This s the Seagate reply to DLNA. it is unbeliable that NAS110 is not DLNA compilant
Seagate Support on facebook
I researched your question. The BlackArmor NAS 110 does indeed support DLNA. 16 novembre alle ore 22.40
Unbeliable. I was buy it because it is sold with DLNA full access and certified for use with DLNA. I'll my money back.

it is true. All NAS series do not work with DLNA, I just contacted the technical support and they let me know that NAS are not DLNA compatible, It is a fraud.
Please help me so to sending this message to any client.

to all NAS consumers:
actually is more than one week that I spoken with DLNA certification organization and Seagate technical support, and the situation is very critical. becasue they tell me that depend of files type.
I donot understood what they waht to doing but I'm very tired about.

Yes there is a very good solution: get out! you waste your money.
Infact the DLNA compilant work only on uncompressed files.
There are several trouble about NAS110 and after months fighting both Seagate support and DLna.org , this is the last solution.
Forget Seagate and by something else better.
Looking also becasue DLNA compilant not meaning nothing becasue they can not test the devices and making consufion anout consumer.
It is very strange becasue it is only a protocol (sotware) to adjust, but up now there never solve it.

Well, of course it is depending on the file format. Because for a device to be dlna certified it only has to support jpg for pictures, lpcm for audio and mpeg2 for video files. It may support more file types, but does not need to. That is the main reason dlna is so lame. Dlna certified does not tell you if it is actually usefull. In my case i am not sure if it is the tv that does only support the dlna minimum requirements or if it is the BlackArmor 220, or even both. Conclusion -> dlna sucks, and every DMS or DMP producer who only fullfillst the minimum requirements of dlna but sells his product as working media server/media player sucks too imo.
