    I am using a WDTV Live (Gen 3) for the past few months. Need to use it for my kid who needs to watch videos to eat (I know its wrong but lets leave it at that). I am downloading videos off youtube and other sources and it plays off my hard drive or off the network. The problem with the WDTV Live (Gen 3) is that it stops playing videos (h264/AAC) after a couple of repeats and needs to be restarted. This is tolerable while I am present but is too much of an hassle for my wife and I need to get rid of this issue ASAP. I tried a lot of different firmwares for the device but in vain. It seems its a documented issue with the device (which I obviously did not bother about before purchasing). I am now looking to get an Apple TV 3 and want to know if someone in Delhi can confirm the best price for the device (or maybe even gift me one) :p

    For those who are going to suggest "alternatives", stay away. The mind has been made. ATV 3 works well. Will support AirPlay. Comes with a no-nonsense interface. Is a fool-proof solution for my problem.

    Help will be appreciated.

    Take your time but how much of it do you want? If you're gifting me one, I can go into extra time. :p

    Replied: Luciffer generally never checks SMSes in India. All he gets is a bunch of Spam in there. :(
    Have a Firangi number where my Firangi friends SMS me at :)

    Stop that.. you're a Gaadi-wallah -- Business owner (Raid101) -- Job-full person now.
    Me still the Bekar Garib Aaam Admi :(

    Done.. will call him tomorrow.
    Just 2 problems:
    1. Currently I'm sick (Flu) so will go pick up as soon as I can. (Hopefully the weekend or soon after)
    2. Since I don't know this product. What am I to look for.. and how much am I to offer? (What's the actual price of this thing?)

    Might be a better idea for you to negotiate the price.. (I don't even know what the thing actually costs)
    And I'll go check it out (let me know what I'm looking for)
    And buy it and ship it to you. :)

    I know what it is..
    But I neither know anything else about it...
    and I can't seem to find an Indian price for it online. (None of my regular stores seem to carry it.. so guessing apple exclusive)
    --- Double Post Merged, Jul 27, 2012 ---
    Something like this... I'm guessing I don't need to check for much...
    Just that the product actually exists.. and works :)
    But how am I to bargain for a product whose real price I don't know :(

    How about a cheap VFM Nationite HD player? Plays anything you throw at it, and even if your kid drops it, it wont hurt, coz its really cheap ~ 2k!
