iTunes to my understanding doesn't support DLNA. Remember almost everything they do is proprietary.
That is correct. An iTunes server and a DLNA server are two different things. The 820 only supports DLNA and Airplay.
The good news: many NAS units can run both an iTunes server and a DLNA server.
If the OP's NAS can also run a DLNA server, pointed to the same media library on the NAS as the iTunes server, then the 820 could stream using DLNA (i.e. the "PC" input on the 820). Although the OSD on Yamaha AVRs will easily navigate the directories from the DLNA server, the Yamaha App (iOS/Droid) IMHO works spectacularly for this purpose as it does not require the TV to be turned on. Navigating a browser to the AVR's IP address will provide similar capability using virtually any device (PC/Pad/Phone/TV) with a screen.
Alternatively media can be "pushed" to the 820 using Airplay from a computer running iTunes or an iOS device.Edited by bluechunks - 6/28/13 at 6:58am
