Nixeus Fusion XS Preview

Our friends at Anandtech recently posted a preview of the Nixeus Fusion XL. I’m not usually one to get too excited about a launch preview put together with an engineering sample, but this time was a bit different. The Nixeus Fusion XL is the first product to bring together two of the more interesting stories to come out of this […]

TViX Slim S1 Review

The TViX line of media streamers from DViCO has never made a big splash in the U.S., but they have managed to cultivate a dedicated following in the European and Asian markets, particularly for their DVB-T tuner-equipped PVR models.  The company’s newest streamer-only model, the TViX Slim S1, has been put through its paces by our friends over at Anandtech.  The TViX line has often been […]

Nixeus is a relatively new entry to the media player space–reminder, if you haven’t checked out our Media Player Comparison Guide but you’re in the market for one, you should read that first.

Xtreamer Pro Review


Here’s another great review by our friend Damian, this time he covers the Xtreamer Pro (and somewhat the Xtreamer).

Don’t forget, if you’re in the market or curious about these devices, we have our Media Player Comparison Guide for your reading pleasure. Changes are more than minorly cosmetic, as the Playon!HD2, on top […]

WD TV Live Hub Reviewed

Keeping our tradition of trying to cover as much about media players and extenders (refer to our Buyer’s Guide, ahem), here’s a closer look at the WDTV Live Hub from fellow Media Center Connected Home MVP (i know that’s not the right title :-P) Barb Bowman, who seems genuinley impressed with the networking capabilities from WD.

Netflix Player Comparison

As you know by now, we’re big fans of Comparison Guides for Media Extenders. But if you’re only concern is Netflix capabilities, then something a bit more focused and in-depth is what you’re probably looking for, and you’re in luck! With the exception of TiVo, each platform gives you the ability to browse the Netflix catalog. All of the platforms […]
