I hear that such players are hit or miss. Take a look at the new Apple TV and Boxee for example. Such new devices cost about as much but may get closer to what you want.
I'm looking to add a unit (like a Blu Ray Player) to my new TV that I can not only stream netflix but also hulu and cucirca to watch my favorite shows. Is that possble or do I always have to go through the chore of attaching my laptop to the TV?
