    Hi there, I'm running 3.2.1 Release 2 on this 112.

    JPEGs stored on the device are displayed as expected.

    Alas, I'm unable to display JPEGs larger than 1024x768 using the DLNA App. Once I tap a JPEG whose width or height are above said dimensions, the box displays just a 'broken symbol' (a square with a zig-zag line, I don't know what it's called).

    Accessing the resource directly with a browser (built-in and from other machines) displays the JPEGs correctly. Anyone else experiencing this ?

    PS: I'm using ushare on a FreeBSD machine, fwiw. So, if noone else has this problem, I'll assume something's broken with my setup.

    I had same problem, so I phoned nearest Sony centre for advice. They told me the software within the tablet cannot open photos bigger than the ones you mentioned. Just go to apps - market - and type in dlna. There are loads of free apps you can download to view photos, its trial and error, if it doesn't do what you want, just delete it, but the one that worked for me was avia tv. Hope that helps!
