Windows 7: Looking for NAS/Samba streaming TV player

Looking for NAS/Samba streaming TV player

I am looking for a media player that is capable of streaming from my local network (NAS or Samba shares). I have not been able to find a device that does this outside of the Android world. I have looked into Apple TV, Roku 3, WD TV Live, etc. All of them stream internet based media like Netflix. That is not what I am looking for. I have tried an Android based media player and found that it is up-scaling the HD videos it plays. I would prefer not to build a home-theater PC as it can get pricey. I used to use my modded Xbox one running XBMC to stream local media, it was perfect. But due to its age, it obviously cannot play HD videos. If anyone has or had a modded Xbox with XBMC than you know exactly what I am looking for.

Does anyone know of any device that does this? I really appreciate the responses as this one is really frying my brain.

Moderators: If there is a better section for this post please move it for me, thanks
