The digital multimedia player, Mediagate MG-45 turned up today. Wow, it was so easy to plug in and use. LAN and power in, video and audio out to my TV and amp. Remote control. Bam. I'm watching a downloaded DivX on my TV, from the couch. The DivX is where I downloaded it on a shared drive on my PC. It just works. It also plays music and shows photos. $179. Not using the mouse, priceless.
Physical media is dead.
