IOGEAR Wireless 5×2 HD Matrix review

on Monday, August 11th, 2014

We love our family room/den. It’s the place to be in our house probably because it’s a really comfortable room and most of our devices are in there: the Wii, the Chromecast, the Xbox, and our computer. One thing in particular that I have been wanting for a while is to be able to play ourRead More…

Kanex ATV Pro Adapter for Apple TV

on Wednesday, May 16th, 2012

Apple TVs are great – you can stream video from iTunes, Netflix, your home computer, and you can display content from your iPad to your TV using AirPlay and AirPlay Mirroring.  But Apple TVs have only HDMI output, so you can’t use it with every display.  The ATV Pro from Kanex is an HDMI toRead More…

on Tuesday, April 17th, 2012

With the MovieNite box from D-Link, you’ll be able to stream Netflix, Vudu, YouTube, and Pandora Radio content to your home TV setup.  Looking very much like a Roku and an Apple TV had a child, the MovieNite can deliver up to 1080p with 5.1 channel audio on the HDMI connection or 480i with 2-channelRead More…

Nyrius HD 1080p Digital Wireless Audio Video Sender Review

on Sunday, February 12th, 2012

I’ve been looking for some way to occasionally watch TV on my bedroom TV without the monthly expense of a cable hookup and digital settop box in there.  I’ve tried an antenna that worked great for local HD stations, and I’ve tried a wireless transmitter that worked great with my Blu-ray player but not withRead More…

Actiontec MyWirelessTV Multi-Room Wireless HD Video Kit Review

on Wednesday, January 11th, 2012

If you have a house with multiple TVs, you’re faced with providing content for each of them.  With my cable company, I have to pay for extra lines, plus an extra charge for a cable box and remote control for each line.  I’ll need to buy DVD players for each, too.  With the the MyWirelessTVRead More…

Monsoon Multimedia Vulkano Flow Review

on Friday, March 25th, 2011

The Monsoon Multimedia Vulkano Flow is the latest version of the Vulkano product line, and represents a simplification of the feature set to focus on “place shifting” (streaming) of live television while greatly simplifying the setup of the device and software. I reviewed a pre-release version of the Flow, so there may be very minorRead More…
