OK I tested it and found the following, feel free to correct me:

DTS support: I couldn't get it to output DTS, it converted it to 128kbps MP3
Automatic plugin download/install: Couldn't see the option, it just says "open plugins folder"
Unlimited folders on PS3 & Xbox: I guess it's true because you can't see the folder structure in the first place
Maximum network bandwidth setting: Where is it?
DVD support: I put a DVD in the drive and tried to add it but it only recognized hard drives, not my disk drive
AC-3 remuxing: It is converting AC-3 to 128kbps MP3
3D SBS video support: Confirmed it works

So for now they are all no except unlimited folders and 3D

I really want to try UMS on my Synolgy NAS but finding it impossible to use as it doesnt have a web based console. Any ideas if there will be web console for NAS users?

Yes, we're working on it and it should be finished pretty soon :)

On the comparison page it says Serviio doesnt have "web interface so it supports even devices without DLNA support"
This feature was done over a year ago called Serviio MediaBrowser - http://serviio.org/component/content/ar ... diabrowser
So it works on PS4 and iOS products very nicely based on HTML5
You can also adjust the bitrate based on network speed.

With PLEX, you can download/install plugins with its web ui

I guess we can mark the Serviio web support as partial since it's only in the paid edition and it's a plugin, albeit a bundled one - we don't list the features in our plugins on the comparison page either.

Thanks for the info :)

Interested to know if it's possible. Or does ATV even support DLNA?
ATV3 has several apps in the app store that support DLNA. However, when I use ATV3 to connect to my Windows UMS server for some reason none of the apps can display folder structure (says no folders or files). I tried several apps and they all fail with the same symptoms. My PS3 works correctly though.

I think you meant ATV4. Apple TV3 doesn't have an app store. Apple TV4 does have an app store, I tested Infuse and it work fine (including displaying the folder structure) with UMS 5.3.1.

As for AT3, you would need to use a phone or tablet running a DLNA application that supports AirPlay. I use nPlayer with great success, but Skifta, Infuse, and TwonkyBeam all work as well. (My iPad/iPhone runs the DLNA client and transmits the audio/video to the Apple TV using AirPlay).
