Thanks for the hint, I added it into the file and restarted the 
PMS service.

I'm not sure if it actually did anything though as nothing seems to have 

In the meantime however, shouldn't that have been added into the port in 

I can definitely say that the DLNA server isn't visible. I will check in 
the meantime to see if there is a setting somewhere maybe in the 
Preferences.xml file to turn on the visibility... unless anyone else has 
any ideas?
