Gateway's ADC-320 Connected DVD Player can take almost any music, movie, or image file on your network and stream it to your TV and home theater. It can play almost any traditional optical media format available as well. The device, and its supporting software, is easy to set up and easy to use. With analog and digital outputs, and a progressive scan DVD player, your other components could be the weak link as your media will look and sound as good as the rest of your equipment can handle.
If you're planning on buying a progressive scan DVD player, you might want to look at the Gateway ADC-320 first. For only about $50 more than other DVD players, you can add the wired or wireless network connectivity and play all of the media files on your network.
What the ADC-320 needs, however, is a full-body makeover so that it will actually look as good as the image it outputs on your television. That, along with a few refinements and updates, will make this a device that Gateway's competitors will want to emulate.
