Hi All,

I'm not sure if this is the correct section of the forum that I should be writing in but I'll give it a shot.

Today I've received a Seagate GoFlex Home NAS Box which I've transferred all my films, music, etc on to.

Usually if I want to watch a film that is stored on my laptop, on my TV, I connect it via a HDMI cable.

Is there anyway, or any device, that would allow my TV (Logik HDReady) to become wireless and watch the films directly from the NAS box? Even something to plug in to my DVD player for instance.

I've seen my friends do this via an xbox but I'd rather not purchase on of these as I am not a gamer.

Any information would be much appreciated.

Kind Regards,
Em

It's a Logik LOG32LW782

I'm not sure whether it has the capability to or whether there are any DVD/Bluray Players out there that would allow me to do the same thing.

You are correct, the TV does not appear to have any networking functions. Most devices like a blu-ray player should have some type of media player. I would assume SONY would as my SONY GoogleTV does. If it doesn't there should be an app in the store that would.

I believe the Ruko boxes do have a media player. In fact there was an article in a computer magazine in the US that has such application to allow you to use the Ruko player in such fashion. I would suggest contacting Roku directly to confirm. I do believe Ruko has a subscription like TiVo though.
