Is there a Home Theatre device that will allow watching international interent TV on my LDC TV? I saw one once but I am not able to find it.

I am NOT talking about a Slingbox here.

Something like or TV.exe , but made as a set-top box for the livingroom.

... Looking at, it looks pretty cool - You could always get an ION / ATOM powered small form factor computer and link it up to your tv - use a wireless keyboard and mouse then actually visit those sites.

Also gives you a lot of flexibility for the future (thinking webcam, instant messenger etc.)

This is personally, what I would do.
