WD TV-2 spruces up Western Digital’s already attractive media player offering


What a way to start the week than with some extender device news. It’s always a good sign for the space when one of the big boys like WD not only designs these types of products, but continues evolving and improving them. I’m especially surprised (pleasantly) by the inclusion of a component video plug adapter with this one, which feels like the oft-forgotten connection.

The newly leaked WD TV-2 revisits the formula, but adds in network playback over the new Ethernet jack, DTS audio decoding, and a component video plug for folks caught in the technological no man’s land between composite and HDMI. Outside of that there’s a just plain silly amount of codec support, which is hard not to love.
