Streaming media files from your PC to your living room isn't exactly what we'd call new, but D-Link is announcing its DSM-510 Wireless Media Player as being one of the first devices that can tackle high-def content. The player connects to your home network via an Ethernet or wireless (802.11g) connection (it can only do HD over a wired connection) and has an HDMI output as well as support for optical digital audio. On the video side of things, it can stream WMV9, MPEG-1/2/4, AVI, and XVID files. It's nothing worth getting worked up over, but if you have $239 to spare, the player goes on sale today.

DISCUSSION

If I can buy a $60 Divx DVD player, why does it cost at least another $120 for a simple networking option?

I should be able to get a networking divx player for <$80, especially if I don't care about disc playback. It should be updatable with new codecs by new firmware versions. Dammit.
