Don't want to start a new thread, so asking here: I need a smartbox in kids room. Streaming Netflix, but also playing DVD rips from network share (I have a hard drive plugged straight to the router). Don't want to mess with HTPC - too expensive, no native Netflix support, though possible to add. I don't want to depend on my PC to play videos from network share as well.
So far, only two options I see are: WDTV live streaming and FireTV with XMBC installed. Could anyone provide a feedback?
There are also couple of XBMC addons that would be nice to have. They are not in official addons list, I was installing them (on the HTPC) from zip file. Can it be done in FireTV ?
