Iomega ScreenPlay DX HD and TV Link DX HD Media Players sneak out

Two new Iomega media streamers have shown up for a CES 2011 debut, though the company isn't talking about them quite yet. The Iomega ScreenPlay DX HD Media Player and Iomega ScreenPlay TV Link DX HD Media Player each pack network connectivity, HDMI and multiple USB 2.0 ports, as well as a QWERTY-equipped remote control.

According to the ScreenPlay DX HD Media Player product page, the box has a 2TB hard-drive inside and comes with a WiFi USB dongle for wireless network connectivity. There's also up to 1080p Full HD playback, DLNA support and an optical digital output. Supported file types include H.264, WMV, RMVB, MPEG-1/2/4 (part 2, ASP), DivX, DivX Plus HD (MKV),  XviD, AVI(Xvid, AVC, MPEG1/2/4), ISO, VOB, MP4, MOV and MKV.

We can't spot a product page for the ScreenPlay TV Link DX HD Media Player, but it has fewer output options and no USB device port; we're guessing that means it lacks onboard storage. Iomega will likely make these two media players official any time now, so we'll update when we known more.
