Bug Description

Binary package hint: rhythmbox

Rhythmbox in Ubuntu 9.04

Added DLNA/UPnP plugin (and installed python-coherence via synaptic package manager)

Xbox 360 displays Rhythmbox on correct IP address in the Xbox 360 Music Libary.

However, the connection times out when selecting Rhythmbox as the source from the Xbox 360 Music Library and the following message is displayed: "The connection to your computer was lost. Make sure your computer is turned on, connected to your network, and running media sharing software."

Subsequent connection testing from the Xbox 360 console shows that the Xbox 360 is connected to the network and also connected to the PC that has Rhythmbox running on it.

I can confirm that this happens for me as well. It seems like a bug to me, not just a question. The issue could either be in the rhythmbox plugin or upstream in python-coherence. It's not clear.

Why was this marked invalid? I think we should figure out where the problem is, first.

This is still an issue in 9.10, and it's probably due to a bug in Coherence. There's a commit in the upstream changelog that mentions a fix for the Xbox that is dated 10/25/2009: http://coherence.beebits.net/browser/trunk/Coherence/ChangeLog

affects: rhythmbox (Ubuntu) → coherence (Ubuntu)

I can confirm I have the same issue on Ubuntu 9.10.
By the way this is my first post on Launchpad. Anything else I can do to help solve this let me know I'm keen to have it solved.
