    Question Media Device List has lots of errors

    Using Mezzmo V4.1.3.22. I'm having some connection issues with my Samsung Blu-Ray player. I'm trying to use a wireless connection rather than Power-Plug. I've put a range extender near the blu-ray player and connected the player to one of its ethernet ports. Worked fine for a bit then disaster. I will address these issues after dealing with the Media Device List.

    Investigating the connection issues led me to check the Mezzmo Media Device list. What a surprise. It has several entries with the wrong IP address. Some had the same IP address. Some have the wrong MAC address. The IP address for the blu-ray player is 0.0.0.0 , etc.

    Clicking REFRESH caused some changes in the device list but they are still wrong.

    Is there a way to clear out the entire device list and then re-populate it?

    After awhile my brain kicked in and I read the HELP. It pointed out that you can delete entries and the entries will be repopulated when the devices next connect.
    So I'm trying that now.

    Hi Larry,

    You can delete all devices in the Media Devices list and your devices will get re-discovered when Mezzmo server is running. The recommended way to do this is to stop your Mezzmo server, delete all devices from the Media Devices dialog and then start your Mezzmo server again. Your devices will get re-discovered and re-listed in the Media Devices dialog. Check that IP addresses, MAC address and device profiles for the devices are OK. If any problems, let us know and we'll help out.

    I did delete all the entries in the Media Devices list and some stuff came back but the blu-ray player didn't and some of the entries were still wrong.
    AND THEN, I shut down that PC and brought up a new one. I also moved back to using the ethernet over powerlines connection rather than the wifi.
    After installing Mezzmo on the new PC and restoring its database, all is good. The device list is good. Videos and music play fine.

    I may try the wifi again, if I feel brave enough.....
