Hi All,

I used to be able to use Control:PC as a zone to play Sooloos music on the desktop PC.

Since moving house and setting up the system again, there is no longer a 'Desktop PC' option in the drop down Zone box in Control:PC. It shows 'MS200' and 'C10 Browser', but no 'Desktop PC'.

Does anyone know how I lost it, or how I get it back?

There has been no change to the PC, and the only network change is that the Control:10 and MS200 are now a linked zone on a wifi bridged sector of the network, while the QNAP (Core, Store) and PC are plugged directly in to the router.


Thanks,
Jason.

Look at the wifi bridge to see if there are any settings like multicast - I suspect that it is filtering or blocking multicast packets needed for, amongst other devices, Sooloos discovery.

Thanks Ian.

I noticed in another thread you suggested something similar, and that the Apple wifi boxes don't drop multicast packets.
I might give one of those a go and see if things improve, as I have an Airport Express and an AppleTV not being used that I can try.

Many Thanks,
Jason.
