Is there a reason why there is no group with an AVR?

I would say, I am on
Group #8 (wants anything mixed together in a gigabit ethernet / WiFi environment)
* mixed Networked Environment (HD Ready, Full-HD, HD3D, PC monitors, Notebooks via WiFi...)
* Integration of SAT Receivers / PVR (Vu+, Dreambox, Linux-VDR, MythTV, DVBViewer etc.)
* wants central NAS for content, database, settings
* HDTV possess HDMI ports
* HDReady only Component-In
* HD(3d) projector support
* wants to play SD movies (TS-Streams)
* wants to play DVD movies (VOB)
* wants to play 720P movies (TS-Streams)
* wants to play 1080P movies (BR, MKV, TS-Streams...)
* wants to Bistream HD-Audio
* wants to play 3D 1080P movies (MKV)
* wants to play some games virtually on emulators (no more PS2 / PS3 / XBox / Game Cube / Wii /...)
* wants to have seamless integration of all devices
* wants to play-back any content to any device
* wants to have all this high-tech stuff almost invisible - except the screens of course (WAF)
--- Future whishes:
** wants to have automated media conversions (ad-removing, down/upscaling, ripping of new disks to the library)
** wants to be able to better organize content ( sets, own sub-libraries for the family members, more detailled criteria than just movies and tv-shows )
** wants to play (headless) music everywhere in the house (mp3, internet radio, satelite radio...)
** wants to have real multi-room Audio / Video (content follows user)
** wants to have seemless integration of live-tv / pvr recording / epg integration / timer settings from the xbmc UI / recognition of already recorded content
** wants to integrate home automation features (light scenes, AC, heating, shades, communication system: PBX POTS VoIP, security stuff)
** wants PiP / PaP for library content and streamed live-tv

thanks for the idea xbmcg but i think its perfect as it is with the 7 groups...
including game emulators would be a real mess as not only your group#8 can play games
but group#7/6/5 all can while some may have issues with emulating PS2 and
i wont buy 40 htpc's just to confirm which emulator run fluidy on which build,,
see what i mean?
wanna game? just google the requirements for your game and buy hardware needed for your game..
the game users wanna play really dictates whats gonna be in their systems,,,
then there's only emulator players then there's hardcore PC gamers and bla bla bla..
wanna game? buy gamer hardware and stuff it in an HTPC enclosure...
now, for DVR, there's so many solutions out there now,
i dont feel the need to add this feature in my groups... yet...
same thing applies here,
just google the requirements for the DVR software/hardware u wanna run
and buy hardware needed...

When's the last time this list was updated? For current situation, it probably be a group 4. It seems like all of the mini PCs in group 4 are kinda what I want, but they all look to be pretty pricey.
A mele a2000 seems nice, but it doesn't have a hard drive or optical drive. xbmc probably doesn't really work well on it yet since there's no builds for it.
Any recommendations for a cheap pc that would belong in the group 4 category? Possibly with more than just hdmi/vga out?
