    Default Network Connected Devices won't show up in Mezzmo Android (Play to function)

    I just finished installing a new Chromebox that is running the OpenELEC version of XBMC. It's set up almost identical to my RaspPi that is also running OpenELEC. Wired Gigabit Connection. All other devices can see it on the network, including Explorer and browsing Shared folders. Shows up fine in Mezzmo and we have no trouble playing back from Mezzmo on the box itself.

    However, the Chromebox refuses to show up as a 'Device' in Mezzmo Android so I can't use the "Play To" function. The RaspPi running OpenELEC is showing and I can "Play To" that location. I have made sure to check the "Allow XBMC to be controlled by other devices on the Network". There are no firewalls set up on the device itself since I have wiped Google ChromeOS and installed OpenELEC on the HDD for a direct boot.

    I uninstalled the App from my mobile and reinstalled. Same result.

    As a footnote, I changed the name of the RaspPi in the XBMC interface so that I would be able to distinguish the 2 different XBMC locations from one another, but the old name continues to appear in Mezzmo Android. When I do a LANScan, the new name appears in the network scan, but Mezzmo can't see it. It is not affecting functionality on the RaspPi since I use Static IP addresses for wired connections in my home, but I wonder why Mezzmo is holding on to the legacy name as well as refusing to populate any new devices.

    Make sure you have turned on the setting under UPnP in XBMC's settings. You may have turned on the setting under Remote Control by mistake.

    Also, we tried changing the name of XBMC and we also did not see it change on Mezzmo server or Mezzmo Android. Looking at our logs, the XBMC app still delivers "XBMC" as the DLNA/UPnP name.

    Yes, that is selected. In fact, I have compared both of my XBMC boxes and they seem to be set up exactly the same. Is there a network setting that I could be missing?

    Mezzmo Android will not list a device if it is not a DLNA Digital Media Renderer (DMR). To check this, turn on logging in Mezzmo (Windows) and restart your Mezzmo server. Turn off your XBMC box and then turn it on again. Connect to Mezzmo server from this XBMC box and browse a playlist/folder. Then, stop your Mezzmo server and exit Mezzmo. Zip up all the logs and email them to us at support [at] conceiva [dot] com. This will help us understand what your XBMC box is advertising itself as. In your email tell us what IP address the XBMC box is.
