media player 250$ or less BEST options to consider?
i basically want something that will play whatever container and file type i throw at it, i have a lg brp and 3 panasonic brp's in the house (a lg and panny in the living room and panny in all the other bedrooms) and im so sick of one or the other not playing something. i would prefer sub 150$ if possible but id go up to 250$ if need be.
so what suggestions should i look at? i had a older roku which honestly i never liked, and a netgear from a couple years ago which died on me. so have only had the brp's since then. so its been a couple years since looking for one of these. i was tempted by the samsung f7500 but saw it fully supports cinavia even over dlna and i have blu ray pretty covered anyway. i was looking at the new amazon fire but after reading the thread here im not so interested anymore. open to any brand as long as they have decent firmware support so its not a door stopper in a few months. or is there a brp with very capable dlna without cinavia thats worth it over a media player? i dont mind the two boxes if that is the better way to go.
any advice would be appreciated.
