Neuros set top box with Wiimote

The Neuros set top box, called Link, is a disc-less computer running Ubuntu. Neuros encourages hacking and finding new ways to use the unit, as can be seen in their latest article explaining how to get a Wiimote to work with it. The results are pretty slick, as you can see in the video above. We can’t imagine trying to use the on screen keyboard with it, but it seems to work nice for basic navigation.

    So it is $250 without the wireless keyboard?

    That isn’t the worst I have ever seen, but are there independent reviews of it?

    that’s pretty slick. the wiimote movement seems surprisingly smooth and precise.

    what’s the deal w/ the neuros box, anybody know? do they have deals with the content providers or are they tapping into the pre-existing streams?

    Too bad this link thingy doesn’t seem to have composite video output like their older offering; it would be just the thing to put network-streamed series eps on my 25-inch TV. My 25-inch analog TV. I have a nice 25-inch analog TV in a room for which that’s a nice size, and I don’t feel like buying a HDTV for the hour or two per month of TV I watch. But it would be nice to move to net content on the old box now that the FCC has sold me out.

    @fractalrock: we stream directly from content providers (Hulu, CBS.com, etc.) and make use of standards for browsers (Adobe Flash, etc.).

    @neuros guy/gal: thanks for the response; I’ll keep you guys in mind…(I’m an IT consultant and sometimes get requests for something like this)

    @jsdf-

    Cool stuff. I haven’t seen any action lately on getting mythfrontend running on this machine. Any info?

    I did check http://forums.neurostechnology.com/ and of course, google, but didn’t find anything recent.

    That’s really cool. I’m going to have to try this out

    @dave,
    mythfrontend is installed by default on the LINK (though we are looking at moving to XBMC, as it serves as a better media player)
