Please pick my media streamer device

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I'm a long time SageTV user and am still running it with a few HD-300 extenders. These are Sigma based and can play all my local MKV/MP4 video files just fine. I need a second device to supplement it for just a couple features. 1 & 2 are easy. #3 seems to be the hard one to find.

1) Netflix streaming support

2) Hulu streaming support

3) Play full album (CD rip) FLAC audio files with CUE support to break up the tracks during playback.

For #3 - bonus points if it can handle cover.jpg art for the album covers and play directly from a Windows/SMB share as opposed to DLNA.


Basically, I want a variation on a Squeezebox, but it would be nice if it had Netflix/Hulu too. It does not need an internal HDD, only network support. Anything out there do this?

WDTV Live claims to do all that but in reality I found it would not play FLAC files from my PC.

HTPC all the way now...

There isn't a media player that can do that. I would suggest HTPC as well.

I thought I saw a post that the older NeoTV 550 did this. Not sure about the new ones. Can anyone confirm?

The Dune players do number 3.

Boxee Box does most of what you want. None of the streamer boxes do a very good job on Albums / Cover Art. Boxee may have a good 3rd party app for albums. The problem of getting netflix or Hulu device is that they do a crap job on movies in the wild, or something you may rip for your server at home.

How about just FLAC music file with CUE sheet support? My next Blu-ray player will support Hulu and Netflix so that is no longer important. I suppose the music jukebox is the only basic requirement now.
