    Just bought a Sony SMP-N100 at Costco for $99.

    Turns out I had to install a DLNA server on my iMac (TwonkyMediaServer)
    to get my files to show up on the unit. Plays every .avi file I throw
    at it, but does NOT like .mpeg, .mp4 or .mov. I'm using a direct
    ethernet connection, and there is no lag.

    I have not been able to get it to sucessfully play music from my iTunes
    collection (AIFF format), or display photos from iPhoto.

    Q1: Has any one sucessfully played music from iTunes with this unit?

    Q2: Has anyone sucessfully displayed photos from iPhoto albums with this unit?

    Q3: What's the best server software to use on my Mac with this unit?

    Q4: Should I stick with the Sony, or get something else like the
    Western Digital TV Live Hub? (I want to play as many video formats as
    possible, view my photos, and hear my music.)
