I'd like to know how to find a blu-ray dvd player that will stream Iphoto pics and Itunes playlists (using DLNA) from my Imac (OS X 10.6.8).

I needed a blu-ray dvd player and I thought it would be great to get it with wifi and the ability to stream from my Imac so I wouldn't have to get some external device like apple tv or roku.  I got an LG BP620 which uses Nero MediaHome 4 Essentials, so I installed that application on my Mac and the DVD player does stream from it, but only partially.  I get my Itunes by artist (but only for names A-C) - obviously I would like to not only get all the artists in my Itunes but really want to get the playlists.  I just can't get (or don't know how) to get Nero to share the Itunes playlists (the Itunes Music Library.xml file is greyed out if I try to select it for sharing) or even how to get it to share all the artists.  Furthermore, I can't get Nero to select the Iphoto library (also greyed out), so I don't know how to stream my photos to the DVD player either. 

If anyone can tell me how to use this version of Nero (4.0.0.18) to get to my Itunes playlists and Iphoto pics, that would be great.  Or maybe I just need to use something other than Nero (which I've tried reinstalling from the disk and LG website)
.  I tried Plex but couldn't get the DVD player to work with it (later I read a professional review that said Plex doesn't work with this DVD player).  Talking with LG was useless - they only say that Nero doesn't work with a Mac, despite the fact that the LG and Nero manuals both say they do.  Since asking the manufacturers may not be productive, how do you go about finding a good (and under $200) blu-ray DVD player that will efficiently stream Itunes (09, version 8.1.2) and Iphoto (09, version 8.1.2) from my Mac?
