NIce one, ordered for collection!

I had a quick look at the manual and it would appear that the DMA1000 only outputs stereo audio regardless of input and is not capable of playing back H.264 content.

I think I'll pass.

Thanks for sharing your research. That makes this item of no use to me. I'm trying to use DTS where I can, and I will get blu-ray sooner rather than later, so this is a step in the wrong direction. There is stock in Basildon area.

I saw that too...I guess you live relatively near me then :P

Fabulous deal - streams AVI, XVID, MPEGs and MP3s, and even handles movies with 5.1 surround.

thanks to OP -> Heat and rep added :)
#17
Just to let you all know I went to pick up mine from the Wrexham store today and its actually £24.97 in store so saved a further £5.

blu ray and HD content:
http://www.digitalera.co.uk/products/Dune_BD_Prime_Blu_Ray_Player-1149-0.html

the first of its kind - expect a lots in the next year...

http://www.wegotserved.co.uk/2008/12/03/netgear-eva9000-digital-entertainer-elite-details-leaked/ is also looking good (no blu ray)

have a look on mpcclubs http://www.mpcclub.com/banner_log.php?id=5111 pdf

Oh and the popcorn hour (available loads of places, just use google) is very popular but not always the best option in terms of build quality.

People looking at this might like the Western Digital TV:
http://www.wdc.com/en/products/products.asp?driveid=572

I just bought one and it's fantastic. Doesn't stream (you need to connect USB storage to it, whether that be a HD or flash drive) but outputs 1080p and also supports h264 and pretty much anything else you throw at it. Also outputs DTS/Dolby Digital if you have a compatible amp.

By the time you've factored in the powerline adapters you'd need to put with the Zyxel unit, it should also work out slightly cheaper at around £75.

Original product is a good deal though so heat and rep added!

The Western Digital box for £80 on Play does HD MKVs without problems if HD is what you want. Just plug in a HDD or pen via USB and watch away.

What does this do?

At the moment I have loads of videos on my PC - which I have to connect to my VCR via S Video and Audio L/R cables.

Also, my laptop doesnt have S video sockets so I cant connect it to my TV - will this help me connect it?

Thanks
#22
doesn't this just do what the xbox360,wii and ps3 can do??

Yes but it's useful for like another room, say a kitchen or bedroom, especially as it is smaller and also if you have the network that runs through the mains. Or if you have a central media machine and you don't want to use say a 360 because you'd need to deal with the noise and possibly buy a remote for the best experience. Or, of course, if you have none of the above. Xbox 1 is a great alternative but is bigger, noiser and doesn't have HDMI.

Via your home network you can share some folders (i.e. your video folder) and it'll be accessible through this box into your HDTV via HDMI. Then, using the remote, you can access the folder and view the media. Of course the PC will have to be on so it can be accessed but it's a nice self contained unit that may not crash like a PC (and if it does it'll boot up quicker) and has a remote for 'sit on the sofa' type convenience.
#25
good at that price, I had a pc under my big screen for this type of thing so I do not need one, heat added though.
#26
Heres my set up.

TV & PC in lounge - PC connected to TV/VCR

Laptop upstairs NOT connected to TV etc.

What bits of kit do I need in addition to the above product to connect laptop & PC to make it viewable through TV?

(Laptop is connected to broadband cable internet wirelessly)

All the Zyxel stuff seems to be on offer there. Found a nice Wireless router with homeplug AV built in there for under £25 !! Cable and ADSL versions, if you can find stock. Glasgow and Ayr are nearest with stock to me, i'm in Ediburgh.. :( ah well..
Digital media streamer not in stock anywhere close to me...Too slow!
#29
Great find!

I have a quick question though - I have quite an old LCD that doesn't have a PC connection. I basically just want to connect my laptop to the tv to watch content on my TV (can be wired). The TV I have is http://www.amazon.co.uk/Sony-KLV30HR3-30-XGA-LCD/dp/tech-data/B000305656/). Would I need to buy 2 of the ZyXEL NBG318S Routers, or would the DMA100 itself be sufficient? Any help would be much appreciated!

Ethernet cable from yr laptop to the box. Share a folder, point the device at the shared folder. HDMI out from the device to the TV.
#31
If i have movies with subtitles on my pc i.e. .srt type files that need to be loaded when the movies is played. Can this media streamer also help me here?
#32
It's a cheap deal, but only if you are happy to have a wire trailing from your PC to the media player. I had a look at one in store but decided it would be a messy option with wires. Just my opinion, but personally I would go for a wi-fi media streaming option.

Does anyone know if this supports DIVX ? There seems to be mixed reviews on the net (some say it will support, others not.)

Ok, quick couple of questions if I may, from you folk..

1) If I bought this box, I would need to buy 2 routers on top, correct? Then what would be the cheapest option there? (The op listed 2 wireless routers, which although nice is not entirely necessary as my PC sits relatively close to TV, so wired could be ok if cheaper).

2) I only have a 30gig harddrive on my PC, and my files are stored on an external HD. Would I have to move those over to PC, or can I just turn it on, and navigate the external HD folder like I would via PC?

Thanks in advance..

1) No - You need the device to be "on your network" do you use a router between your PC and your Internet connection (phone line / cable) basically you need a ethernet cable from this device to your router. If it's a long way you could use a pair of powerline adapters.

Update - Actually if you use a USB modem you could still put a crossover ethernet cable from your PC to this device.

2) I've not used this particular device but I do the same thing using a XBOX360. You need to set the folder containing the files to be shared under Windows media player. OR it could be that this device is intelligent enough to see a folder shared by Windows.

If I could find any stock to get 2 of them I'd let you know !
#39
Thanks very much Basset, for the info. Of course asking the questions is one thing, and finding one of these in stock is another! ;-)

I have an xbox 360, I'd be interested in any pointers to where I could find out more info for doing the same thing? I'd love to be able to stream media from my PC to my TV - but honestly haven't the foggiest where to start. Getting old see - technology confuses me. :thinking:

Great find, heat added.

Just got one in PC World St Helens (Merseyside).
