I have older Netgear Powerline devices (claim up to 200, usually see about 60) but the issue is that I don't have room behind the wall-mounted TVs for the size of those devices. In our master bedroom, I have one of the lowest profile wall mounts that Monoprice sells and I can barely fit the power cord for the Minix Neo X8-H back there!

I installed recessed outlets, and the wall mount I used can be flused or  extended

Please do yourself, and your neighbors a favor, and avoid Broadband Powerline devices if at all possible. They do terrible, terrible things to other users of the radio spectrum.

Fortunately, they aren't too popular these days, largley because of these issues, and because regular old 802.11 b/g/a/ac are much easier to implement.


To original topic, my wife loves Chromecast.  AppleTV is pretty slick too.  Either will work well for Netflix.... but Roku probably gives you more flexibility for tasks other than simple streaming.  I would not recommend chrome cast if you don't have android phones.

This has got me excited: http://www.minix.us/products/NEOZ64W.html

I think I'll wait until Win10 actually comes out and maybe the 2nd version of this box as well (hopefully with more RAM, I'd like to see at least 4, but preferably 8), also USB 3.0 and/or USB-C would be nice!

Not sure, but I'm itching to get one to use as a back/front end for a PVR. I have an HDHomerun Dual (networked 2x digital ATSC tuner) so I can record on 2 devices at once (TV in living room, TV in master bedroom) while still watching TV on the actual TV (via coax). I just plan on using Windows Media Center on both boxes since I record TV as well as play movies from my Zyxel NSA320. Best of all worlds in my opinion.
