Xbox 360 DLNA

Another one for you.

The XBOX 360 seems to rescan the folders on the EX4 everytime you change folder. Sometimes taking up to 10 minutes to display the folder content of video files (400gb+ worth). Once it’s loaded the videos play extremely well but it’s the load time of the folder contents that’s the bugbear.

I was curious as to whether this was a limitation with the Xbox itself or whether it was the NAS DLNA? I.e. is there a setting somewhere that makes sure the XBOX doesn’t reload the folder content everytime?

I don’t know about the 360, but other DLNA media servers have options to change if you want to re-scan on each start. You can check if the Twonky server has it.
