TV shows recorded from the users PC or stored on their network can also be played. Internet content like Flickr, Internet radio, YouTube and RSS feeds can also be accessed from this device.



Its integrated 500GB hard drive, which is user-upgradeable to larger capacity disks, makes the Digital Entertainer Elite the world's largest capacity home video jukebox on the market, according to NetGear. Consumers can play Blu-ray quality digital video up to 1080p, high-resolution digital photos, MP3s and recorded television shows from their PCs or storage on their network. They can also enjoy Internet content, such as YouTube, Internet radio, Flickr, RSS feeds and videos from websites.

"As the amount of digital media content available to consumers increases exponentially, so does the demand for the ultimate entertainment solution to bring that content to HDTVs," said David Henry, NetGear's senior director of Home/Consumer products. "People no longer want to be tied to their PCs to enjoy things like YouTube videos, Flickr photos or HD videos stored on their computers and storage devices. As the newest and most advanced solution in our family of Internet-connected set-top products, the Digital Entertainer Elite enables users to benefit from viewing the broadest spectrum of digital content on their HDTVs, in the comfort of their living rooms.

"For HD video streams, it's critical to have a high performance link between the content and the television. That's why NetGear also offers a full array of home networking solutions that complement the Digital Entertainer Elite, such as our RangeMax family of wireless-N routers, our Powerline and MoCA networking kits, and our award-winning family of ReadyNAS storage solutions." NetGear explained that the Digital Entertainer Elite is flexible in that it works simultaneously with Windows, Mac and Linux computers, and Network Attached Storage (NAS) devices. The Digital Entertainer Elite's two USB ports also enable instant access to content on a USB flash drive, digital camera, iPod or other USB storage device. Unlike other products on the market, the Digital Entertainer Elite does not require a UPNP server running on the various machines. Instead, searching and indexing is done directly on the device, enabling users to navigate content across multiple PCs and devices at the same time. In fact, the Digital Entertainer Elite automatically finds all digital media files on the home network and organizes them into an easily accessible library. Additionally, the Digital Entertainer Elite supports a wide variety of digital media file formats and codecs.

The device can easily be integrated with wireless networks through Netgear?s Push ?N? Connect feature without the need of a password. This media player is also dubbed as environmental-friendly as it incorporates energy-efficient power supply and auto-sleep mode. While in auto-sleep mode, the device consumes mere .01 watts of power.
