    I just purchased a Philips TV with DLNA support. I installed fuppes from a packet repository of openSUSE 11.3. Now I have it running and when I connect to the website of fuppes, I see the name of the TV in system information and it shows as a MediaRenderer. I also have a number of directories listed with .mov and .wav files, some of these are in subdirectories.
    In the device settings I only have a default. I do have quite a number of file settings, however the extension .mov (=video/quicktime) is missing. One of the directories that are configured contain a number of .wav files.
    The TV does not show any of the files and keeps looking for the DLNA server.

    Any hints?

    I used Wireshark to monitor the traffic. I see the TV sending a UDP multicast to
    I see with netstat that UDP 1900 is associated with fuppesd.
    However fuppesd is not responding.
    In the multicast I see a URL
    Entering this URL in a browser gives back the xml file.
    After this I stopped fuppesd and I got an error message:
    *** glibc detected *** /usr/bin/fuppesd: double free or corruption (fasttop): 0x0000000000667a10 ***
    and a backtrace which I saved.
    After that I started fuppesd again and I saw exchange of information between fuppesd and the TV.
    Also the above mentioned xml file.
    But on the TV I don't see a connection with my PC server.

    Any hints?
