Not a bad idea

It's actually not a bad idea, do away with the poor reliability of wifi. Just copy a Divx movie to the device then watch on the TV, no wires, no mess, no choppy playback. A simple and cheap solution for somebody who occasionally wants to watch Divx on different TV's around the house, a pretty good stop gap until everybody has Ethernet throughout their houses.

very similar in concept to the Archos with DVR station and given the archos added capabilities I would go for it.

Or...

something like the Aqua Multimedia Player serves the same purpose and also works as a bog standard USB drive. It's normally sold as enclosure only, so ideal if you have an old IDE drive sitting around on a shelf.

Compare to the right thing

This is not to be compared to the AppleTV : this is a wonna-be rival to iPod Mini (you know that the newest iPod Mini can be hooked up to a TV).

And as such it lacks the screen of the iPod Mini. At the same price. Kindof doesn't make sense.

WTF?

Why the hell would anybody spend money on this type of tosh, when you can buy a media PC for £250-300 which you can connect directly to your TV and Network!
