Make a TV with only HDMI input able to receive streamed vide

I have an LG HDTV that has HDMI input but no ethernet input. The USB input is only able to receive photos and music. I have a Western Digital Media Player that has a hard drive. It can stream HD content from the player over a network that I want to be able to receive on this tv. The player is DNLP compliant.
I need to have a way for the tv to accept and interpret the stream so it can be seen on the tv through the HDMI input. I have a Roku. Roku told me that this device cannot receive a streamed signal. The Roku can attach to the tv through HDMI if there is any way to use that. I called Linksys and they told me that I would need a bridge attached to a media player that would then plug into the tv by HDMI. Is this the only way to do this or is there a simpler, less costly way of doing this?
