Good morning, I have a "digicorder" from telenet (dc-ad2100) which I want to connect to my PC. I have the digicorder connected through an ethernet cable to the same network my PC is connected wireless. I can stream DLNA through serviio but I cant with windows media player. I think it is because the digicorder is not connected to the home network? It should as it is connected via ethernet but it doesnt show up on devices in my PC. I tried asking telenet but they cant help me so I was hoping you guys could. Thanks in advance!
From the information you gave in the comments, I guess that your receiver is a Digital Media Player (DMP), as opposed to a Digital Media Renderer (DMR). While a DMR can be remote-controlled from a Digital Media Controller (DMC), a DMP cannot.
Windows’ “Play To” feature relies on the target being a DMR. Windows Media Player acts as the DMC in this case.
