DLNA Support for DNS-323 with other media devices
« on: March 12, 2009, 07:16:10 PM »


will the DNS-323 works with LCD TV Samsung (Samsung LN52A850) that supports DLNA for media?

UPnP AV server is already enabled and the firmware is 1.05.

I had posted exactly the same question for the same TV. Haven't got a response. I posted the question to the D-Link tech support; it's not easy getting them to answer...

Well... if you can find a linux based open source DLNA server with a web interface, and have some programming skills, you can try and compile it for ARM and run it on the 323. :) 

If I had those skills, though, I'd probably be working for D-Link.

I have a Sony KDL40Z4100, which supports DNLA. 

I found that apparently the TV only supports DNLA with respect to image files, not video or audio files.  It can play back a slide show of images it detects in my UPnP directory, but it will not detect any music files on the DNS-323 at all.  Apparently it can only playback audio files from a USB device plugged into its USB port.  It also cannot play back videos files over DNLA. 

I figure I must need to get some intermediary device, either an appliance like AppleTV or Popcorn Hour, or else build an HTPC that can stream files from the DNS-323 to the home theater receiver I have attached to the TV.  If I go the HTPC route, I may end up just hosting files directly on that box, and repurpose my DNS-323 as a backup device or find some other suitable use for it.

On the plus side, the DNLA just worked flawlessly for the supported filetypes, and I had no trouble getting the TV to see the UPnP server and finding the image files or playing them as a slideshow.

twonky via fun_plug is DLNA certified I think.

I have it running and it works great... though I stream to a DSM 750
