The number of convergence devices on the market continues to grow. For the time being, I’m defining convergence devices as anything that aims to bridge the gap between digital content stored on the computer and the entertainment system in the living room. Tivo’s Home Media Option is one such thing, though that’s actually an update to the regular series 2 Tivos rather than a new device. Here’s a device that does video and more formats of audio than the Tivo. That one joins this one from El Gato, the people who also make a Tivo-like product for the Mac that combines software with a firewire or usb device, as well as this one and this software for the ps2.

UPDATE: I found another one called Homepod.

UPDATE2: Yet another: Rokulabs.
