This looks like a promising solution for moving videos from your computer to your TV. The industry has not settled on a name for these types of products: “media extender”, “digital media adapter”, “digital media gateway” … all provide functionality that is similar to the AppleTV but provide support for more video formats and codecs as well as support for composite video displays while AppleTV is HD-only.
Update: Many of these are also called “Media Streamers” … MySimon has a list here.
