Review: Argosy HV359T Multimedia HDD Player

Filed under
Hardware

Recently I've been in the market for a self contained video player with a hard drive in it. Why you might ask? Well, because my mom has a lot of recorded shows she wants to watch that are saved for later viewing. And since I like to keep my setup to a minimum, I'm always looking for ways in which to make something as self contained as possible.

Hence the use of a multimedia player with a self contained hard drive. That's when I was referred to the Argosys HV269T media player. Now right away you're likely asking, "So what does this have to do with Linux?" Well, a lot actually, otherwise I wouldn't be reviewing it here if it wasn't Linux powered.

Is it Linux powered? You bet your bottom dollar it is. That's the part that shocked me. When I first picked it up, I figured that I had ended up with something that had a self contained IOS that was likely limited and proprietary. Boy was I surprised to find out that it wasn't. And I stumbled onto that fact while loading it with test movies.
