Very well, I have no clue.


I currently stream with Itunes over airplay.


But I keep reading about DNLA.


Now, I have just purchased a Pioneer VSX-1021, which I believe supports DNLA. Then the Panny-110 Blue Ray does as well. As I shop TV's some models support DNLA.


I thought DNLA had to do with audio from PC to receiver. Why do the Blue Ray and TV need it.


Can anyone help me get a basic understanding so I know what I need to try and learn. I always find the hardest part of researching something is getting the basic gist, so I can actually make heads and tails of the information I am reading.

DLNA works not only with audio but video as well. Receiver can play music from DLNA server, and BR player can play movies from that server. Unlike Airplay, playback is initiated by receiver or BR player, not by DLNA server (which plays the role of a structured storage for music and movies).
