    Another option is to use a splitter near one of the HD DVRs and add the broadband adapter there using the existing Ethernet cable. Drilling holes is not necessary, recommended or even desirable.

    Hate to break it to you, but media share still sucks at this point. 3rd party server apps help a little, but resolution is very low (480 or worse to my eyes). Not many video formats work either. It's not bad for streaming music though. Get a PC or dedicated streaming box and you'll be much happier. My blu-ray player does a fantastic job with pictures and video at full 1080p. I read a lot about people having great success with playon and tversity, so I gave it another shot a few days ago. I have to say response is very fast, but PQ is still awful. Not worth it when dedicated hardware works so much better and is essentially free.

    Playon Mediashare does run @ 480p - 16x9(regardless of what the original file rez is), and if the originating file is HD it takes a while to load, otherwise It freezes occasionally. As a workaround, when I first load the vid file i hit pause for a minute or 2 & let it get going, then resume playback and it doesn't freeze thereafter(usually). Yes, I agree this could be better.
