My preference would be to see MCE functionality in more devices. I bit the bullet and got three XBOX slims, but it would have been nice to see a Roku or Samsung TV app.
Anyway, DLNA is not the droids you are looking for...

Still a DLNA solution would be a lot cheaper and would cut across more product (phones, tablets, TV's) giving any network based tuner a broader market as a computer would not be necessary. Also most DLNA compliant devices have apps on them too. Personally I have never found an app on a TV that I liked better than going directly to the company web site; specifically Netflix (and that includes the interface in WMC) but Amazon's prime service was no cakewalk direct or as an app.

For DRM, there are extensions generically called "Link Protection" and embodied in the DTCP-IP/WMDRM-ND specs (maybe others/different names at this point, this was a few years ago). The classic examples are windows media extenders/xbox media extenders. AFAIK there are no shipping TV's/media players certified to replace those devices. Whatever one thinks about DRM, it is a requirement of the content providers in many parts of the world.
