Active TV
Looking for yet another way to watch PC and internet content on your TV? You could get a Windows Media Center extender, a TiVo, an Apple TV, or any number of other set top boxes. Or pretty soon you could look for devices marked with the AMD Active TV label.

Essentially, Active TV looks like a platform for streaming content over a home network from an AMD computer to a compatible set top box, which could be a cable or satellite receiver or perhaps a network enabled DVD player or video game console. AMD is still working to add hardware partners.

The software interface looks user friendly enough. Users will be able to watch online content from sites like YouTube and Veoh. You'll also be able to create custom "channels" of content from home movies, pictures, and music on your PC, which you can then stream to any TV in the house.
