    I'm getting ready to replace our old living room NTSC TV & DVD player
    with a nice new HDTV and Blu-ray player. I have been dabbling,
    having an Elgato EyeTV with a 2008 Hybrid USB receiver and also a
    WD TV Live media player. Yazsoft's Playback software make them
    work together pretty nicely.

    Seems like "Internet" connectivity is becoming pretty standard, so
    although I've got most of the LAN streaming/playback capabilities
    I desire with the WD TV LIVE box, I'm still interested in the
    network functions that HDTVs and Blu-ray players might offer with
    respect Mac connectivity. I'd be interested in comments on
    the various manufacturers network (DLNA) implementations.

    Thanks!

    I have a Sony Bravia LCD which works well with my imac mini and EyeTV via the HDMI connector.
    It has a 100BaseT connector too, but the software only to share still pictures or music, not video :-(
