Will these meet my needs?


I’ve been reading about this product for a little while now and it sounds great!  But when something is too go to be true it often isn’t true :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

What I have is a HTPC with many avi and MKV containered videos/movies.   I’d like to use this device to play the media from the HTPC over the network onto a TV in the bedroom.

My questions:

Is the 100mbit network connection going to allow enough bandwidth to play 1080P MKVs?  Or does this product use a sort of streaming or caching system.

Is the Audio only availible through the SPDIF connection or will it go through the HDMI cable?

Anything else I should know?
