Apple TV, not MacBook, behind latest rumor hype?

Could the new MacBook rumor, that everyone has been getting so worked up over, actually be about a completely different device?  That's one theory: that Apple are preparing to make yet another assault on the living room in the shape of a new Apple TV.  According to GigaOM, a new - probably PVR-equipped and media streaming - Apple TV would enable the company to push back against TiVo and Slingbox while further taking advantage of their iTunes distribution partnerships with major networks.
