My buddy liked my setup. My house is wired with CAT6 ethernet, and I stream HD and 3D movies from room to room from my computers. He bought the top of the line Samsung (since he has a Samsung TV), and it didn't have SMB support, so he took it back and bought the top of the line LG, the BP730, and it doesn't offer SMB support either. He dicided to keep the 730 though. It's quite a bit more responsive than my 670, but it still sucks having to rely on the Windows Media Server.

What was the last generation of LG players that supported SMB? I'm in the market for a new player on a budget, and I'm confused and disappointed to see that the only manufacturer (short of Oppo) that supports a wide range of formats and codecs decided to rely solely on the abomination that is DLNA.
