You know what I want in a 'streaming box/console'? Full HDMI CEC control, and an IR blaster array. I want the damn thing to smartly control everything, so that I can pick up a phone or tablet and run the whole show. I want it to know what's turned on and off, and be able to control everything in as fine detail as is possible with each devices' exposed IR codes and CEC interfaces.
Beyond that, I want it to be able to stream anything, from any service, with it's own unified interface. I want to be able to search for particular media and have it tell me where all I can get it from- Netflix, Hulu, Youtube, Amazon, whatever- and at what quality; and hell, I want it to be able to reserve it at my local Redbox or even the local Wal-mart or Bestbuy if that's the only place I can get it!
And it had better support the widest range of input devices, and they'd better work across everything. I want to be able to use a unified keyboard and pointing device like Logitech's K400, or anything else, including a console controller or a joystick, over USB or Bluetooth, without hassle.
And gaming had better be awesome, whatever it is! I think that there's a huge market for Android gaming on the TV. Just like the Xbox Live! Arcade setup, ports of legacy games and versions of today's 'lighter' games would be awesome, especially if an SoC with an over-built graphics component is used. It'd better be able to render a solid 60FPS to 1080p, and it'd better be able to support some kind of 4k output aside from a direct 1:4 upscaling.
Oh, and it better be smooth. Real smooth. I don't want some clunky interface like my LG smart TV or my Samsung phone; it needs to be an appliance that wakes up instantly and always responds to user inputs with snap, regardless of what's going on. It needs to be a seamless appliance that anyone can use!
