It's only been a few days since we told you about LiquidTV, a package that turns a Windows PC into a TiVo based TV recorder. So imagine our surprise when we heard EngadgetHD already got their hands on LiquidTV. We'll say wer'e a bit jealous. According to EngadgetHD:
Although we wonder how big the market is for yet another piece of DVR, HTPC software, we do want to find out if the $200 price point, and $99 a year for service, is worth it for a remote, IR transceiver, hybrid tuner, antenna and software.
Very cool! Be sure to check out the complete gallery.
Okay, we don't usually cover cellphones here at NAV but we had to show you this incredible video we found at the DivX Labs of the unboxing of the Samsung I900. Trust us, it's worth watching the whole minute and a half video.
If you weren't aware, the first DivX Connected media player hit the market last month. We recently received our review unit and wanted to give you a quick unboxing before we go on with the review. We'll start with the features as listed at D-Link's website:
High Definition DivX Video
DivX Connected™ finally makes HD on your TV a reality with high-quality DivX video playback at up to HD 720p. Use HDMI (included) for the best quality or S-video, component or composite cables for your standard definition TV or HDTV.
Power to the PC
Leverage your PC power and enjoy fast, smooth, stutter-free video, music and photo playback in a rich, remote-controlled TV interface1, and add new functionality with a quick update to the DivX Connected server software. The DSM-330's only function is to stream media to your TV, making it infinitely scalable with add-on services3 and plug-ins.
The installation wizard helps you connect the DSM-330 to your network and TV, as well as set up and scan your media. It comes with all necessary cables and DivX Converter--a simple software program4 to convert videos to the DivX format on your PC.
Foundation of Your Digital Home
Add the DSM-330 to your wired or wireless home network and access media from all your PCs, hard drives and the Internet. Stream music, photos and video using wireless 802.11g or an Ethernet connection and enjoy the high-quality media experience in your home theater.
We're currently working on the review but here's some images of the unboxing:
There's been a lot of excitement over the ZvBox from ZeeVee, a unique type of media streamer. What makes the ZvBox so unique is the how it interacts and distributes your media as we mentioned in a previous article:
The box itself converts the video from the PC's VGA port into a high-def channel and sends it out to your home's coax cable network.
A PC app acts as a launcher for all the good PC-based internet video clients, like Hulu, Joost and even Microsoft's own Media Center.
The remote controls not just your TV, but the app on the PC too, giving you decent control over the otherwise PC-locked experience.
The idea of sending your PC content over you home cable setup to any TV in the house just boggles the mind. We've recently received our review unit and we'll get it setup and let you know what we think but we'll start you off with a quick unboxing.
We just got the amazing new 780HD media streamer in the office and we wanted to share with you the standard unboxing pictures that some of you like and others apparently hate with a passion. We will have a quick first impressions post up soon about this and our detailed hands on review will probably be out next week. As anyone that reads the site often knows, we love ourselves some Mvix. We have been using the 760HD as our primary media streaming device and it has rocked. We have been anxiously awaiting the release of the 780HD in the states as it promised a lot of new features and improvements on some of the older features. Well without further ado here are the pictures.
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.
We just received our fancy new HAVA Titanium HD WIFI TV streaming device and we couldn't be more excited. We had reviewed the Monsoon Multimedia HAVA Wireless HD awhile back and it truly made us believers in the TV placeshifting idea. We really didn't get the allure of placeshifting until we tried the Hava. We were blown away at how cool it was to not only watch your TV from anywhere, but also control it as well. We have been converts ever since. Well the good people over at Monsoon have just sent us a HAVA Titanium HD to demo. We are very excited to tear threw this one, but as always we want to start out with the fun unboxing photo shoot. So check it out after the break to see it in all its glory.
