Hi folks,

I am very confused regarding the world of media centres / htpc's / media streamers.... so confused in fact that I don't even know the right name to call them.

Anyway at the moment I have loads of videos on my HTC one that I want to be able to watch easily on my TV. Obviously my TV has HDMI and perhaps not so obviously a USB which it can play videos through but it isn't a smart tv.

Since my HTC One only has 32GB then I would like to be able to transfer videos onto the HDD (via my wi-fi network so either plugged into router or into another device) and then play from that or if not then to play directly from my phone onto my TV.

I have been looking at the Now TV box with Plex on and also the Raspberry Pi with XBMC on but I am not sure if either of these can do what I want them to do. Does anyone on here have a home cinema setup along those lines that can advise.

Thanks in advance for any advice.
