It's somewhat baffling to think about what the HD media streamer sector

has become. Even five years ago, hardly anyone had an interest in these

one-trick set top boxes. Now, it seems that every consumer electronics

company on the market has a unit out. Today, MvixUSA as launched the

latest in its lineup, the Ultio.

Hailed as the "ultimate 1080p UPnP Home Theater Media Player," this

hard drive-based unit is able to store multimedia content locally, not

to mention stream content in via Ethernet or Wi-Fi. The device is

powerful enough to handle Blu-ray quality video, and the HDMI port

ensures that the 1080p material is passed along to your HDTV in the

highest quality. Ultio supports most 1080p HD video codecs, and formats

such as H.264,

MKV, Dixv HD, MOV, VC-1, FLV, etc. It is also capable of playing unique

formats such as AVC-HD (normally used in camcorder footage) or FLAC

(the popular, uncompressed audio, craved by audiophiles).

Mvix Ultio is being launched in 2 flavors: the regular version (without

an HDD) is priced at $169, whereas the premium version (bundled with 1TB hard drive) will be available at $259.


I purchased an Mvix Ultio 1080p last 2 weeks, and I recieved my package early last week. I am very satisfied with the product functionality. I really love watching streaming videos and my crave is met with this Mvix Ultio 1080p. I think I already found what I need on the product.

With this Ultio, I don't have the problem converting videos from different format just to play it because it can play different file formats. Great right? So, no wonder my friends envy me (they planning to buy too) for having the kind of product.


Mine just arrived yesterday and so far I'm satisfied with the features. Do you have a DTS capable receiver? If yes, then try to play DTS formats with it and you will be amazed that it works too even it's not included in the lists. You need to set up the audio out of the MVIX Ultio to RAW settings first then you can enjoy streaming.    I'm dying to watch my ISO media files to my PC but it does not work but now with Ultio I can stream any codec I have. AWESOME box![Y]
