It's not a question of whether DLNA is or is not simplistic. It's a question of whether it works when people use this device, and specifically when people use it with the native capabilities of whatever is hosting or storing the media. Saying what's better sidesteps the issue. It would be better for me to ignore the WD and use a powerful desktop computer attached to my TV instead. Unless you factor in cost. In that case, it's better not to need to find any dedicated server program or anything else that's not included for free.

Yes, it has DLNA support. Weird that it was omitted in the specs.
Basically it's the same as the live non-plus version but with NetFlix support.

I used to use DLNA, but now I ONLY use the network connectivity.
If I had an external HD directly connected, it might be more helpful since I think the WDTV has some indexing features when using DLNA, but all my files are now on my NAS.

I've been wondering the same thing, only I have Windows XP Media Center. I'd like to be able to DVR shows on the PC and watch them on my regular TV. I'm starting to think I should just have a dedicated PC for the TV.

Skipping back and forth doesn't work well over DLNA. My Blu-ray player supports that, but it takes longer to figure out the skip location and advance the video stream than the time of the skip. I'm happier with my WD without DLNA. I do wish it could skip 30 seconds, and I'm going to explore if that is possible with wdlxtv firmware.
