My WD TV Live has served me well for years, streaming MKV files from my server to the TV in our living room but lately the little box has been getting super temperamental and I think it's on its last leg.

I'm looking for recommendations with the following criteria:

- $100 or less
- ethernet port
- HDMI out
- stream MKV (1080p and below quality)


Any suggestions?

Either buy another WD Live TV, or a Chromebox (double your budget) and load Kodi as the OS and your good to go.....

I'm in a similar situation but am going to build a full on HTPC/Server because I need expandable storage in the TB range....

Roku 3 if you're interested in other streaming things too.

MKV support will come by putting Plex on your server and running the Plex App on the Roku

I use a chromecast with an app that streams mkv. Works great for me but no Ethernet port though.

I can sell you mine. I don't use it much since hooking up my htpc. Not sure what it's worth, but shoot me a PM if interested.
