Title: Removing media sources
Post by: tryingitout on August 05, 2013, 04:48:35 pm
Hi - I have a basic 10.04 release install, but the linuxmce is picking up media/movies from other systems (e.g. DNLA TV, playon) whereas I want it to only see its own hard drive and the SAN.  I have checked around over the week and can't find any fix.  I can't find anything in the WebAdmin system either ?  

Its cluttering up my display with dozens of other movies/videos/clips that I don't want the LinuxMCE system to see.

Any ideas ?

these upnp services are coming from djmount. If you kill djmount, these services will disappear. Alternatively, you can also disable the DLNA media sources.

Thanks Thom.

I want to keep some of the DNLA media sources going.

How do you stop djmount permanently ? ie. surviving a reboot.

renaming djmount to djmount.disabled, or similar.

We do accept patches to be able to enable/disable upnp support e.g. in the web admin.

As an alternative to disabling functionality (that you might need later) I would suggest separating the networks, so that LMCEs DHCP only controls the relevant part of the network, but the DNLA TV and Playon is kept on the "outside"...

(let me try to draw a map, perhaps that's easier)

Internet --- Gateway (local router) ---- Local net (outside LMCE) ---- LMCE Core -------------------- Local LMCE managed net
            Example IP configuration:
All IPs                  /102.168.1.1               192.168.1.x                       192.168.1.200/192.168.80.1          192.168.80.x
                           Router                     DNLA TV (192.168.1.10)                                                      MD 1 (192.168.80.40)
                                                         Playon (192.168.1.20)                                                         MD 2 (192.168.80.41)
                                                         SAN (192.168.1.2)                                                              Weborbiter (192.168.80.42)

You would need to enable LMCE autodiscovery to "see" the SAN share - or alternatively put the SAN inside the LMCE "domain" (i.e. 192.168.80.??) and then forward relevant ports/services enabling the local-outside units to access the SAN...

And then be aware of where you place other units (PCs, iPads, Printers, etc.) - some forwarding/mapping of ports could be needed when units are on different local nets.. But a few simple rules should cater for all :)
