The next feature is the pictures option. It allows you to show photos, which is a great option if you have company over and you want to embarass your own children with kid photos on the TV.
I just shared the sample Windows XP wallpaper files as an example. The neat thing is that it turns your photos, if you have more than one, into a slide show.
The last option on the Media Player is the ability to surf the web. I noticed that most of the time, these sites are stretched out as the TV is basically outputting a 640X480 res, while most sites are much larger than that. So instead I went and surfed around news sites.
The text is actually not that hard to read from far away.
I tried the Actiontec link, but I got a 404 error, oops?
Overall, the Actiontec Wireless Digital Media Player is useful if you are either cramped for space or cramped for cash. Through the 802.11b wireless card that is included, it does a pretty good job streaming video and audio without any break up or dropped frames. The menu does require a bit of getting used to, but after a while it should be easy to navigate.
I tried playing quite a few DivX/XviD movies and they all played flawlessly. There is an update feature on the box which I believe is used to update any codec issues that may arise in the future. Rather useful to keep this box up to date with the latest.
The only downfall I think is that you have to set up a host computer with the Media Buddy software to share you files. It may have been easier to have the ability to do that within the player. The only reason that may be easier is if you live in a large house and the host computer is in another section of the house. Lazy? yes, but aren't we all? :)
