    I finally get to install the minidlna, but i cannot see the media folders in the TV. My configuration is this:

    port=8200 (I didn't change anything)

    #network_interface=eth0 (I didn't change anything)

    media_dir= /media/diskname/folder 1

    media_dir= /media/diskname/folder 2

    media_dir= /media/diskname/folder 3

    friendly_name=Interesantes contenidos (Interesting stuff)

    album_art_names=Cover.jpg/cover.jpg/AlbumArtSmall.jpg/albumartsmall.jpg/AlbumArt.jpg/albumart.jpg/Album.jpg/album.jpg/Folder.jpg/folder.jpg/Thumb.jpg/thumb.jpg (I didn't change anything)

    inotify=yes (I didn't change anything)

    enable_tivo=no (I didn't change anything)

    strict_dlna=no (I didn't change anything)

    notify_interval=900 (I didn't change anything)

    model_number=1  (I didn't change anything)

    I start with this command: sudo minidlna -f /etc/minidlna.conf -d

    The media serves appars in the TV, but not the folders. I configure in thounsand ways with regedit. Sometimes when i start minidlna shows me an error in the files routes, but with this configuration it doesnt.
    I dont know what to do, I spend already some hours trying to make it  work. Please help….!!!!! I know i must be close to the and as i can see the media source in the tv…so close and so far…

    "media_dir= /media/diskname/folder 1"

    Did you change this, or is this just a representation of what you have?
    If you have spaces in the folder path, that may be a problem.
    I also notice a space before the folder path… I don't have this in my config.

    HTH, Craig

    Good catch, Craig.  Spaces before the path will cause a problem.  If the actual path contains a space, that should be fine.
