For playback I use my PS3.  It does fast forward/rewind quite well...
It has 1.5x, 10x, 30x, and 120x...  I do use it w/ gige and that is a
necessity as w/ HD content, it will read at 10-30MB/sec when seeking...
I have tried it over wireless (the built-in 11g and a 11n repeater) and
it really doesn't work that well.  I use a simple web interface with
links to the raw MPEG2/AC3 MPEG-TS stream.
