BLOBbox: PVR and set-top-box in one


BLOBbox is a device combined DVB-T receiver, PVR, networked media player and set-top-box for online video services in one. It’s equiped with MIPS 300 MHz CPU, 114 MB RAM, 160GB HDD, Dual DVB-T tune, HDMI, SCART Composite video, Analog audio, SPDIF outputs, 2xUSB 2.0, Ethernet 10/100. The box supports Wi-Fi b/g/n USB adaptors. So, it can be connected to home network without annoyed wires. The box is controlled using remote control and nice looking GUI.

The BLOBbox understands MP4-MOV, AVI, ASF-WMV, MP3, MPEG-TS, MPEG-PS, MKV (coming soon) file formats using following A/V codes: MPEG-2, H.264, WM9, DIVX, XVID, MP2, MP3, AAC, AAC-HE, WMA. It offers access to the online services: Youtube, Miro, Picasa, Vcast, Weather Underground. Additionally it has built-in torrent client to download/upload files in the P2P networks. The base functionality of the BLOBbox can be extended by 3rd part applications thanks to published API. That fact in my opinion will help the device to get a good part of the market.

The price of BLOBbox is €307.50. It can be shipped to the big number of countries including Russia, USA and EU members.
