Can't see why they would try to worry about that in projectors, similarly to the fact projectors don't have TV tuners in them. Projectors are pure display devices, always have been. Adding streaming functionality then requires constant internet, meaning the LAN connection with internet, which not that many owners have,or manufacturers would have to start including wireless chip sets on top. Not all that logical really when you can add any variety of device to add on and replace without worrying about changes in standards of decoding that affect built-in chipsets in displays. You have to add an audio system to projectors to get sound anyway, so it's no real stretch to add a source that streams along side the other desired video sources most people want, say like cable or sat tuners, ATV, disc players,etc. I'd rather take away say a Sony FMP-X10 that's outdated from the equipment rack and add a UHD player with streaming built in. It just goes with the territory, as opposed to those who say hang a panel on the wall and want as little clutter or external stuff to worry about as possible.Ok, makes sense. I'm surprised that streaming functionality hasn't been incorporated into HT projectors. Is that because of the processing/storage requirements and that projectors are usually fairly small devices? (Although in actuality, most of the HT projectors I have seen are considerably larger in form factor than Blu-Ray players that contain streaming apps.) Is it an issue with wifi interference or running Cat6 cable to projectors? Heat output?
It just seems that streaming apps would be a logical inclusion in today's HT projectors.
