Media Server: "A DLNA protocol error (501) has occurred"

13 Replies 27,660 Views Created 02-06-2008

Has anyone come across this error before? Can it be fixed? I've never had it before until now... My laptop media server appears under the video/music/photos menus but when I click on it, the error pops up.

 

I've tried enabling and disabling the media server scan, as well as allowing and denying access to it from the PS3 on the laptop...

Hey,

 

Can you talk me through what you did in a little more detail?

 

I'm still getting no joy here and there seems to be little detail around on a fix / the error code.

 

Agree on that it mysteriously seemed to occur post most recent update.

 

Nothing else has changed in my household to give it any other reason to stop working!

 

Thanks,

Dino

You're asking advice from some one who posted here once almost 2 years ago and has never posted again, you know this right?

 

Edit: I'm pretty sure I'm talking to a first time poster who will never reply back to me or make another post here.

Ha, ha!

I don't suppose you know anything about this error or can point me in the right direction.

With almost 1400 posts I'm assuming you know your way around these boards!

I had the same problem. 

 

MY FIX:

 

I was using two networks on my PC; one was wireless and the other wired.  The wireless was conflicting with the DLNA protocol.  Once I stopped the wireless, it worked very well.  I'm sure it would have worked also if I had stopped the wired LAN connection, too.
