I installed XBMC on my iMac to host as a media center. I enabled UPnP in XBMC. However my BD player cannot see any media center (it can see the Mac as a computer). I know the BD player support dlna. Maybe the XBMC is not broadcasting? Is there another way I can tell if it's working, e.g. from a PC?

Update: I installed XBMC remote control on my Android phone and it says no host detected, so it's more like my XBMC's problem not the BD player.

  • @jherran Firewall on my Mac? Where is it and what should I check? – LWZ Dec 13 '14 at 17:45
  • System Preferences → Security & Privacy → Firewall. You have to check is Firewall is on, and if it's blocking your XBMC (this under options). – jherran Dec 13 '14 at 17:56
  • @jherran Yes the firewall is ON and it's not blocking XBMC (allowing all traffic). – LWZ Dec 13 '14 at 18:41
