View Full Version : Feedback on interop with Yamaha RX-A3030

October 23rd, 2013, 11:44 PM

Stumbled on the KooRaRoo DLNA server. Impressive software!

Just to give you feedback that the version 2.1 cannot stream FLAC to the Yamaha RX-A3030. The AVR reports error. Tried both AVR pulling from KooRaRoo, or KooRaRoo initiating using "Play To". FYI, the RX-A3030 supports FLAC decoding.

Does not matter if transcoding is set enable/disabled. Wont work.

As reference - PLEX media server can stream the same FLAC file to the RX-A3030. Hope u can fix it.

Thank you for the positive feedback on the overall operations - I'm sure we can make FLAC going there.

First, can you please check that the device profile selected for the receiver is correct? To do that, please go to Devices pane and see what it says there in "Device definition". If it's not correct, please double-click on the device and select a Yamaha profile and see if that helps. If not, we'll work it out.

Device definition is "Yamaha AVR".

I turned on the logging, then attempted to play 1 file, then stopped logging. Found this wierd error (the file does actually exist in that path). Is the full file path too long?

Is D: a NAS drive? Perhaps it's a folder permissions issue - please see if this thread helps if that's the case: http://forum.kooraroo.com/showthread.php/2040-Cannot-play-files-from-your-NAS-but-they-work-from-a-local-drive

Please let me know.

Nope, local HDD (D:) on the same computer where KooRaRoo is installed.

More info. I found a couple of test .AC3 and .DTS files, and placed it on the drive, it works (KooRaRoo can PlayTo the Yamaha AVR)! The problem is narrowed to FLAC only it seems.

Dennis, thanks for the pointer, it was permission issue after all!

October 25th, 2013, 08:10 AM
I'm glad you've sorted it out! Local drives are less likely to have permissions issues, but they do happen of course.
