    Well its taken far longer to appear than when I first posted about it about 8 months ago but anyway at least it should be here soon. It looks like it may be sold only with dedicated media center PC's for now. Still it will be interesting to see what samsung/nec and HP come up with.

    Have a look at it in action, click on the stream which is suitable for your internet connection (dialup or broadband)

    Ok its probably some hybrid system, I dont think the Media Center PC's are available until July/August 2002. The main reason why I think this is good is that we might get some kind of standard interface to work on for making our HTPC's truely something which works well in the living room. Especially when you look at what Myra could do for automation of the HTPC etc...
