Hauppauge HD PVR Review
The way that we save, catalog and digest television, movies or other forms of media is vastly different than ten years ago, or just even five years ago.  DVR services like TiVo rose and fell in popularity over the years while the DVR technology made its way slowly into the home theater through cable boxes and satellite receivers.  Even for the more technically apt HTPC crowd, the number of DVR options in hardware and software has climbed dramatically.Enter the Hauppauge HD PVR set-top box.  This high-definition personal recorder has a fairly versatile design, allowing the consumer the ability to connect any high-definition source via component cables into the box and output that feed simultaneously to your HDTV / Projector and your home PC.  There’s no hard drive inside the PVR, hence you have to connect it to a PC to ...

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 ...

Olive Opus No4 Music Server Review
Back in 1981 Sammy Hagar had a big radio hit, singing, “There's only one way to rock.” When it comes to setting up a digital music server, however, there's most definitely more than one way. There's hundreds of ways, but most of us want something simple. Digital audiophiles go to great lengths to turn laptops or old towers into music servers, running them through digital-to-analog converters to boost the sound and then using any number of ways to stream the music to an audio system. The drawback of such an approach means that you have an extra computer, and that it always has to be turned on, and so on.  A better solution, in my mind, is to bring all aspects of computer audio together into a single server, player and streamer. And that's just what the Olive Opus 4 ...
