Affordable XDCAM 1080i DolbyE Hardware player

I'm looking for an XDCAM 1080i DolbyE hardware player that is able to play XDCAM disks and .mxf XDCAM files, but that doesn't cost a lot and that is not as big as a professional VTR. I mean, something more like a bluray than a VTR.
I recently bought a Panasonic 4K HDR bluray reader which also reads H.264 10bit files, but unfortunately, it doesn't read MPEG-2 files (XDCAM files). I could re-encode XDCAM files to H.264 as standard bluray and watch them at home, but I'd like to avoid that, also because 4:2:2 (yv16) -> 4:2:0 (yv12) introduces noticeable banding. I know that many of them don't have an HDMI output, but only an SDI one, which is not a big deal, though, 'cause I think there are SDI to HDMI converter cables out there.

Thank you in advance.
