I'm not sure if STB is the right term, but basically I need a device that I can plug into my network and my tv, so that I can stream movie files to my TV. I was doing this for awhile with my XBOX, but it has broken, and I don't play games. I'd rather just get a hifi device that can do this for me. Does anyone have recommendations in the 50-150 $ price range? My brother recommended a Sony Blue Ray player so I could play DVDs and stream, but I read that it does not support AVI playback. I am kind of against physical media, so I don't really care for a physical dvd player. I plan on streaming everything, that is really the new way IMO. No need to store a bunch of discs, I don't watch movies more than once. Does anyone know what brand excels at this and is known for flexibility? I want to be able to play virtually any type of codec and file type. If there is a way to interface with the device and customize it as well, that is even better. Also I would want it to be able to handle HD. Thanks!
