I am using Fedora Core 14 and installed mediatomb though the add software menu.
I started mediatomb (see below) it starts without errors, but my WD TV live plus media center doesn't see it when I search for media servers.
I was able to get it to connect and use PlayOn running on a Windows PC. I am able to ping the WD media center from the PC running mediatomb and I'm not sure what's happening.
I also executed the following:
route add -net 192.0.0.0 netmask 255.0.0.0 eth0
ifconfig eth0 allmulti
Does anyone have any advice?

Which version of mediatomb are you running on F14? Make sure it's 0.12.1-4 'cause previous ones had problems. Also, I noticed that mediatomb crashes on some playlists which have incorrectly translated special characters, like French and Italian accented letters. Personally, I found it easier to manually amend those playlists and it now runs fine. Also, open ports 1900 and 50500 TCP/UDP on your Fedora box.
