Right now I'm able to access my media files (music, photos, video) via wifi using the remote. The remote screen, as you probably know, catalogs all of these files right onto your remote screen. You can even view your photos on the remote although the pics are very small. As far as audio goes, I'm able to listed to my mp3's but right now that's confined to my computer monitor. I have ordered a 50ft optical cable to run over to my amplifier so I can listen to these files in my den by using the Nevo. I'm not sure what type of outputs my video card has but I went ahead and ordered a 50ft S-Video as well.
I guess right now, things aren't that different seeing as how I'm not sending the media anywhere new. As far as I can tell, one of two things is required for that: direct cabling or a media server set up with my home theater. SOMEONE PLEASE CORRECT ME IF THERE IS ANOTHER OPTION. At one time I thought the NevoLink would be able to receive media wirelessly and transmit the data over optical, etc. but after looking closely at the diagrams of the unit, I realize this is not so.
As far as how I paired the two, I followed along with the instructional video on Nevo University step by step, pausing on occasion, until it happened. I do recall having the same problem as you: when pressing the "..." icon to select each piece of the pairing, nothing showed up. I wish I could tell you what I did, but I tried it several times (over maybe 15-20min) and all of a sudden, they appeared. Ever since thaowevert first "nonresponsiveness", my server has been picked up without fail. I'll try to recall of I actually did more than "try, try again" and if anything comes to mind, I'll let you know. However, those days of my life are a blur due to banging my head repeatedly against a wall during this process.
