Is there any real use for the Sony Media Extend that attaches to the back of some of their sets (including mine: kds 55a3000). I would like to be able to stream stuff to the tv from my media storage pc without the use of a pc at the tv. and Is there any hacks for this item to maby stream netflix or use it with playon?

This "thing" was bundled with a Sony LCD from Costco. It's why I chose to buy a Sony LCD from Best Buy instead. Costco isn't cheaper if they bundle some useless POS with the TV.

You didn't actually buy it, did you? There are so many different streamers, why buy one so proprietary? It's not worth the mental effort to figure out what to do with it.
