I just set up the mediatomb server on my intrepid ibex server and a first test with my PS3 worked fine.
I want to buy an audio-renderer for my daughter. At the moment I prefer the Freecom Music Pal. Are there any known issues in combination with mediatomb or does it work just fine?
The Freecom Music Pal works just fine with mediatomb. Its actually a great device, very good value for money. The only issue is that at volume levels > 75% the box can buzz (physically and audibly) , especially with female voices on low bit rates like the 20Kbs for Radios 4's wma streams. Not a problem for a bedroom radio, can be an issue in a kitchen.
One thing to look out for: does the MusicPal work with enabled PS3 settings?
Maybe you could try setting the protocolInfo tag to "yes" in the config.xml and check if it still works, I think that'd be important for Andreas since he wants to use both devices.
The PS3 is not an issue. I just used it for testing. If there should be any trouble with the protocolInfo tag, I can reset it to "no".
I received the MusicPal today. I had only time for a quick test, but the MusicPal recognized the mediatomb-server right away and played the mp3s smoothly.
And the protocolInfo tag is still set to "yes".
