Will D-link update the 750 to support Active TV
« on: May 11, 2008, 08:24:09 AM »

I must say I once again feel the need to express my disappointed with the DSM-750...

I specifically purchased the 750 for use with Internet TV of some sort...
Surely D-link, like the rest of us, has been let down by the promise of MS Internet TV which apparently has dispersed into cyberspace as if it never existed at all .

Does D-Link Intend to update the 750's firmware to support Active TV and AMD Live as originally planned or does the commitment to M$ prevent that.
 
I need to make a decision soon whether to keep or return the DSM-750. I do hope someone responds..

I do not know of any plans for ActiveTV support on the DSM-750 at this time. I have not seen any documentation stating that ActiveTV will be supported on this device. However using Windows Media Center and the DSM-750 as an extender when you goto online content and access the online channels offers you a very similar experience and many of the same channel of online content.

Hmmm.  Since Active TV is going to support Netflix instant watching, it looks like the 520 is the better bargain.

Have imported this device to Norway - is this online content also available for users outside of US? I have not seen anything like this on my device this far ...

Do you have online content on you Media Center PC? That is the content you will have available.
