    Why not the aTV you might ask ...

    1) we don't have a HD tv
    2) i don't feel like paying 100$ or more for a convertor
    3) it doesn't support a whole lot of formats

    yes, i've tried an aTV and i don't like it. please don't try to convince me otherwise.


    but now I'm looking for alternatives ...
    the only thing i want to do is stream video from my MBP to my TV.

    what about a KiSS 1600?

    I'm not going to answer your question, but this stood out like a sore thumb. VisualHub is a payware converter, and costs $23. HandBrake is a converter and is FREE. MPEGStreamClip is a converter and is FREE.

    Don't know where you got your "$100 or more" - unless you aren't using U.S dollars. Unless you meant to put a € sign instead? If so, then it is only €16 for VisualHub, and again all the others are FREE.

    Where you got that figure from I have no idea..

    answer: Popcorn Hour

    You should check out popcorn hour; it plays EVERYTHING from everything. It does not need HDMI, and internal HDD is optional. a great choice.
