    Personally, I've thought for years that it'd be good to have a decent media centre PC in the lounge. Could never quite be bothered with it all though. I know it's possible to find/build a nice looking PC, but err....I just could be arsed. Also, the whole load up time is a major faff. I like instant (or at least near instant on) devices for media playback.

    They do take time and with things like the WDTV and DLNA there may be less need in the future. In my case using what I described above means I get HDTV all over the house from the satellite without having the need for a decoder in each room and a sat point. But yes media centres can be fucking evil "when codecs go bad"!
