Basically I've been pondering this for a while. Consulting the oracle google has returned few results and I want to do this as cheap as possible. I shall tell a short story...
My wife's laptop broke and we can't really afford to get a new one, so she's been using my desktop computer to do her work and while she does this, usually I'm quite bored, I could go out and things but I would rather watch things on the TV while she works.
For a while I was looking at PS3's (too expensive) and Apple TV (iTunes doesn't support AVIs) so I'm looking for something quite cheap, available in the UK and preferable supports alot of files that can be streamed over my local wireless.
Thanks for the help.
