Play On + WD TV Live = Netflix


#1

I have a Moxi DVR which installed a fully licensed version of Play-On, on my PC.  An added benefit though is Play-On feeds Hulu, Netflix, Amazon On Demand, CBS, ESPN, via the media server option to the WD TV Live as well. I do NOT have a Netflix or an Amazon account, but the other services (Hulu, ESPN, CBS), worked. 

NetFlix is the holy grail for media recpetion devices, so I wonder how long the wait is before a deal is struck and a new firmware is available giving you access to Netflix, but if you cannot wait and money is burning a hole in your pocket, then Play-On might be a fit for you.  There’s a 14 day trial so you can try before you buy.

Can you confirm that ‘PlayOn’ can push video’s to the WDTV Live?  and the WDTV Live will display the video on the TV screen?

We are having problems with Win 7 ‘Play To’, in that, the video is pushed/sent to the WDTVLive, but it fails to display video portion.  The audio track is playing but no video.

If PlayOn will push video and WDTV Live will display it, I may check out PlayOn.  But I would like for someone to confirm it works.
