Netgear’s Digital Entertainer EVA2000 is perfect for those who don’t have a home theater PC or a networked console. The device will stream all of your PC media onto your TV. It connects to the TV via HDMI/composite and to your router via ethernet and it will stream a bunch of codecs from your PC or networked storage, as well as load media from a USB drive or stream YouTube from the web.
There is a catch of course. You need to purchase PlayOn for $40 if you want to stream video services like Hulu, Netflix and CBS from a computer. That takes the price from $150 for the Netgear Digital Entertainer up to $190.
