Streaming between two HDR-Fox T2s - box 1 can see box 2, but box 2 can't see box 1

Hello folks,

Hoping someone might be able to help me out as this is driving me mad!

Hithero I had a HDR-Fox T2 (let's call that one HDR #1) and a HD-Fox T2 both running custom firmware. I was happily able to stream recordings between the two of them.

I decided to upgrade the HD-Fox T2 to a second HDR-Fox T2 (let's call that HDR #2). I've installed custom firmware on it etc.

However whilst my old HDR-Fox T2 (HDR #1) can see and stream the recordings on the new HDR-Fox T2 (HDR #2), the new HDR-Fox T2 (HDR #2) can't see recordings on the old box (HDR #1).

Content share is set to on on both of them, both having a working internet connection (as iPlayer etc works).

Has anyone had anything similar? Anything obvious things to check? Is the fault more likely to be with HDR #1 (the old one) rather than HDR #2 (the new one)?

The only thing that is obviously different between them is that older box #1 has a newer loader a7.34 than the new box (which has a7.30). Not sure if this makes a difference?

Thanks to anyone in advance as it's driving me nuts!

Have you set a different DLNA server name on each of them (dlna-servername package)?
I don't know if it's strictly necessary but it definitely makes working out which one you can see a lot easier.
Other than that, perhaps try a DLNA database reset (via webif->Diagnostics->DLNA Reset)

Black Hole

May contain traces of nut
So this shouldn't be in the CF section then?

My shares between three HDRs and one or two HDs are all done with Samba mounts - so much better: access to transport control, set and access bookmarks, delete remotely...
