I need some help figuring out what media streamer to get to play my movies.
1. I have used XBox360 hooking up to Windows Media Center and MediaBrower integrated. This has been the best visual experience so far but it is a bit slow when browsing the library and I had quite a few formats not supported (pain).
2. Currently I have Mezzmo installed on my media server as a DLNA Server and I use WDTV Live devices through the house to stream from Mezzmo. In my game (home theater) room I have the WDTV Live Hub. Now with this setup I have yet to have a movie not play. Mezzmo handles everything very well. Problem is my GUI is a simple file browser now. I miss the MediaBrowser type interface where I get cover art, synopsis, actors, rating, etc...
So now I am on the hunt for a dedicate media streamer that will get movie info from IMDB/TheTVDB/Etc... It must be a DLNA Client though. I don't want to put the movies directly on the device.
Note the use of a dedicated streamer. I have already done the whole build a PC, Linux/Windows, Media Player, blah blah. It is too much maintenance and became a pain.
