DLNA: "Paused" performed, but not reported by the server

diodorusdiodorus Posts: 23Members ✭✭


I'm running a Plex server on Win 10, and watching via DLNA on the Archos (android) app on a Sony Bravia TV.

My issue is that when I hit pause, the action is performed (the video actually pauses on the screen), but on the server side this is not recognized: the XML / server shows "generic player PLAYING". (I need this because of the integration with another programs: Plex2SmartThings)

Any ideas if this can be fixed?

    Advanced functionality like this won't work with DLNA clients.
    If your Sony is an 'Android TV' device, try to install the native Plex client app from the app store and use this.

    I would, if only the native Plex app would do 5.1 audio passthrough (on Sony TVs) and have an audio delay settings (this is relevant to any TV).
