    DVD player and USB port?

    Quick question, would it be possible to attached a dvd player or will Vudu have that capablity so we can watch DVD's we already have without having to having yet another component in our cabinet?

    Thanks

    Re: DVD player and USB port?

    The VUDU is not a media extender as you stated about watching a DVD though the VUDU. Also you cannot attach a DVD player to the unit even though it has a USB port. At this time the planned use of the USB port is to attach external storage. Its my understanding that this support wont be there in the initial product launch but will come in the form of an update.

    Lots of folks want to reduce the amount of equipment connecting to the home theater or TV. The VUDU may one day replace the need for a DVD altogether since there are some movies that are licensed for purchase. I am hoping one day the the owners of the content would really understand this new delivery model.

      Ok thanks. I was curious on that aspect of the unit. I do intend to buy this when it hits the shelves, especially considering the fact that HD content will be added. I had intended on getting a Blu-Ray player, but this looks like it will do the job instead.

        Well I am sure that if they look around to their music cousins they should see this.
        Can anyone remember the last time they bought a physical copy of a CD?

          About a month ago. Most of the geeks I know want the physical media, because downloads are usually too restricted, and many require an ongoing subscription or you lose your songs. As we've said elsewhere, though, once you buy and download a movie to your VUDU, it's watchable forever, although it is currently restricted to the box. However, I would love to be able to rip my current DVDs to the VUDU. They'd have my attention for a much greater portion of my time, so I'd probably purchase MORE content in the end, even if I spent a lot of time watching content that didn't create any revenue for VUDU.

            I would think that the ultimate success of this product would be it's scalability to change with the market, add-on's, improvements to interface, etc....time will tell...

              I would agree with you. I believe that since Vudu has a product with a very good, robust design that there's a lot that can be done. Again, I don't speak for them nor do I know what they have planned. But given that I have other devices that are entertainment devices attached to my home network that do many other things, I can certainly imagine the Vudu having the hardware capabilities at the least to do those. Vudu certainly could have tried to make an "everything including the kitchen sink" box but it probably would have done a little of everything but nothing very well. What I can tell you is that the decision was made by Vudu to make the box do one thing initially and to do that one thing better, way better than any other product out there. That it does and it does very well. Trust me - it will change your view of movies and OnDemand in general. Now that they have established an excellence in their initial target area, who knows what they might do next. That's for the management team to decide and the best way to help influence that is for one to buy the box and two to let the folks at Vudu know what you would like to see.

                Buy it now online at the Vudu store and be one of the first people to have it. I'm not sure if the stores that will carry this have been publicly announced yet, but the best place right now is to order it online. You'll be one of the first to get it. I don't think the pricing in stores is going to be any better than what you see here.

                  You never know, there are many 4.99-7.99 dvds at best buy that are major movies. 2-3 years ago I never would have thought you could get a major release movie for under 9.99 from a major retailer.

                    I'm not talking about the movie content. I was talking about the actual Vudu box itself!

                      I was looking through the BestBuy ad this weekend and found about 6 movies in the ad for 7.99 and on the VUDU the same movies were 9.99. If I was going to purchase I would go with the DVD since they have additional content.

                        Plus portability and transferability, big issues in my book. But the VUDU is definitely more convenient for rentals, and more competitive in that arena, IMO.

                          Additionally, there is content on the Vudu you probably won't find at BestBuy or elsewhere - off the beaten path sorta stuff in addition to all the mainstream stuff...

                            And no trips to 'Worst Buy' or the video store! But, if you happen to be at the store already and see that 'must have' DVD - do it! Mostly for the reasons above.

                              So...would it be possible to take your USB hard drive (Instead of the whole unit) to someone's house who has a VUDU unit and plug your hard drive into theirs and watch the movies on your USB drive? That would be nice to be able to do so you don't have to lug the whole unit/drive with you.
