DLNA Testing

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).

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).
