3 week ago I saw this Sony BDplayer for $110 ($110 was getting down to my level, hehe, and I was tempted). But a week ago I saw this Samsung for $90, needless to say, I couldn't let it go. It has streaming supports for Netflix, Pandora, etc; but you have to remember this are paid subscription programing (not that I care for any of these).
I bought a Kodak Theatre HD Player at a close-out price. It's OK for streaming movies from a PC hard drive but it doesn't support streaming from my Netgear ReadyNAS Duo or Netflix. The Internet content it does support is mostly 5 minute clips from cable tv shows. It has a funky Internet Radio system too. Searches for WCBS, WCBS-AM, WCBS-FM, and Newsradio 880 gave zero results. Many stations available on stand-alone Internet radios are not available on the Kodak. It is not affiliated with Reciva.Com . Winnowing down through their content menus to build a favorites list is really tiresome. I tried comparing four inexpensive media streamers on CNET's site: http://reviews.cnet.com/4504-4_7-0.html?id=34117510&id=33775802&id=33775414&id=33018087&tag=compare . 75% of the results are "info not available."
Can someone steer me to a $100 Internet media server with HDMI and WiFi that supports DLNA, Netflix, YouTube, Hulu, network TV streaming, and enough Internet content to keep me from getting bored?
