PatriotMemory Box Office Player

2. Opening the package

The PatriotMemory Box office can be purchased online for $99 after Amazon's rebate. The price is quite competitive to other products, such as the WD Live TV!.

For our tests, Patriot Memory supplied us with a WLAN adapter that is actually a USB2.0 Wifi adapter based on the Realtek chipset with drivers for PC systems. Since it is not bundled with the main device, you need pay some additional $15 to get it. However, it would be recommended to buy it in order to avoid any possible incompatibility issues with other USB wifi adapters you may already have or plan to buy.

A sticker informs us that an HDMI 1.3 cable is included and that the device supports subtitles - both very useful:

Let's open the box. As you can see below you will find the Box Office Media Player, a remote control with batteries included, a composite AV cable, an HDMI v1.3 cable, an AC adapter, a quick install guide and a manual/transcode media center software CD. Both the software and manual can be also downloaded from the PatriotMemory's website in case your CD is broken. The package is complete for a $99 product.

The device looks good and the metallic outer shell makes it look quite solid.

A USB port (input) and several LEDs are placed on the front panel, as you can see in the pictures below:

USB2.0 ports, ethernet, optical and composite outputs and of course the HDMI port are found at the rear side of the device. All these ports should be enough to allow you to connect the player with your flat panel TV and enjoy your videos:
