Short answer is *maybe*. Technically you can run a DLNA server that Olive can stream the music data off the network. There are a couple of complications because
* although DLNA is a standard protocol, each device has varying capability and not all devices work with each other. Many DLNA servers tweak their software to work with well known clients such as Sony PS3, XBox, or Nintendo Wii.
* I don't know of any good and reliable DLNA server on a Mac. Although I use Mac daily professionally and personally, I run Windows 7 for my music server. JRiver MC on Windows is very flexible and solid system. JRiver is also a DLNA server, but the usual caveat applies as previously explained about whole DLNA technology.
Youll need a UPnP music server (software) compatible with Mac, a router and a controller (iPod type device). The router will interface with the media renderer (the Olive) via Ethernet (or wireless, but that would be less desirable than wired). The controller will interface wirelessly with the router. The server will be installed on your Mac or on a Network Attached Storage device (NAS). Everything will be tied to your in-home network (via the necessary Wep Key or WPA code specific to your router).
The Olive product will almost certainly provide you with specific directions, including the required additional hardware and software.
