Archos 500973 250GB TV+ PMP Portable MP3 Audio and Video Player

The above is on sale around for $125 - similar boxes - Western Digital Media Player are also all over.

We're wondering if recording video using an EyeTV (or similar) can easily be transferred to one of these boxes - physically carried to a remote location, and played on a TV? (nothing fancy composite/component video/HDMI whatever.)

It doesn't have to be HiDef (we have a TiVo and the picture is crap, LOL)
Low-medium quality video is just fine - think rabbit ears - VCRs.
We have hard wired Ethernet and WiFi throughout, but prefer as low tech, low cost as possible. Record on Mac - drag copy file to box - move box - play on a TV. Is there a step missing - file conversions or something? The less hoops to jump through the better....

Will this box do this? Other suggestions/solutions welcome keeping in mind all we want is -
Record on Mac - drag copy file to box - move box - play on a TV.

Thanks!
