Which TV media player to replace WDTV Live?

I've had a WDTV Live for a few years and it's been great but I've recently updated my server to W7 and they don't play nice together. I used to simply point the box at the XP windows shares and it would list and play anything in the folders, but networking and security changes by MS mean that no longer works and the fixes out there are complicated and unreliable.

I've gone back to running Tversity which I used to use with an old Dlink media player but I don't like having to run a streaming server, and it's throwing up other problems with the meta tags in mkv downloads.

So, is there anything else out there that:

1. Is wireless and plugs in via HDMI.
2. Accesses W7 shares directly without running a streamer.
3. Plays all the usual video formats.
