That is, is there anything I need to do on top of ohnet to support DLNA specifically, or is that all already baked in, so to speak?

ohNet is a UPnP stack, capable of publishing or consuming services over UPnP. My understanding of DLNA is that it is a set of rules governing the behaviour of product classes, including some that use UPnP. These rules are not open; you have to pay a substantial sum to access them. You don't require certification of DLNA compatibility to offer software providing or using a UPnP AV media renderer.

I suspect DLNA is irrelevant for you.

Your initial question suggested that you want to implement a UPnP AV media renderer for photos and want to control media renderers (both yours and external) for audio. The UPnP forum have defined a collection of services (effectively classes with methods and member variables) which describe the functionality a media renderer should provide. ohNet provides classes which represent these services plus code to identify and communicate with other providers or consumers of these services.

Another way of putting it is that ohNet provides everything you need to build your own media renderer. It does not however provide the full media renderer.
