The DSM-320 comes with software called a "media server" that runs on your PC and serves music, pictures, and video to the unit over your home network. Because the DSM-320 is UPnP compliant, it is compatible with any UPnP media server. Twonkyvision and TVersity make media servers that are superior to the media server that comes with the DSM-320. Twonkyvision ([...]) enables you to stream music from the Internet (you do this by adding Shoutcast or .m3u streams as playlists to the media server), and it also works with the Cidero media controller (see next paragraph). TVersity ([...]) allows you to stream music over the internet and watch internet TV, but at the time of writing does not work with the Cidero media controller. The Twonkyvision music server is a free download, and the full media server (for music, pictures, and video) is $10 - $20. The TVersity media server is a free download.
Another really cool UPnP compliant PC application that works with the DSM-320 is the Cidero media controller ([...]). This is a freeware Java program that allows you to control the DSM-320 from your PC. With it, for example, you can queue up any number of mp3 songs on your computer, or choose Shoutcast radio stations, and play, pause, stop, and shuffle them from your PC. I prefer controlling the DSM-320 this way as opposed to the television based GUI, because then I don't have to have the television on.Read more ›
The DLink Media Server software ships with this device and when used you end up not being able to play WMV, or ipod AAC files. Also high bitrate MP3 files won't play. The online content that comes with it is very limited and pretty much useless.
The TVersity Media Server adds support for WMV playback as well as ipod AAC, high bitrate mp3 and many many more formats. It also makes it possible to play virtually any online content and it comes with the ability to play all the movie trailers from ifilm on your TV as well as Radio and TV stations from around the world. Very cool stuff!
This is EXACTLY the product I needed. I have an ATI TV Tuner Card installed on my computer and over time have created a large collection of my favorite TV shows in mpeg format. I have the choice of sitting at my desk chair and watching these shows, or burning them to a DVD, then taking the DVD to the den and viewing the DVD on the large screen TV. No more "sneaker" net for me.
I chose the DSM-320 after pricing a brand new Windows Media Center computer with all the bells and whistles, and after pricing the separate hardware to build my own Windows Media Center computer. In both cases, the price difference is huge. Don't forget you would also have that new computer box in your den sitting next to everything else. Then I'd have to work out all the different detailed settings for the various video formats and sizes to view them correctly on my big screen tv, I have read many advice columns on this and didn't feel I would be up to this particular challenge after spending so much on a new PC.
With the DSM-320 I can watch any of my recorded television shows stored on my pc, listen to all of my own music stored on my pc, and view my great family and vacation photos stored on my computer, AND I can also easily access Internet Only Video, Music and Photos. Some for free, some for fee. It's truly EOD (Entertainment on Demand).
I am a computer consultant by trade and very familiar with networks, but I didn't have to be an expert to install the DSM-320. Here's what I did, and why...
Prior to its arrival I ran a new CAT5 cable from my dlink wireless router to my den where I planned to locate the DSM-320.Read more ›
I really enjoy the features and abilities of this device. Surround sound, Component video, S-Video, networkable, plays digital music, video, photos, etc. It looks nice in my entertainment center, has a cool remote, and it works.
Well with most features it does. At least all the important ones.
I'd get it if I didn't have it even with the knowledge I have now, just because it will be upgraded. I've bought several networking products through out the years from D-Link and they seem to get better and better with product updates and firmware fixes. This product still gets 5 stars from me, because of who makes it and what it can do.
