    I think I may have found a new toy for my home network. :cool:

    Was wondering if anyone out there has this and if your happy with it. My main concern is the quality...or loss of it in the output of my home stereo!

    I read about the Linksys unit, and it got generally poor reviews. I ended up picking up a Mediagate MG-35 which does video, audio, and pictures. I had to search around a bit for the drivers to access it on the network, but it's pretty slick now. :)

    Thanks Johnwill...definitely more elaborate and functional. More expensive, but does a lot more than just the digital audio.

    Curious to know about the drivers you referred to. Did it not come with software/drivers to do that?

    Again...Thanks!

    I'm referring to the NDAS drivers to access it as a disk drive on the network. You have to buy a $20 key to use the drivers, but it took some fooling around to find the drivers and the key. They did not come with it, apparently the manufacturer is really only supporting the NDAS in Korea so far. They're also coming out with an enhanced model, which I think is the one that will offer that capability in the US. However, I'll stick with this one for now...

    All's well that ends well. My only complaint is that the NDAS access is kinda' slow, about 1.5mbyte/sec transfer rates. If I want to move any significant amount of data to the device, I just set one of my spare systems to the task and go about my business. :) I picked up my MediaGate MG-35 for $199 packaged with an 80gig drive. I actually ended up putting a 200gig drive into it and using the 80gig elsewhere, since I wanted more local storage on it.
