I am about to add a fourth TV to my household and I am hoping someone can give me a solution to my streaming woes. I would like something that can stream Netflix/Hulu/Amazon and the 2 TBs of movies I have on a network drive. So far, I have had to give up something from this list or use multiple devices.
WD TV Live - This is probably the closest to what I am looking for. It streams Netflix, Hulu, and my movies, but does not have Amazon. Additionally, the user interface not the best and it tends to run slow.
Apple TV - I love everything that Apple TV does. It has a great interface and there is nearly no delays. However, Apple TV cannot access Amazon or my networked movies.
Roku - I have been looking at the Roku 3, but it seems to be lacking in the ability to stream my movies.
I believe it is possible to get the Apple TV and Roku to stream my network devices, but it requires some type of media server. I really don't want to have my computer running all the time so that I can occassionally stream a movie.
I am guessing the only all encompassing solution is some type of media server. If this is the case, is there a cheap one I can build, or will a cheap one lag and just frustrate me more?
