    Okay I don't have a DLNA HDTV but any 'DLNA certified' device should able to share or access media on the the PS3 and XBox 360, right? ... or am I missing something here.

    I found this nice tidbit on HTC's site but I still haven't been able to stream my media content through my xbox slim. Now it did locate my DirectV HD DVR but it just reads the files that I have saved in my queue.

    HTC Inspire? 4G at AT&T

    Has anyone else been able to stream their media files without using a 3rd party app? ... and yes I've used twonky in the past but would prefer not to

    HTC Media Link DLNA streamer review -- Engadget

    Some where there is a british review showing it streaming youtubes and even full length movies.... I am having trouble finding much info about the stateside version though.

    Whoa, our phones are supposed to have build in DLNA to stream to other devices? No way. I would love to see this work natively. I was able to stream media from my computer using the Windows 7 device shares, but to stream phone to my PS3 would be awesome!

    That looks interesting! I cancelled my cable Tv service and have been thinking about getting one of those Roku units for $80 to stream netflix and hulu plus. I wonder if I can skip the roku and wait for this and the huluplus/netflix apps to come out for android and stream those two services in HD using that device?

    Ill do you one better than that. Check out samsung blu-ray players that have the built in netflix app. You can use your account on 3 or 4 devices at once witout breaking any rules...

    Lets just say..my girl friend has not paid for cable in 3 months and we have plenty to watch at her house from SGU to lost to family guy, to monk to movies etc etc. The only things we miss are the history channel and food network when we are there....

    I have the same idea for my phone with the media port..except ill be taking that to hotel rooms with me (if they get netflix and if this thing lets you stream netflix to other tvs...)

    I wasn't able to get DLNA streaming to my PS3 to work using a native app, but I downloaded Skifta and was able to get it to work. Once activated, I could browse the songs, videos, and pictures on my phone using the PS3 controls.

    I am running into this problem with my ps3 as well. It is really annoying that I have to download a 3rd party app such as skifta. Although with skifta I keep getting an error message when I try and access my videos. Everything else works fine...

    Twonky works, but it's real choppy.

    I can stream from PS3 Media Server or my EMC NAS device (uses DLNA) to my phone with no issues. I haven't tried to stream from my phone to another device such as my PS3, but I assumed it had a DLNA client installed, not server.

    Older topic I know, but if anyone hasn't tried yet - I was very easily able to stream from my Inspire4G to my WDTV Live Hub. I haven't tried it on my PS3 or 360 yet. It was painless and didn't require any setup. I just turned the WDTV Live Hub on and my phone was already on WiFi on the network with my Hub and I just used the Connected Media app on the phone and streamed it to the Hub. The Hub then just displayed everything on the TV - I didn't even touch anything on the Hub other than turning it on. I need to check to see if it's that easy with the PS3 or 360.

    I was searching to see if I'm the only one who was having a problem streaming to PS3 and it seems so. I've always disliked DLNA and UPnP for that matter. I downloaded the trial of Twonky and on the first try got it streaming a full movie without any choppiness or buffering to my Apple TV 2. I take it that it's doing this over DAAP which has actually always worked for me which is totally different from my experiences with DLNA.
