So.. something like this runs Android onto the TV ?

I'm asking because I assume then you can then find an android app to play .MKV files onto the TV.. I was a bit disappointed to find that my ChromeOS laptop doesnt have an app that runs .MKV (well.. there is one but it's not very good)
xbmc / kodi runs everything I throw at it, iirc vlc also runs them, but I stick to xbmc as I'm lazy and it does everything (so far) I've needed it to do.

My nas is mounted permanently as a drive, don't know how well that would work trying to save to it, but it plays from it all ok.

Re: Quiet and compact Media PC - ideas?

If somebody is looking for a NAS server, I'm just selling mine on the market place:

[FS] - Synology NAS + 4X 3TB HD [Zurich or Thalwil]

The NAS has support to Plex Server and DLNA, so if your TV is modern, you can run directly without an external media center.

Still, I have a dedicated HTPC in my living room. It's a Zotac ZBOX :

Quite small box, I can turn on and off using my phone, and I run Kodi (XBMC) on it.

All my videos, files, music, etc are on my NAS. I don't even have HDD anymore. All my computers (pc desktop, living room media center) have only a SSD.
