Multimedia, AV Apple is working furiously to get their ITV product into market early next year. However, this type of product is not a new idea. There have been a number of similar remote multimedia products since 2003, most based off the Syabas software stack. Geeks.com were very generous sending us over ADS' MXL-581 Media-Link Entertainment Receiver for a review, a Syabas-based device that's using the uCOS-II real-time kernel (introduction [.pdf]). Check inside for our review and many screenshots of the system.

I read the review. I know you mentioned the DVI and component outputs (not inputs), which of course are capable of HD. That's why I thought it odd that you mentioned using s-video for HD, which won't work.

I'm interested in devices like this, and appreciate the time that you took to do the review. Because of that interest, I took the time to read the review closely. Closely enough to spot a minor error, one that I've had to explain to others under different circumstances. There are a surprising number of people watching SD on HDTVs because they used an s-video cable to connect to their cable box, and the manuals weren't clear that s-video is used only for SD. I thought OSnews readers might want to avoid that.

But I was wrong, as it seems that not hurting your feelings is more important than accurate information. I promise not to do it again.
