Beginner's guide to SSL certificates

Acer will release its HD-capable DLNA media streaming box later this month.

Dubbed the Aspire RevoView, the gadget can grab content from DLNA servers on your home network - you'll need a wired connection to the LAN - and present it on your TV - for which it has HDMI, component and composite video ports.

The RevoView also packs a pair of USB ports and a memory card reader, so you can feed it content from local storage too. And it has space for its own 3.5in, hot-swappable hard drive.

The gadget supports stacks of formats: AVI, MKV, TS, TP, TRP, M2TS, MPG, MP4, MOV, M4V, VOB, ISO, IFO, DAT, WMV, ASF, RM, RMVB plus the MPEG 1, 2, 4 SP/ASP/AVC (H.264), XviD, WMV9 (VC-1) and RealVideo 8, 9 and 10 codecs.

It does Cook, RA Lossless Flac and Ogg, and all the usual audio codecs.

The Aspire RevoView will be available from 8 November priced at £120. ®
