Ha, you beat me to the punch... I was about to send this myself :)

It looks (to my untrained eye) that it should be capable of handling
low-power video codecs (possibly MPEG2, but maybe not MPEG4). Its specs are
pretty similar to an XBOX (not quite the same), so it might be able to boot
something like Xebian and run a frontend.

Anyhow, the hardware is all there. It is definitely enough to handle RTJPEG.
If I didn't have my hands full right now, I would start hacking on this

On a separate note, wouldn't this be a neat thing to re-appropriate as a
storage server, a'la Linksys NSLU2?
