Thanks.

For a short-term solution, I'd probably go with one of these:


For longer term, I'd look into some of the wireless options out there.

I have a friend with a squeezebox and he seems to like it.

Here's a page that lists several options, depending on the sound quality you're looking for:

Apple TV is starting to ship today.  Not quite what you asked for but I'm sure it will be.  It is really positioned to revolutionize the digital living room.  Some projections (not Apple's) have it being the #1 DVR within a few years and it doesn't even have that capability in rev. 1.

I solved my problem.  I wanted to listen to live365.com on my home entertainment system and it turns out I can get that through TiVo.  I had to sign up for a premium membership, but since I have Tivo hooked into our wireless network, I'm good to go.

I'll probably run a CAT5 cable to the TiVo instead of the wireless connection for better sound, but I can avoid some of those other options (at less until the RIAA kills internet radio).
