HD and RCA out.
Review of Netgear Model: EVA2000-100NAS
HD TV Media Player, YouTube, Movies and More.

Can read from locally networked computers and USB drives.


Setup is easy, picture quality is good for RCA and better in HD.

Fast menu and streaming.
Plays alot of video formats; wmv, mpeg, mov, Mp4 etc. But had a limit on quality. Tried to play Flip Video HD exported files and they won't play. Have to down convert the quality. AVI files may not play either.

Using tius device is a great alternative to setting up TV out for recording on a standard DVD recorder.

Need extra device from Netgear to connect wireless.
