    maybe try running
    Code:
    sudo minidlna -R
    This should rescan your media directories for new/old media (which it should be doing automatically).
    And this is what it states...

    HTML Code:
    server@server:~$ sudo minidlna -R
    [sudo] password for server: 
    Media directory not accessible! [/Media/Baroni]
    Media directory not accessible! [/Media/Chiara]
    Media directory not accessible! [/Media/Configs]
    Media directory not accessible! [/Media/Monsters]
    Media directory not accessible! [/Media/Resource]
    Media directory not accessible! [/Media/Shared]
    Media directory not accessible! [/Media/Teaching]
    server@server:~$

    run this command and post up the results.
    Code:
    ls -la
    I am curious under what user miniDLNA is running as.
    Also did you download and install putty for your convenience? Putty would run on your laptop so that you can SSH into your linux box from the comfort of your sofa.

    It works, IT BEEEEEPing WORKS!!!

    I did a search for all miniDNLA and put it all in the trash - knowing I could easily restore it.

    Then I tried the new link and install

    HTML Code:
    This is what I did to share my MythTV media with the Sony BDP-S570:
     Add the unofficial MiniDLNA Ubuntu PPA:
            sudo add-apt-repository ppa:stedy6/stedy-minidna
    Update the APT package index:
            sudo apt-get update
    Install MiniDLNA:
            sudo apt-get install minidlna
    Edit the /etc/minidlna.conf file:
            sudo vi /etc/minidlna.conf
    
    Ensure the following in the config
    port=8200

    or

    Restart the MiniDLNA server, removing the existing media list:
            sudo /etc/init.d/minidlna stop
            sudo rm -r /tmp/minidlna
             sudo /etc/init.d/minidlna start:D:D:D:D
    Then create the auto start script:

    Code:
    #!/bin/sh
    
    # chkconfig: 345 99 10
    # description: Startup/shutdown script for MiniDLNA daemon

    case "$1" in
    start)  log_daemon_msg "Starting minidlna" "minidlna"
            start-stop-daemon --start --quiet --pidfile /var/run/minidlna.pid --startas $MINIDLNA -- $ARGS $LSBNAMES
            log_end_msg $?
            ;;

            start-stop-daemon --stop --retry 5 --quiet --pidfile /var/run/minidlna.pid

            exit 2
            ;;
    esac
    exit 0
    Make executable. I just open the hosting folder/directory using "Open as Administrator" then seklect the file/scropt and do a left click for properties and tick the "Execute" tab.

    The pain is all over!!!!

    PS, no I did not install Putty.... How do I, please???

    glorious what a fine moment. PUTTY is located here I just heard about something called 'screen' I am going to look into it, but I have utilized putty for over a decade now its simple and it works.

    I'm glad you got things to work. I decided to take your brute force method and apply it to my situation. Sure enough, now it autostarts! So I'm done too.
