After finally getting my parents LG "smart" Blu Ray player connected to the internet, I found that most of the apps are now no longer usable and theres nothing in the "app store" for it. So I'm wondering what else I can use for them to get streaming media to their TV. Primarily it will be Plex but having access to things like YouTube and other free streaming services would be of use.
* Tried Chromecast - fail. Mainly due to my folks getting on in age and forgetting how to get it working
* PC/laptop - is an option as they do have a laptop but I'd need to use a 10m HDMI cable - also they'd get confused when one wants to do emails and one wants to stream :)
* Apple TV - Never used one myself, believe it supports Plex but what else is available on it for free ?
* Roku 3 - Similar to the Apple TV - whats out there ?
Whatever path we look at, it needs to be relatively well supported for a while, as it will just do their heads in to have "no longer supported" flash up on their screen after 6 months use :-p
