DLNA with Sony BDP-S370
Ok, got my Sony BDP-S370 courtesy of rec from John and discounted price from Richer Sounds
Watched Inception - marvelous - particularly looking forward to watching it again without having to turn sound down at times for Mrs SS
I've hooked it up with a wireless bridge to get internet to it and watched a few iplayers progs and I now want to use it as a media centre.
Tried plugging my Desire in as a USB device - got recognised but every single folder I tried to play video/music from said - unplayable files.
I've installed ServiIO as a DLNA server on my PC and the sony acknowledges it but give the the same - unplayable files when I use it to browse folders on my PC.
What files/format will this thing actually play?

I am still thinking about getting one of these myself - I'm still using my sumvision media player but may move that into our bedroom or one of the kids and use the Sony as my main player - still can't make up my mind !!

Well at £80 from Richer - its a good deal I think (given that cheap blu-ray only players are £50)
It obviusly doesn't play everthing over a LAN but its got potential

According to your link, DivX HD isn't supported over DLNA. MPEG-4 is, but Sony doesn't mention whether it's ASP or AVC.

Now I've stopped fiddling with it - its seems fine
It plays back xvid so that's my main criteria sorted.
It seems to pick up file names from somewhere other than the filename title so I'll have to find out where it gets that info from
ServiIO has a transcoding fuction but I've switched it off to see what happens natively first and when I find a file that I want to watch that doesn't play - I'll try switching it on and see what happens
