I already have a BeyyonWiz DP-S1 unit at home, and would like to play its recorded content on another TV.
Will the newly released WizOTT device play this for me? Is there an easy way to make the WizOTT wireless?
If not, which Beyonwiz product would be best for this application?

In theory, it would be possible to either get an updated firmware that supports streaming from a Beyonwiz PVR or an enterprising third party developer could provide an Android app for the WizOTT that enables this.

DP-H1 is the cheapest at $149. If you add a USB HDD you can also use it to record.
Ok - What is your recommendation to make any of the above BeyonWiz units wireless? Would the DP-H1 accept a USB based wireless dongle and still work on my network?

I'm pretty sure you can't use a generic dongle with BW PVRs. I've had success using wireless ethernet bridges - multiport models can be had for <$100 nowadays.
The fact that WizOTT doesn't play seamlessly with other BW equipment is a real disappointment.

I use an Apple Airport Express - but any wireless N bridge should give pretty good results (depending on interference, the number of other wireless networks in the houses nearby and the load on your LAN).
