I finally got it! I could stream to my shiny new XOOM (but it takes some real tweaks). How to do it:
1) Get yourself a good player. Rockplayer and VitalPlayer (you'll need both read on).
2) Get a DLNA client
3) Remove the Android.conf,AirPlayer.conf and ipad.conf render files.
Now heres how it works for me. I use the (my own) client and browse the PMS. Then I start playing. Here I can select which player to use. Rockplayer can stream from PMS (but not if you need to transcode than it stutters) other players can't even do that. So Rockplayer is my no 1 choice if I don't need to transcode OR subtitles. If you're out of luck.
But the SharkHunter comes to the rescue. Some (my own again) clients can "download stream" which means that it places the file on the SDcard and then when the file is "big enough" it starts the player. Now Rockplayer is happy to stream this file but ONLY as long as the file was when RockPlayer started. Which if you don't want to wait for the full file is maybe a minute. Here Vitalplayer comes to the rescue and will be happy to continue to stream until the whole file is read.
I got into problems with the overlapping render conf file and stuff started only working 100% when I removed them (maybe I don't need to remove all 3 but hen agian why not).
So there you go Streamin to android from PMS! That's cool
Ps my SharkMote conf file should work for Rockplayer as well ds.
