Figure 1: What you get

The Play@TV comes in two versions: regular - which offers wired connectivity only; and a "premium" version which includes a Linksys WPC11 Version 3 802.11b wireless PCMCIA card for about $20 more. iCube also lists on its website about a half dozen other cards that can be used instead of the Linksys. The same page also has a list of wireless cards that can't be used with the Play@TV.

You'll find the following (Figure 1) in your Play@TV box :

  • A stand that enables you to mount it upright
  • Composite audio/video cables (an S-Video cable isn't included).
  • A short cross-over Ethernet cable - about the same length as a US dollar bill - a much longer straight-thru Ethernet cable and handy cable coupler for connecting the two
  • A two-pronged (no ground pin) switching 100V-240V power adapter
  • A remote control is slightly longer than the dollar bill (Figure 2), but is thinner width-wise. Batteries are included.

The remote is dollar-bill sized

All of the cable ports are on the back of the unit (Figure 3). Going from left to right, we first see the PCMCIA slot for the wireless card. Below the slot is the Ethernet port. Next is the SPDIF optical sound out. S-Video, Composite Audio/Video (yellow,red,white) and Component Video (green,blue,red) round out the rest of the ports.
