Hi,


I'm interested in the showcenter and wonder what anybody thought. I'm looking for a wired solution and the ability to choose a song on the tv. I don't really care about the video portion but this seems to be the only that display 720 or 1080...


thanks,

This is NOT a hi-definition device. The output resolution can be scaled up to 720p or 1080i, but the input video sources are limited to 720 x 480 (DVD resolution). Scaled-up 480p is NOT HDTV. Likewise, photos - regardless of original resolution - are scaled down to 720 x 480 (0.3 mega-pixels) by the server, before being scaled back to the display resolution on the set-top box.


Please see the several previous threads here about the Showcenter and similar devices based on the Sigma Designs EM8550 chipset (ActionTec, Neuston, Elgato, etc). All share the same intrinsic limitations.
