The specs on the Mvix MX-780HD sound pretty good, and the price is right too. I’m sure it isn’t as polished as the Apple TV, but very few things are when compared to Apple products. One advantage that the Mvix has over the Apple TV is its ability to play many different formats (without hacking the Apple TV).
