An HTPC can really add a lot of functionality to your current TV and stereo system, but the cases aren’t always the perfect shape for your current home theatre stand.  If you have a snazzy HTPC that doesn’t fit, or are not particularly interested in picking up a purpose built HTPC case, consider the SageTV HD Media Extender.  I4U took a look at this device which supports inputs including MPEG1, 2, 4, H.264 up to 1080p, and many more.  It outputs via HDMI, component, composite and S-Video and it’s audio includes left/right audio output and optical S/PDIF. The key is a 10/100 Ethernet port that will work with a DHCP server, allowing you to grab any content over your home network.
