Archos TV: everything you hoped the Apple TV would be

Archos TV Plus
Archos is branching out from its portable media player roots. While the company unveiled an update to its line of portable media player/recorders, the big news as far as we're concerned is that Archos is getting into the set top box game with the Archos TV Plus.

Here's what we know about the Archos TV Plus so far:
  • Includes hard drives ranging from 80Gb to 250GB
  • Includes UB 2.0, WiFi, and Ethernet connections
  • HDMI and RGB inputs and outputs
  • Functions as a standalone PVR
That's right, it's got a larger hard drive than an AppleTV, can record television shows, and has an electronic program guide. And it lets you stream video from your PC or the internet.

And of course, you can synchronize the Archos TV Plus with Archos portable media players. It looks like the Archos TV Plus will be available for €220 - €300, or $300 to $400 U.S.

What is probably a decent product, is going to be offset with the previous experiences I've had with Archos in the past. With a previous product's they couldn't (or wouldn't) fix because of static charge issues and my Jukebox 20 with bad A/C jacks and firmware issues and lockups, not to mention customer service that is accusatory instead of supportive and helpful. Thus product lines up nicely with what I would like to do in my home system, but I can't bear to purchase something with the Archos name.
