Who still produces players compaitble with Windows?

I have a home network with audio and video content streamed from my Windows 7 PC. At various display devices I have stand alone boxes (Boxee Box, WD Player) that access the content on my network and display it on my TV's.
Ive been out of the loop for a while but as my devices are failing I find that there arent even replacements available. Both Boxee Box and WD no longer make players. I settled with two brands because they were the only ones I could get to play nice with my W7 network.

What to do now and where to turn? I suppose Popcorn Hour?

Kodi Chromeboxes work with Window shares.

Unless I am missing something here you should be able to go as low as a Google Chrome, Roku then you can go with an Amazon Fire TV, Nvidia Shield. From there you can also go PCH, Mede8er and of course Dune. All of which are Network Media Players in one form or another.

Denon AVR-X7200 - Klipsch RF-82 II Fronts, RC-62 II Center, RS-52 II Surrounds & R-112SW & Four CDT-5800-C II Ceilings for an Atmos 5.1.4 Setup.
