    I have a D-Link DSM-520 UpNP media server that I used to use with my PC. Since I moved all my media to my new Mac I would like to find some way to get it to work with OSX. It came with software for the PC, but not MAC unfortunately so I'm pretty lost (especially since all setup instructions refer to windows only settings and apps). I would also rather not have to buy media server software. Any suggestions?

    Also, I know I could just run bootcamp, but I'd rather not have to switch OS's every time I want to watch a video or listen to music. And I did try it with VMware fusion...didn't work :(

    Try PS3 Media Server (http://ps3mediaserver.org/forum/), free and it works very well with DSM-520 once you create a good .conf file.
