If you need to leverage your own artist images to be exposed in the tiles, then Twonky is still a good choice (while no longer supported by the publisher).

Otherwise Minimserver is a very good DLNA server that can fill the B&O App tremendous gaps on this side.

BS Moment, BS Core, BG 4002, BC 4500, BS1, BL18, BL19, BL8000 + RCV1, A6, M5, M3, A1, P6 (tks Botty), H5, TR1

I totally agree. I use it for several years now after testing and switching between different DLNA servers. But this is the one to keep!

aside other functions, the App is a DLNA controller, no more no less. How good one finds it as DLNA controller depend starkly on the used DLNA server (such as Twonky or Minimserver or.................). But the B&o app has never been a DLNA server.

Sadly no matter how reliable the server the Moment will make it as unreliable as itself.

I know that, what I meant is that Minimserver offers many options to expose the collection by different criteria to ease music search, much more than what Twonky and other DLNA servers do. The B&O App simply leverages what the DLNA servers are exposing where I would have expected from a premium vendor App a minimum of processing/caching/indexing to provide a decent and richer UI.

That said, when iTunes compatibility is turned on in the App, it acts a an ad-hoc DLNA server isn't it ?

If it was a server one would expect other devices could also benefit from accessing this library, but they can't so I wouldn't call it a DLNA server.

As I understand it, it converts/presents the iTunes library as if it was a DLNA server source for the Moment.

We are almost saying the same thing. The B&O App, acting as a non discoverable DLNA server, streams the iTunes content to the DLNA renderer such as the Moment or any other B&O DLNA capable device configured in the App.

When using regular DLNA servers such as Minimserver, the B&O App acts as a controller between the DLNA server and the DLNA renderer.
