    I have a media receiver (Philips Streamium) that only works with UPnP servers. I have created a network attached storage device using a USB hard drive and a USB LAN NAS adapter. This is now working effectively as a NAS and will stream to windows media player perfectly well. However, it is not UPnP therefore it is not working properly with the Streamium, or with Twonky on a laptop attached to the same network. The Streamium device can 'see' the NAS, as can Twonky (which identifies as a ''basic' server), and it can see the media server shared SMB folders. It cannot however stream the media. The error that the Streamium throws is 'this is an empty list' when trying to access any shared folder. Twonky states ' cannot retrieve information from server'.

    Does anyone know if/how there is a soft way I can convert the USB NAS to meet UPnP requirement? My router does support UPNP, therefore this is not the issue, and I have tested this by attaching the NAS USB LAN directly to the Streamium via ethernet, which gives the same problem.

    If anyone has any ideas I would be very grateful.
