One of the stated benefits of the DLNA standard is cross-platform support; that is, devices certified as being DLNA-compliant should have no trouble interacting with each other. To test out the mini in this regard, I tried it with a DLNA certified Twonkyvision media server that I have running on my network. When I fired up Twonkyvision on my Kuro Box, a new server was displayed in the main DLNA menu of the mini (see Figure 9).
Figure 9: DLNA Server Selection
The mini's interaction the Twonkyvision server worked well, with little visual differences compared to the Buffalo DLNA server. However, one benefit of the Twonkyvision server that I did notice was Internet Radio. Twonkyvision's server listed a selection of Internet Radio stations that were usable from the mini, but Buffalo's server had no such capability (see Figure 10).
