Debugging UPnP problems

I'm implementing a UPnP server and my SoundBridge is currently failing to connect, with the very useful "failed to connect" error message. Is there some secret way to get access to internal logs, so I can find out what the SoundBridge didn't like about the UPnP server? In particular, it ca...

Support mDNS lookups

I love that the SoundBridge uses Zeroconf/mDNS to announce itself as soundbridge.local, but it doesn't lookup mDNS names in Internet Radio URLs. My NAS runs lastfmproxy, so I added a radio preset to http://redbeard.local:1881/lastfm.m3u, but the soundbridge can't find that name. If I use the IP it w...

Yes, I've seen this too: http://forums.rokulabs.com/viewtopic.php?t=14616. My router generally issues the same IP, but I can replicate this by powercycling the router.

SoundBridge with Thecus N2100

I'm using a Soundbridge M1000 with a Thecus N2100 NAS. It was in a bundle called the Evesham MBox, with a DAAP/UPnP server on NAS, but I rapidly installed Debian on it and am currently rebuilding FUPPES.

Ogg Vorbis and FLAC please!

A large chunk of my CD collection is ripped as Ogg Vorbis and FLAC on my server. I'm currently using a transcoding UPnP server but my poor NAS struggles at times. Native playback of royalty-free formats with open source implementations should be a no-brainer, surely!

Update

Okay, it appears that CurrentTrackMetaData will never send events, but the LastUpdate state variable does. However, I've verified that it doesn't on two machines, one running Windows XP with the Intel UPnP tools (both the universal control point and the AV wizard), and one running Linux with gupnp-u...

No change events on UPnP

Hi, I was going to write a small app so that I know what song is currently playing on my Roku by using the UPnP interfaces. However, I just discovered that the CurrentTrackMetaData state variable isn't a source of events. This means I can't rely on being notified and would need to poll every ten sec...

Found problem: soundbridge buggy

I found the problem. When the SoundBridge was turned on yesterday, it was given the IP 192.168.1.66. This morning I had to power-cycle the router (which is also the DHCP server) and the SoundBridge was given a new IP: 192.168.1.70. The zeroconf magic updated correctly, but the UPnP advertising was s...

Cannot discover device over UPnP

Hi, I got a SoundBridge this week, and I can't seem to probe it using UPnP. I'm trying gupnp-universal-cp (a general UPnP browser), and I get this error on startup: ** (gupnp-universal-cp:27415): WARNING **: Failed to GET http://192.168.1.66:80/DeviceDescription.xml (1.66 being the soundbridge) Is t...
