I have not had good luck getting movies to play on our Extenders with MyMovies. Also, I haven't gotten vmcPlayIt to work, in order to play Hulu and Netflix content on the extenders.
I was thinking ing that what I want is a simple DNLA audio and video player. This would support playing content recorded via the TV tuners. Also, since PlayOn is a DNLA server, these players could play Hulu and Netflix content. Also, with Windows 7, other content would be transcoded.
The only problems that I see with this solution are:
- I don't think that it will be possible to play live TV, or control the tuners.
- Hopefully it would be easy to configure the heirarchy of the content. For example, I would want recorded content to grouped by series. Also, I would want to see the meta data for the content.
