Huh, ever heard of h.264...?
As for a Doubting Thomases, when there is coming an onslaught of single-solution boxes offering unified front-ends for DVDs, Videos, Music, Photos, "cable card" enabled PVR, etc., including a choice of movie download services, I think Apple needs to come up with something better than a one-trick box. Just MO:-)
Wish they had integrated a version of Apple TV in a Mac Mini with a "smart card" slot and HDMI, and of course a decent front-end - then it will be worth talking about, and it would have stolen some of Vista's thunder.
