I just read today that Netgear intend to release a new HTPCish box, namely the EVA8000. It seems to be quite a smart machine, with built in support for WMV9 and more. This is a short coming of my mythtv setup, since it can play wmv, but it isn't vmp9+ i cant access the few online movie rental services we have in Sweden. What i am thinking is to use this box to replace/complement my current mythtv frontend, while keeping the mythtv backend. We'll just have to wait and see if it lives up to the expectations.
