I'm debating purchasing a Roku or a Boxee. Any suggestions would be appreciated - I am mainly going to be using it for Amazon Prime and Whiskey Media streaming.
Yeah, if you have a PS3 (especially) or a 360, you could just run something like the PS3 Media Server from your linux, OSX, or Windows desktop and connect to it from your console. I have a 32 terabyte file server filled with stuff that I stream through PS3 Media Server (there are several other options, but I found its support of MKV containers and other files is more up to date than other options). And the best part is, you'll get all the content you can ever download to your computer, rather than just whatever some company wants to offer you in their proprietary service.
