Slingmedia's next video chucking device will sling video back from PCs to tellies. Apple TV will do a similar trick with the benefit of its own 40GB hard drive. Now Netgear's gone and nipped in ahead of both with its EVA 700.

Hook it up to the living room telly, log on to the network (by Wi-Fi or LAN cable) and it'll happily bung all your downloaded movies, music and photos over to the big screen.

A full remote control enables sofa surfing of your entire media collection and it'll also talk to your video iPod by USB cable, rather like ViewSonic's projector without the built-in dock.

At £180 its 20 quid cheaper than Apple's box but doesn't get its own hard drive. It is, though, available right now.
