[SOLVED] MiniDLNA Seems Not To Be Not Working - Advice Please
I've been running my VBA for around a year and half and it's running VB2.0 (after upgrade) in a nice and stable manner for music playback. However, up to now, I've never worried about DLNA distribution of pics or movies cos my Sony telly didn't play nicely as a DLNA client. However, my new HUMAX PVR (connected to Home network via Homeplugs) does so I thought it was about time to start pulling my pics down from storage/pictures via miniDLNA. Unfortunately, my HUMAX can't see any DLNA servers and neither can the rest of my network devices.
A quick look at the DLNA Server Log via the VB GUI shows I appear to have problems! The log starts in March 2011 and for a few days, it reported the following each day:
[2011/03/21 07:33:49] minidlna.c:773: warn: Starting MiniDLNA version 184.108.40.206 [SQLite 220.127.116.11].
[2011/03/21 07:33:49] minidlna.c:861: warn: HTTP listening on port 8200
[2011/03/21 17:58:19] minidlna.c:153: warn: received signal 15, good-bye
However, according to the log, for the last few months, the following error is being generated several times per day
[2012/05/12 17:54:11] minissdp.c:324: error: sendto(udp_notify=8, 192.168.1.101): Invalid argument
Presumeably, this is the reason why I can't see the DLNA server from elsewhere on the network.
Can anyone suggest how I can get miniDLNA working since I don't think a need a full-featured DLNA server like Serviio. Should I use the VBA GUI to rescan the DLNA server or Reset to Defaults, or is there somewthing else I should be doing? Sorry if this is a basic question but I'm not terribly familiar with all this DLNA stuff
Upgrade your VB to the latest software and reboot. See if that helps.
As usual, your advice (plus a DLNA rescan from the VBA GUI) has done the trick. My VBA is now streaming photos nicely to my telly via my new Humax HDR-FOX-T2. As always, thanks for your help
