    Hello,
    I have an BRAVIA KDL-46EX720 an like to use miniDLNA with an Linux System.
    All works fine until I try to Browse foulder. If I do that the Sony told me that the are no Items to view and the TV returns to main DLNA Menue.
    On an IPad Touch with MLPlayer I get an error like "Reading Error" an the application returns to start.
    (Can send the correct words in error later, cause I'm not at home yet)
    Did somebody get the same errors? Or any hints for me?
    If xou need more informations like Logs I can post.
    Kind Regards
    Marco

    I'm talking about the charset.
    Like charset=iso-8859-1

    *PUSH*
    After one year living with mediatomb i try again the minidlna.
    The new version shows now the korrect debug output and the application (i.e. 8Player) didn't crash.
    But still foulder ore files with ä/ö/ü and so on woulden't be shown in Media-Browser. (Only an Icon)
    After many testing I thing the reason ist the filesystem charset.
    On Mediatomb I've to set only this:
    <filesystem-charset>ISO-8859-1</filesystem-charset>
    and it works.
    Isn't it posible to to build a testversion of minidlna witch handle the filesystem in ISO-8859-1?
    So I ready to test it. :)
    Minidlna is more easy to use and supports more devices like xbox then mediatomb. So please can anybody help me out?
    Thx and Kind Regards
