VPN set up for home network for devices that have no native VPN capability

I hope I'm using the correct terms!

I used to set up my main router so that it would put my entire home network on a VPN (eg. StrongVPN) but some people at home didn't like it as they became geo-blocked for local services. So I've reverted back to the usual internet service and for devices like PCs/laptops/Ipads/smartphones, etc. I set up the VPN connection on the device itself and then enable it whenever desired.

However, a handful of devices (example WDTV) have no ability to set up to connection through a VPN on their own. Is there some comparatively easy way to set something up for these devices so they can utilize my VPN service? Ideally I'd like to keep it on my 192.168.1.x network although if there's an easier way I'd be open to that.

I have a spare router flashed with DD-WRT if useful. I asked on the DD-WRT forum but the conversation was WAYYYY over my head technically.

Thanks for any suggestions!
