UPnP is an abbreviation for Universal Plug and Play. It can be used for easy networked administration and management of compliant devices. Some features are special for Audio/Video (A/V) devices.

The NMT devices features both a UPnP client and a server. The server is available through the NMT Apps package that requires an internal hard disk. With this, you can stream content to another UPnP device that can play it. The NMT UPnP client can pick up and play media from a UPnP Server such as MediaTomb, Twonky, PlayOn etc.

An external UPnP controller can be used to invoked basic play functionality remotely, such as Cidero for PC/Mac and PlugPlayer for iPhone/iTouch.


At present, the UPnP A/V Media Rendering possibilities are only basic.
