    Hi all,

    I have setup miniDLNA on my Debian 5 Box. I have edited the config file (see below) and my Xbox 360 can see the movies no problem. so i have succeeded in one of my tasks.

    My problem is i cannot see my audio through the xbox 360 like i can see the movies.

    Now obviously you can see i have the audio line commented out in the config at present but even if  i remove the comment i cannot see the files through the xbox.

    i have tried to restart my server and naturally if the debian server itself is restarted the miniDLNA service has been restarted too.

    I have noticed 2 odd thigns that i need help with if possible.

    1) when i add movies to the folder share on my debian box i dont see them on the xbox.

    2) if i comment out the movie line media_dir=V, /mnt/data/movies and uncomment the line #  media_dir=A, /mnt/data/Music Albums nothing changes at all, even if i restart the server i can still see the movies even though i have effectivly told the config not to?

    Can anyone help please?

    # * if you want to restrict a media_dir to a specific content type, you
    #   can prepend the type, followed by a comma, to the directory:

    #   + "V" for video  (eg. media_dir=V,/home/jmaggard/Videos)

    # set this to no to disable inotify monitoring to automatically discover new files

    # set this to yes to enable support for streaming .jpg and .mp3 files to a TiVo supporting HMO
    # set this to strictly adhere to DLNA standards.

    You need to rescan after you change your media_dir configs.  You can do that with the -R command line option to minidlna, or by removing the database.
