Western Digital TV Live Hub Review
You would be hard pressed to find a company that's consistently rolling out positive hardware revisions of its media players more than Western Digital.  Earlier this year, we took a look at the WD TV Live Media Player that added Netflix streaming into their hardware model.  But that player, and every player previous to it, lacked any type of internal storage to save all of your content rather than streaming it off your home network.  It always seemed odd that a hard drive manufacturer didn't delve into providing central storage for all your downloaded content.  Enter the Western Digital TV Live Hub.  Not only does it include a 1 Terabyte hard drive to store content, the WD TV Live Hub player has been upgraded to take advantage of HDMI 1.4, received an updated UI, can be used as a media ...

Apple TV Review (2010)
While Apple dominated in the mobile market and is thriving with their line of laptops, they have never been able to grasp the home theater crowd with their video solutions, namely the first two revisions of the Apple TV (reviews here and here). Over three years from the release of the original Apple TV, Apple announced a new version of the Apple TV in combination with revisions of the iPod Touch and iPod Nano lines.  This smaller, sleeker version of the Apple TV was priced considerably less than the MSRP of the original unit and the technology has changed dramatically.  Along with the announcement of the Apple TV, Steve Jobs and company are taking a hard stance on standard pricing for content, very similar to their pricing decisions with music over iTunes.  Television HD content is priced at 99 cents ...

Nixeus Fusion HD 1080p Media Player Review
It's just about impossible to find a digital media player that does everything, but if you look hard enough you'll find one that does everything you need.  The Fusion HD from Nixeus won't satisfy those looking for a Boxee Box like device – it's not built around streaming.  If you're looking for something that will handle your digital media collection with ease though, you'll find it in the Fusion HD.You may be surprised at the size of the Fusion HD when you pull it out of the box.  It's eight inches long, four and a half inches deep and two inches high, making it compact but surprisingly tall for a device of its kind.  That extra inch of height is there for a good reason though.  It gives you a much needed space to add an internal hard drive, rather ...

WD TV Live HD Media Player Review
In the current age of media consumption, movies and television are being utilized in vastly different methods than five years ago.  Nothing is more of a testament to the changes in how consumers are viewing their media than Western Digital’s TV Live HD Media Player.  Improving on their first player (the WD TV Digital Media Player), the new TV Live builds on the strong file support of the first model and adds a variety of networking improvements.When unpacking the unit, you will notice the small form factor of the TV Live is fairly identical to the previous model.  It also feels a touch lighter than the last one.  Different from the previous model, you won’t find composite red/yellow/white RCA jacks to output the audio and video, but you can still output to that format with the mini-jack output.  You will ...

Yamaha YMC-500 neoHD Media Controller Review
I think there will come a time at Halloween when I could hand out the remote controls scattered about my house along with candy corn and gum, and satisfy the string of trick-or-treaters that canvass my neighborhood. Honestly, in each room where I listen to music, watch TV or movies I have a minimum of six remotes. It gets tricky, particularly for a reviewer, when one remote will turn on an unwanted component during use of another. I'm not lazy, but it's maddening to leave the chair to turn off a piece of equipment you didn't want to engage in the first place. The universal remote is not a new idea, but most are far more complicated than the originals they intend to replace. If I have a choice between spending an evening listening to music, watching a DVD or ...
