Sonicblue’s DVD player will be able to connect to networks via an Ethernet connection. Consumers will be able to purchase 802.11b PC cards to connect the player to a PC using wireless networking. 802.11b, also known as Wi-Fi, is a technology that allows the creation of wireless networks with a radius of around 300 feet.
The Go-Video D2730 player’s software will let consumers view content on their television that’s stored on their PC using a remote control for navigation. The customer will be able to stream music files and other content on the DVD player.
I love Sonicblue’s determination to take content from one room and move it to another, I just wonder whether it’s worth the risk of purchase based on the lawsuits pending against them.
