Options for playing video content on TV

The other month, I bought an Apple TV. It wasn't long before it was then sold on because I couldn't be bothered with all of the video conversions. I've been thinking of buying a Playstation 3 however the last time I had one, I kept getting copyright messages and it would bail from the video. From what I understand, this still occurs on current PS3s when playing external video files (from USB or media server). Does this kind of thing happen on an XBox?

I'm thinking of just buying a Mini DisplayPort to HDMI adapter for my MBP (or doing the same with my HP NAS) and plugging it directly into the TV. However this will be cumbersome.

Can anyone offer some options for either streaming data directly from a HP NAS or via an external hard drive? Prior to the Apple TV nonsense I used a Raspberry Pi and if it wasn't for aesthetic reasons, I'd probably still use it for that purpose.

Thanks for any help or opinions.
