Hello, I could not upload more than 3 photos but they will be enough just for a quick pick.
I received it on a big box and I thought it was going to be just the size of a HardDisk. Inside the brown box, there it was my new best friend
It comes with USB cable, Component (3 RCA) cable, AV (2RCA audio, 1RCA video) cable, AC adapter, CD, remote, batteries, the anthenna and the Eureka (hurrah).
First I connected all the cables, I used the DVI, and the analog 5.1 output to my Home Theater. I did not plan to install the HD right now, so I was just worried to connect it to my network.
First I configured the IP for Wireless, I left the DVI in [Auto mode] and the image came to my 32" LCD TV. At first none of the icons was enabled, then I realized it was to soon to scan my network so I inserted my USB memory and in 2sec one of the USB icons was enabled. I could browse some photos and 2 mp3 I had in that moment. Then I started to be less worry about something I could do wrong. when I got backward to the menu I saw my network icon enabled, I click it and I could not see a thing
so I remembered one post from a pal here that recommended to disable the firewall. so I did in both computers I had. nothing . . . . I double checked my IP settings (static IP is not in conflict I thought, my router is x.x.x.x, it is OK, mmmhh....) when I got back from the setup screen (every time you change something in the IP settings it takes 30sec to re-boot) I clicked the network icon again and voila, my both computers were there
. Then once you click on any of them, you are able to see all the shared folders you have. Just to test (I am very stubborn) I enabled my firewall back and the folders were still there so I thought, it doesn't matter about the Firewall because the [File sharing] is in the exception list of Windows Firewall tab.
I tried random MP3, all good with no problem, then I tried some of my divx, xvid avi's and all were good, tried subs (srt mostly) they worked!
When I tried an DVD in ISO, it played by 6sec and then started to des-sync all, mmhhh, I tried a DVD ripped (.TS .IFO), the same, squares and des-sync audio. Then I tried the WIRED network and then played well so I realized it is still to much to ask to stream DVDs by wireless.
Please fell free to ask anything. I have in mind to try a Winamp .pls Shoutcast file tonite.
