Since Ramadan is getting closer and i know there will be tons of kuwaiti series and talk shows, i think I’ll need something like a media center for me which is capable of:

  • Recording directly from a reciever or DVD player.
  • Can watch YouTube with it <- (MUST coz my wife is a BIG fan of YouTube πŸ™‚ ).
  • Built in hard drive.
  • Can work with Mac.
  • WiFi – G or N doesn’t matter.

A little search in Amazon plus Google ended up with:

Can anyone help me with it? can anyone find one with all the features above?


INM just got his Archos TV+ I just bought it from INM ((sharaita 3ala kharaba πŸ˜› )) and it seems its nearly perfect device, it got HD, YouTube, and many more. im thinking of getting one. BTW i will make a review of it.

    It also serves as a NAS and a BitTorrent peer-to-peer downloader to eliminate the need to switch on a PC or other device for this purpose.

    INM bought the archos tv, right? so does it work with Macs? coz you just said “Archos TV+ (No YouTube)” does that mean it worked with his Mac?

  8. Mishary says:

    Yousef it works but in an indirect way πŸ™‚ still trying to make it smoother coz u know INM better than me πŸ˜›

  9. Yousef says:
