I don't buy it. having to buy a media server isn't going to be as simple as already having your computers in your house [which are already set up], stream media you already have to your tv.

iTV will be easy. media servers aren't for the average computer users. they take a little bit more know how. plus this SoC Tv's require you to buy a new tv and a media server.

my heart is already set on iTV. plus i live with 6 people in a college house. next year it'll be 8. plug an iTV into the living room and that means, 30,000 songs and all the videos everyone already has and it's all set up when i plug in iTV.

media server + new tv. no thanks.
