So I picked up a Sony BDP-BX57 (Identical to BDP-S570 but sold at Costco/Sams with an HDMI cable) for $80 and was wondering about it.
So it has Wireless N, which is nice, so it doesn't stutter when playing media. It has DLNA and the XMB sony menu style (like PS3).
Unlike the PS3 though, its DLNA support is a bit lacking. Anyone get PS3 MEdia Server or something similar to work with it for all file types? So far I can only get MP4 items to work, and only using the built in Streaming options in Win7. PS3 Media Server shows up in the menu but everything shows "no playable file". I'm guessing because the file format it presents isn't compatible.
It's a nice player, and the price was awesome... I'd just like to get some more out of it. The PS3 streams great but doesn't have the bandwidth with its inferior wireless G that's castrated.
I played some MP4s last night in 1080p and it looked great, but most of my media is MKV... :)
