    Angry upnp server to dsm 320

    i've seen other posts that say i can stream music with mythtv to my dlink dms 320 - i've installed mythtv and can't figure **** out. i don't know how to tell it where my music files are, or how to tell it to serve them or anything.

    as you can tell, i'm a huge noob
    can anyone tell me what i have to do to get this to work?

    By default mythmusic uses /var/lib/mythtv/music.

    Put your music in there, and then go into the musicbrowser for mythmusic make sure it works.

    As for getting it going with UPNP, I want to say it will automatically export from the backend, but don't know for sure.

    Go into the settings menu and choose the music related option and with any luck it should generate a playlist based upon your selection.

    Take a look here:

    http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/index.php/UPnP

    and

    http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/index.php/DLinkDSM520-UPnP

    particularly.

    You need to make sure you have setup an external IP address in mythtv-setup if things are to be exported.

    • Make sure you set the proper external IP in mythtv-setup, otherwise you will be able to see your server via UPnP, but the file location urls will contain the default 127.0.0.1 IP address.
    • Make sure you have a value for MusicLocation set for your backend hostname if your frontend and backend are on different machines
    Exporting means "showing up" on the other machines such as your dsm-320.

    alright, i set the ip address and still nothing shows up either on this computer or on the dlink thing. i think i'm just going to uninstall everything and buy a wireless adapter for my speakers.

    thanks for trying to help me
