Streaming H.264 files on Bravia EX series

I already had a PS3 and a Humax HDR, both of which have DLNA capabilities. But when I got a new Sony Bravia KDL-40EX503 TV, I gave it a whirl to see what it would stream and what it wouldn't. Sony's documentation on the topic is predictably sparse, but it did imply support for AVC/H.264 and MPEG2 encoded HD video. I was therefore disappointed to find that only the SD MPEG2 files on my ReadyNAS Duo could be accessed through the Bravia's UI. The H.264 encodes would not show up, now matter what container they were in.

Humax HDR video playback

Having recently acquired a Humax HDR-Fox T2 (a Freeview+HD PVR for the uninitiated), I have been spending some time exploring its capabilities.
