This looks like a very cooool alternative to the Google Chromecast Audio Devices that are currently being sold (via various HUKD Deals) as a 2/dual Package Combo (for way more than this!) at Curry's Stores Nationwide.

Anyway, here's the Company speel:

Strange looking device, not sure what to make of it oO
Not sure it should be compared to a chromecast. Seems vastly more useful than than that. Can't find any use for one in my setup (I've been trying)
I may finally be able to walk away from a decent tech deal.

It is basically a wifi bridge in between two ethernet cable ends. i.e. Wirelessly bridging your router to another wired networked device.
Weird set of features (bridge/repeater/AirPlay) but if your setup happens to need all of those things then this is a steal. Pretty niche though I reckon
Does anyone know if it will extend WiFi via its network port? Is that repeater mode?
My house is fully wired but I only have the router & separate switch under the stairs so WiFi isn't great in some parts of the house.

You and me BOTH?, hahahahaha.

I too had initially wondered same?, lol.

But unlike that of either Google's Chromecast, &/or Google's Chromecast AAudio varients, this little baby does NOT require any Android/iOS Software to drive it? (whereas my 2 earlier aforementioned does!).

So this theoretically could potentially have more arms & legs than Google's own equivalent? (or not!, depending on how you like look at it?, lol).

Etc, etc, etc .....

Was a bit confused as to how this works, but this review ironed any concerns out for me, cheers man.
That is one ugly looking contraption.
Yeh not quite sure what you'd want to plug this into.
Suggestions of things to plug this into.
A raspberry pi, that is close to your media centre
Xbox (or original xbox 360), or any retro console with network only
A samsung TV that requires an overpriced wifi dongle.
A linux laptop with a irritating as hell Atheros wifi chip, which seems to think a hardware switch is off.
SIP phones
Cheapo NAS hdd case you got ages ago.

Hmmm. Cool. But do I need it?

Hmmm. Cool. But do I need it?



Probably not, but it's reduced and gone hot, so you will want it, right?
Hmmm. Interesting gizmo. (Which I don't need either)

But from that review ....

"However, we found that the Ethernet connection to our test laptop kept cutting out when the CV-7438nDM was powered by USB but not when it was plugged into the mains."

The need to run it from the mains (to maintain a good signal if their test is right) is a little off putting.

These won't generally be be required for this Device anyway, but for those of you that may feel they require such Software/have a need for such Software then to aid in enhancing their use of this Device, when attached in some way to your NAS, etc, etc (which isn't a strict requirement either way mind), then:

AllCast - Android Apps on Google Play

play.google.com/sto…=en

LocalCast for Chromecast/DLNA - Android Apps on Google Play

play.google.com/sto…=en

There are iOS equivalent's of the above 2 App's too via Apple's own App's Store as well.

Hopefully this will help somebody somewhere?. :-)

That is one ugly looking contraption.



Looks like a megaphone to me as communication apparatus.:)

Yeah, I ordered one too, it's not even arrived yet and I already know it's going to be absolutely useless to me, as it was a repeater that I needed. 7dayshop have changed the product description now to remove any mention of it being a repeater, but the old version of the page is still available on google's cache! I'm pretty cheesed off now because I've just bought a paperweight!
Yes and I have a screenshot, nothing worse when people lie to get your money
