    I use my Sony PS3 and run PS3MediaServer on my PC. It will play virtually every file that a PC can.

    I use a NAS for storage too.

    So if you have a PS3 and a PC then you dont need much else.

    +1 for the Sony PS3 and PS3 Media Server software on my iMac. All HD movie files in MKV streaming to the PS3. The software is free so pretty good value for money if you already own a PS3.

    Bluray player with DLNA is another option, best to check formats before buying unless you want to use transcoding software as mentioned by others.
