I recently used a Roku 3 for a few weeks (in the past I have used their older models) and I didn't even bother playing around with its local playback abilities. I guess Plex works the best although everything I have read leads me to believe its local playback is half-baked. Even apps like PlayOn come with so many compromises I can't see settling. Realistically the cost of streamers today such as the WD TV Media Player are so cheap especially compared to the other pieces... TV (projector?), receiver, whatnot I refuse to go down that road. As someone else stated a few posts ago if it's entertainment based I won't make it complex or half-baked. Sure I like to play and or tweak but strictly on my terms. If I want to catch something I want to pick up the remote and enjoy it in the best quality possible.
