I am looking to buy a media player that will playback edius HQ or HQX avi 1920 x 1080 50p (8 or 10 bit) files to a TV via HDMI. The unit should be able to accept files from a usb stick (or as a bonus option with external USB Hard drive input). No built in HDD is needed in the player.

Is HDMI 1.3 capable of HD at 50 fps or do I need a unit with HDMI 1.4?

Does any one have any recommendations, if not I can always export from Edius to MPG2 or MP4 1920 x 1080 50p files.

Thanks Peter
