Media Share for Mac?

I use ps3mediaserver if I need media share.
Just got a Mac mini with mountain lion, and noticed media share is no longer available on my HR34. I've always been a PC guy, so not sure what steps I might need to take to get that back up and running with a Mac?
It works fairly well for photos and music. It's free, light weight, etc.

OS X does not come with a DLNA client. I have tried Twonky, EyeConnect and iSedora on my Mac. Of the three I like iSedora best. It works fine for music and photos, but the bit rate of video files often exceeds the maximum which Directv supports. I have been able to recode videos to a lower bit rate, but that takes time (the program I use, Video Hub, is no longer available). For watching video files I prefer to use my WDTV Live as a media client.
How does your WDTV connect to your Mac? Smb has been broken since lion came out for me.
