TV: 10 year old 29" RCA ColorTrak Plus PiP
Audio/Video: Connected via yellow RCA composite video jack and red/white RCA stereo jacks; audio is piped out to a Sharp mini system I bought with the TV
Router: Netgear WGR614 v5
Wireless LAN: Stock Patriot USB G adapter; throughput is generally ~10 Mbps
Wired LAN: Not used right now for the PBO's purposes
HDD: None in PBO right now
Remote File Access: 3 laptops running XP SP2 [NetBIOS filesharing enabled via Control Panel/Network Setup Wizard], all in "WORKGROUP" workgroup; 4 drives in firewire enclosures and 3 more drives internal to each laptop; can't get the PBO to see my ancient Win 95 box no matter what, which has some good ole vids on it
TV: Panasonic PT43LC14 (HDMI from receiver) 1080i
Audio Receiver: Denon 3808
Router: Dlink DIR-625
Wireless LAN: not using for the PBO
Wired LAN:Buffalo Air Station (acts a hub as well for wired DNS-323 & PBO)
HDD: internal toshiba 70gb: external usb seagate 320 gb (temporary)
Remote File Access: Dlink DNS 323
upnp: Dlink dns 323 with Twonky Media 4.11
Remote: Default (interferes with oppo 980)
PBO will access media from DNS-323 either thru upnp or networked drive and is connected to Denon 3808 with HDMI
everything works as expected
Working on Toshiba 37AV502U
TV: Toshiba 37AV502U Firmware rev 1.0
Router: Linksys WRT54GL with Tomato firmware
Wireless LAN: PBO Wireless G attached using USB extension cable to a Linksys WRT54GL running tomato firmware
HDD: Seagate Momentus 2.5" 250GB 5400rpm 8MB SATA (HD-NB-ST9250315AS)
Remote File Access: Good for SD Video. Still adjusting settings to try to get stable 720p playback.
Time Used: 1 Week
Remote Control: Logitech Harmony 620
Despite troubles posted with this line of Toshiba TV's (specifically the 32AV502U), I had no problems connecting via HDMI - with audio, but I did use a gold-plated ferrite-cored cable (from Monoprioce.com)
I have no "loud fan" issues, either, but the box can be heard 15' across the room when the show is silent. It's tollerable. No worse than my Wii.
Wi-Fi using TVersity and UPnP as well as Network shared Drobo Drive (NOT NAS). Wireless streaming of SD works very well and I've streamed some 720P with limited success, but I'll use my HDD for HD video. No format problems yet (i.e. plays MKV's, ISO's, MP3's, JPG's from the hard drive just fine).
I'm also still using the ES-51-283G-PCMPBO25-P01 firmware. I'll update this post as I learn more.

Panasonic 42" plasma
SLS audio receiver
Linksys WRT54G rev8
G Wireless LAN-Patriot USB wifi adapter would not work on the lan even with no security in place.
Wired LAN 100Mbs from router to PBO
250 GB Internal HD on PBO multiple HDD on network 1 portable 750GB HDD all work with no issue.
I can pull or push files across the network up to 50 Mbs.
Streaming HD can require 75Mbs (GI Joe Blue ray) and only works reliably using UPNP. I'm using TVersity as the server and not transcoding as the PBO can handle any file type I've given it.
ISO's, DVD copies, AVI, MKV, WMV. Full access to all audio channels and subtitiles when present.
PBO is outputting stereo to the TV and digital RAW audio to the Receiver via optical connection. Receiver is able to decode 6 channel into 5.1 surround and two channel dolby.
Have played movies via USB from both a 5.5 inch portable drive (externally powered) as well as a WD Passport which is powered off the USB.
a work in progress no doubt
TV: SAMSUNG 42" 720p Plasma HDTV Model No: PN42B450
Windows Vista Ultimate desktop PC
Audio Receiver: Denon AVR590 w Klipsch Quintet 5.1 speakers & subwoofer
PBO connected via HDMI to the receiver then HDMI from the receiver to the TV
Internal Drive: HDD: HITACHI Travelstar 7K250
Router: Netgear WNDR3700
I now use a 65 foot Cat6 cable via 10/100/1000 LAN.
TeraCopy indicates file transfer speeds of 5-6MB/s. I am able to stream 720p content.
Wireless Adapter: Zonet ZEW2546 wireless N dongle
The PBO supports wireless N dongles. You must use a dongle with a compatible Realtek (RTL8191SU in this case) chip.
I re-checked the specs: Provides max. 300Mbps receiving rate and 150Mbps sending rate. Frequency Band: 2.412GHz - 2.4835GHz.
So I am was not taking advantage of the 5GHz channel with this dongle.
Tera Copy indicated file transfer speeds of 3-4MB/s mostly showing 3.8MB/s
HD content would not play from the computer without skipping and stuttering.
Difference a higher end router made for me...
Netgear WNDR3700 - In WPA2 PERSONAL AES the PBO (which I already had turned on) connected automatically once I entered my SSID and passkey in the router WAN setup. This was awesome. The "network" on my PC INSTANTLY popped up my PC and PBO. This took forever to seek devices before. With my previous POS Lynksis WRT120"N" I had to turn on the PBO, restart the router, restart the PBO before it would connect.
