Local network compatibility is equally terrible/non-existent. Roku excels at online streaming services, but I’ve got too many wonderful old classics in xvid and vob and iso formats to make Roku my sole media player.

The WD TV Streaming player is your best option. Western Digital actively supports the device with firmware updates and an online forum. Like your Boxee, WD TV supports just about every audio and video format/codec on the planet (including ripped discs with full menus, .flv, .ts, etc.). WD TV displays my shared NAS drives automatically. I just navigate to a share, click it, then navigate the folder tree to the file and click to play it. It will play the next file sequentially in alpha order, or it can follow an .m3u playlist. It has built in RSS, smartphone support, DNLA…

WD TV supports Netflix, Youtube, Hulu and a number of other services (no Amazon yet). But Roku is the clear leader in online streaming, just as WD TV is the top file player.
