other than Logitech Media Player. it really stinks out loud
The Sony Media Player's is a little more polished than the Logitech Media Player. However, it doesn't seem to be as stable playing the same content between the two Media Players. Unfortunately, until the Android Market becomes available we're limited to Media Player which came with the system.
If you're just looking to play music, you could go with something like Audio Galaxy, which streams through the web (seems a bit inefficient)?
TwonkyMedia server has a web component that you can access through "http://server-ipaddressort" where the default port is "9000". I've used this "PC MediaBrowser" on occasion to stream MP4 videos to Google TV's chrome browser.
You can also try Playon (Watch Internet Videos on Your TV | PlayOn)
i'm looking to stream video from my home server/primary desktop (they're currently one and the same, yes)
i haven't been able to find a good DLNA server, either.
I personally recommend either TwonkyMedia Server or PlayOn with VLC. Otherwise you can just use Windows Media Player Sharing that comes with Windows.
this with the logitech player is somewhat working, the library list sucks and there's no subtitle support.
In order to get my media from either my in home servers or even Google TV blocks sites I use a WDTV media player device with PlayOn software (as a couple of other members have suggested) that is installed on a network PC. Yes, this is more expense but I've been running this for a few years now and have been happy for the most part.
