Got it hooked up HDMI-DVI, and the picture looks good. UI has several options:
EXPLORE: movie, music, photo, USB, USB, network.
When I explore the network, I see a couple PCs and a few folders in each, but when I navigate from one to another, the file list does not change on several. I can see the folders on one PC from the other, but not with this. Maybe I have to tweak permissions. I hit REFRESH, but it still displays bad directory info. This is with the USB cable unplugged, of course, otherwise the network would not be visible, according to the manual (and experience).
One PC is WIN VISTA HOME PREMIUM, one XP PRO. I can open files in several folders, but find that some files open OK, and it will not open others, saying bad file type. One .asf file worked, another would not. For some reason, it will not display a .dvr-ms file that was recorded in Media Center.
Honestly, I have not fooled around with video files too much in awhile, so am not up-to-date on all the CODECs and types of mpegs, etc. Most of these files play OK across our LAN on all the PCs. The Klegg unit does not play numerous files.
So far, I am unimpressed. It would not play a file I downloaded using DVArchive from my ReplayTV 50XX that plays perfectly using Windows MediaPlayer.
I will fool around more later...want to take advantage of this beautiful Southern California day.
Big question is why won't it display directories from other computers on the network properly (shared folder looks OK, as do the MUSIC, MOVIE, and PICTURES folders I added to the hard drive I installed in the Klegg unit).
I have not installed any of the SW that came on the CD. Maybe that is part of the problem??? but I would not think so.
I do so hat VISTA's permissions stuff, but the XP folders should be shared right.
General comments before signing off:
1. Nice little unit. Looks good. If it did what I want, it would be a keeper.
2. Crummy manual, but workable if you know what you are doing.
3. So far, just using it on a wired network and, except for the folders not displaying what is in them, no problems.
4. Setup was easy so far.
5. Quick boot time.
6. I have not tried any HD material yet, as it will not do my ReplayTVHD files (from beta version), nor will it playback the .dvr-ms files
