Lost track of the technology recently and just have a simple question:


Is there a commercial device on the market (besides an htpc) in the $200-$250 range that can do all of the following:


1. Play DVDs and/or Blurays

2. Play movies from my home network

3. Stream movies from services like Blockbuster and Netflix


Thanks.

What do you mean by "play movies from my home network"?


How are they stored/archived, etc.


Offhand it sounds like a PS3 would do all of the above. The PS3 requires a disc in order to handle Netflix streaming, and you would need to order movies via PSN.


The XBox 360 has Netflix streaming integrated to the device, but does not support Blu-ray playback.

Sorry. Should have been more specific. I have movies stored in various formats, from full VIDEO_TS folders to .avi and .mkv. I could probably pare it down to just full DVD rips and .avi if necessary though.

LG 370/390 can or wait for the 2010 models.

I'm not seeing any reviews of those models mention playing movies from a networked storage drive. Are you sure they are capable of that?
