Neutrino’ed

I even got interested in a D-Box before I read Kris’s post, but at 39,79 Euros including a one year subscription for digital TV, I couldn’t resist.

Before I have even watched a single movie on the box, I put Neutrino on it, in about an hour’s work.

I *love* that beast – I haven’t even connected cable yet, but the box is wired to my WiFi access point and happyly streams MP3s and Shoutcast streams into my living room – wonderful.

Next thing to try out will be video streaming.

Oh, and don’t forget to cancel the subscriptions…

UPDATE: Streaming via VLC works. It ain’t HDTV, but it’s a lot better than burning CDs. And I haven’t even begun fiddling with the settings….

Neutrino team: YOU RULE!!

    My box is wified, too, but is currently using 11 MBit/sec 802.11b. Using that, I get approx. 600 kb/sec in download from the box, but streaming video with vlc upwards gets difficult 1000 kbit/sec bitrate. Using a cable, I can get 2000-4000 kbit/sec.

    What kind of AP are you using, and which streaming bitrates can you achieve?
