Are there any televisions with built-in DLNA (that actually works)?

    I'm looking to buy a new HDTV in the next few weeks, and I would like to have one that can stream content from a NAS via DLNA. I have not yet purchased the NAS either, but am leaning heavily towards Synology for this. Actually, it doesn't *have* to be DLNA -- any tech that accomplishes the goal of displaying content over the network without any additional devices would be welcome. My current "solution" is to have a DLNA server running on my computer (PS3 Media Server), and having a WDTV pick up the content from there and display on the screen. This works OK, but involves twice as many devices as I think it should. Any recommendations?

    None, I guess. That's what my research is showing, too :(

    Closing out the thread, I ended up buying a Samsung UN55D7000. The "AllShare" that's built into the Smart Hub does DLNA just fine, albeit not very prettily. But it plays all my content just fine, and that's the most important thing.
