Actually, for Macintosh El Gato makes a product called
EyeConnect that's in its second public beta - I don't
have any UPnP devices to test it with, but what it
does is to create a UPnP server on the computer it's
installed on, allowing one to share video (including
EyeTV recordings), music & pictures from that computer
to UPnP enabled devices.


Adding UPnP support to SlimServer would be fantastic,
but would also make a SlimPlayer or Squeezebox 'less
necessary' if you could simply play the music back
through any UPnP capable device. There's the rub.
