For example, Figure 6 shows a photo directory listing using the DLNA server.

Figure 7 shows the same directory when connected to the "Buffalo MediaServer" (PCast) server.

In both cases, still image support was pretty much what you'd expect: directories of images are displayed, and you can navigate around and view single images. Using the "Play" button on the remote, you can also view the entire directory in a slide-show fashion. All photos are scaled to fit the TV display, and according to the documentation, JPEG, BMP, GIF and PNG formats are supported, but only JPEG images are supported by the mini itself. The other formats require conversion via the Buffalo-supplied PC Server software (which occurs on the fly during playback).
As I roamed around the various menus and directories presented to me, I was impressed with the interaction speed. Menus and options were presented quickly, and reacted to my remote commands immediately. This was in contrast to many of the other media player devices I've worked with, which all seemed to react very slowly to remote commands.
