Although the BDP5200/12 works as a combined control-point and renderer using the remote and on screen display, it does not announce itself as a upnp / dlna renderer on the network! This means that it's not detected by stand alone control-points like Linn Kinsky, Bubble or similar apps, which is disappointing:mad:
I guess this is due to the player not complying to the upnp/dlna standards...

Ok, I see now that it's certified as a DMP only :( I found this white paper that explains all about dlna: http://www.allegrosoft.com/UPnP_DLNA_White_Paper.pdf. Here a DMP is described like:
"Digital Media Player (DMP). Finds content offered by a DMS and provides playback and rendering capabilities. DMPs are not visible to other devices on the network such as DMCs.."
On the other hand, my LG ST600 is also certified as a DMP only, but in fact it also functions as a DMR (Digital Media Renderer). Seems like LG is more generous that Philips when it comes to dlna.....

suggest you use twonky media when you wanna push content to BDP5200.
and you can use MyRemote/ Simplyshare also

Pushing media to the 5200 works fine with Simpleshare , but music plays only song by song, so you have to start each number in your playlist(e.g on your iPad) manually, which is very unfortunate!
