I have a Sony KV-40XBR800 and I am looking to add some type of media server to my system. I am looking to get Netflix to my TV and my music on my PC to my reciever.

It seems that a number of them have come out lately but they all have HDMI outputs and this TV only has DVI. After a couple hours of research I found the Boxee Box that has HDMI for video, a couple of RCA jacks to hook up to the TV and an optical port for the receiver.

Does anybody have any experiences with the Sony's on getting the DVI to work with these type of products?

A simple, inexpensive (couple dollars online) HDMI-to-DVI cable should do the job, I'd imagine. For video at least. Thereare analog RCA audio inputs associated with the DVI input on your TV.
