There is alot of talk trying to get Hulu to stream to the WD TV Live, but I would be happy with a server program that can stream from my PC to the WD TV Live (thats all I do with my WD TV Live anyway).
PlayOn is Windoze only and is not free, so that is not an option. Is there a linux equivalent or has anybody tried the Hulu Desktop out?
I don't want to be like everyone else sitting around waiting for the Boxee box by D-Link to come out.....but so far I am.

I was lamenting the same myself for a few weeks and through trial-and-error have found the easiest and by far the most reliable to be Samba. I have a Fedora 12 machine running Samba with Share Level security and it's worked great. Streaming HD .mkv files without missing a beat. I have the Fedora machine wired to my router, then the WD TV Live running over wireless with a D-Link DWA-140. Everything else I tried was just too complicated - Samba was 5 minutes work to set up and use.
To be honest, I was shocked at how well it actually worked!
I hope this of some use to you - good luck!
