Re: SOLVED: DLNA connection and database problems

I'm starting to dislike this one - now I know why it was the cheapest 802.11ac router on the market! At least the signal strength is better than the router the ISP gives out! Why Belkin thought it would be a good idea to block ports inside the network, meaning to open them you need to port-forward i...

Re: SOLVED: DLNA connection and database problems

Apart from Port Forwarding, I can't see how I can get everything to communicate via miniDLNA through the firewall. Also, I don't want to expose ports as well. I'm just checking on GRC.com how secure my system is without it on, and because the router responded to a ping it has failed! So it seems the...

Re: SOLVED: DLNA connection and database problems

It seems to work much better with the router firewall off, it hasn't disconnected yet (though there seems to be some faulty tracks in the library I need to look at I think - faulty metadata I think and tracks that have moved as they ended up in the wrong place). Looks like I will need to port-forwar...

Re: SOLVED: DLNA connection and database problems

I'm using Amahi 7 on a Minimal install of Fedora 19 (because the PC is x86). I'm looking into problems with the router (an Belkin AC1200) as well - I've just disabled it's firewall for the moment to see what happens. I tried reinstalling the app, that didn't work. I've also tried re-installing the e...

Re: SOLVED: DLNA connection and database problems

All the shared file folders have the correct owner and permissions.

The minidlna log file is only 83 bytes!

I'm at a complete loss at the moment!

Re: SOLVED: DLNA connection and database problems

I've just tried reading the log as Root - still get Permission Denied! I don't use Greyhole - I don't think it's even installed (unless it's done it automatically). The Subsonic app wouldn't stream until I gave the Guest user access to the music files via it's app page - I've been thinking there may...

Re: SOLVED: DLNA connection and database problems

UPDATE: There doesn't seem to be anything wrong between the radio and the server - Subsonic runs absolutely fine (though that will change come late April when a fee gets charged for DLNA). miniDLNA again cut out, and is still refusing Windows Media Player with the message "The Remote Media library a...

Re: SOLVED: DLNA connection and database problems

Thanks Bigfoot65 Just doing some more troubleshooting - I've turned off the routers media server in case there was a conflictthere, I'm also trying Subsonic before the trial runs out in case the problem lies with miniDLNA. (which reminds me - I'm on my Kubuntu PC at the moment, however Windows Media...

Re: DLNA connection and database problems

Hi Bigfoot65. Thanks for your helps so far. I've followed your instructions and the database seems to have cleaned up now. I'm getting a signal strengh of 100% on the radio - it's practically the other side of the wall to the router!!! I've moved the media server though and I've connected it the rou...

SOLVED: DLNA connection and database problems

Hi again. I'm trying to get the DLNA service to run smoothly, however I'm running into a couple of problems that I can't seem to get answers for when searching the net for them. 1) - on the Internet Radio in the kitchen (a Pure Sensia radio) on the media server option it seems to disconnect from the...
