In addition to the helpful posts that have been made here, someone else also wrote that they use the D-Links DSM-520.

In the last couple of weeks, LG and Netflix announced partnering to stream from Netflix through a box to your TV without using your pc (if I understood correctly).

All of these seem like very exciting developments. Just as my Roku M500 allowed me to get radio without having to involve my computer (a wonderful development for me, particularly as I am in the hills and get poor conventional radio reception), so too I am keeping my eyes open for a device that will allow me to get video without having to involve my computer.

Actually, I would not be surprised to hear that Anthony Woods participated in this since started to with them a while a go.

The new Xilleon chipsets announced this week at CES sure would be nice to see in a successor product. IF Roku would consider getting back into the market and take everything they did RIGHT about the Photobridge along into a updated product...

Too bad we'll probably never see it stateside.

This one looks interesting too...

Primary change from the prior model is it has HDMI output (in place of DVI) and supports SATA (but not eSATA) hard drives.

Here is one that may be close, but only does 720p.

http://www.engadget.com/2008/07/10/hand ... -greatest/

There are about 50 pictures linked from the link too (if you want to see more)

I still say a HD1000 with better eye-candy in the UI, updated video codecs, able to go to URL's (e.g. YouTube) and audio codecs (or just sign up Soiaf 8) ) external PSU like the HD600&HD2000 and HDMI would knock socks off...
But hey, I'm a big Photobridge fan!
Roku3 and Roku HD1000 [Rev B] on a Samsung HLP5674W DLP in the living room; a Roku2 and two Roku XS and a few SoundBridges.Win7; Kubuntu and XP via RT-N66U, E2000 and a switch or two. I own stock in Roku, it's just all in the form of hardware.Viva la Roku

Check out Popcorn Hour A-100. It appears to be doing everything that HD-1000 was capable of plus H.264, HDMI and internal hard driver. Not open source though.

Does the A-100 support Linux? It mentions SMB shares, which sounds promising.

I would miss the SDK and VNC support, though.

Finally, I think I found the perfect replacement to the Photobridge.

Check out the new LG BD390 Blu Ray player, complete with wireless streaming of audio and video files in HD and Dolby Digital, 1 GB of onboard memeory, and the ability the stream Netflix movies and YouTube videos. And of course it plays Blu Ray DVDs too.

This will be on sale in early May for about $400, less than what the PB used to cost and blows away the features of the Photobridge.

Let me know what you think!

I wonder if we should also discuss this over in the Roku Digital Video Player forum? I don't know if there's any technical reason that the Roku Digital Video Player can't be modified by Roku to stream pictures, videos and sound from files on a computer or storage device to a TV Screen. They seem to be taking their time or waffling a bit as to whether they willl develop some or all of these features into the Roku DVP. Maybe this announcement of increased healthy competition will help them decide where to go with some of this.

Or maybe they will want to develop further separate photobridge type products (don't know... have never used a photobridge).

Nothing I have found online yet references the ability to stream files from a network source. NetFlix, YouTube and BD Live content are mentioned but nothing yet on local media.

I'll keep googling.

I have spoken to LG technical support and they have assured me that their new player will indeed stream photo and music files from your pc to your entertainment system.

However, in order to stream Netflix videos to your tv, you need at least a transfer rate of 1.5 MPS, so DSL users may have marginal functionality.

Re: FINALLY FOUND A GREAT REPLACEMENT FOR THE HD1000

I currently had an Optoma H31 ceiling mounted and am looking for an easy drop in replacement. Is the Hd1000 a candidate as far as lens position etc?
