Ok so I have had my HD1000 for a few months now and use it quite often to play VOB files on my Plasma, very handy!
My question is has anyone figured out a way to use these streaming movie sites (Like CinemaNow) to stream video directly to the HD1000? I have a 500GB NAS but video fills it up fairly quickly. I'd like to be able to stream things to the HD1000 and only save my favorites on my NAS.
I've looked at using CinemaNow and MovieLink with other devices. The problem with both of those sites is that they *require* Windows Media Player 9 or 10, or a compatible player that supports the Microsoft DRM system. While there are many different (software) media players available (both commercial and free), there are currently few (if any) players that support the Microsoft WMP DRM system. And, as far as I know, there aren't any players yet available that run under Linux.
So, the problem is not specific to the HD1000. The problem is more with the CinemaNow and MovieLink sites requiring their users use Windows Media Player.
Movies from these sites won't even work with Real Player or Apples QuickTime.
