Ok so by the looks I will need to tftp boot the device from the backend
server and I can only do SD content. Does this mean I wont be able to view
ripped dvd's I have stored in my backend nfs share? Or are the 720X480? and
will work?

Also, is it true that in order to have this thing tftp boot I must use dhcp
with the backend or can I just have my dd-wrt be my dhcp router?
