      In generai I like dsm-520 a lot. Still 3 major wishes:
      1. d-sub or dvi output for pc monitor. Sometimes I’d like to use this equipment separately.
      2. screen saver. Keeping receiver on all day long on mu plasma burs static characters in. I dont like it!
      3. D-Link server software is too slow, If you have 5000+ tracks or so. In this case I recommend for example TwonkyMedia server.

    Small correction about screen saver. DSM has one, buit there are situatins, when it doesn’t swich on for some reason in conjunction with playing movies. They just have to remove this bug.
