Thumbs up Netgear Neotv550 Breakthrough of hope!

I've had some success with my neo550. The software Playon and Neo550 actually works together to bring live streams to your tv.But you''ll have subscribe to some network channels to view them .Good luck guys. Watching Criminal Minds right now!

Do you mind explaining a little more how you made Playon work for the NTV550? I'm a little confused here after reading instructions on their web page..

I'll give my Netgear 550 and PlayOn TV a spin this weekend and let you know. PlayOn runs on your computer and allows any media player that supports UPnP to stream content.

I've used PlayOn with my Western Digital and Dune without a problem. Most of the content I've tried is not HD. I purchased the software to stream sports that weren't available via local programming.

If you like old TV shows, you will find just about everything out there. It can be nice not having to store old shows on your NAS when you can just stream them from say the CBS servers.

I haven't tried it with my 550 but I'll give it whirl and let you all know how it worked out.

Cheers,

Unless they've added HD support since last I used PlayOn, they output in SD quality. Of course since most of the videos were old tv series, I wasn't expecting HD.

As an updated FYI: I tested PlayOn again with my NTV550 over the weekend, and the NTV550 still works with PlayOn.

Dogbert, it's always worked with the neo and 9150. Only problems I've ever had always turned out to be due to PlayOn, and some of it's addons.

Jamesmor I think was talking about the NTV550, which was a bit more finicky on the UPNP than the EVA9150. But it's good to have confirmation that it still works on the EVA9150 as well.

I also agree that pretty much any problems I've had with PlayOn have been on the PlayOn software side, or where the video stream was coming from.

My experience is the reverse. My EVA only works with PlayOn, my NTV550 works with several other dlna servers.
