Looking for a BlueRay player that I can stream video to.

I have a PS3 in the living room that I can stream video to using the PS3 Media Server on a Windows 7 media server. However, I'd like to get a BlueRay player that has the same capabilities, but cheaper than a PS3 because I would never need any other functionality. Although, Netflix streaming would be a plus. Is there such a thing? I've been searching, but I'm having a hard time finding anything conclusive in how well they work. Maybe I just need to get another PS3?

May the wombat of happiness snuffle through your underbrush.

    You probably just need to get another PS3. I've never seen a base BR player with that feature, though you might be able to find a full stereo receiver with it (my Onkayo can do it, as well as stream YouTube and such).

    You'll want a Blu-ray player that has apps, specifically the Netflix app; any player that featured this would likely have the Netflix logo on the box, or at least advertise it in the specs. For streaming video from a computer you'll want a player with a built-in DLNA client. Not sure if Win7 media server can serve as a DLNA server (I think it can), but the Blu-ray players I've played with that feature a DLNA client include DLNA server software. I've only played with LG devices, but I'm sure other manufacturers also sell players with this functionality.

    Yeah, that's what my stereo receiver does, acts as a DLNA client. It also has it's own built in YouTube thing. No netflix app, but that's fine, I have a zillion consoles for that.

    Well, honestly I think I found my answer, as the ability to play all file formats is much greater than the ability to play Bluerays, for me. Behold: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822219007&Tpk=patriot alpine
