I generally have HTPCs hooked directly to the TV for playback. DLNA interfaces are awful.

I forgot to add something.
I don’t have experience with DLNA. What I did so far to try it, I pull music from my A/V server to Denon3808Ci and later on I created short playlist and pushed music from computer to Denon3808CI. It worked fine so I expected similar result with video. I can’t test it with video because I have no display with DLNA.

I like the HTPC experience.
With the cost of PCs being so low I prefer to have an HTPC for each television. These are low cost Atom ION PCs and are very capable of 1080P delivery without stuttering, etc (with the correct drivers). You can even get them small enough where they can simply be mounted behind the flat panel. Since you don’t want to replicate content, have a fairly decent server that’s capable of serving the content to multiple HTPCs concurrently. All content stored on the server and streamed to the HTPC clients over gigabit lan.

Thanks for feedback
