[citation][nom]Kaiser_25[/nom]130$ seems a little steep...but i guess cheaper than a new TV that may not be needed..?[/citation]
Agreed. Now a days you can build a HTPC pretty cheap around 200dollars. Also, I'm pretty sure not everyone has a PC that is in line of sight from their HDTV and they probably don't want to move their PC near their TV.

$200 HTPC? Not one that won't studder the whole time.
[citation][nom]hoof_hearted[/nom]A Zotac, Shuttle, etc with XBMC works just fine for me. Plus alot more freedom as far as what you can stream.[/citation]
Don't see how you get more freedom than using a PC. This thing basically is a wireless monitor. It isn't a bad price but it doesn't support HDCP or 5.1 surround. You have to go up to their $160 model for 5.1, but still no HDCP, so no blu-ray.
I built my HTPC for ~$350 1.5 years ago, so this is cheaper, but I also didn't have a PC in range of my TV and wasn't going to put it there either.
This could potentially be good for my living room. My gaming PC is across the room from the TV so a wired HDMI is no option. It would be interesting to see if the more powerful processors could handle gaming with this type of setup. It sounds like the USB adapter requires quite a bit of processing power.
my 5 yard cable was cheaper
(a 10 yard would also be cheaper)
poor me...everything else wireless except
my parent's TV as a monitor for movies
when I visit them every Christ's Mass
The cable is always there for me and my laptop and
that Christian movie, different each year (sometimes animated)
Happy wireless holidays those who can afford the top model
(and have the needed GHz, HDTV, etc)
Does anyone know when the 1.4a (3D over HDMI) support is available?
This is a waste of time. I already have a perfect solution at Home. C2D PC 2.6Ghz, 4GB RAM, ATI 5450 GPU, 6.6TB HD Space....it does: 24/7 downloading, media streaming to multiple device in my house, remote living room TV connected using WDTV Live using wired connections via Aztech 500MBps power plug line, TVERSITY as the streaming software (can even set to decode files not supported by my WDTV Live, ex: RMVB)....it basically does everything and feed all the TV's, laptops and PCs in my house with medias 24/7, with new media available instantly upon download completes. And it is not very expensive either (just the PC, not including the TVs of course!)
