The idea actually seems to be helped along by the economic downturn. CNN reports that the trend is growing not just among tech-saavy early adopters but now among the budget-conscious as well.

Just come across the ATV (which maybe shows to the lack of marketing on the device) but one of the attractions was low cost to bring my PC mp3 library to my stereo.

Adding a tuner then the large HDs associated with PVRs will definitely up the costs but guess as is, the ATV isn't flashy enough to keep selling.

I've got one a few months back, and the more I use it, the more I like it. At first I thought it was kind of limited with too many hoops to jump through to get my media up to my home theatre. But I think I "get it" now... let it do what it does and it works very well and am very happy with it now.
