Question Media streaming devices

I'm currently using Microsoft Windows 7 Media Player to stream my videos to my A/V DLNA receiver. I'm looking for a standalone device that would take the place of Windows Media Player. This device would allow me to drag-n-drop my media files for it to steam. Does anyone has any recommendation? I do not want to have my computer on just so I can stream it to my DLNA A/V receiver.

I also have a Linksys E3000 router with a USB port for storage. Can I just hook up an external hard drive to this port and start streaming to my DLNA A/V receiver?

A few NAS boxes will do DLNA, the Readynas ones do for instance.

Thanks for the suggestion. I'll surely take a look at Readynas.

This product page for your router:

http://www.linksysbycisco.com/UK/en/products/E3000

Suggests it has a upnp av server built in to share content on devices connected to the USB port so it will probably work as you asked.
