We had a lot of fun in February as we got to test out a lot of products in the office. We received an advanced copy or the uber-cool D-Link 330 as well as spending the month playing with the very popular Networked Media Tank from Popcorn Hour. We were very busy trying to get all these reviews done for you guys and we still have a bunch to go for next month. So here is a review of what we covered this month.

Stage6 Closes its Doors Today


Stage6_logo.jpg
Well a sad day has now come upon us, Stage6 has officially closed its doors. Stage6 was one of the better HD video sites on the Internet. After a few days watching videos on Stage6 it made YouTube look very crass and unrefined( not that YouTube needs much help in that department ). We loved the awesome content that they provided and we are very sad to see them go. They wrote an letter to their users explaining that the shutdown was due to the tremendous cost of maintaining the site.I guess they tried to shop it around, but in the end no one was willing to buy it.

One reason this makes us so sad is that Stage6 was an integral part of the new DivX Connected platform. The new D-Link 330 is the first device to be sold using this new framework and Stage6( which is a DivX corp spin-off ) was a major part of the online experience that they bundled. We are in the middle of collecting our notes for our hands on review of the DSM-330 and the web content aspect of it was a big part of it. Looks like once the DSM-330 lands state side in a few months people will never know how cool it was to kick back on the couch and stream HD content off the web and have it feel like it was local media. Oh well, bye bye Stage6, we hardly knew ya. Of course we are the eternal optimists around here so we are holding onto hope that someone will pick up the scraps and re-open Stage6 in some form. It is far too great of a site with such an active userbase to just let die like this.

Mediagate MH-450HD Media Streamer Gets Mixed Reviews


MediaGate_450HD.jpg
Well Mediagate has launched another media streamer and it looks like they have been building on their past successes and making their latest unit one of their best looking one to date. The 450HD is in that class of streamers that allow you to either add an internal hard drive, connect a USB disk to it or have it stream from your network. We like the idea of having the internal drive as long as getting content to and from it is easy. We like to keep all of our media central so we would never store it all on the internal drive, but we like the idea of putting a few things there if we wanted to take it with us.

From looking over the specs it is fairly limited in the way in which it will connect up to your entertainment center. It only has Component, Composite and S-Video for video which might make some people unhappy. If you are going to put HD in your product name people are going to expect HDMI these days. Here is the weird thing though, we went and looked at probably a dozen online reviews of this thing and they all mention that it has HDMI, even a press release we read said this. Yet when we go to the companies site and read the specs HDMI is not listed and the picture they show of the device does not have a HDMI port on it. So either the companies site is out of date or everyone just read the press release and assumed it had it. Who knows, all we know is that someone is right and someone is wrong and we have no idea who it is.

Anyway, onto what this can do and not what it may or may not be missing. There is a very well down hands on review over at PC World Australia that basically concludes that while this has some nice features there are plenty of warts to make you want to move on to another product. Even though it is billed as a high def player they say that the menu system was designed with a standard def TV in mind since when they had it on a HDTV the menus looked horrible. They also had some big complaints about the wireless setup being a nightmare.

Celrun TV: Another Cool Media Streamer Only in Korea


celrun-tv.jpg
Well another reason why it sucks not to live in Korea is the upcoming release of a very cool new media streamer, the Celrun TV. Once again some of the coolest gear is only in Korea. One of these days we are just going to have to go there and bask in the glory of all of their great hi-tech gadgets. The Celrun TV sports an internal 320GB hard drive, the ability to connect to your network via either Ethernet or Wireless, two USB ports to allow the addition of either external drives or MP3 players. There is a built in digital TV tuner so you can have it act as a PVR for you. It will output video over either HDMI, Component, Composite or S-Video and output audio via Optical, Coax or Analog. It also supports a bevy of formats including:
  • AVI
  • MPEG1/2/4
  • DivX
  • ASF
  • XviD
  • OFF
  • FLAC
  • WAV
  • H.264
  • WMV
There is no word on release date, but not that it matters since we doubt this will see the light of day in the States, but for you people over in Korea send us some information when it is released.

