Netgear EVA2000 Digital Entertainer Live
Released July, 2009
The Pros:Affordable price. Support for the vast majority of popular file formats. HDMI output.
The Cons:No open source audio format support (FLAC or OGG). Standard definition only. Not good value compared to similarly priced devices that can output 720p high definition.
The Netgear EVA2000 Digital Entertainer Live is a digital media streamer designed to handle almost any format thrown at it. It is in fact built to function wirelessly, but the purchase of an optional Netgear Wireless Adapter ($40.00) is necessary.

The EVA2000 is geared primarily towards households with an HDMI-compliant television, as the unit includes only an HDMI interface and lacks other connectivity options like S-Video, Component, etc. And even then, the HDMI is limited to only 480p, which at least makes it useful for streaming content from the Internet. Additional features include support for YouTube, pay-per-view CinemaNow movies, and VuNow/PlayOn; a new video search tool that can “locate videos on the entire worldwide web”; and an included remote.
