Summary: Setup out of the box went smoothly and quickly. Both the component and HDMI connections worked flawlessly. It does not seem to be a resource hog. I have found that if you turn it off it is a little slow to restart. My solution is to just leave it on all the time. I have only used the wired ethernet connection and have no experience with the DMA2100's wireless networking.
Summary: The actual extender seems to work perfectly fine. The problem is that I can still not send video to it because of a Microsoft problem. Media Center will not recognize my TV Tuner card, this is caused by the fact that a service called "MediaCenterReceiver" will not stay running, it keeps stopping, and I don't know why. From searching the web, many people are having this problem. I have read several fixes, and tried them but they did not work!!
Linksys Media Center Extender DMA2100: Watch downloads on your TV, not huddled around a PC ...
23 August 2009
Summary: ... fed up with watching programmes downloaded from the BBC iPlayer on my PC I decided to try one of these "Windows Media Externders" and play them on my main TV. Picked this one based on price and have had it for about 6 weeks now, so can give a review of my impressions so far. The idea with these devices is that they can play video or music stored on a Windows computer remotely. The DMA2100 can work using wireless or an ethernet connection.
