The ScreenPlay TV Link Director Edition offers the same features as the ScreenPlay Director HD, but doesn't include a built-in hard drive. Instead, users can connect their own drives to the device. Both can stream content from other computers on the local network, attached hard drives and USB flash drives, as well as digital cameras.

The ScreenPlay Director HD also includes CinemaNow movie and TV show rentals and purchases through Cinema Now, YouTube support, and RSS support.

"We want to make home media players that are easy to use and affordable," Iomega told The Mac Observer.

The ScreenPlay Director HD is priced at US$249.99, and the ScreenPlay TV Link Director Edition costs $99.
