    Hi Team,

    I bought Seagate Home NAS 2TB which is supported by MiniDLNA for DLNA server.

    I am unable to see the DLNA server on my Sony Bravia 46EX520 TV. But I could see the Serviio server running on my Windows.

    Please give me a clue of the issue.

    Thanks & Regards,
    Aditya

    Hi Aditya,

    Do you mean you can't see it, or do you mean it claims that all the media files are corrupt?  I have had that problem with my Blu-ray player; Sony appears to have fixed later versions of their firmware so they don't need any fiddling.  If you can confirm, I'll give you a patch to try.

    Hi Chris,

    My Sony TV doesn't even list it.

    I logged into my my goflex shell, upgraded MiniDLNA to 1.0.25 (latest version) still I see same issue

    Then I restarted MiniDLNA in debug mode and restarted my TV, from the logs I infer that everything is proper from MiniDLNA

    upnphttp.c:160: debug: Client found in cache.
    upnphttp.c:948: debug: HTTP REQUEST: GET /rootDesc.xml HTTP/1.1

    All requests seem to be responded properly.

    Please provide some help.

    I'm sorry Ady, the fix I had was for corrupted files.  If you TV fails to see minidlna then I can't help you.

    I hope you find a DLNA solution that works for you :/

    Is the NAS connected via the same equipment as the PC? i.e. via the same switch/router?  It may be that you need to enable upnp-forwarding.
    Can you browse using upnp-inspector on a PC connected at the same location as the TV?
    Is it possible that firewall ports are not correctly set on the NAS?  miniDLNA uses port 8200 TCP and 1900 UDP.
