This looks interesting, especially as my Xbox 360 is out for repair. Shame it doesn’t do ms-dvr format from Windows Media Centre, but it does say ” It also supports access to content on Microsoft® Windows® Media Center PCs through Windows Media Connect”
The cheapest I have found it for is about £130
Another day, another media streamer. True, the concept isn’t a bad one – video content is best enjoyed on a big telly in the comfort of your lounge, rather than hunched up in front of a computer screen. But with numerous offerings on the market, there’s little to tell them apart. Netgear’s Digital Entertainer EVA700, however, has a nifty little feature up its sleeve…
Like many such gadgets, it comes with standard composite-video, s-video and SCART connectos, but it’s also packed with an HD component-video output. This means if you’re HD readybut your component-video ports are just sitting there gathering dust, the EVA700 makes an ideal lounge-side companion.
