The PD-100N housing provides two USB ports, HDMI, optical out, and the old-school RCA video and stereo audio connections. The design is functional save for the spacing between the two USB ports on the front when coupled with the PDW-10N wireless adapter. This dongle is so large that it can overshadow the other port. For typical USB cables it’s not that big of a problem, but forget about plugging in a flash drive when the wireless adapter is attached.
Booting the player for the first time prompted me to choose the resolution for my television (amongst 480, 720, and 1080i and 1080p options) and I was at the main menu screen with a minimum of fuss. Options are limited, however, and though the Prodigi website sports the Muzee logo, I could not find any option for it whatsoever. There’s also a BitTorrent setting under the Setup menu that has no other function than either being turned on or off, which is quite odd. With no other connectivity options available, it’s just you and your USB hard drive and/or networked computer to stem the tide of boredom.
