CodexNovus unveils HDcodex 1080p media "server"

We're not sure why anyone would want to have 1TB of storage in a set-top box and not, say, attached to a dedicated media PC, but those looking to max out their home theater rigs should check out CodexNovus' new HDcodex. The 1080p-capable unit sports compatibility with most popular formats, including the all-important DivX and XviD (but not H.264) and supports 7.1 channel Dolby Digital and DTS sound output -- but lacks HDMI. We're also not certain why CodexNovus is calling the HDCodex a "server," since we don't see any provision for remote viewing, but marketing probably takes over when you're schlepping a $5,000 box that is barely competitive with the Xbox 360 and the Apple TV. Expect to see the DML-1000 in Q3, while the $3,499 400GB DML-400 will drop in Q3.
