The TV will stream movies from my PC via DLNA, but the Blue-Ray Player won't! It will display photos and play music, but not movies! It will find the files in the PC Folder, but wont play them!
Oblivian: Out of curiosity, whats the requirement to send it to the BD player vs directly to the TV? It only adds more processing hops. As you have find, the BD player formats are garbage.
And FYI, I've changed my method since that thread. The BD player hardly gets used (sadly, was more a dual HDMI to work with my single input TV and amp at the time which have since been replaced) since it was as you found.. crap with DLNA and media formats other than stored on a F32 stick.
I now use primarily the ST50 built in media player (which albeit cludgy.. works), and XBMC on my PC as the uPNP host. Serviio was being buggy and eating all my ram up trying. XBMC seems to throw anything at the built in player just fine, and doubles as a smartphone controllable output from the PC to the TV for anything it can't play.
stevemat: I was trying to get DNLA going on Blue-ray player as all AV goes through my Yamaha 673 amp, I can get it working on TV but it means changing inputs on the TV, and this confuses wife / kids
Oblivian: *shrug* I'm using optical/coaxial out to the amp from the tv.. so its no an issue since the 5.1 is passed through from any media format with it via the STs player. (With the advantage of no buffering and ability to skip)
