So final answer...dedicated PC to deliver what you wanted? No other options you could find or tried?
I have not found any other options that gives me what I wanted. I think this is the most flexible way of going.

I have a Western Digital TV but it's limited to streaming media from my network, using Netflix or watching You Tube videos. Can't surf the web to, cannot get Hulu, and cannot stream from the broadcasters websites.

Apple TV from what I know can be hacked to run XBMC, but I'm still limited to streaming my own media from my network. I believe it will do Netflix, but the Cdn version not the US. There is a lot more content available on the US Netflix. Hulu is out since it's not available in Canada and web browsing is out as far as I know. Plus the added hastle of trying to hack it.

BoxeeBox - Don't know a lot about it. Can load XBMC on it but limited as above.

This for me, was the easiest, fastest way. I was online in 10 min after plugging it in. No O/S hacking. If I ever decide to stop using it, I have a full fledged Mac PC.

I'll find out tonight what VPN software is loaded on it. Like I said, I got a hold of a Mac Mini this week for testing....I'm borrowing it and the owner already loaded the VPN.

$78 year and you can do it. This is what I'm using on the Mac Mini.
