Computer server software must be installed on the computer to share files using DLNA. Nero MediaHome Essentials is supplied with all LG DLNA certified devices but other PC Server software can be used as well.

Devices must be DLNA Certified to use this feature.

Certain file types may be restricted and copy protected files may not function properly.

PC compatibility with DLNA/File Sharing
