    Converting an avi took forever, but then I realized I'd need to buy 500 wiipoints to get the internet channel. Is the streaming smooth? Just wondering if this is a worthwhile app. cheers.

    I too am looking for a review.

    I have elgato so I have all my tv shows on my imac. But since I already have a wii I was wondering if I could get away with using that instead of buying an apple tv

    Well, I broke down and got it. It works as advertised, however it is no match for AppleTV. MP3 Sound quality is poor and avi streaming requires time consuming 'conversion', and even at the highest quality setting the resulting suffers from pixelitis. Cool app though, and I'm certain that future versions can take better advantage of the Wii's wifi capabilities.
