Summary: I bought this device from Circuit city in May 2008 for approximately $79 (yes you read it right; seventy nine), no wonder they went out of business. I have had this device for almost a year and half now and I have greatly enjoyed it. First I tried to set it up using its wireless features and it sure found my router and it was on the network in few minutes.
Summary: I've been wanting to do the full PC to TV thing for a while now so that I could watch my Divx movies from Bittorrent, but never had the cash or time to set up the entire rig. I also wanted to run my music through my surround that is set up on my TV. Both of these things I have done before with my computer with the S-Video out on my Video card and a 40ft stereo cable running from one room to the other.
Summary: For the first 6 months it worked great for me. Picture quality on my plasma via HDMI was fantastic, beyond my expectations. Listening to music over digital optical link with the receiver doing DAC is really good quality. I did not need to load in any other server software, recognises windows media center and Intel server I have on my VIIV desktop. I got hardware version A2 and updated firmware 1.08. I have used a lot of server/clients before and this so far is the best.
OMG - This box is great ! ! ! (after the firmware upgrade)

Summary: This little guy exceeds my expectations. I never take the time to write reviews, but after spending two days with my new little friend, the DSM-510, I feel he deserves some outward praise. My setup: I have a PC with Windows Vista MCE running in a closet. It has a tuner card on it, and I have webguide installed, so I can control my TV recording from a browser.
Summary: Jolle du verkar ha missuppfattat några saker. DSM-510 är en UPnP mediaspelare. Du behöver en UPnP server för att kunna visa filmer, bilder eller lyssna på musik. Vista har den inbyggd iom WMP 11, till XP måste du uppgradera till WPM 11 (Windows Media Player). Det går visst att styra UPnP uppspelningen från en dator. För att kunna göra detta behöver man ett UPnP Controller - finns en rad sådanna freeware - själv använder jag cidero (http://www.cidero.com) till just detta.