Hands On With the Networked Media Tank From Popcorn Hour


PopcornHour_front_of_device.jpg
We have had the Networked Media Tank( NMT ) from Popcorn hour in the office for about a month now and we wanted to share with you our findings. We have been waiting for this device to become available for a long time now and we can't tell you how excited we are to finally have it at the office. So after about a month of testing we can say that this is one of the better streamers we have had the opportunity to test out. One of the main draws of the NMT is its ability to playback just about any format you can throw at it. Other then a few audio formats it played back everything that we tried. To many streamers focus on a few formats and leave out so many of the really popular ones. The people at Popcorn Hour must have realized that there really weren't that many streamers that could just play everything so they threw it all in the NMT.

Another huge feature where the NMT rises above the crowd is its ability to grab media in so many different ways. You can add an internal hard drive and just playback from that, or you can connect to devices on your network via Samba or NFS. Additionally it will pick up UPnP and HTTP media servers. This is probably the most full featured streamer we have come across to date in terms of how it can access your media. It just packs so many options in there that it has been hard for us to figure out something else we would want.

Check out after the jump for our detailed look into how this beast of a media streamer performs when we put it to the test.

Study Shows Home Media Streaming Growing But Not There Yet


Not that it is much of a surprise to anyone that follows this area of technology, but the mainstream has yet to catch onto media streaming. We have seen a lot of headway with products like AppleTV and the Slingbox, but still most people listen to their music either with CDs or with a MP3 player and watch their movies via DVD. People haven't caught onto the world of streaming media. This is mostly because there is yet that killer product. The iPod single handedly brought MP3s to the masses. MP3 players existed before the iPod, but it was only techie geeks for the most part that used them. Well the media streaming market is still waiting for their iPod. Sure AppleTV has done a good job, but it still isn't taking off like some expected it to. Maybe with the addition of movie rentals it will, we'll see. I think it comes down to two things: no one has yet made a simple, elegant easy to use media streamer that just works and two the media companies have made it very difficult for people to use their content how they like.

The rental market will have to go through some growing pains as it tries to figure out the best model to give to their customers. I think it is still going to take at least 3 more years for truly great products to become available. We came across a very cool study over at ehomeupgrade about the projected rise of the in home media server market. It basically says that it is growing fast, but it still isn't there yet. They also mention that in the next 3 years we should see very rapid growth in the adoption of these technologies. Check out after the jump for the full press release.

Hands On With The HAVA Titanium HD WIFI Place-Shifting Streamer Part 1


front_hava.jpg
We have had the HAVA Titanium HD WIFI device in the office for awhile now and we wanted to report back with our thoughts. We have had the HAVA Wireless HD as our main TV-Streamer for a few months and while we have enjoyed it a ton it just never felt as polished as some of its mature competitors. Well now with the Titanium HD we feel that they have broken through their beginning stage and should be considered a serious option for anyone looking to get a place-shifting device for their home. One of the main issues we had with the Wireless HD was it dropped frames a lot so that in our office we sometimes had an issue with streaming over a wireless hop. There would be some jerkiness and a non-smooth stream. The Titanium HD seems to have fixed all of this and the best part is that from the way it was designed it will be getting a lot better,

Crazy Pod Chair Makes You Think You Are In The Movie Sleeper


paradise-armchair.jpg
If you ever wanted to feel completely dorky and listen to music at the same time AND you are a big Woody Allen fan then we have something for you. Dubbed the "Armchair Paradise" this crazy chair completely envelopes you to let you rest your weary bones after a long day and listen to some tunes in complete isolation. The makers claim that it holds an advanced sound system in there so you can relax to your favorite tunes streamed into the chair ball while you relax. While this isn't our typical story to cover we just couldn't resist. While we have been envisioning a future where all of our media is digital and can be accessed anywhere and shared with everyone, others are finding ways to isolate us from others and make us look nuts. :) If you haven't seen the Woody Allen movie "Sleeper" you really should as it is a pretty funny depiction of our life in the not to distant future. This chair just reminds us of too many of the silly contraptions that Woody predicts will be in our lives. Are we really that stressed out that we need a chair that covers us up and soothes us with happy music. We'll see, but we can tell you this, if anyone ever buys one of these your friends will never let you hear the end of it.

