Anybody had experience with the Twonky Media Server, if so what are your thoughts?

REASON = would like my Panasonic PVR DMR-BWT835GZ and/or Panasonic Viera TV TH-L50E6Z DLNA services to see my iMac or my iMac to see my Panasonic devices so I can stream video content from my iMac libraries to the Panasonic TV via my Apple (AX & AE) WiFi home network.

My Panasonic gear will connect to my iMac network to connect to the internet but the Panasonic does not see my iMac held media libraries.

cheers

I use Universal Media Server for what it's worth, it's fairly robust and full-featured.  Plex is pretty popular too.

Plex seems to be the best. The VF modems seem to have Twonky built in.

Thank you so much KevinL. Downloaded & Installed UMS and it worked straight out of the box for both my Panasonic devices without any tweaking of the profiles. It recognised and read and played (video & music) all my media libraries on my iMac over my wireless Apple network. (Most of my stuff is in mp4, flv & m4a.)

Oh and you forgot to mention it is free.

Cheers from a happy camper.
