Description

For example if you start Twonky Beam on the phone after ST is loaded - ST doesn't see the device in Settings->UPnP and in LAN app on homescreen. But if you have Twonky Beam on before starting ST - it detects it.

The same with DMS if new server is on before ST start - it finds it...

History

#1 Updated by Leonid Protasov almost 7 years ago

SSDP either should periodically discovery new devices or check net if you enter LAN app.
Entering LAN app way will put less stress on low power systems like RPI. But periodical checking can be implemented as option turned off by default in settings.

  • Tracker changed from Bug to Feature

Update on the issue. When Windows starts it after some time advertises it's UPnP shares so eventually ST gets the list. So looks like periodical check is not needed.

It's just good to force SSDP request if you enter LAN app on home screen so you don't need neighbours to advertise themself (speed up things).

  • Subject changed from ST can't find new UPnP neighbours when entering LAN app on homescreen to Refresh UPnP neighbours list when entering LAN app on homescreen

#4 Updated by Andreas Smas almost 7 years ago

  • Tracker changed from Feature to Bug
  • Subject changed from Refresh UPnP neighbours list when entering LAN app on homescreen to Correctly respond to new UPnP devices on LAN
  • Status changed from New to Accepted
  • Found in version set to 4.3
  • Platform set to Linux

Refreshing will not help if you have items on the home page. UPNP should be able to detect new devices if they appear on the LAN. So this is more of a bug in Showtime

That way it'd be cool to make devices sticked to homescreen be grayed out or dissapeared. And appear or ungreyed if they come up on the net.

I've tested having Showtime running and then starting minidlna on another machine and it instantly appears in the "Discovered resource on local network" page. So I think the Showtime support is OK
