Acer will release its HD-capable DLNA media streaming box later this month.

360 / PS3 can do most of this?!
Most readers of El Reg will already have a 360 or a PS3 which can do most of this media streaming malarky anyway. Besides, if I was going to have another device under my TV I'd rather spend anoher £80 and get a Revo 3610 to have full PC functionallity with my TV.
"Most reg readers"
sadly does not include the demographic known as "My mum". A console will not be happening.
