In my last post, I mentioned my search for a home media device, but I didn't list my feature wishlist:
- 802.11g capability
- stream DiVX, MPEG, and quicktime video from any networked PC or mac
- stream MP3 (any encoding including variable bitrate), WMA, iTunes purchased AAC files, and streaming MP3/Realaudio from net radio stations
- streaming Slideshows of jpegs and tiffs from my PC and macs
- RCA connectors to home theater box, would be nice if it had S-video and digital audio as well
While continuing my search, I stumbled upon this comprehensive list of networked media devices at Designtechnica. Nothing quite fills out my wishlist, but it looks like the technology is catching up. The Joyport (at a pricey $699) does almost everything but 802.11g.
