OK - so my ancient circa-late 90's Sony no-frills DVD player finally bought the farm and I need a new one. I'd like to take this opportunity to upgrade a bit, so I'm looking at progressive scan Blue Ray capable players. I've identified a nice budget model that appears to meet my needs. One important feature I want is to play streaming Netflix content through the DVD to the TV, and therein lies my question.
I have wired Cat 5 all through the house, except the addition where the entertainment center is. I have three ports available on the hub. I could possibly drag cable there, but it would be difficult and dirty business. So, here's the question:
Is there a way to put a wireless adapter on the DVD player, and integrate it somehow to my wired network? Is there such a product? Or, would it be best to hitch up my skirt, crawl under the house, and do battle with the rats and spiders to drag the cable?
Ancillary question: Would throughput be better on the wire, over the air, or a wash either way?
