If you don't have the ViiV logo on it... then yes, it is not a ViiV PC.tfederov said:So let me get this straight... Viiv is hardware and the PC I bought less than a month ago is no good? Or will it work and be unsupported?
Wireless bridge.packfan909 said:Not sure if this was on a prior thread...
Will the USB port allow for a Wireless Adapter or will one need to acquire a Wireless Bridge if there is no hard wired lan cable going to their HR20?
I am not the biggest fan of Gateway, but...premio said:ViiV's technical details are horrible, I think on purpose to force you to buy an expensive box. You can buy a ViiV motherboard/CPU combo in a build your own scenerio. It is essentially the same thing as when AMD branded 3dNow and Intel MMX to boost performance. There is a hardware component that is needed for the software to make the appropriate calls.
FYI:Meklos said:Just as an FYI to everyone out there... look around before you go out and drop $250 on a wireless bridging solution, or even $100 on the "game adapters".
I picked up two Airlink AP411Ws for $20 each at Frys in Houston when they were on sale (there have been new APs to come out since I did it). They can do point-to-point and point-to-multipoint bridging. Also you can get several different types of AP hardware and increase their functionality by running OpenWRT software on it. It takes a little doing, but you can take cheap hardware, change the firmware, and enable features of units costing much more.
Part of the ViiV features, is to allow your HR20 to connect to YOUR PC, and display those pictures you downloaded (from where ever), on your TV.bret4 said:I don't get it. Why would I want to do this on my TV when I can already download music and photos on the internet? Never heard of VIIV before this thread. Can you do more with it than just photos and music?
I wish they would just spend more time fixing bugs.
Define "Big Bucks".....Sixto said:So to be able to show photos on TV thru the HR20, you're going to need a Windows Media Center Edition (MCE) PC with Viiv? Wow ... big bucks.
Yes, it would "high cost" for little return in your scenerio.grooves12 said:$600 IS big bucks JUST to view photos, when the same functionality could be had for free if implemented properly.
I am still working on getting the link for the 1.5 download.monkeydrum said:Does anyone have the Viiv 1.50(??) installer available for download? Currently have 1.0(something) and only can find 1.52 on the intel site. Downloaded and tried to install but received message that 1.50 has to be installed first.
Thanks in advance guys...
