The Google - Nexus Player Streaming Media Console by ASUS [bestbuy.com] is $49.99 at Bestbuy with free shipping. A new player may launch in a few days with ethernet, but for those who can live with WiFi only, this device works well. I have it streaming a feed from an HDHomerun Prime through the HDHomerun View App without hiccup.

According to AMilz's post below, Amazon [amazon.com] has matched the price. Thanks AMilz.

Why buy this when you can get an amazon fire stick that can do everything IT can + amazon prime videos?

For some people who want to run emulation. the Fire Stick wouldn't be able to handle graphics and apps. A better comparison would be the fire TV, but that one is more expensive than this obviously.

For me, it is the HDHomerun feature. Cox is starting to go full digital in my area, so I must either rent their boxes for all my TV's, or stream my HDHomerun Prime. I have another box that does Amazon Prime. Also, I have had trouble finding good movies on Amazon Prime, so I rarely use it. I can always stream a tab using the Nexus, I suppose.

I didn't think Amazon Fire devices had Android? I need to upgrade my Logitech Revue. I loved that thing but since Google dropped support and all these apps that I used to watch movies with are no longer working with the Honeycomb Android that the Revue is stuck with, looks like I'm gonna have to get something else. Frown Really wish they would push through a firmware update on the Revue though, because I love the HDMI pass-through it's got and I haven't found an Android TV box that has HDMI pass-through. So i'm trying to decide what I want to get and which would be better for the price. So far I've been looking at this Nexus Player, (I missed the deal just a few days ago on Groupon when it was like $47.XX.), Amazon Fire, or Nvidia Shield. Which the Nvidia costs more than I'm wanting to spend.

ETA: I also would like the device to have a browser like the Logitech Revue. It seems the Nexus Player doesn't have one.

I just tried to run HDHomerun view on a Fire TV stick. It loads, but the app is buried in settings (it does not load main screen). When I attempt to run it, the video stutters. The Nexus streamer does not have that problem, probably because of the processor. Anyway, I know there are only a few who care about the HDHomerun streaming aspects of this device, but for those that do, the Nexus works well.
