Old but reliable, SwissCenter breathes new life into it

RyanUK, Dooyoo

  • Excerpt: This was the first streamer I purchased. It was when I had a CRT TV. At the time it cost me £117.52. The technology is now "old" so it's probably a lot cheaper now. Despite its age, it works well. Admittedly, it has now been replaced by a PS3 for streaming purposes, but sometimes I still prefer the ShowCenter for some of its features that the PS3 lacks (such as film and TV information*). *Needs third party software, which is mentioned later in the review.
  • Pros: Reliability

  • Excerpt: "...more information. I have the pinnacle showcenter 200 which cost £175, and for what it can do is worth it. There are two parts to the showcenter, you have the silver box and remote. There are no buttons on the silver box which will connect to you tv or hifi simply connect using a scart lead or Composite and Y/C (S-Video) outputs. There are optical or phono connections for audio if you wanted to connet to your hifi. The other part of the package is ...

  • Summary: Ändrar mitt omdömme totalt. Försökte sälja den men ingen i min bekanskapskrets tyckte att de klarade av den eller att den var stabil. Proppade i den i min andraTV men verkar som om XP SP3 inte gillar den. Helt Out of date numera och passar bättre på skroten. USB porten är värdelös och om man fpr igång en film - stannar den efter ett tag.

Zusatzinfo für Showcenter

jeffeff, Ciao
26 January 2009
  • Summary: Da hier eigentlich schon das wichtigste beschrieben wurde, noch eine kleine Ergänzung: Unter der älteren Software 3.1 ist es auch möglich eine PCTV-Karte von Pinnacle zu steuern. Allerdings nicht so, das man einfach ein Programm auswählen kann und los, man kann die Sendungen die man sehen will aber einfach vom Showcenter aus zur Aufnahme programmieren und dann direkt anschauen incl. Timeshift. Was noch besser ist, ist die Oxyl-box.
  • Pros: Sehr viele Möglichkeiten, still und keine Abwärme=wenig Stromverbrauch
  • Cons: Kann keinen Kaffee kochen; - )

  • Summary: Den medföljande programvaran är _riktigt_ dålig. Byt ut den till Swisscenter så fungerar den mycket bättre. De långsamma menyerna kommer man dock inte ifrån... Med tanke på att den var en av de första i sitt slag på marknaden har den stått sig förvånadsvärt bra!

  • Summary: Suger. Köp en begagnad Showcenter 1000g istället. I HD läge funkar Divx men MPEG2 är förvrängd. Synd att Pinnacle skiter i att fixar detta.
