I am stuck with a peculiar situation at home, and would appreciate any help.
- Marantz NR1504 AV receiver, connected via PowerLan and Ethernet to the router/modem.
- Samsung SmartTV, connected via WiFi to the same router.
- Android smartphones, with BubbleUPnP, connected via WiFi to the same router.
- Synology DS414 connected via Ethernet directly to the same router.
Synology carries a collection of musical files, MP3 and FLAC. I could access this collection from the TV, the receiver and BubbleUPnP. I could play them directly from the receiver, play them using the TV using HDMI-returned sound, or use my smartphone to access the musical collection and play the sound with the receiver.
Synology serves the musical files using Media Server.
To summarise, the situation was like this:
- BubbpleUPnP could see the musical collection on Synology and could see the receiver.
- Receiver could see the musical collection on Synology and could see the BubbleUPnP.
- TV could see the musical collection on Synology.
Everything worked fine, until some moment. I didn't use all features all the time, so I don't know when exactly things went wrong. However currently the situation is like this:
- BubbleUPnP does not see Synology at all; it still sees the receiver.
- Receiver does not see Synology at all. It does see BubbleUPnP.
- TV can see Synology just fine, with all media files.
- Synology's Media Server shows TV, BubbleUPnP and receiver in Media Server > DMA Compatibility > Device List.
- Two DLNA channels work just fine: TV—Synology and BubbleUPnP—receiver.
- Two DLNA channels work one way: Synology sees BubbleUPnP and receiver, but not the other way round.
I wonder if there is a "standard" or recommended approach to debugging such configuration. Since it involves multiple vendors and devices and a rather complex network configuration, I wouldn't even know which technical support to ask. On the other hand, I believe there should be some knowledge in solving this kind of issues, and that's what I am looking for.
