I connected the server through Devolo 1200+ Power adaptors as it is upstairs and TV is down in the living room. My Panasonic Bluray managed to stream the content at full 1080p with DTS audio. The only problem was/is going through the Blu-ray DLNA interface to get the the movies as it is utter pants, just folders and folders to get to the movie you want to watch, same with the Sony DLNA media interface.
This is why I am looking for something else which can work on my TV as a does Plex Client on my computer monitor.
I am just looking at Plex Home Theatre see how it is different to PMS and how I can get it to show up on my tv.
If you want to get the full Plex "Experience" you have a few options, but would require a TV That supports it (I believe Samsung is the only one so far) or get some kind of external hardware like a Roku, Amazon Fire TV, X-Box, Play Station. The Plex website also lists Vizio and LG but I am not sure if that is their TVs or not.
Those all have an "App" if you want to run Plex Home Theater (which I really like) you will need some kind of Computer to run it. Putting together a small HTPC isn't a big deal but only you can decide if you want to go in that direction.
