The port the Pinnacles use to access the UPnP is 49152 (same as the web interface) as described in par. 5.3 (Port) in the MediaTomb manual. What did I miss?
I guess the question is - is the Pinnacle a UPnP device? The Web UI is just an interface for managing server content and is not for player devices; in order to operate with MediaTomb the players must support the UPnP protocol / UPnP AV architecture.
the Pinnacle is indeed a UPnP device - the 200 is on the supported list. Just after I send my message I remembered that the Pinnacle has some kind of UPnP "auto search" facility (which has to be enabled by hand) - and that showed MediaTomb in the list along with an icon. <slams head against table>
Don't know why it didn't work when I added the server manually...
Now almost everything seems to work just fine, browsing the PC directories, playing audio and video, the only thing which doesn't work is the button "Video" - the Pinnacle seems to start loading the list, but it probably is way too big for the Pinnacles memory (400 GB of video files) so the the player crashes. If I go through the PC directories by hand everything works normally (but of course I didn't try putting all 400+ gigs in one long directory/list).
Ah.. its even on the devlist hehe, sorry, did not have it in my head. I think the Pinnacle also supports the http based servers like Oxyl, so when I you added MT manually it probably thought that it is not dealing with a UPnP server.
As for the Video list - if your videos are organized or named in a specific manner you could probably write a custom import script to create a better hierarchy.
Anyway, I'm glad to hear that it works.
I forgot to mention that this method worked for the Pinnacle 200 - the older 1000 model doesn't have this "Show UPnP AV Servers" box in the "Advanced Settings" dialog; and therefor it still doesn't work.
