If anyone is a TwiT TV fan, an app just got added for FireTV. 99c
No you could use NFS if you wanted. But you have to connect to a network share in order to access the files. XMBC also has some support for AFS .. but not had much luck with that. Need to keep fiddling with it.
I've got a Denon 4311 and the upscaling and de-interlacing capabilities are pretty awful.
I think you may find DVD 24fps playback more trouble than it's worth.
