XStreamHD starts pumping out media boxes in preparation for 2010 launch


I know it seems like we’ve slowed down on the number of Extender-type devices out there, but it looks like it’s really going to pick up around CES time. The XStreamerHD looks pretty awesome, and I read in their forums that a new version of their software in February will even support ripped Blu-rays (not just ISOs)….impressive.



That may be about to change, as the company announced it has selected a manufacturing partner, Jabil Circuit and begun production of the HD Media Server, receiver and PRO Media Receiver hardware. Clearly the ’08 fourth quarter launch didn’t come to be, with actual hardware in tow, we’ll see if the other claims (expandable to 3TB of storage, 1080p Movies with 7.1 lossless audio, DLNA access across the network, VOIP, ATSC tuners and DVR with a $399 price) make it to reality.
