    minidlna not working

    I installed minidlna a couple of years ago and it worked, but haven't really used it for a long time (maybe updated server version between), now it doesn't work, my server is not in the source options on the TV.

    I have tried suggestions from threads on this forum,
    sudo service minidlna stop
    sudo minidlnad -d -R
    sudo service minidlna start

    which all seem to execute OK, but still I see nothing on the TV, any suggestions?

    No one here can provide support if you're really running 11.04. It reached end of life many years ago now.

    Do you have a minidlna.log? If so, does it show any errors?

    I find that deleting /var/cache/minidlna/files.db before forcing minidlna to rebuild its database can sometimes help.

    The server and the TV are both in the same IP subnet, right? Like both share the same wifi router.
    If you ask for help, do not abandon your request. Please have the courtesy to check for responses and thank the people who helped you.

    Many thanks for your reply. I removed minidlna and reinstalled and now it is working!
