Im in the process of building my ht system but main objective is a new receiver. My plan aside from the receiver is to upgrade to an HP MediaSmart Server from my 250gb external hard drive, but was curious what the best way would be to hook it up to the new receiver.

Right now to stream movies from my external hard drive im using the Western Digital WDTV to pass through movies straight to the tv because my old receiver doesnt have hdmi in/outs.

Now if i get a new receiver will i still need to use the WDTV box and run the hdmi out of that into the receiver, or is there a way to connect the HP MediaSmart server right to the new receiver via usb or ethernet or something, and which receivers are capable of this.

Also i am trying to stay reasonably priced under $1k for the receiver if possible.
