What about GrandSlamTV... or perhaps just SlamTV?

Out of all the names proposed so far in this thread, I still like TVPlay the most. Or maybe HDPlay...

I proposed TVPlay because I think my wife will understand what an icon named TVPlay will do. (and also because it is similar to MPlay but easily distinguishable because the difference at the beginning of the name).

Lot of interest naming the new 'Baby' :lol:

I like ' TVPlay ' simple, descriptive & lines up with MPlay 8)

EXACTLY! I don't think the WAF can be overlooked, despite what us nerds think!

How about MPTV? Sort of like MP3....

Alternatively, I also like Stream-TV.

PS: I have to admit, that this device would be useless to me w/o a front end like Roku since I have no interest in building or using a HTPC in my HT setup. If we could figure out a way to set this up to also interface with a NAS for buffering or even storage..... that would be the ideal solution. I'm holding off on purchasing until I see a Roku proof of concept. If this gets off the ground than I will jump on board.

PPS: Hope this doesn't defer DVD Menu navigation development on MPLAY too much ;)

there is even talk of a client for the Roku HD1000

A quick update.. I have a POC up and running, and was actually watching live TV on my Roku last night. It's still pretty rough, and I need to tweak the buffers to help minimize breakup in the video, but I hope to post something for you guys to test a bit later this week...

Several threads on the SiliconImage forums about that. They state it is operating within normal parameters even though it is perceived to be hot.

Have we heard THAT before somewhere?

yes, the tuners run hot, all tuners run hot even my PVR-150. The tuner is the metal box encased hardware. I've not had mine apart yet but it's tuner section is going to be similar to all the others.
