also, can this be used with wifi? some reviews say yes, some say no and I'm confused.
and anyone have peanut-butter jelly time experience with these?
[EDIT:] how does M A C translate to peanut butter and jelly time?
Channels would vary by provider. Specifically, there are two pre-reqs for this to be useful (on a traditional cable network, at least. Too lazy to research FiOS/Satellite, though I'm pretty sure it'd be even less useful with those services.)
1: You can't have switched digital video. How do I know if I have switched digital video, you ask? Are you required to have a cable box, even if you only subscribe to basic cable? Then you would probably get only a handful of channels (think over-the-air, at best.)
2: Does your provider encrypt their channels? This one is harder to determine until you actually hook it up. Although, a good test is if you already have a digital tuner (like the one that normally is already in an HDTV) - whatever you get on your HDTV is what you'll get on this thing. (edit: This also tells you what channels you'd receive if you do live in an area with switched digital video)
As for the WiFi question...I can't see why it wouldn't work. As long as you don't have some absurdly funky network setup, this shouldn't be a problem.
