I recently got a WD Sentinel DX4000 (12 TB) and have been slowly but surely been setting it up.
Most functions appear to be working well now - backups, updates, etc, - but I am having problems with streaming media.
The DX4000 is connected via Ethernet to series of devices. When I first tried it, I could not see any of my shared media on any of the devices, even though I had enabled sharing during setup. Based on a suggestion I read on this Community, I installed serviio ( www.serviio.org) and set that up to stream my media. At the moment it is set on the default setting of standard DLNA device.
Now, I can see and play my media on my Sony PS3, which shows that the serviio is probably working well.
But I still cannot play music files from my Denon AVR 4308CI, which is connected by Ethernet. The Denon lists the Serviio server, and when I click on it I get a choice of folders: Music, Pictures or Playlists. But that is where it sticks - if I click on the folders it does not progress any further. I cannot see what is in the folders. It is as if I am hitting a dead button. (This is the same symptom that prompted me to install Serviio.)
By contrast, on my Denon AVR I can successfully see all folders and play music from my ailing WHS HP EX487, which I am trying to retire but is still connected,
Is there some kind of incompatiblity between the DX4000 (or WSS 2008 R2) and the Denon Receiver? Are there settings somewhere that I should change to allow the Denon to “see” the media files from the server?
