The Neuros folks really do seem to have their hearts in the right place. Both the electronics and the software have been opened. I'm running a beta firmware, and third-party firmwares (with some crazy features) are now available.
Another company that I like so far is Momitsu. I have their 880N networked DVD player. It arrived region-free. It is running uCLinux (on a Sigma Designs board). They use apache+tomcat for their network media server. When I emailed support, one of the responses was something like "Many of our users know more about our player than we do. If you have a hardware enhancement that you would like us to incorporate, please send photos along with a detailed description." They also read their tech support email on Saturdays.
