Pros: I have four of these Echos and a Ceton 6 tuner box hanging on the network connected to my main Media Center server. They work extremely well with a few exceptions (see Cons.) I am very satisfied with them. A perfect solution over renting cable company boxes since Charter Cable now requires a set top box for every TV. Plays live and recorded TV without problems.
Cons: Slower than Silicon Dust when it comes to changing channels, but its speed is acceptable. They will occasionally get stuck searching for tuners, but restarting them will get you going again. Boot time is a little slow, so turn them on a minute or two before the show you want to watch begins.
Other Thoughts: Some people find fault with the remote, but I think it's a sleek little unit. Difficult to use in the dark, but you can also use your standard WMC remote as well.
