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.

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...
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?
