    Anyone here using one of these? Ive got a music one (MP101)connected to my amp upstairs. Im thinking of getting a media one for downstairs so i can connect it to the TV and amp down there. Can anyone recommend a good one? Im not bothered about wireless, as ive already got cabling going downstairs. Cheers.

    No mate, it connects to your pc either thru ethernet or wireless, it then allows you to stream music, vids etc to your tv. I was thinking of getting either the netgear EVA700, or EVA8000, they both look good, there are plenty reviews if ya wanna look.
