    Hi guys,

    been playing with clear.fi and dlna serevr on my Ubuntu server. I tried:L
    pms
    Serviio
    UShare
    minidlna
    but they all have the same issue:
    Server is displayed in clear.fi but is not selectable and no contents is displayed.
    Sharing using my Windows XP media server is just working fine...

    Any thoughts/hints/tips and tricks?

    It seems to work using Windows 7, but I wouldn't say it is working just fine. It can only see certain rips..and it can only play some of those when sharing. I can move those same rips to the A500 and they play fine. I think the app is buggy.

    The clear.fi app on the A500 seems to take a minute or two it seems like to find other clear.fi units. I've been playing with it to see if there is something that is causing it, but the W500 version seems to work really good with it I hear.

    Sadly: No..PS3 media server will not do the trick.. (Does not even show up as available server).
    At this point i'm even concidering installing Windows on my Ubuntu server (never thought that day would come ;))