High-End Multi-room Entertainment Centers to Double in Five Years


e-center-install-graph.jpg
We all saw this one coming, but it is nice to see it in print. Parks Associates' has a report out that says the adoption of high end entertainment systems is on the rise and we should see a big change in the types of systems that are deployed. In the past installers were only doing installations in new homes because of the wiring requirements, but now with wireless and powerline technology growing at such a rapid pace things are changing. People with old homes that would otherwise not be able to either afford it or it would take to much retro-fitting to make it worth their while are able to enjoy these multi-room media streaming systems.

So while today these types of systems are out of the reach of most of us, it looks like installers are coming up to speed on using all this new technology and will be able to install these systems in all types of houses much easier. We look forward to the next 5-10 years when going into someone's house and enjoying their whole home media setup will be no big deal, as common as DVD players are now. A beautiful future if you ask us. Check after the jump for the full press release.

D-Link DSM-320 Network Media Streamer: Hands on Review

dsm-320.jpg We have had the D-Link DSM-320 in the office for far too long without doing an in depth review, so we thought it was time to just gather all of our information and share with you our thoughts. How does it stack up to the rest of the market? How does it handle all the new media types? These are questions we have been playing around with and hopeful we will answer them to you satisfaction. We knew going into this that the device had been out for awhile so it wasn't going to be as cutting edge as some of the devices we have seen recently. The DSM-320 is one of D-Links first attempts at a full featured media streamer and for a first attempt they got a lot right. We have been toying with this device for awhile now and if we'll share our thoughts after the jump.

D-Link DSM 330 First Impressions

Front of 330.jpg We have had the D-Link 330 Divx Connected device in the office for about a week now and we just wanted to post something quick to let you know our initial thoughts. We had been reading about this device for about 6 months now as rumors of its existence started to surface. Well now that we have started to kick the tires we can tell you that this is the future of media streaming in the home. The interface is intuitive and slick and works so nicely. We find ourselves fighting with so many of these devices, battling the afterthought that is the menu system. Well the Divx guys and D-Link have really thought this out and produced a fluid interface that makes sense. The overall design of all of the screens are top notch, some of the best we have seen in a media streamer to date.

The 330 does all of the basic things you would expect: video, music and photo. But it also can do so much more. The Divx Connected platform was designed with the expectation that the community would develop plug-ins to extend the functionality of the device. They have designed the system so that not only is this possible, but very easy. There is a very active community over at the labs section of the Divx site.

The one area that this device might let people down is that it only plays Divx and Xvid files currently. You can't load an ISO or play WMV files. This is the initial design and the thought was that this is an evolving platform that will add features over time in new devices. The 330 is just the first device that has the Divx Connected software installed. If you can get past the fact that you need to covert your media to one of these two formats then you are setup to have a fully functioning media streamer that will blow you away. Everything about this device is quick and responsive. Loading up our huge collection of photos or music took seconds and scrolling through them showed no lag. They have really worked on the server side of this to ensure the fast response, something many of the other streamers should do as well.

So after a week of playing with this we are thinking of doing something we never thought we would do. We are going to encode all of our ISO's into Divx. We really think this is going to be a HUGE hit when it lands in the States in a few months. The only real downside that we have seen so far is that it requires a windows machine to run the server. This is a deal breaker for some that either don't have a Windows machine or would rather not have a PC running all the time. Hopefully this is something that can be addressed down the road, but as for now you need a PC on and running Windows.

We will have another post soon with our more in depth review, but we just had to say something quickly and let people know that there is a great new media streamer on the horizon. Oh and just wait till we tell you about the cool plug-ins that we have been playing with, so cool! Stay tuned.

UPDATE: We just got word from the good people over at Divx that the 330 does indeed playback WMV/WMA as long as they do not contain DRM. Looks like we must have had some crappy test files. So there ya go, one more format to add to the list. And if you check out the community sites you can find out all sorts of cool ways to add support for a ton of more formats.

