Link on cyberlink website directs to signing up as a reseller or partner, but no indication of how to make a retail purchase.

I've abandoned this exercise in futility. So far the only client I've found that allows download from DLNA/UPnP servers is the PS3.

I've tried SoftDMA, and a couple of Windows Media Center plugins. Also tried the DLNA clients in Panasonic PVRs and have to say they are all... lacking.

Bad browsing experience, the content is not presented in a logic manner, they are all very slow even over a gigabit connection.

That was my initial experience too, I was used to Media Center and iTunes where the client arrange material in a sensible manner. The DLNA world shifts that resposiblity over to the server, which I've had mixed experiences with.

Panasonic DLNA server presents content nicely, especially for Windows Media Player (11).

Does SoftDMA actually allow download as well as stream? The advertising for SoftDMA 2 says it does, I was wondering if that applied to SoftDMA? Where did you get it?

You can now purchase this from their website, but be warned it's expensive, clocking in at $69 (NZD), however, it is the only DLNA client I've found that supports DLNA download. Link from their site (Cyberlink @ http://www.cyberlink.com/products/softdma/overview_en_NZ.html?&r=1) for the trial takes you to cnet.
