After being a subscriber to Netflix for about a year I decided to try the option of playing movies instantly off of their site. I would like to get a device that I can connect to my Onkyo 886 using HDMI supporting 1080p/HBR audio. I am also hoping that a device such as this is also available with a remote opposed to a keyboard or mouse. There is no need for a wireless device unless that is a standard offering as my PC is close to my HT system.

I am a complete noob when it comes to computers and streaming audio/video from my PC. I do not have a laptop and will most likely not have one for awhile. Any advice or thoughts on a device that would work would be appreciated.
