Interesting! haven't loaded the new firmware as I usually wait a while to see what the fall out looks like across the forums before upgrading.

Yeh I went through the process with Vera support, they are quite helpful but in the end after we tried everything but didn't get it working and then they basically ghosted with "it's a plugin" as the reasoning. Realistically though DLNA should be included so can only hope they bring something in as part of the actual Vera support OS at some point :)

Will keep following this topic anyhow.

I uploaded the new firmware and selected the option to turn off uPNP security.  Sadly, no luck.  The plugin still does not work.

Sorin, I also tried the script you gave, but had no luck there either.  I didn't give an update earlier as I was waiting on this new release with the option to bypass the security.

Hi Marcus,
Can you tell me where that option you mentioned is located? I don't see it in settings anywhere.
Thanks

On the latest IOS app, it's in settings/security.

Thanks. I use Windows and control the Vera through my web browser, or Imperihome on my Android phone.   :-\

Nah. This is a total dead end. I've been investigating the use of an Amazon Echo dot (~$40 or less) coupled with the "House Band" skill and J River Media Center. Haven't done more than any initial research, but it looks promising.
I realize this is probably not even close to what you hope to accomplish, however, it could be a pretty solid alternative.
Good luck.

Yeh sounds like this is a dead end, I do rate the Vera community plugins but in all honesty some features need to be built into the base Vera software this is one of those things  :)

A home automation system that can't do DLNA is pretty bad.  it's a basic feature and should be part of the core system.  This plugin was really vital and the fact that a security update broke it is something Vera support should be investigating.

hopefully with the new direction they will see this as an important feature.

Yeh completely agree, I mentioned this in the new thread discussing the direction of Vera as one of the default features/skills that need to be included that can then be used from a new advanced logic engine.
