Digital Media Receiver for WHS? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Does anyone know what digital media receivers are compatible with WHS for streaming video? I can stream Divx movies with my xbox360 but i'm looking for a dedicated machine.

     

    Ideally I don't want to have to run to run Nero or another media server.

  • Any receiver that supports Windows Media Connect 2.0.

     

    There is a list on the MS website for WMC - I just cant remember the link off the top of my head.

  • Thanks for the link.  The page states that all the devices require or work with WMP11.  I would specifically like to use the media sharing option from the home server console rather than having to install WMP11.

     

    I am not sure if there is a difference between enabling media shaing in the WHS console and media sharing in WMP11.

  • Like I mentioned in my earlier post, as long as the device supports Windows Media Connect 2.0 you can stream from WHS to it.
