So, I'm thinking about setting up a system at my new place that allows me access to files on my PC in my bedroom on the nice new TV in the living room. I plan on setting up a wireless G/N (Draft) network once I get myself settled in and I came upon these: Network Media Devices
on Newegg and was wondering how i should go forward.
The way I see it, I have two options. One of these wireless media players, or building a media center PC. I'd like to go the cheapest route if possible without sacrificing playability. Does anyone have any information on these players or any others (the types of files they can handle, their performance, etc.) I'm thinking a media center PC that can play all the stuff I come across on the interwebs (including HD resolution stuff) will cost on the order of $500+ and will use way more power than a set-top box, but that most of these network media players will only play super-specific DRM friendly video streams.
Anyone with advice, experience, or insight want to give me a hand?
