Remote control for virtualized desktops

Review HTC’s DG H100 Media Link is handy little gadget that can connect any HDMI-equipped TV to a DLNA-enabled wireless home network, so you can stream audio and video content direct from your phone or PC to the big screen.

The Media Link is a very neat and sleek looking little rectangular metallic sliver measuring just 72 x 45 x 7mm. It’s very easy to set up too – just plug it into the mains, connect it using the supplied HDMI lead to your TV and it will configure itself automatically.

It sets up its own Wi-Fi network which you can log into from your phone or PC to stream your media to the TV. This however is where it gets a little more complicated.

Playback on TV is smooth, although navigation is somewhat laboured

If you’ve got an HTC phone with DLNA, all is well. Using an HTC Desire HD with Media Link proved to be a fairly painless process. You find the device in your Wi-Fi network list, connect to it, and then access Connected Media in the menu. You’ll then get a full list of all your music, pics and videos, any of which can be transferred to the TV with just a few seconds delay.
