I want one for my mum. She likes discs and doesn't much care for burning them or ripping them.

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"
