Plexserver does not find my HIFI Receiver

MStockiMStocki Posts: 1Members

recently I installed Plex on my macbook to feel a new media entertainment feeling. Unfortunately, my Plex server does NOT find my Pioneer VSX2012.
so far, I have rebooted my WIFI Router, restarted Pioneer, restarted PC.
Checked, that DLNA is enabled on the WIFI Router and Pioneer.. all is fine.

Just opposite, my Pioneer Receiver does find my Plex server and is able to stream the music.
but again, the more convenient way is not possible, because the Plex server on my macbook does not find my Pioneer receiver.

In comparison, iTunes does find my Pioneer immediately, being able to stream the music directly on my receiver, being the client.

Unfortunately, not the Plex,...

Hope, someone can help me

Many thanks

    @mstocki - Plex DLNA acts as a 'server', not a 'client'. It won't see other devices/servers. Other DLNA clients should only see the Plex server, as you describe.

    Server - HW: I7-4790K(Haswell), 16GB - SW: Win10 Pro + PMS v1.12.3.4973
    Misc. HW: HDHR Extend + 2TB RAID1(Intel Z87) + 4x4TB RAID5(QNAP TS-653Pro)
    Shares - From: 2  - To: 18(5) - Potential lifetime PlexPass data generating product customer!
    ISP: ~20mbps up/1TB monthly "cap" - (Monthly avg. xfer ~450gb)
    Search the Plex WIKI before asking silly questions.
