The Rough Guide to the Hifidelio

UPnp (Universal Plug and Play – Streaming audio)

This is a technology making streaming AV possible.
If you want to stream between 2 devices both must be UPnP enabled.

From de website
The UPnP™ Forum is an industry initiative designed to enable simple and robust connectivity among consumer electronics, intelligent appliances and mobile devices from many different vendors. As a group, we are dedicated to making the connected home and lifestyle mainstream experiences for consumers - and great opportunities for the industry.

Of course UPnP has its own nomenclature:
Server: streams the music to UPnP clients in the network,
Renderer: a device with can play the music received from the server
Control Point: the remote control so you can tell the server what to play, etc.

Enabling UPnP on the HF

In the network section > services >
Put all the UPnP options on.



Now your HF is enabled to stream from or to another UPnP enabled device.
Choose Music Server



and you get an overview of all the streaming devices in your network.


Select a server and the HF will play the music on this server (probably)

Network Neighbourhood

After enabling the UPnP, the HF become visible in your network neighbourhood. In fact you see two.


Hifidelio Pro is the webserver, click it and you get the Leonore interface.
Hifidelio Pro UPnP is the TwonkyVision configuration page, you get an access denied error if you try to open it.
It is possible to get access to it.

Enabling UPnP on your PC (XP)

You can enable UPnP on your PC.

Open the Add/Remove Programs control panel, and then click on Add/Remove Windows Components in the sidebar. Scroll down and find Networking Services, highlight it, and then click Details.


In the Networking Services window, ensure that the Internet Gateway Device and UPnP User Interface options are checked. If they are not, check them to enable them, as shown below, and then close out back to the control panel.


Next, in the control panel, open the Administrative Tools and then open Services. Scroll down until you find the SSDP Diskovery Interface. If the Status is not Started, double-click on SSDP Discovery Interface to open the service properties. Change the startup type to Automatic, then close the properties. Now, right-click on SSDP Discovery Services, and choose Start from the popup menu. The SSDP Discovery Service will then be running and start each time you boot.


After enabling UPnP and starting the SSDP Discovery Service, it may take up to 15 so 20 minutes for before UPnP enabled devices are shown in your Network Connections and My Network Places.

Using UPnP devices in Windows Media Player (XP)

If you have a WMP below version 11 you probably needs to install WMC (Windows Media Connect) first.

Choose Media library > Options

Choose sharing

And the HF should become visible as a media server.
In XP that's all what happens. XP can't act as a client so it won't play from other servers.

Enabling UPnP on your PC (Vista)

UPnP is enabled by default

Streaming not working

If you have some streaming devices connect by wire and some connected wireless, it might happen that streaming between them won't work. Some routers simply don't bridge the two networks correctly.
A simple check is to connect them the same way (all wired or all wireless)

You can also check your router (AP) if there is a setting for “multicast”. If so put it on.


If you have problems connecting to the HF the following tools might be of help.


UPnP Tester is an experimental tool which lists all the available devices compatible with the Universal Plug-and-Play protocol including Internet Gateway Devices (IGDs). As soon as the program starts, it searches for available devices then it updates the list as devices are plugged or unplugged. The status window displays miscellaneous notifications and the IP addresses as they are assigned. You can also select a device or a service from the list and click Properties... to get some information about it or to query a service. In the properties, double-click any URL to open it in your default browser.
