Yeah, I'm thinking of getting the Netgear EVA8000, unless my sister decides to buy an Apple TV (which I'm hoping she waits for firmware updates first).

That's pretty nice, for our music downstairs, we have a spare laptop connected to the TV + Stereo System, we use the TV as a monitor, then just use a wireless keyboard and mouse, shut the laptop lid, hide it, perfect!

That looks sweet, currently I just use a modded xbox, but its a nightmare to stream stuff directly from the internet, and it would be handy to get the footy games.

You have to love the fact that the cost of electronics is dropping in price, when companies compete the consumer wins..
