1. Twonkymedia (Music, Video, Pictures)
2. Maxtor Shared Storage+
3a. Netgear Mp101 - music
3b. Zensonic Z500 - music, video, pictures
3c. Rudeo Client(PDA) - music

NB: The Netgear Mp101 worked flawlessly on 4.2Beta1, after upgrading Twonky to 4.2RC1 it now has the (old) problem of pausing and skipping to next track during playback :cry: .
Now for the good news :D 4.2RC3 has addressed the Mp101 issue of pausing and skipping. In the Clients section I have my Mp101 Ip address mapped to Netgear Mp101 RTP. It no longer reports File Not Found and plays flawlessly. Note, you MUST restart the server after saving the client changes!

Cheesehead

I currently use the built-in mediaserver of my Synology DS-207 Diskstation but intend to replace it with Twonkyserver.

My streaming clients are:

1) Pinnacle Showcenter 200
(Used for movie watching and photo viewing)
2) Logitech Squeezebox (with Slimserver)
(Used for music listening - MP3)
3) Windows Media Player 11 on Vista
(Used for music listening)
4) iTunes client on Vista
(Used for music listening and Ipod loading)

I am also looking for a good (audio) streaming client to use on Windows XP.
