Blu-Ray Player with metadata Art-enabled DLNA?

So my Denon AVR's DLNA player is actually pretty damn good with the iPhone Denon app. It shows album/artist art, and it can even browse my movie collection and show the poster art for all my movies. It's fast, and easy to navigate too. Win!

The only catch is, it won't play videos. If only it had video codecs in it to play movies, and a Netflix app, I wouldn't need a streaming device at all.

So, my question is...

Is there a Blu-Ray player out there that has a DLNA player that shows metadata art?

I really like Samsung's GUI of starting up the DLNA player, but it doesn't show metadata art, and trying to seek (they call it 'jump') through a video file causes major lip sync issues. Did they even test the damn thing? You gotta be kidding me!

It's also a tad bit slow to load large libraries - the GUI locks up until the entire folder loads. This is nearly deal killer for me.

I also find it obnoxious that for most of these DLNA players, you navigate to a 'Video', 'Music' or 'Pictures' option, and then you have to browse a 'Video', 'Music' or 'Pictures' DLNA folder. I just CHOSE 'Video', dummy! They really need a better software engineer writing this code.

Google search on the forums turned up nothing too helpful.