Gefen has come out with a very cool little device to solve your problem. The Gefen TV Switcher will allow you to hook up 4 HDMI 1.3 sources and then you can switch between them. It also has some built in intelligence to automatically switch to the appropriate device when it detects a new power on.

Squeezebox Duet: More Then Meets the Eye

duet.jpg Well it looks like there is more to the sweet new Squeezebox Duet then was originally let on. Seems like beyond what is already a very exciting little product, the Duet has some cool hidden features in its remote. Some of the obvious features are a small speaker on the back of the remote, an IR transmitter( the remote use WiFi to communicate to the base station ) and a headphone jack. To top it off there is a SD card slot in the battery compartment and even a 3-axis accelerometer built in. Looks like they are really giving this little product some legs, letting it grow into itself instead of making it so rigid like some other products out there. Check out this picture of the SD card slot:

squeezebox-duet-hidden.jpg Stuff like this makes us all the more excited to get out hands on this and check it out. We can't wait to see what the SD card slot can be used for and what are the possibilities for the accelerometer. Can I change the song by moving the remote or is it purely to know when it is laying down or something so it can go to sleep. Only time will tell. Stay tuned.

Sony is Getting in the Networked Audio Video World


sony_hifi_wifi.jpg We had made some predictions earlier this year saying that 2008 would be the year that streaming media around the house breaks out of things that tech savvy people do and into what everyone does. Well if CES 2008 being chalk full of media streamers wasn't clue enough it now looks like Sony is jumping head first into the market. Over at Engadget they have some leaked shots of Sony's upcoming lineup of receivers. A lot of these new systems have us in mind as they are setup to be network streamers. Whether it is the 80GB hard drive or acting as a music server to other connected devices, Sony realizes that this is the direction the market will be going and they are looking to make their presence known. If we hear anything about release date and or price we will let you know.

D-Link DSM-330: Unboxing in the USA

DSM-330.jpg We were extremely lucky to score a yet to be released product in States the other day: the DSM-330 from D-Link. This is an extremely cool device that has had rumors of its release circulating the Internet for a long time. Well as the US release approaches we were given one of the European models to do a demo with. We have only played with it for a few days and we are already very impressed. One thing that we immediately fell in love with was the openness of the product. They are actively encouraging their users to develop plug-ins for the 330 to bring even more features that were not thought up before the launch, they even have a website for it.

While we still have plenty of work to do before we can give you our full review of the device we wanted to share the standard uboxing photos that some of you love and others hate. So sit back and enjoy the 330 being unboxed in the US.

Squeezebox Duet: Pre-Orders Now Open!

duet.jpg The day has arrived everyone, the Squeezebox Duet is finally available for pre-order. We have been waiting for the next product to be released by Slim Devices for a long time now. We have been loving our Squeezebox for a few years and we were curious to see what direction the next product was going to take. Well it looks like they have taken direct aim at the Sonos people in that this unit has a fully functioning remote with a sweet little display that shows album art and your music library. The Duet remote is much smaller then the one from Sonos and looks better in our opinion. One issue we had with the Sonos was that while the remote is pretty cool in that it displays so much info it was big and out of place among the rest of your entertainment equipment. This remote just looks like another remote, albeit with a kick ass high color screen on the top. The Duet packs all the high end audio innards that you would expect from a Squeezebox, but in a much slimmer package. And just like the Squeezebox you can hook up multiple Duets throughout your home that can link together or remain separate.

They are expected to start shipments at the end of this month so if you want to be the first person on your block to own the coolest audio streamer of 2008 go pre-order NOW.

Happy One Year Birthday to Networking Audio Video

first-birthday.jpg
Well we realized this morning that it has officially been one year since we started this blog. We got into this because we realized there was no place on the net to just get info on networked media players. There are a ton of gadget sites on the web that cover everything under the sun, but when we went looking for info on different streamers we had a hard time finding someplace that just focused on streaming media. So here we are, one year later, having found out way more about media streamers then we thought possible. In the beginning we didn't think we would find more then 30 articles to write. Well as we approach our 300th we have come to realize that everyone and their grandmother is making some soft of networked media streamer these days.

