue when it shouldn't!



ArcSoft TotalMedia Theatre 3 Platinum - Integrates Windows MC very nicely and might be the last windows one that will play local drive files to include BD! This version works great and I have yet a need to upgrade. This software works very near the quality playstation3 delivered for DVD movies (SimHD=up-scaling).
