the only problem is most people want to watch their 60" big screen. Now, you could educate people about connecting the comp to the screen, getting more than integrated graphics, etc. or it could be like dvd, pop it in, hit the play buton at the menu and just keep it nice and easy, i don't want to be getting news while watching a movie, and i don't think download hd content for your tv via your comp is going to catch on for a while. Even the iTV can't do 1080p (i think) and even then, you need a wifi-n router to stream that kind of content. standalone players is the best way to go for now.