So after one year we have a question to everyone. We would like to hear from you about what you want to hear in the coming year. Is there an area or product we haven't covered that you would like to see? Are there products or areas you would rather not read about here? We honestly are writing this blog to help out as many people as we can find the right streaming product, so let us know what you want to read about.

Thank you everyone for checking us out this past 12 months and get ready for an even better next 12. We have some exciting posts/contests coming up soon so come on back now ya hear.

Find Cheap Cables For Just About Anything


ethernet%2Bcrossover%2Bcable.jpg


One of the things we have to deal with on a constant basis is buying more cables to hook up the increasing number of devices we seem to be collecting at an alarming rate. It always drives us nuts going down to the local electronics store only to find them selling the gold plated special edition cable for 50 bucks. You know and we know that 99% of these high end cables are pure hype, but with little other choice we end up having to buy them anyways. Well thanks to a tipster( thanks dave ) we have found the holy grail of cheap cables. Ladies and gentlemen, behold Monoprice Cables.

Our jaw dropped when we saw some of these prices. We recently needed to buy some component cables quickly so we ended up at a local, unnamed, electronic store only to find the cheapest one they were selling was 30 bucks. Since we were short on time and figured all the other stores in the area would pretty much be the same we gave in. We knew we just got ripped off, but we didn't have time to fight it. Well just a quick glance at MonoPrice will show you cables for 7 bucks! 7!!! I wish I had found this site about a year ago, I would have saved a ton of money. Anyway, we hope we have saved some of you some of that hard earned cash. Enjoy!

Media Maestro Mini Turns Your PSP into a Remote Control

harmony_media_master_mini.jpg

So we just came across something pretty cool over at one of our favorite sites, ehomeupgrade, the ability to turn your PSP into a remote control for your Windows Media player or Apple iTunes. Lately the PSP has been getting some really cool press for adding Skype support to their hand held and now it looks like there is yet another compelling reason to pick up a PSP.

Now with Media Maestro Mini you have the ability to control your digital entertainment from your PSP. Sit back on the couch and dial up some tunes with ease and style. We love that people are finding new and different ways to interact with their media. This seems like something that could really take off. One of the biggest things about the Sonos that makes it so great is the really sweet remote that comes with it. Being able to hold something that shows you all the music you have with cover art and whatnot really adds something to the experience.

This is a free download so get out there, install this and start controlling what you hear from the PSP. Let us know what you think, we love getting user feedback on stuff like this.

Alienware Launching Their Own High Definition Media Server


alienware_front.jpg

Not content with just making high end gaming machines Alienware is getting into the media server market. Of course this media streamer isn't meant for just anyone though. Apparently it is only available via a custom install so we only present it here as more of a novelty. This is a rack mounted setup that offers just about any option you could want in a full home server setup. This is fairly beefy server using the latest 45 Nanometer chips from Intel with up to 4 TB's of storage in a RAID 5 setup. It connects to your network either via 802.11n or Gig ethernet. We saw this over at Slashgear and they pretty much drag this through the mud so take this with a grain of salt. The HDMI output is via a DVI adapter which means you'll have to output your audio some other way. We have no idea how much this will run, but if you have the need for a home server to push video throughout your house this 'could' be what you are looking for.

January 2008 Monthly Round Up for Networking Audio Video


ethernet%2Bcrossover%2Bcable.jpg


So January was a very exciting month for us. CES hit with full steam and media streamers were front and center. We couldn't be more excited that streaming media has come to the forefront of CES. We initially thought that last year was going to be the big year for streaming media, but we were wrong. AppleTV did not do as well as we thought and while there were a lot of media streaming devices released, very few did well at all. The first month of 2008 makes us think that this will be the year. Well we had a lot of fun covering all the news that this month brought. We have the entire roundup of our articles below, enjoy.
