Wireless media hubs

Anyone have one? I've been considering getting one to stream mp3s from my computer into another room, where my stereo is.

Anyone experience with them? Besides mp3s, do you use it for anything else?

In a way, my Series 2 TiVo fits the bill. I have it hooked into my wireless network via the USB port, and now that Home Media Option is free, I use this feature frequently.
I can also do photo slideshows. Mp3 and photos, that's about it. It works great I must say.
I just wish the TiVo would show video files I have downloaded on my computer hard drive.

Well, I have a DirecTivo in that room already, so it would be pointless for me to get another one. That's why I was leaning towards a media hub.

I have one. Done by DLink. Does, mp3s, pictures, movies. One nice thing is that it works at "G" instead of only "B" like most. Only drawback is that it dosen't do my favorite codec (smr), so I have to convert movies first. Home movies I mean. Here it is - http://www.dlink.com/products/?pid=318
