I am still a fan of the WDTV live. I play BBC shows that end up on my
hard drive. The Web TV stuff is not as interesting as Usenet content.

Maybe I'm missing something, but I think the Roku definition of
1000 channels is marketing BS. I took a quick look at their list
of "channels" and the only thing there that I see that I regularly
watch is Nova. It appears that most, maybe all the Nova content
is available online. It looks like you can watch the NBC Nightly
News, which claims it's the only major news broadcast that's available
online in it's entirety, but it's delayed 4 hours from when it's
broadcast here in EST. More typical looks like you get some clips
of some content from a lot of places, but it looks to me like you're
not going to watch the same content realtime on most of the channels
that you get via cable or sat.
I'm sure it can be fine for some folks, I just think you need to
figure out if what you actually watch is on there. For me, the
answer is no.
I'm using my WDTV right now to listen to "The Tech Guy" (a call-in show
about technology) netcast.
I wouldn't want anything built in to a TV or usable only with that. I
depend on the ability to make use of the output. It this case to
distribute it to other TVs in this house, so I'm not restricted to this
room while listening.
