Accessing Media around the house

I've been playing at this for a little while and can't seem to find a solution that works well for me. I want to be able to access media (video, audio and pics) from locations around the house. Here's the set up so far.

1) Television with AppleTV connected
2) Television with PS3 and Wii connected
3) Television with nothing connected
4) Wireless connection with good bandwidth throughout the house
5) 3 1TB hard USB Hard Drives, one of which is NAS
6) 2 laptops (used regularly) one Netpad (buggy) currently being used as a media server.

I would like to be able to access media across the 3 TVs. I know I will have to add something to the 3rd TV. When the Netpad works I am able to access from both the Apple TV and the PS3.

Ideally I would like to have the netpad work without the bugs but I can't seem to make that happen. I am getting DNLA errors on the PS3, but I believe this has to do with the issues on the Net Pad.

Is there a Media Centre device that anyone has used that perhaps I can add to the 3rd TV and access from the other 2 TVs?

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
