You'd think in this day and age there would be a simple all in one unit that would tie everything together. It's harder being in a small fragmented market. Every company needs ROI so they lock things down with proprietary formats, and make some integrations harder, I guess not wanting to step on the toes of other operators.
Recently bought Apple TV and it is great streaming almost anything from the net.
Apple TV doesn't integrate normal tv as far as I'm aware but I generally avoid regular tv in the first place. Tried to stream One News from iPhone 5...not accepting HTML5 yet so I gave up. Seems idiotic really.
Good luck with the custom build! Let us know how it goes.
