Linksys home streamer
Devices that stream audio and image files from your PC to your TV/home entertainment system are coming thick and fast. The latest to join Philips, Sony, Kiss Technology et al is the Linksys’ Wireless-B Media Adapter (WMA11B) which goes on sale in the UK this week for around £160.
The device connects to a TV and hi-fi using S-video or conventional AV cables. It then accesses files on the PC via either a wireless 802.11b network, or using Ethernet cabling.
Annoyingly it doesn’t stream Internet content, however users can create playlists of MP3s or fashion a slide show of images, which can be controlled via its accompanying handset.
We’ll hope fully be giving it a try very soon.
