    Hi all,

    I am owning a HP MediaVault 2120 with a pre-Installed Firefly DLNA-Server. For the use with ordinary PC’s it does a great job but in combination with my new Media Receiver 300 (The IPTC streaming client from T-Home) it doesn’t work.

    The problem is the MR 300 and the client software called “Medien-Beta”. The only kind of streaming server recognized us a Windows Media Player 11, nothing else works, even no simple samba shares.

    So here my question:
    Is there a more current version of Firefly which behaves like a Windows Media Player 11 from client point of view? If not is this a already a sceduled feature?

    PS:
    I visited the Firefly Wiki, it looked like a dry desert, the main-page was last updated in the year 2006. Is the Firefly-community still activ?

    Thanks in advanced,
    Mischa

    Firefly is a DAAP server, DLNA is based on UPnP. Firefly is not a DLNA compliant server.

    WMP uses UPnP

    UPnP was in the process of being added to Firefly but implementation is not complete.

    The community is still active but there is no ongoing development work.
    The sole developer either doesn’t have the time or lost interest with the project.
