Storage Solutions Media Storage drive for Direct HDMI playback on TV


Well-Known Member
any good Media Player enabled drives that can be plugged directly into my HDTV to play photo, songs and movies of x264/x265 codec ?

I'd prefer to install my own HDD and
I'm concerned about firmware updates, so should be an actively maintained product.

Open to alternative DIY solutions using RasPi or other cost effective solutions... please pour in your thoughts.

Any Good Android TV boxes to which I can hookup an External HDD ? or even a smaller MicroSD will also suffice if the space doesn't permit. Alot of offerings but would need a recommendation for a tested one.. :)
