Please help me. Trying to connect to intel mediaPS3 but when I click on the icon under media on ps3 an error message on the top right hand corner of the screen appears with this message: DLNA protocol error (7531) has occurred.

I'm getting the exact same problem. I thought it was to do with wireless and it's settings but I recently bought Netgear powerline plugin HDX101's which use your home's electrical ringmain to get a wired network connection and they don't solve the problem.

Any ideas?

So, I had this problem with my new PS3. I connected my Mac using MediaLink (by all accounts good software) and switched on the HDMI output on my TV. Expecting to see a mountain of media, I was instead met with a small grey box in the corner of the screen with your typical cryptic error message: DLNA Protocol Error 7531. The fix is really, really simple, at least it was for me. Just restart the ‘service’, as it were, on the PS3. Settings -> Network Settings -> Media Server Connection. Your files should be showing up and the error gone. If not, oh well. Keep plugging away. :-) Update: 6/27/08 12:30PM: This assumes wholeheartedly that the problem is with your PS3. You should obviously make sure everything is working properly first (for instance, from a DLNA-capable phone or other PC, etc.). And by restart, I mean to select “Disable”, back out of the menu, and then go back in and “Enable.” That fixed it immediately for me. You may have to restart your DLNA service on the server as well. Good luck. Please let me know if this works! This is one of those topics you search endlessly for and find no real answer (which I am trying to mitigate.)

I have received this error after aquiring an QNAP TS109 11 dlna Nas server and connecting it to my router. I researched on the PS3 for media server again and the protocol error disappeared, so it looks as though any period of long inactivity causes this error to come up, it may need to update on the software on the PS3 to fix this problem. Hass anybody reported this problem to Sony?

Hi all!

 

my configuration.

 

Twonky Server installed on DLINK DNS-323.

DLINK DNS-323 is connected via cable to router.  ps3 is also connected via cable to router.

 

i receiver the dlna 7531 error when my harddrives of the dlink dns-323 are in sleep mode (not the dns-323).

 

if i activate the harddisks (e.g. connecting to them using my laptop or pc), i don't receive the error on my ps3 (i have to restart the ps3 if the error occurs).

 

following solution.

if the error occurs, navigate in the ps3 menu to scan media server... after that everything works...

 

regards from vienna

 

Mario

Try this:

- disabling UPNP en your router.

- Also open the following ports in your router (for your ps3):

      - tcp 80, 443, 5223,

      - udp 3478, 3479, 3658

Fix for 7531 error & Medialink is:

1) Stop, and uninstall Medialink (Right click on the medialink icon in system preferences)

2) Install the latest comboupdate for your OS X (can be downloaded from apple's website). Restart mac after.

3) Download "OnyX" application (From here ->)

4) Navigate to "automation" menu, and check all of the boxes, instead of browser's history.

5) Start the operation in OnyX, restart will be required after.

So I have been getting this error code and have tried everything listed to fix it. It works offline but not online it just closes me out of the game or whatever when I start. Sometimes it works sometimes it dosen't. I don't know what to do and need some help. Sony really needs to fix this. My xbox dosen't do this. I have really good connection and don't know what it could be. Xbox has red ring playstation has error codes. I have been through both now. I have had this ps3 for about 6 months it didn't do this intell after the recent update. It only dose it to certian games too.

@Kurisu87 - Just wanted to say thanks.  Searched for Error 7531, found your post, disabled and re-endabled Media Server Connection, and blammo!!  My entire music collection is back online.

 

Incidentally, I'm streaming media from my ReadyNAS NV+ using Twonky v5 - a custom bin from Super Poussin.  Now everything works great except my iTunes 9 playlists don't show up.  It's a Twonky issue - apparently iTunes changed ther XML schema slightly in iTunes 9, just enough to break support for playlists in Twonky.  Bummer. At least I have my collection available on my PS3 thoug, and there's always Pandora for mixing it up!

 

Cheers :)
