watching movies on TV via regular network

TV that works over RJ-45

I had another post about firewall recommendation which has been broaden to routers. This would be for the purpose of having a place wired and protected so business and out of business living could run with no interruption.
There is an idea of having a nice NAS unit hosting GBs/TBs of photos and movies, besides other stuff.

This has initiated an idea of having a TV attached to the network via RJ-45 so we can watch stuff from that NAS (i.e. HP SmartMedia server or whatever compatible).

I did a bit of research and came across some Pioneer TVs and monitors that are DLNA compatible (never heard of that before).

Now I wonder about this whole networked TV thing - thinking about what would be the most acceptable standard today - and tomorrow.

The reason for this is that I'm sick and tired of wires around my regular TV (connected to a laptop). I want one CAT 5 cable, and that's it. The rest will be in the storage room.

Price - Well, in the past I came across some TVs in the range of 15K which are not what I dream about. I see these Pioneer things being anywhere between 3,500 and 5,000 which may be acceptable if I find it working well.

What I hate about all those LCD and Plasma and anything else TVs today is the pixel distortion while something is moving on the screen. I know that some are better than the other ones and that's what I want, besides this network capability.

Do you know anything about this (TV and network) and what would be the best route to take in making my working and living space nice and clean while running things quietly and smoothly?
