    Hello. I am about to buy a blu-ray player, and i have a couple of quesitons.

    I have a Samsung Plasma TV. Here are a couple of setup's that I have questions about.

    1. I have an external HD connected to my Computer in my Computer room. I buy a Blu-ray player with wireless capabilities. I connect to the blu-ray player wirelessly. If I have 1080p movies on the hard drive, will the connection be fast enough to stream to the blu-ray player, and not lose quality?

    2. I just have movies on my external HD, connect the external HD to my laptop, connect laptop to the TV.

    3. Is there a way that my external HD can connect directly to the blu-ray player? That way I dont have to use a computer to play the movies. I can just plug the harddrive into the blu-ray player and play that way. Is this possible?

    sorry for the long post, just trying to figure this out before i spend 500$

    thanks :)

    if you buy a ps3 I am pretty sure you can stream the movies from your computer to your ps3.
