Perhaps more like the mac mini that's plugged into the big plasma  
screen in the living room? Or one of the many stereo-component-styled  
"media" PCs sold for the same purpose, perhaps even running Windows  
MCE, a commercial operating system sold precisely because people want  
to hook their computers up to televisions?

Or the old-school hacked XBox running XBMC, pulling video over SMB  
from the PC in the other room?

Or the XBox 360 which can play media from the home-user NAS in the  
back room? The one with the bittorrent client on it? :-)
