    Hi

    I can not get my mediatomb working as i want, it does not feed my TV nor
    does it recognize my movies or music.

    My intranet consist of a YV, Samsung UE46C5105, a NAS, Dlink DMS320, with media tomb.

    On the NAS I have a number of contents, pictures, movies and music collected in the directory UPnP.
    The pictures are all in jpeg format, these I can see and show
    The music is in wav and mp3

    1)
    How do I force media tomb to make a rescan?
    I have tried to kill the media tomb, removed the mediatomb.db file and restarted media tomb
    but it only finds the picture directories under UPnP, even if I tell media tomb in the WEB UI to rescan
    the UPnP directory.

    2)
    At one point I could see the music files but was not able to play them.

    3)
    The TV is DLNA certified, however according to the DLNA certificate it was supporting
    Image:
    JPEG_SM
    Audio:
    LPCM
    Video:
    MPEG_PS_NTSC
    MPEG_TS_SD_NA
    MPEG_TS_SD_NA_ISO
    MPEG_TS_SD_NA_T

    But i assume the TV is capable of handling more than PCM for the sounds.
    But do i need to transcode the music from wav/mp3 into LPCM ?
    If so, how do I write this in the config.xml ?

    /Stefan

    I start Mediatomb in Terminal by typing;     mediatomb restart
    You can see other options by typing:          mediatomb -h
