    Anyone know of any good media streamers I use with my tv. Dont want to spend a fortune, but need something that works.

    I have tons of DIVX files I want to watch on a tv in the other room, dont want to burn to disc anymore. HALP! :wavey:

    that would be great if I had a Mac... but I don't, so that won't work. :hs:

    Why not?

    That's like saying because you don't have a Mac, you can't buy an iPod.

    AppleTV works with both PC and Mac.

    reading comprehension > you

    Right off the bat, I'm not liking it. Why dump a few hundred to end up with no warranty? And if Apple has taught us nothing else, it's you definitely need their warranty, because it's Apple... It looks nice, it's easy to use, and it's gonna break.

    And there's the punch line. You *must* have a mac to get your Apple TV to play DIVX files.

    the article is somewhat incorrect since they imply you need a mac to read/write the HFS+ formatted apple tv hard drive. While it certainly will be easier on a mac, Linux should be able to accomplish the same tasks. Engadget has links to the sshd binary and plist from an Intel mac if you don't have access to one.
