Streaming wtv/media center recordings to Bluray

I use windows media center w/ cable cards to do all my tv recording. I currently use 2 xbox's as media center extenders to watch the stuff. I'd like to watch things on a 3rd tv, but would rather not buy a 3rd xbox. So I see most bluray players are dlna devices now. However, reading reviews, it's unclear to me which actually support playing wtv format files natively. Some say they do, but then later reviews say they don't work properly. Some say Sony bluray players work fine, but then I see a message that a firmware update killed wtv playback.

Does anyone know of a bluray player with flawless wtv dlna playback? I'd rather NOT transcode stuff - I realize if I do that I can probably use pretty much any player. But my recording pc isn't a beast as far as processing power goes, so not sure how well transcoding would even work on it. I also don't need any 3d capability in the device, nor any wifi, really just something that plays normal bluray + wtv files.

I also realize that it won't play copy protected files, and I'm ok with that.

Have you looked at the Oppo players? I haven't explored mine for streaming yet, but I seem to recall it would.
