Old but reliable, SwissCenter breathes new life into it

RyanUK, Dooyoo
8 June 2010
  • 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 Admittedly, it has now been replaced by a PS3 for streaming purposes, but sometimes I still prefer the ShowCenter for some of its features that the PS3 lacks (such as film and TV information*).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: So like the title says, you can stream your audio, video and pictures from your computers hard drive to your tv via the showcenter 200 So maybe we should start with some specifications, features, opinions etc. For a start lets begin with supported file types and so on, first off we have audio... the file types that are supported for audio are all the major formats like MP3, MPEG-1 layer 2 (MPA), PCM WAV and WMA.
  • Pros: stream your computers media to your tv
  • Cons: quality of wi - fi, setup can be tricky

Showcenter wireless

  • Excerpt: Start over again, hopefully this review will be better for you and 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.
  • Pros: Linking computer to tv and all in 1 music and video
  • Cons: Setup

  • 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: Jag har haft den i tre månader nu. Jag använder den nästan uteslutande till mp3. Installationen gick smärtfritt och funktionen är helt okey.

Multimedia mit begrenzter Reichweite

thBernhardt1701, Ciao

  • Excerpt: Wer sich seine Filme, Fotos oder Musik nicht extra auf DVD oder CD brennen will, sondern direkt am Fernseher anschauen möchte, benötigt ein sog. Multimedia Center oder Multimedia PC. Ich wollte dabei auch die lästige Netzwerkverkabelung verhindern und keinen extra PC am Fernseher aufstellen. Somit landete ich beim Pinnacle Showcenter 200. Das Showcenter ist denkbar einfach einzurichten. Man installiert die PC-Software und macht so seinen Heim-PC zum Streaming-Server.
  • Pros: Sehr gute Ausstattung, Super sicher
  • Cons: Schlechte Verbindung, PC - Software

  • Summary: Spelar det mesta, kanonbild. Lite störande att när man spelar Vob-filer så blir det ett kort stopp mellan delarna. Annars 2005 års bästa tekniska investering.
