    I went on the website and did some reading, still can't really figure out if there is any advantage using it over having a pc hooked up directly.

    If you already have something hooked up to play video, then stick with it.

    If you don't have a PC hooked up to HDTV, get a pch.

    the advantages are...
    less complicated to get set up and running
    easier installation
    no worries about plugins, drivers, settings, codecs etc
    cheap alternative to htpc
    smaller footprint
    integrated remote

    the disadvantages are...
    no gaming or internet browser
    less file format support than pc
    less options for advanced settings
    less options for advanced audio
    less of a coolness factor
