Great product but very ordinary price!
I'm a bit of a dinosaur when it comes to these things so bear with me..when streaming content from a PC to the TV, I assume the PC has to be running constantly for this to work? It just puts me off thinking of the power usage of my hefty gaming PC as well as my plasma and this box simultaneously .

If your using Nvidia Gamestream or Plex on the PC then yes it needs to be on for the content to stream off of it (PC's don't use that much power in real terms "they are not washing machines") Geforce Now streams games directly from Nvidia's own server farms however their is no integration with Steam or other services so your progress is only to saved to Nvidia's servers and no achievements. (You need a wired ethernet connection or very strong 5Ghz wifi to use either properly, homeplugs don't mix well with Geforce Now causing serious issues) iPlayer became active on all devices with the 2.1 update from today.

OK, thanks. I guess that's me out then as I use homeplugs and have no way of utilising a wired Ethernet connection from my back bedroom man cave to the front living room unless the wife leaves me.

Plug something that you can run some network and general speedtests from and check your latency and ping. My house and wiring is pretty old and my Shield TV hates my homeplugs (even my AV2 Gigabit ones) your mileage may very. Netflix and Google Play Movies work fine on it, just game streaming is a fail unless I directly wire it upstairs. (it's strange as Steam In Home Streaming works perfectly fine to my HTPC and you can't even tell it's running over the network on games like Dirt 3)

Try an AC router as bridge (or media bridge) on a high 5GHz channel. If your main router has significant wireless traffic (from other users) then try 2nd router on a different channel or try one of the newer routers with 2x 5GHz radios and dedicate one radio just for your bridge.
I use 2x Netgear R7000 - one exclusively for the media bridge R6300 downstairs. Maybe overkill but works.
