OPPO bdp-83 and bdp-80. Both stream from WMP very, very well.

Don't think they support any external streams yet.

I have 2 of them... a Sony BDP 650 (I think) and a Samsung whose model number I forgot. The Sony streams all kind of stuff, and the Sammy, well it does Netflix, Pandora, BlockBuster... very limited, but works for what I need.

Samsung BD-C6900 that came as part of the bundle with my new Samsung plasma. Really wasn't looking for it since I have two PS3's but this is a nice addition.

I have a Sony Blu Ray BDP 5350 that does OK, but I don't like the way it displays the content when selecting my pictures to play.

None of my Bluray will connect to my PC... only works with the streaming services that they offer. SO I can't stream my pics on anything other than the Mac Mini or the AppleTV in the entertainment center.

Panny 350 with dual HDMI for 3D. We use the Netflix streaming all the time now.

I'm sure Directv can't wait to get their hands on your unit.

Ours is an Oppo BDP-93 (our first Blu-Ray player, too).

I've been extremely happy with its media playback capabilities, including streaming. I only wish they had more sources available but I anticipate many more will be added over the coming months. I think they do need to get more competitive on the "streaming features" front.

It streams OK, but I use my WD Live Plus in that room instead.

Sony BDP-S570 livingroom and bedroom. Wired, also has Wi-Fi, but don't connect that way. In the beginning, Netflix streams would freeze from time to time - not sure if it was the movie itself or the connection. I usually powered down and brought it back up and was fine for a while. After a few firmware updates I believe it was not as prevalent.

Playback of BD and DVD works great. Buttons on front panel are small and hard to see, but I like this machine. Remote has Open/Close as some less expensive players now don't have this anymmore.

BD 85K Panasonic Blu-Ray Player w/Streaming. Blu-Ray is excellent, streaming is so so.

It really is about provider which is Panasonic Vieracast which has a slow network. It is slow on Netflix, but it does have Youtube (we know most people don't want it, but we do) which is rare.

I've got two Panny BD65s, two Samsung 5500s and I'm waiting for a new Panny BD110. Of the four I have active the Sammy 5500s are far better at streaming NF than the Pannys. What I'm having a problem with is getting my BD players to stream 5.1 sound. Hence the purchase of the BD110. I know that one will do it, I just hope it upscales better than the BD65s.
