Under Consideration

Compatibility > Support for media streaming - UPNP or DLNA (ex: Kodi, Plex, Sonos, PlayStation...)

Thanks to Lima I now have a 1 TB networked hard drive with lots of media in it. I (naively) assumed Lima would support media streaming.

So, how about it, support for streaming media - UPNP or DLNA?

no - at the Moment just via Windows/Mac Client or the App on your Smartphone...

Videos/Photos/Music can also be accessed by Chromestick (via mobile-phone)

Yes you are correct, no access for sonos, streaming to smart tv is desperately needed, I currently have every media file on lima but also have to have anything I want to stream to tv around the house copied over to a separate dlna server, if this is not rectified soon my two lima devices will be appearing on eBay

Don't trust Lima with your expectations about how good their devices will be. Wait a few more years, see if any of their products actually make it out of beta before Lima releases a newer version and stops supporting the original.

I made this feature request two years ago - it's still 'under consideration' and they're about to release the Lima Ultra: "Lima Ultra - everything you expected the original Lima to be."

Lima - A shoddy product from a shoddy company.

I am also very disappointed by the lack of device support for Lima. I like being able to store my files in my own cloud, and the Lima itself seems to do the job pretty well. But if all I can do with them is retrieve them or access them using the mediocre Lima app (which doesn't even seem to stream reliably internally, even when my wifi network is reporting very high speeds), its utility is pretty limited. In addition to a Sonos client/service, an Apple TV app would be extremely good at the very least, since not everyone has Chromecast, and since I expect that Airplay requires some additional hardware or licensing.
