Q) Can I connect a HTPC to a wireless network?
A) yes you can, however streaming quality may suffer. This will be most notable on higher quality and/or HD feeds. We do not include a wireless adapter by default.

    Ricardo, te aseguro que no ofrecemos pirateria. El unico contenido que esta en el sitio son los videos cortos de ejemplos de que puede ver con los sistemas. Tampoco ofrecimos enlaces a contenido. Me interesa saber donde viste el aviso. No lo veo por google, msn ni yahoo.

    Nuestros sistemas pueden ver mucho contenido de video por internet igual que su navegador. Algunas cosas legales y algunas cosas no legales. Nuestras sistemas no son mas pirateria que su navegador o Microsoft, o Compaq o Gateway.
