Transgear DVX-700 Type II

Transgear has revealed its DVX-700 Type II media hub, which it says is one of the most connected network media hubs available. The device is one of the few to directly integrate web videos, searching for (using a USB keyboard) and playing Google Video clips directly on a TV. Owners can also play and record DVDs -- including the raw VIDEO_TS folders, Transgear adds. The 3.5-inch drive bay at the front is also designed to transfer content even without a network: desktop hard drives can easily slide out of the hub to connect to a PC through a USB 2.0 enclosure. DVI and D4 outputs connect the receiver to TVs as well as computer displays.

Differences in models are split along networking choices, Transgear says: the base M10 uses Ethernet alone for networking, while the M20 adds an 802.11g Wi-Fi adapter. Eitehr version should be available today at $238 for the M10 and $264 for the premium M20.
