"Today I'm going to be taking a look at the Linux powered Patriot Box Office (PBO), a Personal Video Player (PVP) designed for the home entertainment or theater system. The device is small, easy to use, and provides all the basic features that someone would want in a PVP system. So, let's move on to the system and take a look around.

"As you can see, the PBO comes standard with screws (for mounting the hard drive), a composite audio/video cable, power brick, remote, the PBO unit itself, a user cd which includes the manual and a transcoding tool for Windows users, an HDMI cable, batteries for the remote, and a quick start guide.

"As an additional added feature, you can pick up their special wireless adapter for use in the device for those who prefer to use wireless networking. Now, from here on out I won't have any other screenshots, as there's no easy way for me to get them, and taking pictures with a digital camera just doesn't work and really does not do the PBO any justice."
