Bring all your digital content from your PC and the Internet directly to your TV. Digital content is changing the way you get entertainment. You listen to music files and streaming audio, and watch video files and streaming video.

Move the digital experience from your computer to your TV
Bring all your digital content from your PC and the Internet directly to your TV. Digital content is changing the way you get entertainment. You often listen to music files and streaming audio, and watch video files and streaming video on your PC. However, now with the NETGEAR Digital Entertainer (EVA700), you can enjoy your digital videos, photos and music on your home entertainment system or TV. The NETGEAR Digital Entertainer makes it easy to seamlessly access thousands of digital media files from your computer for viewing and listening in the comfort of your family room.
Stream Videos, Music and Photos
The Digital Entertainer EVA700 connects your TV or home entertainment system to your home computer network to deliver a world of new media enjoyment. The EVA700 streams digital movies, videos, music, radio and photos from your PC and can access thousands of digital files stored in your NETGEAR Storage Central (SC101) device. You can also play streaming media content, such as music and video from the Internet, by connecting to your home network and router. You can even play files saved on a USB storage device such as an iPOD™, USB thumb drive, USB disk, and some digital cameras with a USB interface by simply connecting any of these to the front USB port of the Digital Entertainer.
New Technology Ready
The NETGEAR Digital Entertainer is Intel® Viiv™ verified, enabling you to take advantage of Intel’s new platform for digital entertainment. The Digital Entertainer EVA700 supports seamless access to content, applications and services available on Intel® Viiv™ technology-enabled PCs. It also supports access to content on Microsoft® Windows® Media Center PCs through Windows Media Connect, and other universal plug-and-play (UPnP AV) media servers, such as TwonkyVision. You can use the wired ethernet port to connect the EVA700 directly to your wired home network, or add the optional Powerline HD Ethernet Adapter Kit (HDXB101) for high quality video and maximum streaming speeds across multiple rooms with much better results than a standard 802.11g WiFi network.
Easy On-Screen Selection
The NETGEAR Digital Entertainer gives you easy, remote control access to access to digital media files on your home network, as well as from popular Internet sites without getting up from the couch. When combined with NETGEAR’s Powerline HD Ethernet Adapter (HDXB101 two-in-one kit and HDX101 standalone, both sold separately), you can use the Digital Entertainer in any room of your home, regardless of where the computer is located. You’ll enjoy excellent quality and stable, consistent video streaming that lets you watch videos for hours without problems.
Top Customer Reviews
It's a disaster, unstable and works intermittently with every media server I've tried (five and counting). Video and MP3 files which play flawlessly on any PC, lock up at varying points on the EVA700. NetGear support is non-existant and there's never been a firmware upgrade.
If you have any doubts, go to the NetGear official forum and check. There are very few happy customers of either the EVA700 or the EVA8000.
Wireless connection was woeful; wired would recognise my Internet connection but not my Windows Media Centre. Third Party servers such as Twonky had to be used which is ridiculous and they did not work reliably for me either. Interface when did work is ugly.
If you have Intel Viiv on your PC or Laptop you may fare better as I think this is what it is designed to work with but why Netgear have designed a media player with such limited hardware compatibility is beyond me.
In the end I purchased Apple TV as though that is limited to Mac it works and its interface is lovely!
You can also connect your iPods and MP3 Players to this Eva Unit via its USB slot but one of my iPods was not recognised, the other was but would display no content!
Hope you have a better experience with it than me - you may see my item on Amazon as I am selling it back!
Once working, i have found some of the videos over the lan as being a bit jerky on some videos, not major, but the keen eye will spot it.
Good idea, just needs better documentation
