Packard Bell Medi@ TV 2

Here's an interesting gadget (with a silly name!) - the documentation is (as ever) full of how it will revolutionise you digital lifestyle yada yada, but what it is (I discovered after trawling the manual) is a remote network display for Windows Media player - if the clip will play on the PC their software runs Media Player silently and re-directs the output to the gadget over ethernet. For less that fifty quid I may give it a go - if the SVideo o/p is good it might be a nice front-end for MediaPortal. It handles tunes, movies and still photos with a very nice interface on the TV.
