Great potential...

James Wire "Windows home server and TiVo were..., Amazon
30 November 2008
  • Summary: The DSM 510 is really a great concept and works pretty well. Wired network hookup was straight forward and easy to accomplish. It quickly found my Windows Home Server and all of the media on it. If there are any weaknesses they are the lack of sorting options and the remote arrow keys producing multiple responses. As expected the device will not work with my DVI-I input on my monitor with an HDMI to DVI-I cable, for now the composite output is acceptable.

It has its quirks but I love it

  • Summary: Ok, I will agree with some of the people here that this thing does have its problem, but with a little tweaking it works well. I have my connected through a Netgear MIMO router to a Vista (boo) machine. I bought this from my brother in law who went full scale media center pc. I am running .jpgs, .mpeg and .avi. Mostly .avi files. It streams great with no skips or problems over wireless on both the unit and the computer.

Nice Addition to the Home

  • Summary: I just purchased this unit after much consideration and reading online. The mixed reviews are completely understandable; this is not a device for the low-tech individual. If you know enough to get a home network up and running, then you'll be fine, I promise. The unit itself is very nice looking and well built.

Works without issues as advertised

  • Summary: I bought this for two reasons: hi-def video & normal audio (mp3) playback from a 2tb NAS that contains my movies & music. Plugged everything in (ac adapter, hdmi, ethernet cable), & pow, it all worked right out of the box (using Windows XP Pro SP2). The included Viiv software installed & ran just fine for me, no issues there.
  • Pros: Excellent connectivity, does what it's supposed to do.
  • Cons: None, really.

This is recommended but you have to know what you are doing.

  • Summary: Finally, something I can recommend: the Dlink DSM-510. Here's my story. My wife bought me DSM-510 around Thanksgiving for this Christmas. They had it on sale. I did lots of research before hand to ensure that I knew what I was doing. I was going to ensure that the firmware on the unit was upgraded to v1.07. Problem was this unit was fubarred. I turned on with the Dlink screen and then went black. No video no nothing.

W-LAN Media-Streamer P/L gut, aber halt nicht mehr

  • Summary: Ich habe den Player gekauft um über WLAN Filme (OTR), Musik und Fotos auf dem Röhren-TV, also analog, wieder zu geben, HDMI ist aber auch vorhanden. der Sound wird digital über die optische Toslink-Verbindung auf meine 5.1 Anlage gesendet. Mein Mybookworld-NAS hat einen TwonkyMedia-Server und mit diesem arbeitet das Gerät auch sehr gut zusammen. Eigentlich alle meine Daten werden abgespielt, nur H264-kodierte Dateien nicht (OTR-HQ Dateien). HDMI habe ich nicht getestet.
