At home I've been enjoying the ability to easily send pictures and videos from a Windows 8 device, such as my Surface, to a DLNA-compatible receiver elsewhere in the house, such as our Western Digital LiveTV Hub that's attached to our TV. No more pulling out the 15-foot HDMI cable!

The feature that makes this work is known as Play To. I covered this in Chapter 10 ("Media") of my book, and you can find a short introductory video here: http://channel9.msdn.com/Series/Introducing-Windows-8/Play-To.
