That's totally outside the scope of this project and XBMC itself. The solution is to avoid products from companies that make use of DTCP DRM in their DLNA PVR's like Panasonic for instance.
Speaking of Panasonic their 2013 TV's at long last have been updated media player wise to handle most common media formats so the need for transcoding on those is minor unless it's a really old or obscure video format, older generation Panasonic's though are terrible and heavily reliant on transcoding.
LG have been pretty consistent over the years, their media player has always been decent without the need for special profiles. Though older models prior to 2012 series do lack DTS audio decoding.
Samsung appear to be getting worse each year in customizing DLNA requiring a specific profile to connect to the server, lots of complaints from off the shelf NAS owners who have old versions of Twonky (Western Digital My Book and others) that doesn't have the necessary profiles for Samsungs latest 2013 TV's.
Sony still erratic as ever, while Sony BD players may support most common formats their TV's are still a crazy mixed bag sometimes only doing the bare minimum, this article on Sony Japan
shows all the sets going back to 2007 (circle means supported).
Not sure on some other smaller players like Sharp or Toshiba but I hear Toshibas newest models do play most things.
I have newest Panasonic ST60 and LG LM7600 to test with.
