Ease of Use

When I read the description of this device, I decided I had to check it out. I had no compelling reason, other than it seemed to be able to do a number of things with video. It also looked like it could provide a mechanism to link my computer and the TV. My kids love the fact that it will record video directly to an iPod, as they have been bugging me for some time to convert some of their videos to a format they could watch at the gym. I have made a wireless connection between my existing network on a different floor of the house and the Neuros OSD by converting an older Linksys wireless router to DD-WRT firmware, and then setting it up to run as a wireless bridge. Works great as a way to stream video to the TV!

I wanted something TIVO like without the monthly fees and the Neuros seemed to fit the bill. Maybe not as handy as the TIVO and a little harder to schedule, but it works great! I use a USB harddrive for saving things which is working well and I'll be hooking it to my home network soon. I've also programmed its remote to control my VCR (where I get the TV signal), so now I can schedule by channel. This feature works very well. The YouTube feature is neat and I'm sure the open source community will be adding many more features as well. I also have an S-Video out on my PC, so I can digitize the output from the PC. This could be a great way to make tutorials and such. Overall, at times it can be a little quirky, but well worth the investment.

Nice and compact device

by Jeeth on 5/18/2008

I got this box two days back and was testing with all possible ways. I found that it is very easy to setup and people will love this who really know the power of Open source(Linux). I could easily install VNC server and could able to get the menu on laptop, there are many people contributing to this product, I hope soon we will find lot more application or plugins. Right now the only drawback is it records on FAT32 format and it is not possible to create more than 32 GB using this format, If you want to go for more than 32 GB then you need to format using some third party (open source) softwares but the disadvantage is the FAT32 is slow in copy/read files. I have not tried the network sharing, hope that will solve the FAT32 problem, I could found in forums that people are trying to build plugin to read ntfs partition. Overall, I really Love this small and cute box.

Not enough superlatives

I've given these out as gifts, and each time all those persons' friends and relatives end up buying one too. You won't remember how you got along without one. Unlike the previous review, I have not had a single problem with it, maybe he got a damaged unit or something. Also I called customer service for a minor question and got right through.
