Media Extender / ISO Streaming Suggestions?

I have been using my PS3 to stream movies from my media server. It cant stream ISOs which sucks for ripping large quantities of movies. I am looking for a media extender that can stream ISOs, MP3s, and Netflix. What do you guys recommend?

Either software or hardware? Right now im leaning towards hacking an apple TV

Dont rip ISOs, look into MTS video files,

its what all the cool torrenters use for 1080 blu ray rips into 4gb file sizes.

Ok, then i need a media extender to play that

Hard drives are cheap, my time is not.
How long does it take to convert a normal length blu ray movie? Ehh then I need to get a rig to do the converting - all I have is a work laptop.

Thinking about it again, I like ISO. Quickest and easiest I can easily put 2T on my server which would hold my 100 gig of music and 200 DVD ISOs, if i decide to move on the MTS it would nice if supported that too. I am not looking for quality movies, just quick way to store the movies with the least amount of time investment. For quality Ill watch the actual Blu-Ray but few things are worth it - so far just Band of Brothers and maybe Zombieland.

The Ps3 plays it, thats what I have been using.

I run a Windows Homeserver based system and can run 2x ps3s running the same video file flawlessly at the same time.

popcorn hour wont do netflix, neither will the popbox but it's rumored they might add that(see my thread for my review). I'd looking into the WDTV+ for your needs.
