Technical user device

W.L., Amazon
25 August 2008
  • Summary: I am in a Network Admin so the network setup was a snap (both wireless and wired) BUT...Nothing worked. Every media format I tried to play would give me the "media format is not supported" message. Image files would not display and mp3's would not play. Even after several cold reboots.

EVA8000 After 1 Month - Good, not Great, but what is better?

SkykingUSA, Amazon
27 June 2008
  • Summary: It's really more of a 3.75, but definitely not a 4, so I had to rate it a 3. I have had my EVA for about 4 weeks. I have had pretty mixed results when watching video files. The device either locks up or reboots itself at 2-3 times per week, which I am not happy about.

HD? Only if HD stands for Halts Daily

Harold Manback, Amazon
1 March 2008
  • Summary: Netgear EVA8000 Digital Entertainer HD Like some other reviewers I was hesitant to become an early adopter of an untried technology and my fears turned out to have been well-founded. The EVA8000 is best described as a brilliant concept that has been very poorly implemented.

Not ready for Prime Time

A. C. Eberhardt "Aceface3", Amazon
6 May 2007
  • Summary: This product needs some software and firmware upgrades to make it a viable media center. Specifically the UI structure still seems to be in Beta mode. Setup was painless (altho if you are VISTA OS make sure you upgrade the firmware), Internet Radio worked well and playing AVI & WMV files worked...

6heads, Ciao

  • Excerpt: A great addition to any HD tv you may have in your house, perfect for a secondary TV such as a bedroom this will allow you to stream from your PC to the TV over wifi in HD. Although there isn't exactly what could be considered a huge amount of HD on the net you are legally allowed to rip...

SMB super, UPnP nicht (wie ngegeben) da?!!?

Frank Roth "Samun", Amazon
13 May 2008
  • Summary: Erst einmal zum Gerät selbst: Baubreite wie ein Hifi-Gerät, Material: "Edelplastik" (aber nicht hässlich!) Alle Kabel werden mitgeliefert! Nun zu den Funktionen: Gerät über SMB (Windowsfreigabe) - in meinem Fall über Laufwerksfreigabe auf dem Mac problemlos möglich, alle Lieder/Fotos/Filme werden...

Konflikt zwischen Audio-Video und EVA 8000

Manfred Muno "Calpos", Amazon
4 February 2008
  • Summary: Das Gerät ist von der Funktion ok, leider kann ich es nicht mit dem Audio-Video-Gerät gemeinsam betreiben, weil sich die Signale der Fernbedienung gegenseitig stören. Schade

Acceptabel

pjos, Prisjakt
18 September 2007
  • Summary: Köpte en 16 september med FW ver. 1.2.20 I min mening borde inte produkten säljas. Mjukvaran är långt ifrån färdigutvecklad. Fungerar inte med VISTA shares utan en HotFix från Microsoft. Läs hur snacket går på EVA8000 forum innan Ni slår till http://forum1.netgear.com/forumdisplay.php?
