RELEASE Generic Media Renderer (DLNA Speakers). Cheap Sonos Alternative (Update V2)


(Simon) #1010

@ule, are you aware if something does not work at the moment with your good code?

(Ule) #1011


I have not problems with my speakers.

some times the hub can be blocked to receive dlna messages, just disconnect and reconnect the hub (this can happen with some update )

Try to check if your speakers are in DLNA mode , check with some app like audioremote from sony

If you still have problems I suggest to change the ip of the speaker with your router, its better if you assign a static ip to each speaker

Just adding to what some people experienced I have two Ggmm speakers that were working fine and stopped maybe two weeks ago, hub and router and speakers rebooted, very strange

Did anyone ever answer your question? I have the Riva Arena and it’s not being detected.


No, sorry.

(Gene Clark) #1015

My apologies if this has been covered - didn’t find it in any searches. Is it not possible to specify the IP address of the speaker? Sometimes device discoveries go smooth and sometimes not so much.

(Tony Phillips) #1016

Is there a reason that the Riva Arena wouldn’t show up in the discovery? I’ve scanned through the code and it looks like it should show up, but I haven’t had time to dig into the code completely.
If it helps, here’s a screenshot of the device from a uPNP scanner:

How long did you run discovery… It can sometimes take a couple of mins.

Also, I am using Samsung R1 and remember that I had to fully reset them at times before they were discovered.

If it says DLNA on the box I dont see a reason why the speaker would not work ultimately…

(Tony Phillips) #1018

I’ve run the discovery several times with the times ranging from about 5 minutes to leaving it on the nightstand over night.
I’ve done a full reset and tried discovering while playing music. I noticed someone mentioned making the IP static. I’m going to try that when I get home, but the IP hasn’t changed since I first connected the speaker,m so I don’t have high hopes for that.

I have notice , some time the hub hang up the lan messages, just unplug and plug again, if this does not works, try to change the ip address of each speaker, you can achieve this with a static ip address in your router.

@ule - I’ve had to remove all of my DNLA devices using this DH from ST. My hub was freezing ever few days and ST said it was because of this DH. Anyone else report this? It’s been a couple months since I removed them, no hub freezes.

(Ule) #1021

Hi, I have 10 speakers with 2 min refresh, but no freeze problems, my Hub is ver 2.
