I am considering a replacement for my Linksys WMC Extenders. They are excellent for music and photos, however I can’t stream video with them and this is becoming restrictive around the house for the kids.
I like the WDTV but I have never seen it in action. I need to know that it would perform as good as (or better than) my WMC Extenders for music and photos but I have a few other questions if I may:
Can I stream and play all of my films which I currently have ripped and saved as ISO files (without having to do any conversion)?
What is the interface like? Is there any noticeable lag? I will be using a wired connection and with my WMC Extenders the interface is quite quick with my 13,000 or so tunes.
Does the remote work even if not pointed straight at the unit?
Can I run the WDTV box streaming files directly from a NAS box? At the moment, using my WMC Extenders, I have to have the main PC switched on which is a bit of a pain.
Any feedback on the Android App as a remote control would be useful.
Any other points to convince me to get one (or not!) would be helpful.
