You’re putting the cart ahead of the horse.
Some devices won’t necessarily appear in the DLNA device list until they register themselves with the server (The MBL.)
Some other devices will register when the server “discovers” them.
The fact that your WDTV Live isn’t seeing the files is a different issue entirely.
You need to make sure that Twonky has indexed the files.
The easiest way to do that is to go to the Twonky Media page and look at the content via the web. If you see it there, then it is indexed.
BTW, Workgroup configuration has nothing to do with Twonky, so don’t worry about that.
OK, thanks to both contributors. On the first point all devices are in the same work group.
All has worked fine for a few months. I had a few glitches a couple of days ago when I uploaded some files to the MBL but I was unable to see them on either DLNA player. It was only when I did a “rescan” on the Twonky page that the MBL vanished from both devices.
Now, just in case I’m not giving you the correct info, I assume the “dashboard” is what I get to when I double click the MBL icon on my network window, and it opens up a page on my browser, which is Chrome BTW.
When you say I should look for the content “via the web”, do you mean registering with MioNet? As I have not done that yet. Finally, how do I ascertain whether Twonky has indexed the files?
Thanks for input and your patience.
