The update is called My Media Hub, and will allow Fetch TV users to browse and play media content stored on compatible devices on their home computer network. A range of videos, music and photos are all supported, including MP3, WMA, WAV, MOV, MPG, AVI and more.

My Media Hub will also allow Fetch TV to play content via the USB port. Files can be accessed from a USB stick, external hard drive and even directly from a camera plugged in to the USB.

The update is free, and can be accessed from the Featured Apps menu. iiNet has produced two set-up guides for connecting USB devices and media servers, both of which are already available on its website.
