Looking for a NETFLIX streaming Device

I have a RoKu and love it. I wanted to get a second one but with a feature that would let me play avi, mp4,mpeg etc. movies, OR stream those movies from my itunes on the network, although storage capacity is a plus, I would also like access to the net or to YouTube but that's not a must. I really like the WDTV Plus units but they are like 100$+ where i could buy a second roku directly from netflix for 50$. My issue is when i put "NETFLIX STREAMING DEVICE" into NewEgg, Amazon or Ebay i recieve FAR too many generic options and im not sure which ones have:

-NETFLIX streaming
-avi, mp4,mpeg
WiFi Capable
-RCA output (a must since i own old TV's)

Please help me find the Netflix streaming device im looking for!

Most  media boxes are priced around about that, even your RoKu
$50 dollars range you need to be quick and would second hand be reliable?
Take a look through these for ideas,
shoppping around on the internet as you know prices can vary.

When i posted this question Netflix did not yet have an app for the droid. now that they do i can watch netflix off my android using a 3 dollar hdmi cable from ebay. Action movies are a little choppy and laggy looking but when watching comedies and tv shows you dont notice.
since Merete had Netflix ready devices http://www.netflix.com/NetflixReadyDevices he will get the points since he had the answer there before the app was listed on that page, you will now see Android when you click that link.
