Media Library - Network shows only "My shortcuts"
« on: April 07, 2015, 09:44:03 PM »
Suddenly our MED500X shows nothing under Media Library - Network. Only "My Shortcuts" is shown.

Following items are working fine:

* Internet time: OK
* Using UPNP various systems are shown: PC, Synology NAS. Video-files can be played, but no DVD functionality, etc.
* Internet radio works fine
* Mede8er is accessible from PC (NAS mode on): \\\HDD1
* Remote control ( is working
* Re-installed latest bootloader and firmware (4.0.6): still not working

Restarted the Router, PCs, Diskstation, etc.

What can I change or try to show the other machines on the LAN again in the MED500X?

This is a Network Discovery failure. It is usually caused by the lack of a local DNS proxy in your router. Change the Manual  DNS setting in the player to gateway, I.e the routers own IP.
