That's very good to hear! But that creates the need for digikam running on my 
NAS!? The images are there, the database is (i.e., will be) there, so it's no 
fun to turn on the PC just to have digikam load the images from the NAS and 
send it to the tablet. The NAS is right there to do such things:) Another 
issue: can you do things like filter via tags (only stored in digikam's 
database) via DLNA?
Very interesting subject, also slightly off topic in this thread...

Can you give some details about how the uniqueHash is created?

Thanks (for your reply, and for digikam!)
