I just read the AVS Reviews of the "Top 6 Streaming-Media Players". In the review of the Netgear NTV300SL aka NeoTV Max, it says it streams Amazon Prime Instant Video. I own this media streaming device (purchased June '13) and I am an Amazon Prime member. But I cannot see where the player works with Amazon Prime. Do I need a firmware update or something?

Only has Netflix and Vudu (never dug to deep into other internet channels) as of right now. This little box would be great if it's dlna/upnp wasn't so finicky and it gets miracast support. So far chromecast gets used more for Netflix and YouTube in my house.

This works great with Mezzmo for DLNA. Never had an issue.

I have both the Neo and the Amazon Fire TV. The Neo does not have Amazon on it, however it works flawlessly with my Plex server via the My Media app. It plays all my MKV and MP4 videos with 5.1 audio (Dolby Digital and DTS) with no hiccups at all. The interface is a simple DLNA one and I miss the slickness of the Plex App on the AFT, but until Amazon fixes it's Plex issues, I'm using the Neo to stream from my Plex Server.

I bought the Neo on clearance at Best Buy for 40 bucks because it is supposed to stream Vudu 3D, however I have been unsuccessful in getting my 3D movies to work. My now defunct PS3 streamed Vudu 3D perfectly and I was hoping the Neo could replace it. No luck so far.

^^ thx for the info. I too bought the box for Vudu, which It turns out I don' even use.

I didn't know it had 3D movies, I'll have to give it a try.

I'm wanting to watch the sopranos and it's not on netflix. I guess I'll just download it.
